There’s a Charmin toilet paper commercial that I hear constantly on the music app Pandora.
It says that people are told they “shouldn’t talk about going to the bathroom in public.” Okay, cute! No? But what I really think the company means is that you “shouldn’t talk in public about going to the bathroom.”
Some others on the Internet have picked up on this but they don’t have a column to put it in. So let me take care of this once and for all.
It’s okay with me if people talk in public about going to the bathroom. But it’s not all right if they go to the bathroom in public and talk about it — unless, of course, they are on the golf course and their shot happens to land behind a tree.
