Happy World Toilet Day

Who knew? Today was World Toilet Day, and I didn't even get my Toilet cards in the mail. Oh well, there's always next year.

In celebration, international sewage experts (there's something to aspire to) called for an end to flushing toilets. It seems we're causing some poor sap to die of thirst every time we flush, so some are proposing toilets that use no water. Nice. Of course the more traditional bureaucrats have held to the old stand-by toilet flushing tax to help save the sewage.

Before you think this is too funny, remember that here in the great old U.S of A your government regulates the size and capacity of your toilet, and has passed a law banning incandescent light bulbs by 2014.

I can't seem to find the power to do any of these things in the Constitution. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough.
