Shit-house Poetry


Poetry in the loo can cut down on paper use too, says a Japanese group campaigning to save toilet paper as part of the country's battle against global warming.

Simply pasting a "toilet poem" at the eye level of a person seated in the cubicle can help cut toilet paper use by up to 20 per cent, a study by the research centre Japan Toilet Labo showed.

"That paper will meet you only for a moment," reads one poem.
"Fold the paper over and over and over again," says another.
Or just: "Love the toilet".

Now the group is looking to have its posters displayed in 1,000 public toilets.

Perhaps J Cosmo could come up with an offering?


  1. I have to agree - J. Cosmo for the shitee

  2. I KNOW J Cosmo could do better than, "Love the toilet".

    Though I have to admit, being without a toilet for the 3 days of my plumbing snafu made me 'love the toilet' more than I ever dreamed possible.

  3. Not sure I understand this....

    Like, here I sit, broken hearted
    tried to poop, only farted?

    Heck, I can't believe how many public toilets have that in it.

    I personallywent to the toilet in Spain (i've never been to spain) and had a ton of paper (no I didn't...) but, suddenly I realized i had
    ( it comes....)
    El Ton John....
    (let the groaning begin!)

  4. Let's be frank now, this is aimed at the female population. Time spent perusing poetry increases the drip-dry effect, therefor less bogroll needed.

    Love the kangas - who was the daddy? A wild one who went on his way?

  5. I love loo paper! And, because I buy recycled paper made from former magazines, newspapers etc.. then I think it is all right to use lots!

    Instead of getting people to use less, they ought to be focusing on getting people to use the right kind of loo paper - ie. not the fancy quilted type...

  6. If you really really care,to save a Polar bear.

    Use less paper, you do not need an acre!

  7. Or should that be shit House Poetry?

  8. my favorite bathroom ditty:

    Just think of the masses
    that've sat where your assis

  9. And of course the following poem defeats the whole purpose :
    if you sprinkle when you tinkle,
    be a sweetie, wipe the seatie

  10. I thought the Japanese used those fancy high tech toilet/bidets with the robo squirting jets. (I just bought myself one actually, and best thing ever!) What do they need with toilet paper?


  11. Does the Washlet work now that the Japanese economy is bottom up?
