World Toilet Day – Health and Sanitation Also Means Thanking a Plumber


It’s World Toilet Day.  A perfect day to hug your plumber.

The premise of World Toilet Day is to remind us all of the serious sanitation problems facing much of the world.  Problems that affluent countries rarely think about.  Until you study World History and learn about the Plague for the first time.

The first rate sanitary systems we enjoy in North America are indeed due to our advanced product technology, but also to the plumbers who protect the health of our nation every day.

So in honor of World Toilet Day,  the Professor urges you to do three things:

1. Make a donation to your favorite clean water charity.

2. Go ahead and do the Big Squat.

3. Hug your plumber. And tell him or her “thanks.”
