Anticipated Toilet Shortage Clogs Up Music FestivalBy
It may surprise you to know that the Professor is a big music fan and a regular concert-goer. So the recent news that the famed Glastonbury Festival (held every year in the English countryside) will be taking a year off in 2012 – due to an anticipated toilet shortage, of all things – was saddening to read.
The shortage is being caused by the 2012 Olympics being held in London, as it is expected that most of the portapotties in England will be needed there, with the rental price skyrocketing for the remaining available loos. The Professor must acknowledge that the Olympics is a entirely worthwhile event and an exciting event for Londoners, but still, the idea of missing out on that annual fix of great indie rock and funk performers is quite depressing. In the meantime, the Professor will be flipping through the rolodex of toilet suppliers that is always kept close at hand to see if the UK might have its Olympics and music festival, too.
