Potty-Mouthed Toilet Humor.....For Real!! (something for everyone)

Back in the 1970s, I lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico. That is a wonderful, international town. Of course, it has changed a great deal since I lived there. Towards the end of my stay there, I met a young lass from England. I have to tell you, she was absolutely delightful. I really got a kick out of her accent. One morning, not long after we had met, she went to use my bathroom and my shower. She stuck her towel-wrapped head into the hallway and asked," Do you have any Lou Rawls?" I have always had an extensive music collection, so I told her that I did and put on an album by the man that many called "The Genius."(please click) I don't remember which one I played for her, but soon my little adobe house was full of the sounds of this wonderful and soulful crooner.

"No Michael" she exclaimed," I asked for some Lou Rawls! I'm serious!" I didn't know what to do, so I put on this next one. I mean, what could be better than Lou Rawls and Sam Cooke? Please enjoy and I will finish the story.......


She got a little peeved with me and I had no idea that the problem was our interpretation of the English language. She spoke the Queen's English and I spoke a combination of  Texican and Spanglish. What she really wanted is this..LOO ROLLS. (please click to see what the heck I am talking about.)

I have laughed at that story many times and still do until this very day.

30 English Accents

The weather is starting to clear up here in West Texas. We had a couple days of dreaded snow, but the weather girl said we would get into the 40's today. I am going to have to go to town to post this. I will try to find some ISP today. 

I hope you enjoyed my post today. Here are a couple more for those of you who can't get enough toilet humor.........

The Texas Troubadour!! 

That's about it for today. I hope you got a chuckle out of this!!

  1. Michael, I needed something to dispel this low flying anxiety I was experiencing this morning, and here you are with a great chuckle that did just that. I spent a couple of weeks down in Port Isabel exactly two years ago while attempting to do something similar (dispel anxiety), and every day I drove the Queen Isabella Bridge to South Padre with Lou Rawls and "You'll Never Find.." It was a great way to lift my mood and get on with the day. Thanks for the reminder and the laughs.

  2. T~This is an absolutely true story. Why don't you get out of there and come on back to Texas? BTW, I haven't read anything new from you and was sure wondering.

  3. Well it all worked out OK. Or as she might have said. "Bob's Your Uncle" :-)

    Glad you checked in BTW.

  4. Thanks Ben~It sure did get cold up here. Thanks for the visit!

  5. Ha! Too funny! I'm going to use Lou Rawls in the bathroom forever more!

  6. I was hesitant to read it because of the title but it was a great story and funny too!

  7. What a Charmin' post. I remember Mr. Whipple! So I hope you didn't make your friend wait too long before you figured out what she really wanted. Great story.

  8. Yea, that was funny. I really have trouble with accents. My brain isn't too sharp when it comes to understanding people with an accent different than mine. Maybe I ought to talk to more people, right?

  9. Very funny post, Michael. Now regarding your most recent comment on my blog... since I can't e-mail this to you... "Don't worry, Michael, Oregon Ducks are darn hard to catch."

  10. So very true, it's a common phrase at home in the UK. When we're on holiday in the USA I sometimes forget and ask for directions to the 'loo' cue blank looks and me hastily correcting myself :)

  11. No that's the Michael I remember from about 6 months ago. That was too funny. LOL

  12. >bow< Thank you all so very much. I got new internet today. What a difference it has made. Do you hate it when you stuff won't work? I know I do.
