True Blue Loo

Bags of Family FunBags of Family Fun by Steve Rhode (cc by-nc-nd)

When I was a kid my Gran still had an outdoors loo. It was made of corrugated iron and next to the coal bunker, and when you were using it her - ancient, terrifying, inscrutable - neighbour Mrs Northsworthy would occasionally come out and bang a steel pan on the side. We never worked out whether she strongly objected to the very concept of bodily functions, or just liked to sow terror for its own sake. sobarel

Do you want to read Mefites' terrific tales of terrifying toilets? Of course you do.
