Family Practice - Lid Up 2

To fully appreciate this post you should read the previous submission. Regarding that post, I must say that I was surprised at the number of comments that the subject of toilet lid placement generated. It is apparently a heart felt (or posterior felt) issue in a large number of households.

I do wish to emphasis that my suggested toilet lid campaign is directed towards PUBLIC unisex facilities and not the common household variety. I have long been well trained on lid placement in my house full of women.

Of the response that I got I think that the most practical one came from Valarie who wrote that "maybe the male that was leaving the unisex bathroom with the toilet seat down was doing something in there that he needed the seat down for!?! :)" My response to her was that I try not to think about such things - thoughts like that tend to break my concentration, and heaven knows you need to keep your concentration while using those kind of facilities.

Anyway, this is another sample from my failed attempt at comic strip syndication which talks about the controversial issue of... lid up, or lid down?

Another classic. Too funny!

I also enjoyed Valarie's comment and your response!

Awesome blog. I can't believe you did that pic of Dawn and family. It looks amazing. Thanks for visiting my blog. It's not always that bad I swear.

Hmmm - I'm wanting to change that punchline....

"Ain't me - I wouldn't be caught dead in there."

No, not quite right. Although you realize that the fish needs to be male, don't you? (I'm an editor at heart.) Make him say,

"Ain't me - I'm still not over what happened to my dead wife."

Or, better yet,

"Well, I don't go near the danged thing - not after what happened to my dead wife..."

Or,

"Who, me? Over my dead body..."

I like that last one! It's got the right timing. Can you tell I'm a devotee of the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest? What kills me is that I didn't get my caption in on time for the one they are voting on this week, and all 3 options are awful! Mine would have been, "Well, as your presidential candidate, I feel that those town hall meetings just aren't intimate enough..." Or something like that - I didn't have time to tweak it.

I love your work! When I saw the piece of Dawn(mother to a six-pack) I thought it was fantastic! What are you prices like? Your art would for sure make great gifts! Misty

Just read both of your last two posts - I vote for lid down regardless of where you are.

then again, I prefer a trained guy to a clueless guy.... My last boyfriend was trained. My brother is clueless, and I'm convinced this is one reason he's still single

Sorry, lid down still holds water in my book.
