Each issue in Thoughts For The Soul we explore the more serious side of the
Universe. We discuss, question and ponder a particular facet of life, and
then present our Thought For The Soul - a quote we feel encapsulates what
we have talked of.
This issue we examine the subject of toilets (or bogs as they are sometimes
referred to this side of the pond) and in particular the question of how
clean a toilet should be. This question often splits the genders, with women
being amongst the vocal attackers of what we chaps might term a "working
toilet." (Although they tend to use phrases like "health hazard").
I (the editor) have to declare an interest here. I have a "toilet that works
for a living". A friend (a male ex-student) once stated that in his many
years in student hovels he had seen some terrible toilets but that mine was
the worst hešd ever seen.
But perhaps the best line was from one of the creative team of this very
magazine (Bog Boy). He returned, somewhat shaken, from his first encounter
with this horror and delivered an immortal line that we thought deserved to
be this issuešs Soul Thought.
