Commercial Break: A wee addition to your usual shower routine

Here’s a personal question for you? When you’re in the shower, and you feel the urge to, ahem, ‘do the wee wees,’ do you (a) climb out and make your way over to the toilet before unburdening yourself of your bladiatorial cargo? Or (b), turn to face the plughole, take a step back, put your hands behind your head (after all, you can’t really miss) and take a long, thundering piss into your bath/shower cubicle?

It’s (b) isn’t it? Isn’t it? If it is or it isn’t, a major new ad campaign is piddling all over Brazilian TV screens at the moment, urging citizens to take advantage of the running water in the shower and by adding some more of their own making.

Apparently, one flush per day per household equates to 4,380 litres (1,157 gallons) of water per year. Enough, or so we’ve estimated, to save the lives of seven penguins a decade. Sweet.

So what are you waiting for. Go and slurp a couple of litres of water, then when you feel the need to do a wizz-wazz, hop into the shower and spill your yellow belly-juice there instead. But for God’s sake, don’t get carried away and do number twos as well as number ones – you’ll need a broom handle or the thick end of a snooker cue to mash it down the plug hole afterwards.

    I prefer, C) Aim for the toilet, whilst standing in the shower.

    Why bother to turn to face the plug hole? It's all going to get washed down there in the end.

    Surely you could just use your hand(s)/finger(s) to mash the poop down the plughole (your in the shower anyway so you can clean your hand(s)/finger(s) straight away after). What the hell have you got the thick end of a snooker que in your bathroom for anyway?

    I concur
