I'm more interested, Dave, in what led you to THAT news bit.

I know Dave's on the road, so he probably missed the item I sent in about this yesterday, which was much better. See:

New play being staged in toilet

A Brazilian theatre company has opened its new production - in a public toilet.

The Evangelical for the Laymen is being staged at a public toilet under the Cha Bridge in Sao Paulo.

In the play, which mixes biblical and ordinary characters, Jesus is divided into three characters: a social worker, a policeman and an ordinary citizen.

Evil Reboucas, director of the Artehumus Theatre Company, told Folha de Sao Paulo: "We chose the toilet to work as a metaphor for a society that pushes all its renegades to a sewage deposit."

How can you top a guy named Evil Reboucas? You can't.

Must not be a very popular production the venue seems kinda small. The set, however, couldn't have been too difficult to decorate. Wonder where the public is using the toilet now that the toilet is onstage?

It sounds sort of like the production of Godspell I had to do when I was in college. The only difference was that the toilet would have been used in a more metaphorical sense than in this production.

what a crappy idea.
play in a tiolet?
i can do that at home.

p.s. my house is flooding AGAIN.

Three Christs? Does the fat one ballance the two skinny ones?

Oh pleeeeeese. a new art form. a truly stupid idea. someone should flush it.

How do you spell poo?

obviously they have staged this play in the toilet so that the audience will know what to expect. The show will be crap.

Alpha-poo, nice find MKJ. This actually might be a more effective thing to use over trashcans in the park to encourge folks to pick up after their dogs. They could just have POO spelled out with an arrow pointing to the receptacle. It couldn't be any less helpfull then the current dog with baggy signs they-re using now.

Actually, Peri, if you read the seller's feedback, a large number of idio, er, buyers have purchased this, er, stuff.

I must admit to LOL (laughing out loud) when I clicked MKJ's link and saw the product. I have two large dogs. My thought was, wouldn't it be funny if I purchased the letters of one of my dog's name? I would place them on the floor one day. Then, my honey would find them. Can you imagine the high hilarity?

"Damn, Trystan! Call the Herald! Flash just s@#t his name on the floor!"


Also, as I have previously stated, Mahatma my man, you spend WAAAAYYY too much time on eBay. (Yes, I AM a little jealous.)

Man: You sit here, dear.

Wife: All right.

Man: Morning!

Waitress: Morning!

Man: Well, what've you got?

Waitress: Well, there's egg and bacon; egg sausage and bacon; egg and spam; egg bacon and spam; egg bacon sausage and spam; spam bacon sausage and spam; spam egg spam spam bacon and spam; spam sausage spam spam bacon spam tomato and spam;

Vikings: Spam spam spam spam...

Waitress: ...spam spam spam egg and spam; spam spam spam spam spam spam baked beans spam spam spam...

Vikings: Spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam!

Waitress: ...or Lobster Thermidor a Crevette with a mornay sauce served in a Provencale manner with shallots and aubergines garnished with truffle pate, brandy and with a fried egg on top and spam.

Wife: Have you got anything without spam?

Waitress: Well, there's spam egg sausage and spam, that's not got much spam in it.

Wife: I don't want ANY spam!

Man: Why can't she have egg bacon spam and sausage?

Wife: THAT'S got spam in it!

Man: Hasn't got as much spam in it as spam egg sausage and spam, has it?

Vikings: Spam spam spam spam... (Crescendo through next few lines...)

Wife: Could you do the egg bacon spam and sausage without the spam then?

Waitress: Urgghh!

Wife: What do you mean 'Urgghh'? I don't like spam!

Vikings: Lovely spam! Wonderful spam!

Waitress: Shut up!

Vikings: Lovely spam! Wonderful spam!

Waitress: Shut up! (Vikings stop) Bloody
Vikings! You can't have egg bacon spam and sausage without the spam.

Wife: I don't like spam!

Man: Sshh, dear, don't cause a fuss. I'll have your spam. I love it. I'm having spam spam spam spam spam spam spam beaked beans spam spam spam and spam!

Vikings: Spam spam spam spam. Lovely spam! Wonderful spam!

Waitress: Shut up!! Baked beans are off.

Man: Well could I have her spam instead of the baked beans then?

Waitress: You mean spam spam spam spam spam spam... (but it is too late and the Vikings drown her words)

Vikings: (Singing elaborately...) Spam spam spam spam. Lovely spam! Wonderful spam! Spam spa-a-a-a-a-am spam spa-a-a-a-a-am spam. Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Spam spam spam spam!

Chaz, Spamalot is opening in New York March 10th 2005.

I have a lump on my neck. It's been there for years. I call it Doris.

i am very sad that i ive lived with my mom for 40 years.

A play in a toilet? Sounds like a venue for a road company of "Urinetown." (Which was GREAT, by the way.)

Alpha-sh*ts! (as opposed to Alpha-bits cereal)

No word on whether the toilet will be filled prior to the play?

The guy's actual name is "Evil." You just can't beat that.

I think that this production will probably stall pretty soon.
