Yelling, "What the He-- kind of toilet is this?!?" to the bewildered Japanese woman who exits the stall that has a squat toilet.

DEAR Mr. Dog!!!!
Please do not draw the wrong conclewsions from my picture today!! I am just REHEARSING there!!! I am not in the "grasp" of Doo-Doo Man!!!

You're card-playing buddy in Heaven,
PANSI

Doug said...

Thanks, Aral!

Jamie Dawn, I consider that very appropriate.

OK, Pansi. I trust you and have faith in your goodness and continence. Doo-doo and I are more like business associates.

Okay, I can't resist. Totally not meant as a shameless plug, rather in keeping within the context of innapropriateness, toilets, and squatting, you must see Strider's recent post.

Doug said...

I agree with Sar. Ironically appropriate.

Tom & Icy said...

Those awkward moments so hard to explain appear as inappropriateness

Doug said...

Tom & Icy, I'm familiar with the type.

GABRIEL C. ZOLMAN said...

Inapropriateness, n. A condition of unsavory behavior, as guaged by those who themselves savor only behavior.

That one's a bit obtuse, I guess.
Oh well. It's still early for me.

True inappropriateness is voting for someone to be President of the United States, who you would not trust to balance your checking account, or to teach your first grader to read English.

Alice: In Wonderland or Not said...

Then we are truly inappropriate as a nation aren't we.

“2005 Update: Truth within reach of your enemy, beauty in the grasp of your friend or justice in the hands of your neighbor”……..trust within hundred miles of your government.

Doug said...

Gabriel, give it another shot. You're pretty close.

Tan Lucy, throw in trust with your sister and we'll be electing Brits.

Alice, nice touch.

Boy, you people are cynical.

This is totally out-of-line, and unsuitable! It's just impropietitous.

(sorry I totally misunderstood your house comment; I didn't see the previous comment on dddragon's site, and then literally misread you!)

actonbell said...

um, that improprietous? Don't drink-and-type!

Sar said...

Lucy - we should rename you "Lucy For Prez". How's your calendar looking for 2008?

Doug said...

Actonbell, have I become the villain in a Bronte novel?

Sar, I'll vote Pez/Stiletto '08.

Inappropriateness:

That state of undress for which you punish your daughter, but compliment your wife.

Doug said...

Good one, a4g and welcome if you're new.

Lauren said...

or...

Calling a pizza place to ask them where to get a vibrator.

Doug said...

Lauren, I think I'd have to agree. Welcome.
