Lack of Facilities

While most celebrated the New Year, some were saddened by the sudden loss of portable facilities in Texas:

Officials are investigating whether fireworks are behind a blaze that destroyed about 350 portable toilets outside San Antonio.
 
Bexar County spokeswoman Monica Ramos said the blaze started about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday at United Site Services, east of the city center.
 
Ramos said the cause of the fire is unknown and that it is still under investigation.
 
Other officials, however, say fireworks may have started a grass fire that eventually spread to the business, reaching the portable toilets...
I see a couple of bright sides to this story.

Local comedians will be able to use their best toilet humor for a week or two.

And, manufacturers will be busy replacing some of those toilets with a high demand model like this:



Management Perk: Always on the Top (All Others Use the Bottom)

Although, this one is less portable.

Enjoy your weekend.

What a sad loss! Fire just doesn't consider anything sacred, does it?

And while i've heard of two-seaters, that picture just defies words.

I'm most struck by the fact that your first post of the year is about outhouses.

You have your own brand of humor Slam, with that remark about comedians making use of "toilet humor."
