Squatter in the Chamber Pot Potty Palace Theater Postal Potty The Chamber Pot Gourdy the Potter Howdy! Hope I didn’t startle ya! Yep, it’s me again – Gourdy – Master Steve’s apprentice. Still sittin’ here… makin’ pots on the pot! Heh, heh… that’s a joke…get it? I heard the neighbor had a bad tire on her train, and the wagon driver had a lame horse! Didya hear somethin’ ’bout some lame ducks in Washington, too? Sounds like an epidemic! Hope it ain’t catchin’! I got a gimpy leg myself. Sure don’t wanta go lame! Well, I better git back ta work here. Jus close the door when ya leave. Yall come back, will ya? Gets kinda lonesome sometimes… your friend, Gordo Santa's North Hole The Social Movement I am a product of the WPA Boomer Generation. I have led a full and fulfilling life, and yet I believe I am just now catching my second wind. During 70 years of existence, I have seen many cutting edge technologies come and pass. In the 40’s it was color TV and Velcro. The 50’s and 60’s were a gas with the birth of Fortran and BASIC. The latest-and-greatest during the 70’s was the word processor and post-it-notes. The 80’s was a good decade; along came DOS, the IBM PC, Mac and Windows. Web TV in the 90’s and in 05, YouTube was born. That brings us to the present age … the Social Movement. Over the years, I have changed very little. Sure, I have been repainted several times, but other that a psychedelic phase in the 60’s I have slways been white and nerdy. Technology has really had very little impact on me – until now. I had fallen into disrepair and was due for a major upgrade. That’s when I jumped on the social movement bandwagon and joined facepot – and believe me, so far it has been a very memorable movement with a few surprises along the way … if you know what I mean. I’m sure I don’t need to explain just how flushed with excitement I was to be able to reconnect with all my WPA buddies, some of whom I hadn’t heard or smelled from in sixty plus years. I have added some new friends this year including Loo With a View and Deere John. Facepot has become such an integral part of my structure, that I’m not sure how I would cope with reality in its absence. When I’m not occupied, I can easily waste my time checking out the news feed to see what kind of crap all my friends are putting up with. Shared YouTube videos are another great way to pass time when you’re looking for a gas. “Charlie bit my finger” and “David after dentist” are definite classics. And then there are the ever annoying Mafia Wars and Farm Town Requests. Why would I want to deal with the constantly dying virtual crops that need harvesting … I can’t even handle all my own crap! This is my first outhouse pageant ever, and I think it will be a very “moving” experience. So do your duty and vote for your favorite outhouse, but before you do, make sure you write on my wall! May the best privy win!
