Sorry pal, the bathroom’s busy today!

bathroom bodybuilding 490

Oh Lord, now I’ve REALLY done it!

PERU/I had to go and have three cups of coffee this morning at a place where the only men’s room is the site of the Bathroom Bodybuilding Competition, popularly known as “Pottybuilding.”

Pottybuilding! Of all the stupid sports!

And it sure doesn’t help that I took a harsh laxative last night before going to bed.

My stomach is gurgling. How much longer are these apes gonna show off their muscles in a public toilet?

Jeez! Gotta take my mind off of it. Maybe have one of these big prune Danishes…

I say after that harsh laxative, go on in, get your pants on the ground, and let it loose. Musclehead here will run like the wind, he will really be moving, he will go!

What I have to say about this wouldn’t get printed anyway…um…the second picture looks slightly pornographic thanks to the plumbing fixture in the background….

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive

He’s not a turn on, Shra? Well, pop my balloon! I guess I won’t send in pics of me posing in my little red shorts! :(

“Fake and bake”! ~snicker~

Bob, why did you just refer to him as “competitor”? That’s the locally famous Loo Ferrigno!

Shra, just because I am a terrible tease (I’m told), I think I’ll pose in my little black shorts with matching black … shoes.

~giggle~

I have the same hairline …

Are you talking about your bikini wax, Cam?

Posted by T54 | Report as abusive

E, Dr. Doll, good one!! *chuckle* *chuckle*

As to the Dr.’s pics, I am sorry to say Shra will probably be more interested in the black shoes than the rest. Nice try, though!

Come now M… if the fundament is cute enough, I could be interested in that as well… :P

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

As an American, I hold near and dear the “fundamental rights” guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. And one of those has to be the pursuit of a cute fundament!

Should I tease by telling what kind of shoes I wear? My show size? I don’t know. I’m kinda shy that way.

Oh, what the heck: I’m a 43-33-44.

That’s 43 inch chest and shoulders, 33 inch waist, and 44 regular shoe size (Size 11 in American measure).

Gosh, now I feel dirty!

Posted by DoctorDoll | Report as abusive

Oooooo… Big feet… you know what that means, dont you, Dr…
gosh, this blog is making me cheap… :)

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

Big appendages run in the family. ;)

Shra, buy me a drink and I might talk about what brand name of shoes I wear, let you watch me unlace my shoes, or ????!

Posted by DoctorDoll | Report as abusive

Oh no. It looks like I left home this morning without putting on any socks!

Posted by DoctorDoll | Report as abusive

It would have been me.. had I not taken the route to pizza hut :S

Posted by fwd079 | Report as abusive

Dr! You are a cracker… in a good way of course…
Unca, those woollen things Grandmas knit and give as stocking fillers on Xmas… there are also some non woollen ones..

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

Dr. and Shra, could you kindly leave the kinkiness out of this blog? I mean, this is a family oriented blog!! I am blushed all over!

Tim, I’m with you, man. Whoever said socks? What the blazes are those appendages for?

Posted by justM | Report as abusive

This???? A family oriented blog???? Since when, eh????

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

Sure, in the same way Hooters is a family oriented restaurant.

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive

Yeah yeah yeah….

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

M, you’re blushed all over? ALL over? You realize the implications of that statement, don’t you? Your blushing includes your … feet.

Posted by DoctorDoll | Report as abusive

Doctor has a foot fetish… ;)

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

Doc., fortunately my feet blush and so they warm up in this bloody cold we are going through.

And I do blush ALL over, which keeps my fundament and all appendages warm as well. I guess you’d call it adaptation to the environment?

Posted by justM | Report as abusive

Okay, I take the hint. Enough about feet. Let’s move to a new appendage. Shall we start with gloves?

Posted by DoctorDoll | Report as abusive

fuzzy with all the heavy words…. (cant-focus-eyes)

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

You’re wearing a condom to keep warm, Unca? Is it the insulated kind? I’ve heard about those in Alaska. Or is it electrically heated?

Posted by DoctorDoll | Report as abusive

That sounds pretty inefficient, Unca. You should try the new [brand name deeleted]. It’s cost-effectiveness and energy savings keep you thrifty in office buildings, schools, hospitals, and hotels in six different climate zones. You can see rapid payback in 1-2 years in many cases and high energy savings of up to 39% and $25 million over 30 years.

You should see a dealer. I had a brochure here, but I think my son’s friends ran off with it. The dealer can retrofit, if need be.

Am I really reading this…. this is just…. so wrong… on sooooo many levels… that I cant even begin to count….
