Are you ready for Toilet Tuesdays?

Today is a very exciting day! You want to know why? Because from today, Toilet Twinning is bringing back toilet humour in a big way.

A toilet humour renaissance, if you will.

The best part is, we are going to be awarding prizes to anyone that tells us the best toilet joke, funniest toilet related story, video, or even just photos of your loo! Yes, even your toilet can be judged, a bit like ‘Bog-Idol’.

The contestants line up for the auditions in Manchester,
hoping to impress Simon Bowel.

We will be running this competition for the next two weeks in the run up to World Toilet Day on Friday 19th November. We want to celebrate the toilet and raise awareness of how 1 in 3 people across the world don’t have somewhere safe to go to the toilet.

Submit your joke, story or photo to us on Tuesday 9th, Tuesday 16th and finally World Toilet Day on the 19th.

Each week the prize (a £25 iTunes voucher) for the best photo, joke or funny story will be awarded to one entrant.

  1. Why is pea soup more special than mashed potatoes?

    Because anyone can mash potatoes.


  2. Support bacteria - they're the only culture some people have.


  3. Every recess the school girls would go into the restrooms, put on lipstick, and kiss the mirrors. Finally a teacher took the girls into the restrooms to show them how much work it is for the janitor to clean it. The janitor then dipped his mop into the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it. Problem Solved!! No more kissing the mirrors.


  4. The world’s oldest joke has been recorded by researchers to be toilet humour about flatulence. It is recorded in tablets dating back to 1900 BC and is an ancient Sumerian proverb:

    'Something which has never occurred since time immemorial; a young woman did not fart in her husband’s lap.'


  5. An old couple is on a walk, when a pigeon flies over & deposits a present on the woman's head.

    "Eugh!" says the woman. "Quick! Get some toilet paper."

    "What for? He must be half a mile away by now."
