Happy Toilet Reading! Toilets are beautiful places and a frequent stop on our daily rambles. It can get quite eventful in there and, at times, a bit boring, hence the disorderly collection of magazines you’ve got stashed in the corner. But if you ever feel like diversifying your reading, make a blogstop here from time to time. I have loads of suggestions. My first pick from the toilet archive are clips from A Book of Nonsense by 19th century British artist, illustrator, poet, and author, Edward Lear. Don’t worry. You won’t laugh too hard. Lear’s witty bits of nonsense simply puts you in a nice, mellow mood. Are you in the toilet right now? Scroll down my friends and start reading. 

There was an Old Man on some rocks,
Who shut his wife up in a box;
When she said, ‘Let me out!’
He exclaimed, ‘Without doubt,
You will pass all your life in that box.’

There was an Old Man in a tree,
Who was horribly bored by a Bee;
When they said, ‘Does it buzz?’
He replied, ‘Yes, it does!’
‘It’s a regular brute of a Bee!’

There was a Young Lady of Ryde,
Whose shoe-strings were seldom untied.
She purchased some clogs,
And some small spotted dogs,
And frequently walked about Ryde.

There was an Old Man of Peru,
Who watched his wife making a stew;
But once by mistake,
In a stove she did bake,
That unfortunate Man of Peru.

There was an Old Man of Vesuvius,
Who studied the works of Vitruvius;
When the flames burnt his book,
To drinking he took,
That morbid Old Man of Vesuvius.
