In Louisiana ‘drop bombs in bathroom’ means poop

TMZ reports a New Orleans man was arrested at a Willie’s Chicken Shack after allegedly claiming he was going to “blow the bathroom up.”

Problem is … the guy claims he was talking about butt bombs — not actual explosives.

The man in the mug shot is 30-year-old Arthur Posey — who hit up the Canal Street restaurant at night on Nov. 13. 

Employees told police Posey made a violent threat against the place — allegedly saying, “Y’all about to close right now because I’m going to get a bomb and blow this place up.”

When cops tracked down Posey, he claimed it was a giant misunderstanding — explaining he told staffers he was going to “blow the bathroom up” … meaning, he was gonna poop his brains out. 

Cops didn’t buy what Posey was selling and arrested him. He’s now facing 2 counts of communicating false information of planned arson.

He’s due back in court later this month — where he’ll try to convince a judge the allegations are just a bunch of crap.

OVERLOOKING LIGHTING

Interior designer Tali Roth said there is nothing worse than a poorly lit bathroom.

‘People often forget that they need multiple light sources and end up with a single dull sconce—which basically ensures you’ll leave the house with scary clown makeup. Try to incorporate both decorative and task lighting,’ she said.

Davies-Gaetano agreed with her as she said the importance of lighting is often overlooked when people are designing their bathroom.

She explained that it’s important that a bathroom has a good source of natural light as well as lighting that is strategically placed both overhead and surrounding the vanity light.

For those bathrooms that have bad lighting she suggested people add a table or floor lamp.

Dear Family, You Need To Get Your Act Together In The Bathroom

brazzo/Getty

I walked into the bathroom the other day, not because I had to go, but because there appeared to be white slime dripping down the window, and it startled me away from my vacuuming.

As I got closer, I noticed the slime was actually toothpaste. And that toothpaste was sprayed all over the bathroom — on the mirror, the window, the windowsill, the toilet.

How the hell did toothpaste end up on the toilet? Was someone multitasking? Forget it. I don’t even want to know what happens behind these doors when I’m not looking.

I turned to grab some toilet paper to wipe up the mess until my kids got home from school and I could tell them to do a proper scrubbing. But because I already knew there was toothpaste making its way down the window, there was no way I was going to be able to function properly for the rest of the day.

But guess what? The only toilet paper in sight was a dinky little square someone left draped over a bald toilet paper roll, probably because it’s too much work to get a fresh roll and change it.

I walked out of there, refusing to get the toilet paper out to clean up the toothpaste spit because then that’s one less thing they would have to do.

When they got home I was full of piss and vinegar, partly because of their laziness and also because there was actual piss on the toilet seat and pooled on the edge on the toilet and god knows where else.

My daughter’s razor was sitting on the bottom of the tub caked with hair, and who knows how long those stiff towels have been laying on the floor.

I’ve tried to explain in the nicest way possible (read: only moderate swearing involved) that the bathroom is a place we go to wash our hands, take a shower, moisturize, and really, to get clean. And as they could see, their sorry-ass excuse pit of a bathroom wasn’t fit to get anything clean.

“How can you feel good about going in there to shower or wash your face or even take a dump? How can you relax in that hell hole?”

Their blank stares told me they literally didn’t understand the question, and I was wasting my breath. My oldest walked in, looked around and said, “Mom, it’s not that bad. Did you have a bad day?”

“Yes, I had a bad day because I had to look at this disgusting-ness and I can’t fathom why any of you think this is acceptable!”

From the empty bottle of conditioner rolling around on the floor of the tub, to the fingernail clippings hanging out on the windowsill, to the soap scum mixed with toothpaste that had crusted over the faucet and drain, I needed a wash down after just looking in there.

I don’t expect the bathroom to sparkle. I realize skid marks are going to happen and every once in a while we may forget to pick up our towel. But the fuckery that was blossoming in the bathroom that day needed to be fixed.

And so I made my three kiddos get down and dirty. There was grout-scrubbing and shower curtain-washing and Q-tips were used to get into hard to reach places.

There is zero excuse to have a bathroom that looks like it housed ten drunk college students for a month.

Adults of the world feel the need to bash our head against the toothpaste stained mirror every time we have to explain to our kids that things like changing the toilet paper roll when it’s out, or why throwing away the clump of hair will actually make life more pleasant but apparently, it’s part of the job.

My family needs a huge lesson on pulling it together in the bathroom. And lord help me, if I find that much pee on the bathroom floor again, I’m going to make them do their business outside for a month. At least that way they won’t have to exert themselves to change the damn toilet paper roll.

However, to avoid that mess I’ve compiled a list for my family so we are really fucking clear.

Bathroom Rules:

1. If anything comes out of, or off of, your body (this includes but is not limited to pee, poo, vomit, snot, spit, fingernails, hair, boogers, and toothpaste), it’s your responsibility to clean it up. All the way.

2. Empty bottles and containers do not get dropped on the floor or put on the windowsill, they get put in that round thing next to the toilet commonly known as a trash can.

3. When said trash can is full, empty it. Don’t sprinkle more trash around it.

4. Do the person using the toilet after you a solid, and change the roll if needed. Keep in mind we all need more than just one square to get the job done.

5. Towels and bathmats get hung up on designated hooks. Think about it: do you really want to rub something that’s been collecting floor-dirt on your naked body?

6. If you simply can’t keep this straight and maintain a semi-clean bathroom, I simply can’t give you the WiFi password

Bellingham teacher charged with recording student in bathroom

BELLINGHAM, Mass. (WPRI/AP) — A Bellingham middle School Teacher is accused of secretly taking photos of a young boy in a bathroom.

Scott McDonald, 38, was arraigned in court Monday on two felony charges for possessing illicit images of a minor.

Mcdonald was placed on paid administrative leave on Nov. 9 after a student reported his suspicions to the school.

Police said a 14-year-old boy told a school resource officer earlier this month that when McDonald told him he could use the faculty bathroom, the boy found a box with a hole and a cellphone recording inside.

Bellingham Superintendent of Schools Peter Marano said McDonald was immediately removed from the classroom once the allegations were made.

“As an educator and a parent I am absolutely appalled anytime a teacher violates the awesome trust and responsibility given to teachers by the parents of the children placed in our care on a daily basis,”  Marano said in a statement. “We will not tolerate any behavior by any member of the staff or faculty of our school district that violates that trust.”

McDonald was released following his arraignment on the condition he wears a gps monitor bracelet. He is also not allowed contact with anyone younger than 18 years old or have access to devices with a camera or internet.

Men spend seven hours a year in the bathroom

Researchers polled 1,000 men and found that men spend many hours in the bathroom on their phones, avoiding children and their partners, and trying not to be disturbed.

We all need a bit of time to ourselves, to switch off completely, and what better place to do so than in a bathroom where you know no one will open the door to disturb you.

Martin Bester admits he enjoys going to the bathroom but does not spend more time in the bathroom than is necessary.

Women agree and admit they also spend all those hours in the bathroom hiding from the family for some peace and quiet.

Here’s How To Clean Your Bathroom Without Toxins

  • When you’re switching over to natural and nontoxic home-cleaning products, the bedroom and living areas feel like pretty approachable places to start. The kitchen? Sure. The bathroom on the other hand? That’s one place where it can feel like more heavy-duty products are necessary just to get the job done.

    Melissa Maker, the green-cleaning expert behind the book Clean My Space: The Secret to Cleaning Better, Faster, and Loving Your Home Every Day and cleaning company Clean My Space, is here to prove otherwise. Here, she shares the green cleaning supplies and routines that will make your bathroom shine.

  • How to clean your bathroom floor.

  • Bathroom floors are basically magnets for hair and grime, which makes them prime territory for a good vacuuming. “Hair goes everywhere, and if you don’t catch it immediately, it can just go somewhere else,” she says. But if your bathroom is too small for a clunky vacuum, she recommends what’s known as the Cinderella technique:

    Get down on hands and knees and use a somewhat damp (if you don’t know what that feels like, imagine what it feels like when you sneeze into your hand) microfiber cloth to wipe down one end of the floor to the other, moving down ever so slightly until you get to the end. “Hands and knees is great because it allows you to visually see where the hair is,” she says. From there, take a new microfiber cloth (she recommends these because their thin fibers make them super effective at catching dirt), and wipe down the floors one more time using a simple water and white vinegar spray.

  • How to get rid of grime in the corners of your tub or shower.

  • No need to reach for bleach here! Instead, Maker recommends reaching for a greener cleaner or using a mixture of equal parts baking soda, dish soap (any kind will do), and 10 to 20 drops of your favorite essential oil if you want a smell-good element. “This is a super-, super-effective cleaner,” she raves. “Make a paste and apply it to the surface of your tub. Let it sit for five minutes or so, then take a clean sponge and scrub the area over. By the time the five minutes are up, the soap scum has no chance. Everything comes out nice and clean.”

    If you’re dealing with more stubborn mold or mildew buildup that still won’t go away, she points to Concrobium as a safer alternative to most heavy-duty cleaners. It’s made without bleach, ammonia, or VOCs.

    To keep buildup from happening in the first place, you can wipe down your tub or shower after every use and then quickly spritz a mixture of 2 cups of vinegar and 20 drops of tea tree essential oil for “a little bit of extra insurance,” says Maker.
