And the rest(room) is history...

ok, this one is below the belt; literally. We all know that some of the greatest ideas have originated from the errr..you know...the loo. So what is it that this place has? Apart from the fact that this is the only place where you are completely yourself, alone with your thoughts. Your fortress of solitude (if only in thought). And if you keep aside the other 'not-so-mentionable' characteristics of a place like this, the rest-room is actually a great case for study, (pun unintended). There've been many anecdotes written and spoken about this room. The walls of public loos are virtually history books (ok, other books too;geography, biology, language...etc.). And for us of the male species, though it's not so much a private affair, the rest-room has also doubled as a 'conference' room, a conspiracy lobby, and many more. It's really funny when we all congregate in the company rest-room, from the trainee to the MD. It kind of levels us. Standing there in deep thought, looking up, looking down (The really tall guys face many embarrassing moments...so do the really short ones), looking here and there, whistling, talking on the cell, murmuring...

And here's a loo joke that has not spared even the big B himself, you might've heard it:

Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan are waiting for their flight when the former excuses himself and heads to the restroom. A few minutes later, he returns, drenched and smelling like a restroom himself. An aghast and disgusted Jaya asks him, "What happened?!!!" And the sheepish Mr. B says, "Arre everything was ok until the moment I stepped in. Then, one guy spotted me and shouted 'Amitabh Bachchan aaya, Amitabh Bachchan aaya'! And they all turned."

Err...excuse me now...
