Magenta Appel-Pye, Mullumbimby

In last week’s Echonetdaily I read the interview with the hilarious Kitty Flanagan. To my mind Australia’s best comedians are female. With such laughable luminaries as Kitty, Mandy Nolan, Hannah Gadsby, and Judith Lucy, I don’t understand why the male comedians get all the TV hosting jobs.

To get to my point, Kitty was quoted as saying she has just published a book on rules, and her most important bathroom rule of all was FPC – Flush, Pause, Check. Leave nothing behind.

It seems Kitty has moved to this Shire and it is important that city people must adjust their way of thinking in regards to water consumption. People who live in the country have a water-wise mantra – ‘if it’s yellow, let it mellow, if it’s brown, flush it down’. Sure it smells a bit, but every time you don’t flush, you save litres of water.

In Mullumbimby we are on Level 4 water restrictions. I hate to think what happens if we get to Level 5. Maybe we won’t be able to flush our toilets at all. Perhaps we will be told to plant lemon trees in the back yard and water them with our piss. Lemons like that sort of thing.
