Need a sponge bath?

Hang on -- the latest Portland hobo bathroom is almost ready to open:

Just in time for Christmas. And in between the Pearly totem poles! It doesn't get any better than that.

Will they have an official Tissue Tearing Ceremony?

Sorry, Beau Breedlove wasn't available.

I can't wait.

Try to hold in your excitement.

Isn't this just an extension of the city hall bathrooms? Sort of a youth outreach?

Hay Jack I think you hit on where Sam has been disappearing to when he goes missing.

Yes, "youth out-reach", right next to the kiddie wading pool, and the Pearl Poodle Potty grass that is called a "park". I wouldn't let any child near the place. I am not sure I want to potty my dog there either, given the obvious levels of animal waste that are visible most of the time.

And Multnomah County will set up a needle exchange in a tent next door.

Wow, Jack. I never thought I'd see you marching in lockstep with a bunch of Pearl condo-owners who don't want parents to have a place to change diapers at the most popular kiddie park in town.

A small community center with an attendant that included bus-station-type lockers, and a place to change baby diapers and get kids in and out of wet clothes might make more sense. I can't see any self-respecting Pearl nanny or parent changing a nappy in the new PearlyPot(tm).

The city goes on and on about why the loos are superior (possible dirty deeds in the traditional downtown and park bathrooms and potential vandalism to unattended potties) but in the past when there were minimum wage lavatory attendants, that didn't happen. Someone got a job (probably safer than being mentored by certain city figures) and the public enjoyed the prospect of a clean and safe restroom.

I hope when the pee on the floor and vomit in the urinals they feel good that it is a nice clean place and not a dump like the rest of the public restrooms in Portland.

I feel like bustin' loos.

Skip, skip, skip to my Lou,
Skip, skip, skip to my Lou,
Skip, skip, skip to my Lou,
Skip to my Lou, my darlin'.
