an amusing look at a certain bodily function and the social euphemisms/strictures surrounding it; "We all find it highly necessary, several times a day, to wash our hands. Why in the name of common sense and honesty should we think it necessary to refer to this simple natural act as 'seeing a man about a dog,' 'watering the stock,' 'sharpening the skates,' or as the French so subtly put it, 'changer le poisson d'eau.'?"; illustrated orange cloth, 37 pgs., illustrated; gentle crinkle to top right corner of front free end paper; lightly edgeworn dj w/mild chipping to corners/spine ends, slightly sunned spine, small soil mark to spine; a nice copy;
