Pierson’s Comfort Group, LLC gets the award for the best slogan in the Porta-Potty business. Click image for detail.

Don’t think me anal but I must continue my porta-potty report from yesterday. This morning the Washington Post is reporting on the details of the massive Inaugural stimulus package on the National Mall (let it be known that this venerable newspaper is just as astute at word play as I am, titling this article “Mall Area Is Flush With Portable Facilities”).

According to the Post, Conrad Harrell, vice president of Chantilly-based Don’s Johns thinks “the total inaugural Toilet Tally could top 7,000. That’s a one-day bathroom capacity of nearly half a million gallons, an epic of septic. ‘There was an event in Germany where they installed 8,000 for a visit by the pope, but there’s never been anything like this in this country,’ said Harrell… ‘We feel like we’re part of history.'” I can’t top that.

But I do have to give the award for the best porta-potty business slogan to one of Harrell’s competitors. Pierson’s Comfort Group states it boldly: “We’re #1 in the #2 business.” I really can’t top that.

    No, I don’t think even the Post could top your astutitude:-)

    Pierson’s slogan is a bit reminiscent of an old SNL sketch – the Tidy Bowl Man. He was in his raincoat, in a boat on water, under an umbrella, saying, “Looking out for #1.”
