Probably Not Quite Ready For the G-8

From an article on "It pays to use a toilet in southern India, as residents are earning close to a dollar a month by using public urinals, a scheme launched by authorities to promote hygiene and research in rural areas."

"Sorry, India, but if you need to bribe people to use toilets, we've gotta say you're just not ready for the big time on the economic world stage. We appreciate your interest, but please call us back when you've got the whole public sanitation thing under control. Also, maybe work on getting rid of the plague. Until then, feel free to join our meetings as an observer."

Best of luck,
The G-8
