We return to the lavatorial business of the USA.
First, there was Pennsylvania's Mary Bach and her glorious $100 legal victory after being unlawfully charged 28 cents of tax on a couple of packs of loo roll.
And now there's Robert Morris.
The new mayor of Eunice, Louisiana, is calling for a cut to the town's longstanding 'toilet tax' - a $10-per-khazi charge levied on households by his predecessor, Curtis Joubert.
The fee, which brings in $350,000 (£178,000) a year, is meant to pay for improvements to the local sewer system.
But Mr Morris believes that the 60-year-old pipes are beyond reliable repair, and so he plans to halve the tax.
He's confident that this move will have no adverse effect on the area.
We hope for the sake of Eunice's residents that he's right.

Speaking of the all-American toilet, there's one Hollywood star whose career is appears to be heading right down the pan.
Wesley Snipes is still fighting charges of tax evasion. Most recently, he was denied by federal judges when he requested his trial be moved from the central Florida city of Ocala.
It seems the muscular thesp is having less success battling the forces of good than he had combating the denizens evil in Blade (which we at Taxation love. That is, I adore it - and my colleagues have heard of it).
