Mighty Spotty, honored warrior,
File-builder, kitchen foe,
he has vanquished mildew buildup,
he has cleaned the tile and grout.
Noble Spotty, proud, pedantic,
did not run from dirty toilets,
did not fear the soapstain's pall.
Noble Spotty, son of Wiliam,
mighty lord of Texan blood,
son of white trash and oil money,
conquered he where others trembled,
even when his fingers ached,
his fingers burned by 409,
he has scoured Chukar's shower,
he has scrubbed the slick blue tile,
he the bathroom overcomes.

(in other words, the bathroom's clean :)

Somewhere, Longfellow is contemplating posthumous legal action. Or giggling like an idiot.

Possibly both.

Someday I need to actually read "Hiawatha." I was going for more a norse thing, though.

Re: umm...
Ah! The only appropriate response for that bathroom is hopeless defeat :) It's actually not shiny, so if you have some special grout-attacking substance, that might be in order :)

I have to admit, I am bloody well awed at your ability to make a post about cleaning a bathroom interesting. Too cool!!!

Yay :) It *was* interesting, though. I think I lost two pounds to aerobic scrubbing, and the stuff in the corner had unkind words to say about my activities.

You, sir, are a brave soul. I fear to scrub the grout in mine, for I might find the tiles are only held together by flimsy mold and the entire wall would crumble away at my touch. (It wouldn't be the first time)

It's like a metaphor for life, really. Or possibly puppy love. Or the reunification of germany.

Now I want to see you get hold of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor's orchestral score and turn this into an MP3. ;)
