How many potty puns can you catch?
– It is my duty, to acknowledge,
that reading, in the bathroom,
on the toilet, is a thing.

the way down the sewer,
until it turns into sludge.

is a solid number two.

What better time to learn about business,
than when you're taking care of business.
A business can't simply
keep all the money it makes,

up with what you should sell.

own a business, or not,

to buy things you really want.

even if you have very
little money to spare.
It's still possible to start saving.
