Hopes for agreement drain away

Las Vegas, USA: A summit of southern and northern hemisphere bath manufacturers that was intended to resolve centuries of discord on the subject of plughole design has ended without agreement.

Plugholes manufactured in the southern hemisphere are designed such that water rotates in a clockwise direction while draining from a bath, whereas those in the northern hemisphere are designed to cause water to rotate in the opposite direction.

The attempt to standardise worldwide plughole design was billed as the highlight of the International Bathroom Design Convention in Las Vegas, but it appears to have ended in failure with neither side prepared to compromise on the issue.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
