Oh no! Somebody spiked the punch at the barn dance!
What's 7 foot tall and smells?-An outhouse of course! You wouldn't want to be caught short on a a cold, cloudy, wintery night. An outhouse, if you had the luxury of possessing one of these, was located 50-150 feet away from the home. So you literally had to answer the call of nature. Once you managed to get to the cubicle, there was no electric light to switch nor a sewage system to flush. On top of that, there weren't any windows!
