Gee Whiz! 8 Hilarious Restroom Signs

Lots of things in life are tricky and take time to truly master, like baking or learning a foreign language. Potty training? Not so much. These nine ridiculous restroom signs make me feel pretty good about my aptitude in the loo, and make me wonder what the heck is going on out there.


As a general rule, the wall-climbing peekaboo man is a hazard I try to avoid. This sign would inspire me to hold it, no matter how badly I had to go.

Lazy Boy

I’ll admit that I’ve never really considered the tough decisions men have to make when they visit the restroom: sit, stand, or bring your own chair and do a little target practice. This restroom clearly encourages the latter.

Puttin’ on the Spritz

This restroom must be for magicians … or for people who drink only spritzer.

Never mind the puzzling introduction to toilet perching—I’m actually glad this warning exists. With a toilet that big, perching could only mean eventual soggy death.

Riddle Me This …

I think of this sign as a preemptive strike against whatever cognitive skill I would use to get myself to the gender-appropriate restroom. Don’t mistake.

The emphasis on “sanitary” here makes me wonder what kind of seat covers the guys across the street offer—burlap?

Buckle Up

The vibrating toilet! Genius! I just hope it comes with a seat belt.

Let Freedom Rain

I suppose I can’t wash my feet in your toilet, either?

During my years spent in Canada, I have heard about many strange behaviours in toilets, including ladies sitting backwards, standing up over the toilet bowl, etc .... These arrogant, messy people also don't clean up after themselves. Perhaps they would be more comfortable dealing with a Hole toilet.....
Written notices about toilet etiquette are simply ignored. I thought that Canadians would all have a bidet in all their toilets, but some locals don't even know the meaning of the word.

" Gentlemen, please stand closer, it is't as long as you think. Ladies, please remain seated during the entire performance" I saw that at a restaurant in Virginia. pretty funny. thanks for the laughs!

Interesting, but I wish the locales of these signs were included. My guess for the "Don't mistake" sign is Japan, but there are lots of possibilities...
