Nice Bathroom Humor


One of the things that my readers appreciate is that what I post is suitable for even the youngest members of the family. So much of what calls itself humor these days ranges from blatant filth to innuendo to bathroom humor.

I've had some interesting pictures and information passed on to me lately, though, that I've been wanting to post. Technically, it's bathroom humor, but not what people normally think of when they hear that expression. You'll understand as you read on....

With so much emphasis today on everything being "green," many will see the practicality in a new device called WashUP. It uses the washer’s discarded water as the water for the toilet. Very clever - after all, who needs clean water for flushing?

Pretty clever, huh?

Another innovation for those multitaskers who are the epitome of practical...

going online

Kind of gives "going online" a whole new meaning!

Some people, though, are more interested in uniqueness or beauty. Here are a couple of glitzy toilets on the market for people into "bathroom bling"...

Those who used to visit my funny picture archives will remember the following outdoor toilet from a European city...

Some places in Europe do, however, prefer something with a bit more privacy...

Scary, huh?

I have several bathroom signs that need little or no explanation.

Here's a sign from a bathroom in the Philippines... (Many thanks to two readers who located the original pictures from before my blog was hacked! Thanks to D.W. for helping me restore this one!) :-)

This bathroom sign is obviously from an upscale establishment... (Thanks to M.H. for helping me restore this one!) :-)

This sign says it all for those of us at BJU taking part in the Wellness Challenge...

I'll end this part of the post with a note seen on a bathroom door...

Attention Children: The Bathroom Door is Closed!

Please do not stand here and talk, whine, or ask questions. Wait until I get out.

Yes, it is locked. I want it that way. It is not broken; I am not trapped.

I know I have left it unlocked, and even open at times, since you were born because I was afraid some horrible tragedy might occur while I was in there; but it's been years and I want some PRIVACY.

Do not ask me how long I will be. I will come out when I am ready.

Do not bring the phone to the bathroom door.

Do not go running back to the phone yelling, "She's in the BATHROOM!"

Do not begin to fight as soon as I go in.

Do not stick your little fingers under the door and wiggle them. This was funny only when you were two.

Do not slide pennies, Legos, or notes under the door. Even when you were two, this got a little tiresome.

If you have followed me down the hall talking and are still talking as you face this closed door, please turn around, walk away, and wait for me in another room. I will be glad to listen to you when I am done.

Oh ... and yes, I still do love you.

Mom

The length of a minute depends on which side of the bathroom door you're on.

    What I want to know is, what happens to the fish when the toilet is flushed! I loved the boy/girl sign where they have their legs crossed. Too funny! I think only a mother can truly appreciate the sign you mentioned last. I guess we all have the tendancy to think that our needs are so vital and need help right now. Our culture today certainly does nothing to suppress this way of thinking.

    I agree with Carrie about the fish in the tank on the one toilet. I could understand if the fish were dead since the toilet is where most dead fish end up anyway. And, for the multi-tasker toilet, did anyone have any concerns about the “shock” value of that device? Wouldn’t those electronic devices be quite germy after a while? Thanks for the interesting pictures!

    Carrie and Michael,
    You’re right – there’s something fishy about that setup! My wife and I had the same thought – what about the fish?! Maybe there’s a separate water tank in the center and the fish area surrounds it? Here’s some information I found about it online: “Add a little life to your bathroom with this live aquarium. The fully functioning tank fits American Standard bowls. Custom bowl installation is available. It was designed by Oliver Beckert and it features a 3/8″ acrylic tank, 1.6 gpf., and 22″ x 14″ x 9″ deep.” So apparently it’s real.

    As to the multi-tasker toilet, Michael, a study came out earlier this year about your computer keyboard’s possibly having more germs than your toilet – http://www.informationweek.com/news/hardware/peripherals/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=207501332&cid=RSSfeed_IWK_All

    The multi-tasker toilet may skew that study, in my humble opinion….

    If you ever wanted to have a toilet that was smarter than you are, check out this Japanese invention at the following link via Washington Post:

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/06/24/AR2008062401285.html

    And, there was an article on Fox News a few weeks ago about a billionaire in Thailand, I believe, who was getting rid of his palace except for his solid gold toilet.

    Apparently for some people, there is no limit to their extravagance.

    Have you seen those putting greens for bathrooms?

    No, Dave, I haven’t. Sounds … um … interesting. :-)
