bookideas.com - May 11, 2011Gathered from all around the world, the 150 signs in this little book illustrate that there is more than one way to help a person locate a rest room and then explain its proper use. The signs the author shares are divided into four general sections, "Location, Location, Location", "His & Hers", "Go With the Flow" and "Diversions & Perversions". Whether the outrageous signs point the person seeking "relief" in the right direction, indicates which "door" is the right one, or offers specific instruction on what to do and not do while engaging the facilities, they all have one thing in common - they are funny! While some of the icons indicating which bathroom is intended for a given gender are quite clever and unusual, others issue a stark warning - "If You Have A Penis, And You Want To Keep It, PLEASE Use The Other Bathroom" Of course, bathroom etiquette factors into the helpful hints one finds in some locations. "Please stand closer to the pot. The guy behind you may have holes in his shoes." reads one sign while another warns that "This potty is lazy. Please make sure it flushes all the way so presents aren't left for others." From start to finish this is an amusing book that finds humor where one doesn't normally expect to find it. Just remember, as the blurb on the book's back cover warns, "If you plan to read this book in a public restroom, try to restrain your mirth: the people on the other sides of the stall can hear you laughing!"
BookLoons Reviews - May 17, 2011Here's a novelty book that shows there is more than a little creativity out there when it comes to creating special signs to indicate that you have found that commode you were looking for.
In a search that spanned the globe, the author found and photographed 150 of the weirdest, wackiest, warped and, yes, creative signs that indicate a toilet is at hand.
Not only do these photos (there is no text but one really isn't necessary!) indicate direction and which side is appropriate for a gentleman or a lady, but there are also policing signs that give specific instructions such as 'For Safety and Maintenance Reasons, Please Do Not Stand On The Toilet Seats', 'Please use the restrooms to go potty, Not this closet!', 'GREEN is using both sides of the paper', and 'Toilets and urinals filled with reclaimed water. DO NOT DRINK'.
Besides the typical and not so typical gender icons that indicate which bathroom to use, you'll find some other unique ways of letting you know which W.C. is appropriate. Two of these noteworthy signs are Sitters, Standers and Roosters, Hens.
The most unique of these signs include this terse one from New Zealand – '4U2P', another for dumb folks wearing western attire – 'Never Squat with your spurs on' and for men who smoke – 'Please Do Not Throw Cigarettes in the Urinal. It Makes Them Soggy & Hard to Light'.
Just a few words of warning. If you purchase this esoteric collection of restroom humor, don't leave it in your bathroom. If your guests notice it, their transaction may take longer than it normally would because they'll be engrossed in this little book. On the other hand, you could ask what all the laughter behind the closed door was all about!
