Using a public restroom already has its downfalls, as we all know. I mean, there are very few things that we perceive as being dirtier than our toilet, but the thought of a public restroom is enough to make your skin crawl. The photos below have an unclear intention. Some of them could be perceived as themed indicators as to which is the correct bathroom. Others are most definitely there to make that uncomfortable time that you have to spend in the public bathroom, all that much more awkward and unbearable. Take a look at these 35 funny public bathroom signs.
1. Baseball Analogy:
Nothing like insulting someones manhood to try to make them step up their bathroom etiquette. I’m thinking this one may actually infuriate some of the little fellas out there, instigating them to actually make a bigger mess.
2. May Be Longer Lines:
I’m going to blame the longer lines on the man-code that bathroom conversations are frowned upon.
3. Peach Or Banana?
This one should be easy enough for the adults. I’m not so sure I would want to be the one explaining this to the little ones, though.
4. Beware Of The Bees:
BEES? I think I’ll hold it until I can find another restroom.
5. Be A MAN!
Be a man, your mother doesn’t work here. Another good example of shaming the nasty guys out there.
6. Beer vs Martini:
This is definitely an up-scale drinking establishment. You know, because dive bars don’t even have martini glasses.
7. Bar Beer Bottles:
This one’s kind of crude. Funny, but crude!
8. I Am The Great Cornholio:
If it takes Beavis to make you flush, you may have bigger problems.
9. This Is Not Kindergarten:
Looks like a pretty typical truck stop bathroom. At least the boogers can easily be cleaned off that shiny tile.
10. All About The Bunz:
Is this one confusing, or is it just me?
11. Beach Theme:
I’m a bouy! Gulls are over there!
12. Olfactory Sorrow And Great Fanny Anguish:
There’s got to be a better way to say that the seats are uncomfortable and the fan doesn’t work.
13. Flush Reminder:
I guess playing on people’s insecurities could be pretty effective. Like asking a travel companion if they remembered to lock the house door at the beginning of a long trip. Even if they KNOW that they locked it, they’re going to be second guessing themselves for miles.
14. Do Not Drink:
I assumed that this was common sense. Apparently there is a problem if they actually had to post a sign.
15. Do Not Drop Butt:
And this one is another no brainer. I don’t know anyone that is going to intentionally dunk their goods in the water.
16.Passive Aggressive Shaming:
You forget to flush the toilet one time and the sign nazi will never let you live it down.
17. ‘I’ Don’t Get It:
No, really I do. I can imaging all the first time drinkers giggling about the ‘innie’ or ‘outie’ illustration. Let’s just hope they don’t think it means their belly button and go into the wrong bathroom.
18. Garbage Can Is Not A Toilet:
Yeah? Well. What about the sink? Come on guys, don’t act like I’m the only man that’s ever ‘gone there’.
19. Hide Your Potato:
This one makes me a little uncomfortable. I didn’t even bring my potato. Is that a derogatory statement about my Irish descent?
20. Hot Dog Joint:
Here’s another one that just might not be appropriate to explain to the kids.
21. No Asking Stall-Mates:
Stall-mates? I thought they were singly occupied areas. Now I’m finding out I can bring a friend? No, thank you!
22. Jamaican Restroom:
Still better than Mexico. Every time I asked where the bathroom was, they replied with, “Big baño o’ little baño?” Then they’d point to the ocean then to a door in the back of the building. Um, little baño, please.
23. Seat Up Or Seat Down?
If it weren’t for the M and W, I would think that these bathrooms differed depending on which type of waste was to be excreted.
24. No Dumping:
You’re right. Usually I’d prefer a little more privacy for dumping.
25. Important- No Laughing:
What a buzz kill. Sometimes you’ve got to let out a snicker or two when other people’s volume is out of control. Get a sense of humor!
Finally, a kid friendly one. Except, most kids don’t even know who Pac-Man is anymore.

28. I Will Prosecute:
I guess management feels pretty strongly about this. I feel like I just got yelled at.
29. Our Aim:
More shaming for the men. Ladies, keep calm and stay seated. That’s all.
30. The Rooster And The Cat:
This is no nursery rhyme. I think you get it!
31. Unisex Bathroom Courtesy:
Both points are totally valid.
32. Shooting Range Instructions:
On number 6, I would change it to ricochet rather than backsplash. You know, to keep with the theme.
33. Do Not Wash Your Feet In Toilet:
Or your hands, or your hair, or your teeth… Does this really warrant a sign?
34. Women Fish:
I don’t even know what to say about this one. Is this some sort of woman shaming about odor that I don’t even want to talk about?
Wolverine would look cooler if he had brown sideburns instead of a black beard and mustache. But, who am I to judge this guy’s creativity?
Whether the intention of these signs was embarrassment, shaming, or simply for humor’s sake, they all one thing in common. They are perfect illustrations that some people just have way too much time on their hands.
