Curious Plumbing: The Funniest Bathroom Signs
Theorists on humour (yes, there are people out there who spend their lives working out why we laugh) all agree that one of the first sorts of a humour any person learns is toilet humour: bum jokes. It’s what leaves kids laughing hysterically, and it can still tickle an adult’s funny bone when done just right. One of the greatest parts of being a plumber working in Sydney, or indeed anywhere in the world, is that you get to see a lot of interesting and amusing bathroom signs – the birthplace of all toilet humour. Here’s just a few of our favourites:

In Japan, they know exactly what face you’re going to pull when you go to the toilet.

The last thing you want when you’re desperate to pee is a little brain teaser. Seriously, I’m stumped.
