PARENTAL ADVISORY – CONTAINS BRAPA HUMOUR
This series of posts is a real labour of love. I hope you appreciate the effort and danger involved.
The quality of pub toilet signage becomes more important as you get older. Just ask Mrs RM.
It’s both a matter of finding them (particularly in Spoons), and then finding the right one. Just ask Simon;
To be fair to Simon, ambiguous signage like this one doesn’t help, particularly given modern trends in fashion;
We need a Campaign for Unambiguous Toilet Signage, like the example near Hull Minerva at the top, or this sterling effort from the Bell in Barton Mills;
If the words don’t help, you’ll see the man is smiling as his will be the shorter queue.
It’s the attempts at humour I can’t stand. Five points if you can guess what the male equivalent in the Fox in Rutland is called;
This one from Brentwood is even worse;
And this old favourite is fine if you can tell left from right and east from west;
While in the Stags Head confusion must reign if you’re a bloke needing to phone home;
As so often, the Germans and Poles do this sort of thing properly. How can could this go wrong ?
I ended up in the ladies.
Finally I see some pubs have started putting up some economical special signage just for Simon. The likeness in uncanny.
Just don’t get me started on micropub loos. Or unisex ones.
