    There are plenty of times in all our lives when "nature calls" while we're away from home, work, or school. It's no big deal. You find the nearest public bathroom and take care of business.

    Until not that long ago there used to be a bit of entertainment in store when you assumed your "eliminating" position before the urinal or in the stall. (I'm NOT talking about tearooms, guys; maybe some other time in another thread. :twistedicon_smile.gif Often somebody would've scrawled something on the wall like cavemen did back in their day. Frequently it'd be a variation on the theme "for a good time call..." or tearoom-style messages like "BJ's here, Thursday 4/25 9 PM." But there were times when there'd be interesting or funny writing, too. It would often inspire a whole string of responses as a succession of men took out a pen while doing #1 or #2. "We're a mere speck of sock lint in one of God's toenails" "Does that mean that when we die God's taken His tweezers out? Or does He use His fingers?" "Regular, over-the-calf, or quarter-cut? Tube sox? Argyles? I'm not seeing it in the Bible" "God wears sox?" "The White Sox are God's favorite team," on and on it'd go.

    Nowadays I never see restroom graffiti any more, except in rock clubs now and then. The stainless steel, faux marble, or whatever is a blank slate. What brought on this demise? Is it because many guys can't cut loose from their smartphones and iPods even while they're using the bathroom? Are cleaning crews a lot more vigilant? Dunno, but I kind of miss it.

    Written on a chalk board over the urinal in a local club here someone had scrawled, "Blow me 8 1/2." and under that someone else had added, "cm"

    In the university library here, the library staff has theft warnings notices in all the bathroom stalls. Part of the notice reads, "A second is all a thief needs...". To which someone had continued by hand "...because they're all premature ejaculators."

    Written over a old toilet in a men's room:

    "Please jiggle handel"


    Written below that: "If I do, will it jiggle Bach?"

    Apparently in the Tate Modern this is in one of the stalls:

    Here I sit
    And hesitate,
    Should I shit,
    Or masturbate?

    I went to Harvard and in the bathroom it said "Stop transcorporate nationalism!"

    Everyone has their bathroom walls icon_razz.gif

    I was so innocent & naive about gay things in my 20s, c. mid-1970s. I was taking Theatre & Broadcasting degrees, and being on campus most of the day sometimes I'd use a mens room in our theatre building. Sized to handle an 1100-seat house, it had a dozen stalls.

    And I'd read all this gay-porno graffiti, and I stupidly thought it was a joke someone was posting. "Nobody would really do that?" I innocently thought to myself. "How crude but funny!" I concluded. "I hope no children read that!"

    Now I realize it was entirely serious. What an air-head I was... icon_redface.gif

    Never forgot this little gem I saw in the old Kirner-Johnson Hall at Hamilton during my sophomore year, I think:

    "Here I sit taking a shit
    and shitting my life away
    at this college where my knowledge
    matters little my mind's gone brittle
    so light a J
    smoke all day
    and shit your life away."

    One of the best parts of taking a dump at my old university was reading all graffiti in the toilet stalls.

    In a reststop in Cataby (a country town on the highway between Perth and Geraldton), Western Australia:

    "Some people come here to shit and stink
    Others come here to sit and think
    But I come here to scratch my balls
    and read the writing on the walls."

    I read that as a nine year old and burst out laughing for an embarrassingly long time.

    Unfortunately I never remember the stuff I see on the walls, but It does make a visit to a public restroom more bearable. Love this thread btw haha.

    Gotta say it's good to see that this ancient art form appears to be alive and well on campuses, at least. Having not had to answer nature's call in any college's men's room for quite some time I had no way of knowing. icon_wink.gif

    Here are a couple of classics from the stalls of academia.

    At MIT (fittingly enough) this question in the form of a fraction once appeared on a wall: B4I4QRU/18 my dear? icon_biggrin.gif

    This metaphysical gem greeted dump-takers in a Columbia dorm:
    If God had been a college student, He would've waited six days and pulled an all-nighter!

    There is a stall on the 3rd floor of the Derrek Building at Texas State University covered in a textual race war, with people fighting for both sides and some your mom jokes, that's probably been occurring slowly for YEARS. epic.

    One of my law professors said that in one of the bathrooms he saw this written on the wall:
    "When charged with exposure, he replied with composure, De minimis non curat lex."

    The last part is a Latin legal maxim which means the law is not concerned with small things.

    "Here I sit broken hearted - came to shit but only farted"

    In the mens' room of the Visual Arts dept. of U of Louisiana there's a dicussion of the existence of God followed by an impressive array of penis drawings, the phone numbers of various faculty members who give blow jobs, and one claim about a party where the animation prof took a green banana up the butt.

    I've seen "The grout wall of China" "The Grout Gatsby", "Grout minds think alike",and other similar sayings all written on the grout between the bathroom tiles.
