The Writing on the Wall

From loo read to loo write: this post celebrates the time-dishonoured practice of bathroom graffiti. One small request: please post all your contributions under the comments section of this particular post. That way we'll have them all in one place.

Ok, here goes:

Ashim Dasgupter kripae meyera bhalo mod khete sikheche.
(First floor loo at Oly Pub)

Lisez l'Bible
[read the Bible] (Toulon railway station, France)

Picasso's balls
[illustrated by two cubes] (Men's toilet, first floor, UG Arts building, Jadavpur University, c.1990)

"To pee or not to pee, that is the question."

I forget where I read this, but I think this was on a Presi toilet wall.

this is not quite writing on the wall, but more like writing on the door telling you where you (as gent or lady, of course) are supposed to go.

this interesting couple of loolets is on the border of bengal and sikkim: 'ladies - toilet' and 'gents - short toilet'.

and then, when we got to dzongri, we saw the little wooden board with the 'way to toy late' on it.

apart from all those Arun+Madhu and various adjectives, I think the best one for me was a comment written at a position that a person would be able to note only from a certain vantage point when she got down to the important business:

"Are you wet enough?"

This was written with white chalk in the 2nd floor toilet at St.Xavier's College Ladies' Loo. I think some one later rubbed it off.

nd while we are on the subject, I would sincerely request, to whom it may concern, for an invite from the creator of this loo-ny bin to send this constitutionally perverted freak in order to add to the loo-nacy and increase the sadistic and disgustingly liberating repression of the toilet bowls to newer heights.

Sin-cerely,
Panu.
