Getting away from toilets.

To write such crap on a toilet wall.

The toilet stalls at the University of Oslo had black doors and walls, possibly to avoid graffiti, but more likely a result of 1960s Scandinavian Design. The result was that the half inch or so of pinewood edging around the doors was crammed with mini-graffiti. One I liked was similar to Gnu's, located way down on one side of the door: "You are now shitting at a forty five degree angle".

Another from the same place (Frederikke for those who've been to the UiO) in 3 different handwritings. The first two are well known, but the third one I've only seen that one place:

Some come here to sit and think
I come here to shit and stink.

Others come to scratch their balls
And read what's written on the walls.

When all those other folks are gone
I sit here and whack my dong!

From a University library in Coventry:

"There's more pleasure in a good sh*t than in all the World's literature"


Seen (in the 60s) on a wall in France (apologies for the poor written French):

"Algérie Français (crossed out)
"Algérie Algérienne (crossed out)
"Algérie Français (crossed out)
"Algérie Algérienne."

added underneath in English
"Make your bloody minds up".


On a wall in Mitcham (Surrey)

"Elections are rigged -
"The Government always gets in"

One that still makes me chuckle was this

'Punk rock was invented so's ugly people could have sex'

One I saw in a disgusting Portuguese toilet in Lisbon, among all the Filho da puta [son of a bitch] signs on the wall was one in English which read.

'Happiness is when it comes out solid'

I think we've all had those problems with strange foreign food.

Line dancing was invented so that Morris dancers could have someone to take the piss out of.

Gents in pub in Loughton, Essex, 1980:   "Linda Lovelace has the nicest teeth I've come across."

Men's bog at Imperial College, London, 1970: "Shit hard - it's a long way to the refectory."

Not uncommon, esp. in lavvies used by both ladies and gents:

"If you sprinkle
When you tinkle
Be a sweetie
Wipe the seatie."

Seen in Southall College (early 1980s)

I'm into sadism, necrophilia and beastiality -
Am I just flogging a dead horse?"

"No, Just a very old joke"

Under a "Men Working" sign in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

The difference between "men working" and "men not working" is hard to see. So signs are thus needed.
When women work, it is easily seen. No signs needed.

Not EXACTLY a graffito, but close enough for the purpose:

Sixty years ago, when I was in high school, I saw this.

Across the street from the high school was a church, with a huge neon sign, saying, "JESUS SAVES".

One morning, on coming to school, we all saw, attached just below that sign, a very large fabric banner, saying, "GOLD BOND STAMPS".

I might also tell you that the neon sign was evidently on a timer, and it turned off at 12 p.m. So the saying around our school was, "Jesus Saves till midnight; after that, you're on your own!"

eric, shared your one about morris dancers at work, ever with a good response.



   If we're doing t-shirts, I saw one in the 70s, repeat 70s, where Snoopy was saying,

   "I've made 120 decisions today

    And they were all wrong."



   Ideal for all those on the wild goose chase of perfectionism.

There's a house on Highway 7 between Peterborough and Lindsay in Southern Ontario with a bright red roof that says, in white letters about two feet tall,"JESUS IS ALIVE". The next house to the West has a brown roof with two foot letters that read,"SO IS ELVIS!"

I've often wondered how these neighbours get along.

Bunny, Hillbilly Hare

Promenade across the floor. Sasche right on out the door.
Out the door and into the glade and everybody pronimade.

Step right up you're doing fine. I'll pull your beard you'll pull mine.
Yank it again like you did before. Break it up with a tug of war.

Now into the brook and fish for the trout. Dive right in and splash about.
Trout! Trout! Pretty little trout! One more splash and come right out.

Shake like a hound-dog. Shake again. Wallow around in the old pig pen.
Wallow some more. Y'all know how. Roll around like an old fat sow. Alamand left with your right hand.
Follow through with a great left band. Now lead your partner the dirty old thing.

Follow through with an elbow swing. Grab a fence post. Hold it tight.
Womp your partner with all your might. Hit him in the shin. Hit him in the head.
Hit him again. The critter aint dead. Womp him low and womp him high.
Stick your finger in his eye. Pretty little ring. Pretty little sound. Bang your heads against the ground.

Promenade all around the room. Promenade like a bride and groom. Open up the door and step right in.
Close the door and into a spin. Whirl! Whirl! Twist and twirl! Jump all around like a flying squirrel.
Now don't you fuss and don't you swear. Just come right out and form a square.

Now right hand over and left hand under. Both join hands and run like thunder.
Over the hill and over the dale. Duck your head and lift your tail.

Don't you stray and don't you roam. Turn to your partner. Promenade home.
Corn in the cornfield. Wheat in the sack. Turn to your partner. Promenade back.

And now you're home. Bow to your partner. Bow to the gent across the hall.

And that is all!
