Here's a novelty book that shows there is more than a little creativity out there when it comes to creating special signs to indicate that you have found that commode you were looking for.

In a search that spanned the globe, the author found and photographed 150 of the weirdest, wackiest, warped and, yes, creative signs that indicate a toilet is at hand.

Not only do these photos (there is no text but one really isn't necessary!) indicate direction and which side is appropriate for a gentleman or a lady, but there are also policing signs that give specific instructions such as 'For Safety and Maintenance Reasons, Please Do Not Stand On The Toilet Seats', 'Please use the restrooms to go potty, Not this closet!', 'GREEN is using both sides of the paper', and 'Toilets and urinals filled with reclaimed water. DO NOT DRINK'.

Besides the typical and not so typical gender icons that indicate which bathroom to use, you'll find some other unique ways of letting you know which W.C. is appropriate. Two of these noteworthy signs are Sitters, Standers and Roosters, Hens.

The most unique of these signs include this terse one from New Zealand '4U2P', another for dumb folks wearing western attire 'Never Squat with your spurs on' and for men who smoke 'Please Do Not Throw Cigarettes in the Urinal. It Makes Them Soggy & Hard to Light'.

Just a few words of warning. If you purchase this esoteric collection of restroom humor, don't leave it in your bathroom. If your guests notice it, their transaction may take longer than it normally would because they'll be engrossed in this little book. On the other hand, you could ask what all the laughter behind the closed door was all about!
