Bathroom Blogging.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 5:37 pm

Restroom sign.jpgI have never been one to write on bathroom walls, nor do I advocate the practice. However, when using a graffiti covered restroom, it is impossible not to read the scribbling of others who find it acceptable to write on bathroom walls. Here, via Beautiful Atrocities, is a nice sampling of Restroom Graffiti. Here is a specific example from the collection, which I hope was not written in a restroom anywhere near where my friend Catfish lives.

Here is a site that is devoted to public restrooms. For the world traveler, the site lists “Clean Restrooms Around the World” and “The World’s Nicest Public Restrooms” (with pics). This would be very useful for Blackberry users who find themselves in places such as Basel Switzerland in wicked need of a restroom. You might find that you are within walking distance of a nice, clean, safe spot to take care of the biological imperative. I suppose that those who do not travel with a Blackberry (and who are hopelessly anal retentive) could use the site in connection with planning a trip and future craps.

As some of you know, I have been known to be so shitfaced absorbed in a scholarly discussion of blogging that I inadvertently entered a ladies room in Helen Georgia. At the time I was quite surprised to find that the ladies room was infinitely grosser than the men’s room. I have since assumed that to be an anomaly, and it may well be, however, it appears that there is some research to show that ladies rooms are more germ-laden than men’s rooms. I’ll be more careful in the future, as I’ll take messy over infectious any day.

Now, go forth and evacuate.


  1. Now Jimbo, you know I live in Georgia. All of us GA boys are hung like mules, Cat.

  2. Must be why every other female you meet in Jersey is from Georgia.

  3. Which illustrates that commenting is more like bathroom graffiti than anything else.

  4. Well I don’t know if that’s true, about Ladies Rooms… whoops. Excuse me. Be right back. Jim’s sermon has, um, inspired me.

  5. Jim, what’s the sudden fixation with your waterworks all about? Should you be looking into these?

    Maybe you need one of these for the trip home?

  6. Randy —

    I suppose that I am a bit jealous of those who live in Montana, because it seems to me that in 99.999999999999% of the Big Sky state one can pull over, hop out of the car, and pee on the side of the road in complete privacy. 🙂

  7. Jim, Recondo 32 and I drove all the way across Montana. You can pretty well pull over and piss anytime you want to there. No problem.

    When I was working in a fast-food restaurant while going to college, one of my many duties was to clean the restrooms every night. Trust me. The lady’s room was ALWAYS worse than the men’s room.

  8. I hate to be a turncoat on my gender but let it be said that women are filthy!

    Sometimes I wish I could pee standing up.

  9. New here but have to agree with TJ- women’s rooms are NASTY. Worse than men’s rooms most of the time (yes, I have peed in the men’s room. You think I am standing on line forever for the ladies room???).
