Up Shit's Creek Without A Brain

Have you ever looked at a toilet and sincerely thought, "Gee, what's that for?" If you're able to read these words, you probably haven't. That's why when I saw this sign, allegedly posted above a toilet in Cambodia, I knew something was amiss.

If you need a sign to tell you not to squat atop a slippery porcelain pot filled with steamy feces, you've probably got bigger problems than falling into a toilet. I'm willing to bet anyone who has seriously considered this, has also considered jamming a fork into an electrical outlet.

You'd think sitting on a toilet would be pretty intuitive. It's basically a chair, after all. But the truth is, if someone went to the lengths of designing, printing, and posting an actual warning sign, someone must have already squatted on a toilet seat (and most likely fallen in.)

And when I say someone, I mean this guy...

RIP, my man. And thank you for not reproducing.

I saw a sign like this in Vietnam!!! no joke. I also saw one in Japan w/ an illustration advising you to keep your face away from the bidet before operating it.

Oh man... the bidet makes sense though. I can see someone thinking it was a water fountain for midgets or something.

Perhaps good info for paranoid women who think they'll catch syphillis unless they have absolutely no contact with the toilet seat? (I have a Jewish mother, so I know whatof I speak).
