Pardon my lack of witty intro here but there are some things that I just need to come right out and say.
I hate bathroom limericks.
There, I said it.
I understand that bathroom cleanliness is important. Public restrooms are breeding grounds for disgusting behavior (you won’t piss all over your bathroom floor, why? WHY? would you do it in public?). People do everything in their power to try and avoid the filth, including posting signs with requests to flush, rules for what can and cannot be flushed, and reminders to wash your hands.
Understand, my qualm is not with those signs. My issue is when signs like this are posted:
If you sprinkle when you tinkle, please be sweet and wipe the seat.
Really? I needed a cutesy rhyme to remind me not to urinate all over the place? As if that’s not bad enough, I recently encountered a sign that pissed (oh THAT’S right) me off even more:
If you spray when you tinkle, please be neat and wipe the seat.
Again, really?? The entire purpose behind the stupid rhyme is, well, to rhyme. Otherwise signs would just say “hey slobs, pee in the bowl, okay?” If you’re going to insist on cheery bathroom reminders, at least get them right.
