Instead of writing "Toilet" they could have wrote "Men" and "Women" like most bathrooms in the U.S. :)

Perhaps this is an interesting example of cultural differences? For me from Germany the choice is quite clear, left women, right men. But I can't explain it exactly why, only I don't see such icons for the first time.

Is that because of the skirt-like shape maybe?

I have never seen these before, and as a result.. well.. I posted this in various places and people are having a hoot with them :laugh:

Yeah, I think it is. Also the stereotype "broad shoulders + narrow hips = man".

In Scotland those signs could be interpreted as meaning Highlanders and Sassenachs. :smile:

Those symbols denote which direction gravity will operate. In the case of the door on the left, the gravity points towards the sun and will lead you into the next episode of Doctor Who. For the door on the right, the gravity points away from the sun and down the dunny, so you can be assured that you will emerge a lighter, more relieved, more efficient human being with a greater power-to-weight ratio, ready for the next episode of Doctor Who. Just remember to be out before the Night of the Full Moon so that you don't get locked in there after closing time.

In any case, don't forget to pack supplies for your journey of nature's calling:

Your man 007 [Sean Connery] never had that problem - he knew a thing or two about the Dutch :anicat:

Why is it called a bathroom in America, there are no baths in it! They are lavatory pans or toilets not bathrooms.
