Default Toilet Humor

The classic high-level cistern lavatory that has graced our house since it was built in the 1950s is no more. This has nothing to do with my home-cooked curries, I might add. We now have a modern low-level unit which actually works on the first flush - quite an experience for us.

The problem is, the removal of the high-level cistern has left a bare patch on our otherwise tiled wall measuring roughly 14" by 12". I'm not sure we have any spare tiles to fill the gap, although if we do, I'm not sure I want to let His Lordship loose with them.

What should we do about this bare patch? Cover it with a picture perhaps? A motto or quotation? What would be suitable or witty? Here's an opportunity for members to use their best toilet humour to inspire me into action .

How about a vending machine for condoms...Or soda pop if it's going to be a long visit...

Why not just a shelving unit of some sort...

This is vary dangerous Gill...
...I'll be watching intently...
(my guess is the mods will too)

Easy answer to this one, build a magzine rack, you can scoll the side pieces to look like a Urinal and even paint it white.

Hi Gill

Totally out of character I'm going to keep this answer clean and with no hidden meanings ... for the moment!


Idea #1 - Not a scrolling idea but one that appeals to me. Seeing as its high level I think you should put your wood working skills to work and craft a mock window frame complete with glass and paste behind the glass a photo of someone with a surprised expression peering in and down. That should shake the visitors!

Idea # 2
- Cover the patch with a nice board and narrow shelf with scrolled supports and put the toilet rolls right up against the ceiling out of reach. Of course you have to always make sure that you substitute the toilet roll in use with an empty one when your friends come to visit! hehehe!

Idea #3 - Put a framed panel over the patch so it looks like a trapdoor and scroll an EMERGENCY EXIT sign to place on it


That will do me for now but I may well return to this thread
