Instead of just having a stick man and a stick woman, they should have the respective stick figures with arms reaching out as they run, with perhaps a distressed grimace on their face and beads of sweat flying from their heads.

       I like it. The symbols you describe could be used as universal symbols on "restrooms are that-a-way" signs. Just show the stick figures running the appropriate direction.

       "Danger Wet Floor" picture of a little man skidding 7 feet with legs all akimbo! nice one lumpy.

       But how do you depict a person who is standing absolutely still, afraid that if they move one leg even an inch, that they'll crap their pants?

[sorry, I should really avoid this sort of topic . . . . then again . . . have you ever let out a really big fart, only to quickly discover that it wasn't a fart?]

       You know, I would really apologize for that last annotation of mine, if only I felt bad about it.

       so the stomach thing is better now - thank god for that! have a mint!

       I'm not sure if laughing really hard is something I want to do if I really need to use the restroom -- but still a croissant.

I bet Bristolz could do it.

       lumpy gets a croissant; quarterbaker, I have no words.

       How about someone grabbing their crotch with one hand? Hard to draw with stick figures, though.   

       Hey! my vote made a difference.

       If you put one of these signs up at an airport, how many people would make a mad dash for it, hoping for the express ticket window?   

       Howabout a stick figure of a little boy 'pinching it off?'   

       That reminds me: in Livonia, we have this Italian restaurant that in the men's restroom has pictures of every situation of little nude boys peeing. This is also the same restaurant that has the winery overhead in the ceiling latticework, a special guest table right *in* the kitchen, and at one booth, pictures of grotesquely fat italian women everywhere, (thankfully not nude). What's more, it's half a block from the church. Makes me wonder a little about the owner. Also curious to know how many Catholic bishops eat there...

       Ok.. I spit coffee all over my desk. This is the one that finally made me register.

       In beautiful, godforsaken Helensburgh, UK there is a pub that has 'funny' restroom signs. The ladies' lav door features a 3d metal representation of a pair of breasts. The guys' lav has got (please excuse the langauge) a big cock on it. Thankfully, it's flaccid, otherwise it'd have someone's eyes out.

       Slightly off topic: Saw a silly ass movie the other day that involved some players on a space station -- over one airlock door was a black/yellow triangular sign with a stick figure floating feet up, arms and legs wiggling. Genius leaves its mark everywhere.

       No, blissmiss, it is a dirty great cast-iron wang. It is capable of giving any man an inferiority complex.
calum, May 15 2002
  

       Was it rusty, flesh colored or was it shiny silver from curious, tactile admirers?
FarmerJohn, May 15 2002
  

       this deserves to be dragged out once in awhile just for the hell of it.

       how about a sick figure woman escorting a stick figure 5 year old boy in to the ladies room.

       Crowds of stick girls going to the toilet together.
bezzzie1, Feb 09 2004
  

       How about a stick figure holding a mobile phone?   

       Every public toilet I go into, always seems to have people on their mobiles. One person was even on the phone while taking a dump! I thought they were talking to their turd! Have they no shame?
