Interlude – Let’s Do A Thing

Interlude – Let’s Do A Thing

I haven’t been able to escape IRL conversations about mens bathroom etiquette. (Seriously, there are urinals with reading material above them? What is with you guys and reading in the bathroom?!) As such, let’s make the hashtag #comicsmakemylifeweird a thing on the Twitter-bits. Have fun with it!

Example: I was given an awesome minicomic about the history and social impact of womens’ private grooming. #comicsmakemylifeweird

Do your worst/best, guys.

    I’m not on the Twitter. I’ve never even thought seriously about setting up an account–UNTIL NOW, THANK YOU VERY MUCH, JENNY.

    well you see, it is forbidden for men to speak or socialize in the bathroom.
    Example as follows: 😛

    Oh yeah, that’s something they do, regarding the reading materials. My college sticks flyers and stuff up there, like right now they have info about how they moved (Are moving?) the testing center temporary.

    I mean, hey, your gonna stare at the wall /anyway,/ so you might as well get college news at the same time.

    I read the stuff people write on the stalls. Chicago Ted gets around.

    Lots and lots of stickers. Of sport teams, music bands, holiday locations (especially on toilets in skiing regions), anarchistic and/or antifascistic movements, with simple jokes on it…
    And that’s just the urinals! Somehow many toilets end up with a lot of material to read.

    Here is a machinima bit from a few years ago that does a pretty good job of explaining proper procedures in the mens room.

    Starts out boring but gets funny when they reach the point of what happens when the rules are broken.

  10. mightycleric says:

    Also, reading while in the bathroom is another thing guys do instead of talking. It is something to pass the time so that it isn’t as boring, and yet avoids awkward conversations.

    If it makes it easier, though, you can just view reading while using the bathroom as an example of a way that guys can multitask.

  12. Andy4Hire says:

    Some chain “travel centers” (read: truck stops) post catalog pages over the urinals so men can read ads for things available in the chain’s store. Haven’t tried the stalls, but I imagine they do something similar in there, and presumably also in the ladies’ room.

  13. FreeFlier says:

    My college had some bathrooms with The Wallpaper Journal (if I remember the name correctly) posted above the urinals and on the inside of the stall doors.

    I’ve encountered blackboards in several places, probably to cut down on the graffiti.

    Sorry, but even my mother reads in the bathroom. It seems to be a family thing with us.
