best bathroom graffiti so far

Ancient Roman latrines, Ephesus.

The best I've see so far, from the Reed College Student Union's Men's Room, mid-1980's:

"Please do not throw cigarette butts in the urinal. It makes them soggy and difficult to light."

Certainly not up to yours, but from the early 1940's.

Sign over urinal: "You hold the future of mankind in yout hand."

Don't miss pun in first line.

The best that I saw was in a stall in a dorm at Wellesley College, which no men were meant to see:

"Sex is like ice cream. As soon as it starts to get really hot, it melts."

Like the one from Reed.

In Austin, in the 1970s, there was a great hippie joint called Pecan Street Cafe that had terrific graffiti. Mostly UT students. Unfortunately, I can't remember much now, but I used to always go to the john there just to read the walls.

I think that's where I first saw this classic:

To do is to be - Sartre
To be is to do - Aristotle
Do be do be do - Sinatra

So, Jeff, what exactly were you doing in the women's room?

William,

Well, I just happened to be visiting, and nature calls... but I was just thinking...

I hope my girlfriend didn't write that.

Gosh, the thought had never occurred to me.
