10 creative and funny bathroom signs

Most public restrooms around the world have the boring male/female signs to show which side you should go to. But these signs have taken toilet humour to the next level.

We've all seen them around the world, and some toilet signs are certainly funnier or more quirky than others.

Here, in case you forget them, are the international toilet rules:

If you lift it up ... put it down
if it runs out ... replace it
if you miss it ... wipe it
if you're finished ... flush it
if it smells ... spray it

Please remain seated for the whole performance

Stand closer - it may be shorter than you think

Now take a look at 10 really funny and unusual public toilet or restroom signs from across the world.
