Bathroom Signs Shouldn’t Be In Code (3-Verse Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Sipping drinks at a trendy new bar,
I’m hoping the john isn’t far.
I rush off on my quest
For a bathroom addressed
To my needs and find symbols bizarre.

So which one’s for gals? Which for guys?
Posting puzzles for drinkers ain’t wise.
I start ravin’: “Be clear!
Tell us ‘Females Go Here.'”
But alas, I must guess and … surprise!

I walk in and find menfolk galore,
Lots of urinals, yellow-soaked floor.
And the smell — unfresh hell —
Sends me rushing pell mell
To the john meant for me. Nevermore!

    An excellent one!! I guess a lot of girlscan vouch for it. It happened to me too, in my long lost student days…

    But , oops…. I landed on this page after clicking your link to “weather weariness”. Sumtin’ ain’t right, no ma’am.

    Ooh la la…what a fun limerick. The raven ain’t the only one who squawked “Nevermore!” after fainting from guys’ “yellow-soaked floors.” We have co-ed bathrooms at home [some fancy houses/apts have johns & jills]. Perhaps in a public co-ed bathroom, one could improve her/his social life? [After he mops flr, natch.]
