The most hilarious bathroom signs revealed

These comical signs take toilet humour to another level.

Travellers have revealed some of the more bizarre notices they’ve seen en route to the lavatory.

One traveller holidaying in Asia spotted a warning telling loo-goers that it is ‘strictly prohibited to stamp on the toilet’.

Another was left in stitches when they saw a sign for the women’s labelled ‘feman’ with the men’s titled ‘male man’.

One sign, intended to tell people that the bathroom was out of order, got a comical touch after being translated into English with the result reading, ‘this toilet has been bad, please stop using’.
