Potty Rhyme

Check out this article.
The Japanese think we need more poetry in our public restrooms.
Their studies show it will cut down on t.p. use.
Here is the bathroom rhyme I always learned in California.
Mind you it’s from a drought and environmentalist state:
If it’s yellow, let it mellow,
if it’s brown flush it down.
If I see some stranger’s yellow or brown in a public toilet,
it surely cuts down on my paper use…
it’s called I won’t go anywhere near that toilet,
much less use the paper.
Do you have any un-obscene bathroom poetry that you love?
I love to find a cute or inspiring thing in a bathroom stall.
We should start a sharpie revolution for the environment.


  1. When it comes to public restrooms most of them are yuck!but…if I find a clean one i will drive the extra miles to revisit it.germs. imagine. nope don’t want to go there.i don’t visit a public restroom for poetry… the library, book stores or the internet are my favorites.ToOdLeS.ShEiLa

  2. Most of what I’ve seen on the walls in a public restroom is far from poetic…If I come up with any great potty rhymes, I will share them with you first! 😉Most public restrooms give me the heebie geebies — that’s right, I said heebie geebies — do people even use that term anymore??? I am so darn old!
