SNORK!

That last one looks painful.

How did I miss the subtitle thread yesterday? That was hilarious, folks!

After seeing that, I'm wondering what the Japanese S3x Manual must look like..... holy cow, Batman!

I want to meet the guy who inspired the "No Fishing" portion of that sign.

Medi, GMTA. Also makes me wonder about Japanese potty training techniques. Perhaps the Karma Sutra for taking a sh!t????

Holy cow! how're you supposed to puke?

*snork*!!

No squatting??

What can you fish for, brown trout?

Texgal, one of my Japanese friends has three small kids. He has two bathrooms in his house, one with a western style toilet and the other with the "hole in the floor" squat style. That way the kids learn how to use both. Believe me, the squat position on the floor is not as easy to master as you would think. I have seen footprints on the seats of public western style ones. Many older Japanese only know how to go that way.

Re: Top-right icon - Japan's train restrooms are apparently kept too cold.

*snork* @ Dachew
