    What a classy way of saying “Don’t be ignorant.”

  4. JohnZ | 4:36 am |

    Please show your education by laughing at this sign.

  5. Algernon | 4:39 am |

    Would you like to come up stairs and see my etchings.

  6. Tommy | 4:49 am |

    I would be very confused about what to do. My education is all in my big head, but I think with my little one. Since this is in a bathroom, that’s the one that would be showing.

  7. Zizzybalooba | 4:51 am |

    …Not your shoe size.

  8. Seventy2rd o clock | 4:52 am |

    Shortage of toilet paper?

  9. Chuck | 5:36 am |

    In the washrooms where I work, people are always showing their lack of:
    education
    manners
    hygiene

  10. Chuck | 5:37 am |

    …and proof-read your graffiti !

  11. Seventy2rd o clock | 5:44 am |

    A gentle reminder: Non-educated persons are not so gently reminded to p*** off.

  12. coffeebot | 5:52 am |

    Spangrish?

  13. Classic Steve | 6:18 am |

    Maybe this precipitated the “F*** the Educational Background” t-shirt.

  14. mickeygreeneyes | 6:43 am |

    Hey baby, your education is showing.

  18. Nonsuch Ned | 8:17 am |

    Everything I need to know I learned from “Everyone Poops”

  20. Arden | 9:25 am |

    Or just run for public office.

  21. GwydionM | 10:21 am |

    Shall I compair thee to a nosy parker?

  22. J-Luke | 10:24 am |

    Hmmm, I see you’re well educated there…

  23. Seventy2rd o clock | 10:26 am |

    This sign would be ideal for ‘Asian Confusion Cuisine’…

  24. Peter Chan | 12:34 pm |

    Not before you pay me your tuition fee.

  25. Michael | 2:04 pm |

    [ Insert constipated mathematician joke here. ]

  26. Mike | 2:36 pm |

    Actually that’s a Spanish quote that means “Demonstrate that you are an polite and social people” but instead to translate the idea they translate the words.

    Case of Engrish common. XD

  27. Ralph Hamilton | 3:00 pm |

    The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain. Enough?

  28. xila31 | 5:34 pm |

    Shake that PhD! Whoo!

  29. J | 6:19 pm |

    Used Google Translate and thats what it came up with. Can any Spanish speakers out there make a better translation then Google?

  30. dalahäst | 9:55 pm |

    ‘educación’ usually does refer to education. Here, it is used in the sense of ‘manners’ or ‘etiquette’. Not the most common usage of the two, so it’s easy to see what went wrong.

  31. Ralph Hamilton | 11:13 pm |

    por favor = please

    Demeustre = inflected form of the verb demostrar.

    demostrar = to prove

    su = your

    educacion = education, manners (taste)

    (Please don’t pee on the seat)

  32. Ralph Hamilton | 11:14 pm |

    Or maybe:

    PLEASE FLUSH AFTER USE

    Entrance for dummies is around the back.

  34. Mc-Taz | 11:22 am |

    Let’s put our heads together and see what we can come up with!

  35. forkforkforkfork | 7:47 am |

    I don’t really see a problem here. It’s a fairly subtle message, but it could be taken as “show your education [by flushing the toilet before you leave]”. Similar to “act your age”.

  36. jose | 1:58 pm |

    In portuguese and spanish we say “educado” to “gentleman”. So, “mostre sua educação”, mean “show that you is a gentleman” (mostre que você é educado). Is another way to see the world, there are nothing funny in this. One gentleman is one person with good education.

  37. reloadro | 5:57 am |

    It’s just that in English [education] lost much of its original meaning.
    In Romance languages the word encompasses the meaning of upbringing,manners etc.

  38. sparky | 3:58 pm |

    Is this for gentlemen or women? and yes the world IS funny

  39. Jerome | 10:43 pm |

    Derr… I never did sechondy skoul… but yu cant tel.. rigt?
