1. Each toilet cubicle has a limited occupancy of 1 person only. (Don’t try to save space by sharing a toilet with your friend at the same time.) 2. Only release your excrement into the toilet bowl. If you release it anywhere else, the dissatisfied foot of the management will kick you. 3. You must take good care of the toilet facilities. It is strictly forbidden to remove the toilet from the cubicle and take it out of the toilet room. 4. Place your excrement in the excrement bucket provided. If you release it into the toilet bowl, it could… Read more »

I had a second thought. I think the whole thing means “Foreign men with beards must not hang around in these toilets violating young Chinese men”, or something along these lines.

My guess on 8 is “If you really need to use the toilet, then do it; don’t just hang around in here bothering people.” And I think 10 is more like “Please study these rules and make an effort to follow them.”

Van Gogh started his painting career when his foot was trying to re-satisfy itself, but, in the confusion, he accidentally broke the wall. As punishment, he was forced to make a disorderly painting, and that’s what got him into abstract art.

Boy, they sure do take many precautions against the occasional toilet boil, common among poor folk unable to access a soup kitchen or stove top to cook their meals.

Okay – some of these Engrish signs are somewhat legible, perhaps at best including parts where it’s completely nonsense. But this sign wins the prize for being 100% nonsense. Someone did (it seems) figure out what message each of these items is meant to convey, but this sign just totally stands out for its absolute abandon of reason, logic and grammar. Bravo!
