I suppose I am cheating here a little. I have a poster I bought years ago with all these 'orrible puns and other plays on wit and wisdom.

Like, "If you must cry over spilt milk, please condense it". ;)

One that immediately springs to mind, was on the wall of a men's toilet at the then, RAF Chivenor. Our aim is to keep these toilets clean. Your aim will also help.

Stenciled on the end wall of a "somewhat dilapidated" house:
"This way up" The text was upside down, and had arrows pointing into the ground.

Above a urinal.
Stand closer. It is shorter than you think. And please hit the target.

High school standards:

Over a urinal: Why are you looking here? The joke is in your hands.

In a stall: Here I sit all broken hearted. Came to s--- but only farted.

In a Gents toilet:-

If you sprinkle when you tinkle,
Please be a sweet, and raise the seat!

I was attending a 2-year college in Campbell, California. In a women's
bathroom, written on a wall was, "Look out the window and pretend
you're in a forest." The windows were at the top of the wall, so you
looked up and out at an angle. When you looked, all you saw was the
tops of a couple of evergreen trees and the sky. It really was quite
easy to imagine being out in a forest. (Well, in a modern bathroom in
a forest!)

I hope that the arrow on top of "Peace, Love, Unity, Respect" doesn't mean that they should be flushed.
