I don't get it, what do you guys call the toilets then? O_O Urination/Faeces Facillities? Or the lavetory?

"Oooh I'm just going to pop off to the LAVETORYYYYY"

o_O


Restroom/Bathroom, usually, though I'd admit neither really make that much sense outside of a bath-equipped room (well, nothing but toilet makes sense, actually). Restroom, I suppose makes sense, if you like to rest on the toilets and read the newspapers for hours or something. ._.

I know there are a few more, but I don't hear them enough to be able type them off the top of my head.

I say Water Closet (No one understands what I am saying), Loo (If people do understand, they make fun of me), Urinals(Man-Toilets, of which I haven't used in 12 years), and sometimes, when I am feeling fiesty, I call it the defocatory device (people just get quiet and edge away from me). Go me. :evil:

And yeah. "It's noon. Let's go take a nap while we rid ourselves of bodily waste. Yeah, Jan? We'll be back in, say, four or five hours. Ok? See you at dinner!"

I always say it as fish...not cheese...... o_O

Thats the only saying I know.
AND I'm bittish. :oops: XD


My grandfather always used to say "What'd you know about the price of beans?", meaning whatever you said made no sense or had no relevance. He was born in America, and his parents were Slovak, so I guess that phrase or variations are more widespread. I use it myself :)

I'm a big fan of bathrooms, just on principle, and also because I find them to be wonderful examples of how far humanity has come...

Just think, it used to be that you had to scrawl "For gud time call Unk at Bonk bonk smash bonk" into the walls of caves with rocks, bones, or fingernails.

Now we can write the same thing in seventy-four colors of Sharpie pens.

Anyway, I call them johns, heads, cans, toilets, bathrooms, restrooms, or the ever-popular, overly-polite, anti-descriptive "facilities." Depends on my mood, and what color sharpie I have with me at the time.

Haha, yes, I often spend too much time in public restrooms because I'm too busy reading the stalls and walls. It's like a novel made especially for the toilet. Amazing.

I thought that was more of a Jersey thing. Both places have odd accents, though.


Don't be afraid to see the truth, even if no one wants you to. Be yourself and not a fool. Don't ever be afraid to speak your mind and listen to criticism. Dissent is keeps our country progressive and willingness to challenge yourself is what keeps yourself ever evolving.

There is something I have never been able to understand as why Americans call them a john when there are Americans called John?

"John" is slang for a lot of things in the States. I won't go into them since some aren't exactly appropriate. I'm assuming it's because it's a popular name, therefore it gets used for a lot for random things.

Why a "john?" From what I understand, it is named after Sir John Harrington, who invented a working flushing toilet in the late 1500s that was never fully implemented because people didn't care so much about sanitation until the 1800s. Stupid Pasteur not being born yet.

"Head" came about because the cessbox or opening was at the head of a boat - wind on a sailing vessel usually came from the back, after all, and would blow all those odors away from the boat. Most people consider this a good thing.

"Can" because...well, because you can go in one.

"Loo" is, as far as I know, a malapropism on the French habit of putting restrooms as number 100. If you look at old-school typewriters, they don't have a number 1 because the lowercase "L" and th 1 were the same key. So, 100 = loo.

This random thought of people saying, "I'm just going to go to the one-hundred" just crossed my mind...
Or, if one scored 100 on a test, one could say, "heyy, I got loo :)"

Hm...I don't know much about british sayings, despite my form tutor being british, but I find "Oorigh Poppit" amusing :P

Wow, Shapu just has a never-ending wealth of knowledge. I think you should have a daily random fact for PPT!

Yeah, y'all is a southern thing, but moreso a Texan thing. You know someone's a tourist when they say "you all".

Oh, and btw, try going to Paris and speaking French with a Texan accent. Even if you're fluent they know you're a tourist. :P

And I always find "bloody hell", or anything starting with bloody a little odd.

I say bathroom or restroom. Occaisonally I'll say the men's room.

Oh, and my name's John. xD

I'm sure half of the trivia I "know" is actually incorrect. To clarify, though, I'm pretty confident in my toilet knowledge.

Which brings me back to another great British saying:
"Told a pack of porkies," which has nothing to do with people or hogs.
