Thursday Doors: A Bit of Toilet Humour!!


Last week Norm featured some oddball doors on his post : Norm’s Thursday Doors  so I thought I’d do something a bit quirky for this week’s Thursday Doors.

Here’s the info from Norm’s blog re: Thursday Doors:

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in on the fun by creating your own Thursday Doors post each week and then sharing it, between Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time), by using the blue link-up button on Norm’s blog:  Norm’s Thursday Doors April 28th 2016

I’ve got just the door and accessories in mind….   A toilet door! Sorry I did warn you this was a quirky post.

Well it’s colourful isn’t it, ladies? The image is a bit blurry, no I wasn’t inebriated when I took it! I was stone cold sober I swear! Sorry that it’s a bit out of focus but my phone wasn’t impressed by my taking a photo of a toilet door! Given that the post is a bit bonkers I don’t suppose that the blurry image matters too much.


Perhaps the door isn’t as interesting  or as amusing as the unusual signs that live just beyond the toilet door. Someone’s got a sense of humour..

These two images …. certainly made my toilet visit entertaining.


I don’t think I’ll wash my feet in the sink… but thanks for the reminder… we’re in Cambridge not a beach resort!!

I took these photos after having a lovely Thai meal at Thaikun Cambridge.  I was with my youngest daughter.

The food  and décor are great. Their slogan (From the Streets of Bangkok,) is just right. Both times I’ve eaten there it’s been first class, so do go there, have a lovely meal – but whatever you do don’t forget to visit their unusual loo before you go!

The image to the left (below,) is one you often see but the one to the right…. is this a new yoga pose best perfected on a toilet seat? The hover pose? And the person on the toilet kind of looks a bit like he’s got either a long neck like ET, or no neck at all. In fact I suspect that head is in fact a balloon masquerading as a head! Hope it doesn’t go bang and give the person in the next cubicle a dreadful fright!

So you never know what lurks beyond a door….fascinating things doors.

Hope you like my jokey post for this week’s Thursday Doors! Sorry for being so bonkers Norm! I promise to do something more conventional, and cultural next time!

  1. That was good for a nice chuckle! Feel free to be creative like this anytime, the world can always use a little more silly. I love some of those odd signs. Well done 🙂

  2. Fascinating images and story Marje. Many years ago a cousin was doing post doctoral research at Cambridge and lived in college. He told some interesting stories about toilet use that connect with your images, certain students were a bit confused upon encountering western toilets. A steep learning curve.

  3. That sign of a person squatting on the toilet reminded me of when a Chinese couple who lived nearby asked if I would take care of their five year old son a couple of days a week while they worked. My two boys came running downstairs the first day he stayed with us and shouted for me to go up and show him how to use the toilet. When I got upstairs he was in the same position as depicted on that sign. I wasn’t very well traveled in those days so didn’t know that in some countries that’s how people ‘do their business’ and I tried to get him to sit on the seat. He looked at me as if I’d gone mad and refused so I left him there to get on with it. Maybe that’s why the other sign says ‘Don’t wash your feet in the sink’.
