Well? What do you call it....

I don't even want to tell you how the subject came up..
Suffice it to say it just did...
So? What do you call it.?
  • Bathroom
  • Restroom
  • Ladies/Men's Room
  • Loo
  • Lavatory
  • Latrine
  • Head
  • WC
  • Bano
  • Pissoir
  • Privy
  • Bad
  • These are off of the top of my head

As we were sitting around discussing this "During Lunch" no less, I had to giggle, Just how many names does this one little room have? Now, maybe I'm the only one that finds humor in this... Being a soldier & a Flight Attendant I do have to check my vocabulary occasionally...on a plane it's a lavatory, on a military base Army at least it is a Latrine..

While in Copenhagen we took this picture, We thought it was funny! A passerby whispered in my ear, "Love, you know you are standing in front of the Loo" I didn't want to hurt her feelings..I just said "Yes, Ma'am" I'm guessing she didn't see the humor. (Bless her heart)

Wait we found another one, How about Port-a-potty, The next picture is from Sydney, Australia it was a gift from France. I don't even wanna know why France gave Australia a Port-a-potty, I think the USA made out better with the Statue of Liberty!

Come on leave me a comment... What do you call the John?

Many Aussies call it the dunny. Old-style dunnies are called a 'long drop' for obvious reasons. Some people refer to them as the p!sser.

:P Dunnies, funnily enough, have a big place in Australian humour/folklore... there's even a song about going down to the long drop and seeing a redback spider on the toilet seat!!!
