Funny Stuff: Bizarre Jokes In Chinese Toilets

The funniest pictures I took in China came from a bathroom.  Let me explain.  I love a good joke as much as the next guy, but humor doesn't always translate well.  Which is its own joke really and made for some very funny pictures.

10:00 pm found us back at the bus station.  This bus was headed straight through from Shen Zhen to Hu Jho.  It was raining out but was quiet and warm on the bus and we were soon asleep.  When we woke up, we were at a rest stop in the Twilight Zone.  It was empty and massive, with no less than 60 stalls in the men's room.  We'll talk about the Chinese Toilets later.   Right now we need to talk about the "joke of the day" signs.  Over each urinal in the rest stop, the designers had placed a little joke for you to read while you did your business.  They even translated them into English.  This turned out to be very funny.  Probably much funnier than the original joke.

Joke of the Day:  "I have not cooked?   Ha ha

This joke I like.  In English there's a touch of adult humor in it.  Plus, I just like calling people's mom's skirts.  "Dude, you mom is a skirt!"

Oh yeah.  The old dead turtle joke.  He he...What?

So, if you're every just looking for jokes and humor in China at 2:00 in the morning, try the bathroom.  There's a sentence I'll bet you never thought you'd hear.
