Potty Humor of the Visual Kind

Ah, the bathroom. The facilities. The toilet. The restroom. The head. The can. The loo. The john.

It's the place most of us faced as toddlers in our first struggle for self-control, and the place many of us will face again as seniors in the same struggle.

It's also, supposedly, the birthplace of humor.

The world's oldest known joke, an ancient Sumerian ha-ha that dates back to about 1900 BC, belongs squarely in the realm of potty humor:

"Something which has never occurred since time immemorial; a young woman did not fart in her husband's lap."

Ain't that a knee-slapper?

Today, folks are taking potty humor to entirely new levels. Case in point? These very funny (in my humble opinion, of course) real-life bathrooms.
