16 Times Bathroom Graffiti Was Weirdly Insightful


Let’s be honest – we’re all a little fucked up. And therapy is expensive.

Fortunately, using the restroom is gratis, at least around these parts.

(Apparently, the right to pee is not considered a basic human right in Europe, and probably a few other places. To each their own, but we have to wonder, would anyone really rather watch someone wet their pants – and, if you’re a staff member in said establishment, clean it up – rather than give someone access to your WC?)

…But we digress.

You’re probably wondering how public restroom access is supposed to solve your existential crisis, so now we’ll tell you.

It all comes down to bathroom graffiti – AKA the one place where people can come together and anonymously crack jokes, ask big questions, and judge each other savagely, all without real-world consequences. (Other than the Internet).

While often crude, meaningless, and unoriginal, occasionally, a few thoughtful poopers leave us with something a little more insightful to mull over.

Here are 16 times bathroom graffiti was wiser than we ever could have imagined.
