Signs: For Men Only

@ mirandablue
No offense, guys, but these signs are for you.:p
Above is in Ilonggo, one of our dialects, is loosely translated to:  
PEE HERE AND YOU'RE DEAD

The sign below is also in Ilonggo.  It says---
AVOID FINE, DO NOT PEE HERE.  Task Force Cleanliness.

I have never seen such signs! Incredible that there is a need for them in public areas! Interesting captures!

a much needed sign i think. i hate to be passing by a place reeking in pee.

EG Wow said...

Hmmm. Interesting!

After a very LONG day wt work, I needed this great post. I am laughing, but at the same time thinking “long time overdue.” Glad you translated for me so I could get the full meaning. These give their message plain and simple. There is no possibility for confusion.

Quite incredible.

Andy said...

That's enough to p*ss someone off.

Joy said...

Have they electrified the gate in the first photo, one way to stop the pee.

Inger-M said...

Amazing signs, hope they work!

Lesley said...

A few of these around here would be nice - though maybe without the "you're dead' threat!

the images that sign brought ip in my head!!!

Dinah said...

hay, how uncivilized kasi some people no?

Meri said...

I love the directness of "pee here and you're dead."

Sreisaat said...

(Im)Pak na (im)pak ang una nga sign! LOL. Grabe no? Do we really have to be reminded about peeing in public when it's very basic common sense?

We do need more signs like that around here, too :-)

A most common sign in the Philippines! ^_^
Sign of time

Hahaha... what a howl to read the comments from our non-Asian friends! Men's propensity to piss in public in Asia is something I've never really quite gotten used to, and the ugly pink public urinals don't seem to have made the slightest dent into this practice.

I spray painted something like that on the back of the dumpster of the store that I manage.... I just cough a man peeing on it anyway....aaarrrgggghhhhh

I'd put that sign (the first one) near my car tyres for my dog to read...if only I could teach it to read first.

Wow, I would hope these signs would get someone's attention - can you imagine the epitaph for that one?

tapirgal said...

Funny, Clytie. I also like how direct that sign is :) The world will smell better if guys obey this rule! Francisca, maybe the guys don't like pink.
