What you think of this "odd" notice in restaurant bathroom?

This weekend I went to my favorite small sushi place. I went to use the restroom and I was disturbed at this odd notice in the restaurant bathroom.

There was what you would consider a normal notice on white paper laminated saying to please only flush toilet paper and then along side the notice was this picture:

Does this seem a bit odd to you?

@chai2,
Yeah funny - but disturbing in a restaurant. I don't want poop jokes in place in which the main focus is food.

@chai2,
I guess I'm coming at it from the thought that if that's what it takes to remind some pig to wipe their butt and then make the effort to flush, it fine with me.

Until this one particular company moved into the building where I worked, I had no idea that it was obviously not an occassional mistake to leave all sorts of horrid things unflushed. There is a sub species of human who think it's someone elses job to flush their ****.

I get it that the picture doesn't directly say that, but anything to make these cretins aware of the load they are leaving behind is fine with me.

I don't want to go into a restaurant and find someone's poop joke sitting in the commode. That would make me lose my focus on the food faster than the sign.

@Linkat,
If it reminds one person to wipe, I'm for it.

@ehBeth,
I guess I would not think people would need such a reminder.

It is up there with the sign that reminds employees to wash their hands before returning to work. Scary that you would hire a restaurant employee and need to remind them of this.

@Linkat,
Those employee hand-washing signs are municipally-mandated here.

Oh God Linkat, you'd be amazed at what people have to be reminded to do.

For well over 3 years, 2 emergency room visits and at least 10 doctors visits I had to medically deal with the results of restaurant employees who didn't think this applied to them.

It was the worst pain imaginable.

@Linkat,
The general breakdown of decency in the public sector seems to be here. They claim it's in the name of honesty or reality...but I find it ultimate in tastelessness. Civilization as we know it seems to be going down a slippery slope.

Here's just one example of an acceptable (by whom) commonly run commercial for toilet paper:

I enlarged the images...was that from that Seinfeld episode where the father didn't wash his hands before making the pizza?

Oh God yes, I envision it like that.

Years ago I worked for an agency that haad an office of US Dept Ag in the same bldg. They had these neat posters to be placed in 'COMMONS" areas in aag compnies that hired migrant workers (an old fashioned term for undocumented aliens).
In english and SPanish would be the admonition to
"DO NOT DRINK WATER FROM DITCHES"

Yes ..... Poppie is a little sloppy.

I can compare almost everything I experience in my life to a Seinfeld episode.
