My curiosity makes me wonder how this Taiwan tradition started? These [somewhat] wise sayings above the urinals in men’s bathrooms… I find myself exposed to [what the cleaning lady thinks are] profound thoughts while standing at urinals in Taiwan… the profound thoughts of budda, or jesus, or mark twain or arnold swar-zenegger or a cartoon character or a quote from some lost TV commercial… like pops ups that can not be blocked…
Today one said “In a blind world, the one-eyed man is king…” well, quite a pun there… which one-eyed man are we referring to?
Does this really make Taiwan a better place? Or people better? Do men walk out of the restroom with a new goal in life after reading these great thoughts?!!! “Yes, above the urinal today, I found my special purpose in life!!!”
And even more curious to me… do the ladies rooms have profound sayings on the back of doors for woman to ponder? Or is this great opportunity for learning and philosophy only provided to men? If so, I say… women… take a stand!!!
