Continuing my theme of recent off-topic posts, a sign in one of the staff toilets at the school where the conference I'm at is being held -



I'll let you translate ...
@Mark1966 are you 100% sure the warning sign doesn't tell you that you're not allowed to play with your willy woodpecker while sitting on the toilet :p:D

Google Translate says

standing urination is not fresh
pee splatters around
ends up on the buttocks, pants and shoe
and clatters on the ground

You are therefore urged
to sit on the toilet
There you do a leader and you do
a great pleasure

I guess they have a point here!
The wife says women’s toilets are worse than imaginable. The story’s she sometimes tells are quite disgusting if I may say so!

Karve 'A' w/ Perma-Sharp (3)
Semouge 830
Noble Otter The Noir et Vanille Soap and Splash.

Wow this is amazing set. The soap and splash performance are get. Plenty of cushion and slickness from the soap and the post shave feeling was soft and smooth. The splash had a nice alcohol hit and has left my skin feeling pretty good.

The scent strength of the soap I would say is a medium and the splash scent strength is strong.

Off the puck of the soap there's a strong black tea smell, which I actually dig. It's loses that a bit though in the lather, a strawberry scent really takes over. This is what the splash scent is like as well. An hour or so after the shave the strawberry is dominating the scent with a bit of black tea behind it.

I'll have to check out some other tea scents now

Steak Tartare and Belgian Frittes with homemade mayonnaise - now that's a meal!
And a sneaky glass of red to wash it down.
