Think radio spots too!

Can we be entertaining about it?

But seriously. Write some, record em or whatever, and we can put em on the air. Really.

Radio Free BM & BMIR no doubt would be tickled to play pottie spots. They have a significant selection that they air, but if you present them with yours, I'm sure they could be convinced to air it. Ash of RFBM has been with the Pottie Project since the beginning and made about a dozen last couple years.

RockDad? I honestly don't care if this nice lady needs a whoopie-wipe to keep her clean and fresh smelling. I just don't want her to put the baby-wipes in the john. Nice start though. More late night phone sessions, eh?

UD-I've never tried, but I believe Robbidobbs has said that if you burn while damp they go up nicely because of the alcohal. (I also wonder if they should burn, being cotton rather than pulp. But then good paper is cotton rather than pulp. Now, I'm wondering why no-one's marketed organic hemp baby wipes. I better go take my meds...)

I imagine that it wouldn’t like baby wipes much and would tell you so in a big mean voice. But every time you fed it only what it wanted, I just know that after you stand up, it would wag it's tongue, lick it's white porcelain lips and go:

"MMMMM Num Num Num Num!!!!"

I’d have to keep going back to the pottie just to see that.

Which reminds me of the story from when I worked in the machine shop and my boss' son ate a whole pod of Datura seeds. Effects lasted for almost a week on and off, so he said. One of the things that came out of that expierience for him was the kitchen table turning into the Rolling Stones lips, which then proceeded to bite his arms off at the elbows, chew on 'em, spit 'em back at him, and then laugh a real deep laugh.

Lots of good stories from working at that place...

Ok, I've made the signs, and lifted some choice verbage from the above submissions. I'm strapped for space, so no cites, but you'll know your words when you see them.
Thank you everyone!

Wow, this got buried.
I just finished the last of the t-shirts.
They say: THANK YOU FOR GIVING A SHIT

To get one, just come along with me for 4 hours and talk shit.
And if you have a megaphone fetish, I can supply.
I'll be in my blanket fort until further notice.

Uhh ... okay ... So I guess you fundamentally hate the design and all things about it. Thanks for playing.
robbidobbs wrote:2. What are the "10 principles"?
You're joking, right? It is the 10 Principles that define the event. Basically it's the only piece of dogma on the Burning Man website. From the What Is Burning Man? page, there's a link on the right to "Guiding Principles". The 10 Principles define the fundamental behavior of participation, although nobody gets quizzed on them as a prerequisite for attendance.
robbidobbs wrote:3. a Burner practices excremental correctness. Spectators fuck up the johns.
Employees of Johnny on the Spot make no such distinction. To them and anybody else in the world, there is no difference between Burners and Spectators. As much as it would be easy to play "Us-vs.-Them", blaming the "Them" for all the problems, it's a red herring. The first of the 10 Principles is "Radical Inclusion" meaning that there are no prerequisites to attend, so not only do outsiders lump the whole lot into the "Burner" category, they are actually correct to do so.

You're joking, right?
I think her point is that the target audience might ask that very question. Being that you didn't get that, I have to wonder, what is the purpose of your sign? If it's a joke and reminder to people who already know they shouldn't put stuff down, the it's good, but if it's to educate new people who do not know better, they'll likely get lost on step number 1 and 2 and not really understand the point of the sign. Sure, we all get it, but I'm sure we all know not to put junk down the potties and if we're doing it anyway, a sign telling us "no no, shame shame", still isn't going to make us behave.

So yes it's a funny sign.

But it may not be a great sign to educate people who do not already know better.

Here are a few for fun.

Have a good time but remember to
Potty Responsibly!

Squatty on the potty is terribly naughty
show the seat some love, give it all you gotty.

Only teases hover,
make the seat your lover

Shit on the seat is rarely sweet,
plant your cheeks for a comfy treat

The toilet seat has a secret to tell you
but you gotta sit on it to hear it.
(this one's for the really high)

Gray water makes the Porta-Potties sad.

Baby wipes clog the pipes!

Hey Moron! Don't shit on the seat!
(p.s. You're not really a moron.)

What do spaceships and sissies have in common?
They both hover. Don't be a spaceship. Sissy.

Thanks LittleMonkey.
These are really cute, pertinent, and short enough to include as signs.

As a reminder to all, unless you are creating the signs yourself, and puting them up yourself as your art, the verbage must be able to fit on an 8.5" x 5.5" sheet at 36 point type. This limits the number of words.
