Hang ’em high

Found (and photographed) at a local rest area along a bikeway…  Although the sentiment is a bit on the creepy side, gotta love the ability to jack the purpose of a facility through the removal of just one letter…

  1. They are called Baby Changing in the UK. No explanation. Don’t like your baby? Come on in, and get a change – you can get someone else’s cuter, cleaner, quiter baby.

    Whatever they are called, ever wonder why these stations are always in women’s loos? Whenever I see a men’s bathroom with a baby station sign, I take a photo. It is such a rarity!

  2. wanderer – i put mine in those drawstring-dressing gown things. you can get a lot of poo in there before they need to be changed.

    DP – Standard answer (you should know by now): “Of course it’s just you. D’uh”… Although one of my kids was confused at the ‘wheel chair accessible’ signs as a kid – thought the graphic just meant ‘potty’.

    Bb – should keep them outside of restaurants, movie theaters, strip clubs – any establishment where the patrons would be annoyed by crying children.

    shefaly – there’s been some progress in the States with the ‘baby changing’ rigs in mens rooms. or so i’m told….

    That reminds of some stand up’s schtick about pampers – changes them once a week cuz the box says they’re good for 35 pounds.

    Yep, in Canada too. I’ve even observed them in use by dads a time or two. Then, of course, there are the “family” restrooms/washrooms.

    Great pic, DF. I always find it amusing when signs are subtly changed from the banal to the hilarious.

  4. I think the ones in IKEA are separate from the toilets, so could be used by either women or men.

    Meanwhile, agree with Shefaly that ‘baby changing station’ is also funny, though not as darkly funny as ‘baby hanging station’.

  5. Rob – i wasn’t winning any parenting awards when they were babies, either!

    az – the ‘unisex’ family potty rooms are brilliant – that way, if you’re toting a squabbing baby and a toddler, you can contain the mobile one while managing the back end processing on the other one.

    uw – they can sure odor-up an elevator! i’m pretty sure that babies are behind the random fluctuations in oil prices as well… it’s a mini-conspiracy.

    MdW – i tend to run away when they’re in full tantrum… unless i’m on an airplane. then i just feel really bad for the parent.

    ~m – tee hee! not as much fun as a balcony…
