Loss of toilet humour

i was up at araps over easter and noticed (hard not to) that the dunny walls at the gums have been painted over, and years of climbing quotes and ?paraphenailia? (not sure of spelling, i know it sounds like an STD) has been lost to antiquity. i wanted to start a post of quotes (sorry neil), but
!!ONLY!!
for the messages people can remember from those toilets. don't hesitate to tell me to get stuffed, it was just an idea. i just thought it is a shame that they got painted over...

Alas another piece of climbing history gone. Oh well time to start again. I'm sure some of the old classics will be reinstated post haste

I'll start you off if you like

"Climb climb as fast as you can,
You can't catch me I'm Wolfgang"

"When in doubt run it out, When in fear place more gear"

"There are many old climbers, and there are many bold climbers, but there are no old bold climbers"

I thought most of the stuff written in those dunnies was a load of shite

" 'one out of ten people admit to having hemeroids pain.' does that mean the other 9 are lying?"

"300 feet of muck. You yangs rule!"

if your not living life on the edge, your taking up to much space

And the older I get, the more space I take up.

A couple of weeks ago I happened to see this very same rhyme on the inside of a public toilet door in the Peak District. It immediately made me think of the loos at Arapiles!
I think some other stuff mentioned in this thread dated back to when I was still going out there as well.

Good news for those who appreciate toilet humour: I found some old photos of the gems and am putting them online, which means my flickr account is useful again after my camera died. I've got about 30 and will put them up as I get them processed. God they're funny! Makes me shart just thinking about them.

I have to say the quality of the graffiti from the composting toilets was shit-house. The fact that they were painted over was no loss whatsoever.

I'll hunt through the archives and type up some of the toilet grafitti that appeared in the orginal toilet block some 12-15 years ago. Hopefully we'll see a return to some more inspired work in future years.
