While I have long been fascinated by the scrawl and random postings in bathrooms, this may be the one that truly kicked it all off.

I am not one to pick on anyone’s use of the English language, at least not when it’s their second language, but this sign was an instant classic and amused us every time we entered the bathroom.

Our family spent Christmas in Palm Desert and since Coachella wasn’t going on we figured we would check out Joshua Tree National Park, little did I know I was going to encounter this government contribution to the site.

Not all entries can be politically correct and this one sure as hell isn’t. For those needing a little help with the inscription, it reads:

Insert Baby Here For Refund

Very classy, I know, but thing that struck me more than anything else was the fact that this was not merely written on the condom dispensing machine but someone had taken the time and considerable effort to etch it into the metal of the machine, presumably with a key or a knife.

PS I had to do a little photoshopping to make this more legible than my handy iPhone camera allowed.
