Bathroom Prank

September 8th, 2007


1. Download and open this PDF file.
2. Buy a pack of 3 1/3″ x 4″ white inkjet mailing labels. (About US$10 for 150 at any office supply store).
3. Print the PDF file on the labels.
4. Apply labels in public restrooms.

Doing this early and often will bring you good luck.

Want to alter it? Here’s the original Word template file.

In the interests of science, I’ve discovered that there are others who put stickers up in bathrooms suggesting you are being watched, including a Flickr user who puts labels of “THIS IS A CAMERA” on bathroom fittings.

    ‘this prank wont work in Singapore, guess why’

    it says ‘us dept. of the interior’, that’s why it won’t work.
