Friday Flash..Toilet Humor

One recurring and amusing sight in Japan is the confusion in the use of the letters "b" and "v".Their pronunciation and use in spelling is often mixed up.The words "banana" and "vanilla" is one example that springs immediately to mind.
The sign above, in Nara, is another illustration of this.Obvivously its meant to show where the nearest washroom is but even then it would be incorrectly spelt.
