Well, you've got to admit, those mini-skirted silhouettes are so sexy they might make it, um, difficult for any men passing by to use the restroom, if you know what I mean.  BounceGiggle BounceGiggle BounceGiggle

Hopefully, that is an April Fool's Day gag that got left up too long. Or are South Africans even more sexually repressed than Americans?

I love the part about requiring people to install the new, approved ladies' signages "as a matter of urgency".

Just checked the link, and it's just a creative advertising campaign for Mrs. Ball's Chutney. Apparently, the point was to prove that you don't change things needlessly. Mrs. Ball's chutney is perfect the way it is, just like South African restroom signs, or something like that. Not sure if the analogy really works, but I see where they're going with it.

Their next campaign should be to put a set of balls on the male signs. It could be the Mrs. Ball's "We miss his balls" campaign.

That's exactly what it is, Andy ~ there's so much change going on in SA that it's nice to know that some things stay the same.  TeddyR

Just BTW ~ "mrs Balls' Chutney" is great to eat but one does require a certain amount of cojones to eat it as the chutney is  hot hot hot

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
