Reader: XX marks the spot for ladies' restrooms

If you were looking for a restaurant restroom and found one labeled "Wags," would you assume it was a ladies' room? Would it help you if you knew that the other restroom was named "Ballers"?

Those are the bathroom titles at Three Lions, but they're far from the only odd monikers.

Says nd:

I ate at a restaurant in Spain that XX and XY on the bathroom doors. My wife said some guy came waltzing into the women's room, saw my wife at the sink and goes, "damn, I never was good at biology."

What are the strangest bathroom names you've seen around town?
