Great Answers!

Bravo to all of you for playing along; I had such a great time reading your guesses. Thanks for the fun! Here is the rest of the story...

#1. Me: "That's cool...wonder what that is?", as I take a picture. Willi knew what it was. Do you?

Maybe if there was a bike hooked up to this I would have caught on a little more quickly. Probably not. Then of course I got close enough to read the sign. Enough said about that.

#2. This had a life of it's own, and some pretty powerful sound effects. Have you
seen heard this before? I hadn't.

I know bathroom humor is really not politically correct. Butt, I had neither seen nor heard "chrome push button dual flush technology". Our fixtures here are over 50 years old, and original. I really do need to get out more often. Although I managed to surmise the intended use, I had no idea that the force and sound would resemble a rocket launch. Willi's reaction was "3... 2... 1... FIRE IN THE HOLE"!

#3. This was pretty cool...but I bet it's not what you think!
Give it a guess...

These wonderful characters are actually bourbon bottles and were part of an exhibition at Louisville Stoneware coinciding with a conference of the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts. No wonder they use the acronym NCECA.

They also had a companion exhibit of shot glasses called "By the Ounce". Here was Willi's favorite.

#4. Sounds like a scary place, but what the heck is a fallover?
And if you are not responsible, who is?

Ah, Debi you sly one. You Googled! Me too - as soon as we got home; the curiosity was killing me. You are is as sign on the wall outside the garage door of The Fox Den, Louisville's first and only drive-thru biker bar! I believe a fallover would be what happens when your bike tips over. I was nowhere near there when that happened.

Thanks for the answers. I never would have figured out those names. After the names are given of course they take on meaning.

Very interesting. I didn't guess any of them and I've even seen a toilet like that before.

Cool...I never would have guessed number 3. I wonder if anyone drinks the booze in those special issue bottles. My parents had a bottle of Jim Beam that looked like a train.

What neat things! I knew what the commode was and that is about it. I am back from my blogging vacation and I have a new home. Be sure to start visiting with me again!

After reading your previous post, the bike rack was in one of my dreams. Buddy was crawling through it saying, "Whoosh through the tunnel." :-)

That sign reminds me of one Hubby and I saw at a biker bar in Sturgis, SD.

I like the bourbon bottle that looks like Medusa.

Hey, wait until you see those new fangled potties that flush all by themselves!

What a great bunch of weird and wonderful photos. I much prefer the "fire in the hole" flushers rather than the motion activated ones that I am always paranoid of not actually flushing so I always go back to check.
