I am designing a bathroom for a 1950's style diner. I would like a
list of 1950's slang and jokes to write on the wall. Decoration ideas
will be a plus!

P.S.: I need this this week!

It seems my question wasn't clear, I'm only gettign sarcasm and vulgar joke!

I am looking for slang phrases from the fifties that I can use in a
50s Diner-like restaurant, that are acceptable for yougnsters,
families and business men eating there.

Also, if you can find any slang that is special for Food/Diners and/or
WCs it would be great.
There is no answer at this time.

Back then they were still drawing "Kilroy was here".

I would be worried that your decoration might invite 21st century grafitti.

Do yourself a favor and put plexiglass over your walls after you
"decorate" them or you might end up with a lot of unwanted additions
such as, "For a good time call 555-5555"

In those days, ice cream vendors in the UK used to patrol the streets
sporting the sign 'Stop Me and Buy One'.

I recall seeing a contraceptive slot machine in a gent's loo on which
someone had written 'Buy Me and Stop One'.

Someone else had added 'Buy Two and be One Jump Ahead'.

And another 'This stuff tastes like chewing gum'.

I hope that these are in sufficiently bad taste for your project.

The last message was 'This chewing gum tastes awful'.

Here are two rather vulgar graffiti that I saw on the wall of a 
drive-in movie bathroom in the late 1950s:

   Here I sit
   Came to sh*t
   And only farted
                (scrawled in lipstick)
              MY BOYFRIEND IS 10 INCHES

            (written beneath, in eyebrow pencil)
