Weirdest Hand Dryer Graphic Ever

I thought this was a delightfully odd graphic on the hand dryer in the bathroom of Hermann’s Jazz Club in Victoria:

Hand Dryer Graphic

The details they’ve chosen to include are so odd: the tiny buttocks below the overly-wide torso, the concavity in the upper chest, the queer position of the hand. And I especially like the stark roundness of the head, as if it could tip off and roll away at any moment.

And, because I’m an enormous nerd, the little hand dryer graphic looks like an RSS icon.

The company, Stiebel Eltron, has its roots in Germany. There’s something vaguely Euro in the design, isn’t there?

    You know, one day this whole washroom fixation of yours will become clear.

    Fascinating….

    [Actually, I am just geeky enough to believe there’s a book in there for you somewhere…]

    As I said on Flickr, these are obviously the wrong instructions, since they are intended to indicate “this is how to throw a rainbow.”
