Passive Aggressive Subway Notes

I've gotten hooked on and decided to post one of my own. Here it is:

Please Do It At Home

As any frequenter of the Tokyo subway system knows, the way the management tries to get people to behave is through some very PA notes. These notes normally include guilt-trip oriented cartoons... ie, adorable grannies looking sad because they can't sit in the Priority Seating.
This time they really outdid themselves and have made a whole series of "Do it at ..." posters, showing where you should be doing the inappropriate behavior. ..I'm slightly dissapointed there hasn't been one made of a couple making out (caption: "Do it at the Love Hotel".)

full set here!

Probably because there's no single Kanji for "Rabu Hoteru"....

ha, good point! but '店' doesn't really mean pub, it just means store.
Maybe '宿' (inn) would work.
I'll have to submit this idea to the tokyo metro manners commitee. ;)
