quicko: euphemisms

Americans don't talk about going to the, um, unmentionable room.  We use a bathroom, a restroom, a lavatory on a plane, a WC or a loo in England, the facilities, potentially a john, a little girls' room, a little boys' room or a nose powdering place, but never the crass, overt word Australians use so freely, if you know what I mean.
