The Mysterious Adventure of the QR Code In The Toilet


I spotted this ‘QR Code’ stuck to the underside of a loo seat. And I thought to myself “what a peculiar, yet intriguing place to stick a QR code”. So I took a photo of it thinking that it might reveal the start of a marvelous adventure.

But now I’ve tried to decode the code using the Experimental ZXing Decoder Onilne (part of this Google Code project) it tells me that it’s not a valid code.

Can anyone put me out of my misery and decode this phantom loo-seat QR Code…
