There is a nightclub in Milwaukee (the Safe House) that has a life-sized enlargement of the famous picture installed, mural-like, on the wall of the ladies' room with a fig leaf-shaped flap — which can be raised by the curious, prurient, or just-plain nosy — over the appropriate area.
What is *NOT* mentioned, however, is that lifting the flap sets off a siren and a flashing red police-car "bubble-gum machine" light in the main bar room so that when the lady exits the room, EVERYONE knows that she peeked.
