“I went to a Roman bathroom on the 6th floor. Yes, it was the VI P room”

A “VIP Room” is for Very Important Persons. A joke was posted on Reddit—Dadjokes,/a> on October 15, 2020:
     
“I went to a Roman bathroom on the 6th floor. Yes, it was the VI P room.”
   
“VI” in Roman numerals is the number six. “P” is pronounced “pee.”
     
Other Roman numerals jokes include
“I failed my math exam. I couldn’t write 1, 1000, 51, 6, and 500 as Roman numerals. IM LIVID,” “I, for one, like Roman numerals,” “I struggle with Roman numerals until I get to 159. Then it just CLIX,” “Roman numerals to be phased out—not on my watch,” “The cost of joining the Roman Numeral Society was exactly $499. I didn’t have ID” and “The Roman numerals for forty (40) are XL” (i.e., weight gain at 40 makes one Xtra Large),
