In the interest of RightPundits long history of reporting on toilets worldwide, I bring this post.

Leave it to those crafty Chinese to come up with what they bill as the largest public bathroom, complete with unique fixtures made to look like, among other things, alligator heads or women:

And to get those boys to wash their hands, there are fun sinks too!

BEIJING – They’re flush with pride in a southwestern Chinese city where a recently-opened porcelain palace features an Egyptian facade, soothing music and more than 1,000 toilets spread out over 32,290 square feet.

Officials in Chongqing are preparing to submit an application to Guinness World Records to have the free four-story public bathroom listed as the world’s largest, the state-run China Central Television reported Friday.

“We are spreading toilet culture. People can listen to gentle music and watch TV,” said Lu Xiaoqing, an official with the Yangrenjie, or “Foreigners Street,” tourist area where the bathroom is located. “After they use the bathroom they will be very, very happy.”

Footage aired on CCTV showed people milling about the sprawling facility and washing their hands at trough sinks. For open-aired relief, there is a cluster of stalls without a roof.

Some urinals are uniquely shaped, including ones inside open crocodile mouths and several that are topped by the bust of a woman resembling the Virgin Mary.

“Other bathrooms are all the same. This one is very special, I’ve never seen anything like it,” one visitor to the tourist area told CCTV.

There are also plans to build a supermarket nearby, which will sell toilet-related items, CCTV reported.

As you can tell, you get your nature call out in nature: much of the public bathroom is outdoors. I wonder if this is a Communist plot to see how many foreigners on “Foreigner Street” actually use these things? I wonder if Chinese citizens would get sent to the gulag (or “laogai” in Chinese) for using them, since they are not “foreigners”, and these fixtures would seem to be against China’s strict anti-decadence laws…? (note the panties recently placed on the sinks, some say to better cover up the revealing bottoms…)

So, if any of you go to China and see this place first-hand, please report on it – we at RightPundits only ascribe to the highest form of original journalism! Of course, some would say that our posts are in the toilet…..
