Taiwanese And Chinese Toilet Icons

I found these on a public toilet in Ping Shi, more famous for its lantern festival. It’s only a matter of time before tourists flock to see them.

I was reminded of those after a reader sent these next snapshots from a shopping mall in Shanghai. Not much chance of mistaking who goes in which door.

Who was it that said travel narrows the mind?

  1. The latter two look like a person doing chin-ups. Are you sure these aren’t segregated exercise rooms?

  2. Cool and I can see a book about toliets. In Beijing, China I saw signs by the toliets where they rated them (1 star, 2 stars, etc.).

  3. I guess we could be glad these are pretty easily identified. About 10 years ago when icons first replaced text on electronic remotes, I couldn’t figure out which button would “open” our new dvd player. Our little grandson, about 4 years old, was visiting and showed me how it worked. He said “Mema, don’t you know how to read pictures?” :-\
