Another normal day in Mainland China: a Chinese man poops in subway. This image is not from today but it could. A Chinese proverb says: “If you need to do it, don’t wait, just do it now.”
This proverb means to do things now and not postpone them. Chinese apply the proverb well by pooping as soon as they need to. You can notice on the picture that the man was cautious because he brought his own toilet paper: he knew it could happen at any time: on the street, at the supermarket, in an elevator, in a restaurant…
Peanuts Daily met Terry Ling-tao, a regular pooper:
I always bring toilet paper with me, you never know when the envy will kick in. I’ve learnt that keeping it inside is unhealthy. I know many people don’t accept it, especially those bloody foreigners. This is not my fault if they are non-healthy people. If they are not happy with Chinese culture, they can go back to their countries.
Will this healthy Chinese culture be exported someday? We would love to see the reactions of American citizens seeing a Chinese pooping in Times Square, or in France while doing the line-up for the Eiffel Tower.
