Peeping Tom in Chinese Toilet

This handy diagram illustrates where the peeper stood and how he got there. Creative!

This is ripped off from Danwei and ranks as one of the grossest Chinese toilet stories ever (and everyone who’s been there seems to have a story).

UNBELIEVABLE in Beijing! Today’s Legal Mirror reports the following news: a man was caught peeping at a woman from the pit beneath a non-flush, ‘long drop’ public toilet!

Here are the facts: yesterday at around 11pm in the Shijingshan district, Ms. Liu went to the loo and saw the shape of a man moving underneath the poop-holes of the public toilet. After rushing out in panic, she immediately returned to the scene accompanied by a female friend and two men. After checking the women’s toilet without seeing the peeping bugger, they moved on to the men’s to find a man quietly squatting over a poop-hole. They asked him if he saw anybody leaving the toilet, and his reply was ‘走了! 走了!’ (he’s gone!). Only problem was, the squatting man had smears of crap on his clothes and filthy plastic bags wrapped around his shoes.

The guy was captured and he’s now under police custody.

You can find the story in Chinese, which is where I got the diagram.

All I want to ask the peeper is, “Was it really worth it?”

Be thankful they didn’t mention that he came out holding a knife and fork.

I’ll bet it was the same guy. There can’t really be two people on this planet who could do something that disgusting, could there?

Yes, I’m afraid there is more than one of these perverts.

There was a similar incident in the state of Indiana a few years ago where the man had crawled down into the outhouse at a state park. He was dressed in hip-waders and a raincoat, armed with a video camera.

I’m glad to see that America isn’t the only place in the world with these sicko’s.

I am a Chinese student in Beijing. It is not unbelieveable in China. Although such incident is not common, I heard of it seveval times since I was born, especially in the countryside for the toilets there are more primitive. But such occurrence is becoming less and less common just because of the development of the toilets made it difficult to do.

Wouldn’t such a peeper succumb to the effects of methane poisoning?

Unfortunately, you do get these people. Wouldn’t it be a lot less hassle and a lot cleaner just to find an applicable Internet site?

I read this before going to bed last night and actually dreamt about it believe it or not. Urrgghh.

Oh, show some mercy to this guy, he’s just too poor to afford a pinhole camera.
