Beijing Officials: Only Two Flies Allowed Per Toilet

By Robert Paul Reyes

"City officials in Beijing said they are suggesting new standards for public toilets to allow only two flies per facility.

The Beijing Municipal Commission of City Administration and Environment released new policies Monday asking workers in parks, tourist areas, transport stations, hospitals, shopping centers and supermarkets to ensure toilets have no more than two flies buzzing around and no more than two pieces of discarded trash to be picked up each half hour."



I commend the Chinese government for taking action to improve the cleanliness of China`s notoriously filthy public toilets. A tourist would be well-advised to go behind a bush rather than use a public restroom.

Only two flies per restroom seems like a sensible guideline, nobody likes to go potty with a cloud of flies buzzing around them.

Flies are attracted to crap like Oprah Winfrey is attracted to a buffet line, perhaps each person should be restricted to dumping only one piece of excrement per visit. Less crap = Less flies

Only the poor souls who give Rosie O`Donnell a Brazilian wax or a pedicure have a worse job than a Chinese restroom attendant.
