Swansea University teaches dirty foreign students how to use the toilet

by | 10th, February 2012

STUDENTS of Swansea University – tell us how you go to the toilet? Posters are on the walls of Swansea University are advising students how to use the toilet. The University says this is not taking the rise out of students hygiene habits, but addressing cultural differences.

The BBC notes:

In some countries in South East Asia where people squat to use the toilet there are posters informing Westerners how to use them.

In parts of the Middle East where plumbing systems cannot cope there are posters informing people not to put toilet roll down the toilet but in bins.

So. No harm done, then. No racism. The posters are just there for those who don’t know the rules – Asians, Arabs and anyone on a day trip from the Valleys. As the posters also show, people who do not know how to use Swansea toilets are always black.

A university spokeswoman assures us:

“Swansea University is a multi-cultural campus community and the informational posters were produced, for use in both male and female facilities, to help address cultural differences that were unfortunately causing damage and hygiene issues. The information was produced in conjunction with the International College Wales Swansea (ICWS) and displayed in key areas around the campus. Since the inception of these posters, the situation has greatly improved in the affected areas.”

The soiled toilet paper on the floor was placed there by non-British students, like Mustapha and Samira? The footprints on the toilet seat were the result of Young Kim Park’s weak bladder? It’s not the locals socking the floor and missing the bowl. It’s them – the foreigners with their odd bottom habits.

Of course, this is all bunkum. Most British students urinate freely in the street, having first sought out a bin or car wheel arch, and nine out of ten males prefer the kitchen sink to the sink in the bathroom or shower tray. For British women it’s all about Bounty Tissue, flower pots and jeggings.
