capitol toilet



A Anhui winery built toilets in the style of the U.S. Capitol Building Anuhui News reported on May 12.

Sporting traditional columns, a circular dome and high windows distinct to the U.S. Capitol, the luxurious restroom takes up more than 4,000 square feet, and is only open to Golden Seed winery staff and visitors. But, any resemblance to The Hill is merely a coincidence, said brewery staff.

“We were just trying to be novel,” an employee said. “You know, to be different from others.”

D.C. replicas were once a fad in China, and this is not Fuyang’s—where the Capitol toilet is located—first government building to replicate Washington.

In 2007, a Fuyang government residence became a symbol of corruption and lavish spending when state media revealed the building’s construction cost more than $4.3 million, nearly one-third of the district’s total revenue. By comparison, the per capita income of the district’s famers was a little more than $285. A number of local officials were fired over the incident, including the party chief of the city’s Yingquan province.

Numbers on how much the Capitol Hill toilet cost were not available, according to the Washington Post.

Other Chinese buildings to copy Washington include: White House’s in Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Hunan and Jiangxi provinces. In Wuxi, Jiangsu province, the local government has built four White House-style courts.

    What kind of lie is this?

    We all in the west knows that Chinese love to pee and shit on the streets and this is fake toilet of the people to use.

    But it is true the U.S. Capitol Building is where all the shit happens and I have also pee there too.
