Thank you. (countdown - 4!)

Western toilets rather display something like
"This is a water-free toilet. You may leave after use".

But basically the original is correct and so much more straight to the point.

By the way, in a country with more than 100.000 public toilets and an ever increasing freshwater shortage, watersaving technology like this actually makes a lot of sense.

Found at the Shenyang Botanical Garden 沈阳植物园 in Liaoning 辽宁 Province. Thanks, Ulli!

I noticed that people, who don't know much about Enligsh, sound rude when they speak English, like in this case, it is not fundamentally wrong saying "pissing or shitting", like you said, it's more straightforward. It doesn't mean they mean to be rude or uncivilized, it's just they don't have enough knowledge to manipulate a second language.
I like all your collections of Chinglish photos. Hilarious. :)
