Do Bears Shit In The Woods?



The catch-phrase "do bears shit in the woods" is used to indicate that the rhetorical answer to an earlier question was "yes".

By that logic, "do humans shit in the street" by right would have been the opposite rhetorical "no".

Until today.

This one above is the ultimate.

Then again, in their defense (not that I condone shitting in the street), finding a toilet in Hong Kong can sometimes be somewhat challenging.

Go to any store and chances are, you will get a blank stare and answer that they do not have a toilet in their premises. It is almost as if the entire street heads down to the McDonald's nearby for their No. 1s and 2s.

The bigger malls are better but locating the toilets can also be tricky. Some malls, and I say in jest, hide the signs pointing to the toilets. You need a very sharp eye to spot them.

Afternote: After reading Arrenn's comments, I realised that I need to explain the context of which this video was taken.

Hong Kong folks have been complaining about Taobaolanders behaving badly when in Hong Kong.

Tension reached a boil-over when a group of Hong Kong folks took up a newspaper full-page colour ad labeling them as locusts.

Arrenn: I amended the entry. You need to read the afternote to get the complete picture.

Yeah, I'm aware of the current unhappiness between HKers and QQLanders, and the escalating animosity. I suppose this clip is one of the many incidents of shitty QQLand behaviour (pun oh so intended). Even then, my point abt how urgent nature's calls sometimes are still stands... but it really should be the rare exception rather than the rule:P

Yeah. Having been a frequent traveller to HKG, it is true that toilets are hard to locate.

Still, crapping on the streets in full view of the public is just too much to take.
