Coming to a mall near you?

Compliments of our friends in the UK and their obsession with being politically correct and culturally balanced.

Squat toilets in Rochdale shopping centre

Special squatting toilets have been installed in a Greater Manchester shopping centre after its bosses went on a cultural awareness course.

Rochdale Exchange Centre has introduced the "holes in the ground" otherwise known as Nile pans. Ghulham Rasul Shazhad, who gave the course, said there was a large Muslim Asian community in Rochdale who preferred to use the squat toilet.

Two of the 14 toilets have been converted to nile pans.
Mr Shazhad said: "I identified a need in the community as there were a lot of empty water bottles found by the Western public toilets in Rochdale.

"In the Muslim culture we prefer to use water after relieving ourselves which is used with the squat style toilets.
"In local mosques there are usually six or seven nile pans alongside just one or two Western toilets.

"When I explained this to shopping centre bosses on my cultural course we thought it would be a good idea to introduce these in Rochdale." long before we begin to see these in shopping malls around America? I'll bet our man already has NASA working on it.
