Thai Rath started an online poll after MPs complained that despite a billion baht spent on a new parliamentary chamber there were no bum guns in the toilets.
One MP said this was just not Thai culture. Another was upset about having to use toilet paper to wipe his ministerial rear end.
Thai Rath said in their headline that their online poll indicated that the Thai public believed that bum guns are necessary. Though they cautioned that the full results are not yet in…
House speaker Chuan Leekpai had got the ball rolling by starting a half hour debate into complaints that the new building did not have sufficient emergency lighting, had no signage for emergency exits and had such dim lighting that the MPs were nodding off.
Then came what Thai Rath called the highlight of the debate……bum guns, or the squirters that are fitted in many toilets that are used to clean Thai rear ends.
Seri Ruam Thai MP Wirat Warotsirin complained that a billion baht had been spent yet there were no bum guns in the gents. He was embarrassed that he had to use toilet paper to clean himself up.
Niraman Suleiman of Future Forward said that bum guns were a VERY important feature of toilets in the kingdom and that bum guns were an essential part of Thai culture.
He also complained that the water pressure was different from one bowl to the next, a separate issue.
Thai Rath jumped on the story and started a poll on Facebook. It was running close but they said in their headline that Thais wanted bum guns.
Comments online in favor of the guns said that they are great for getting the main stuff off and paper should then be used for drying.
Just using paper can lead to what some cultures around the world refer to as “cling-ons” or the dreaded “skid marks” on underwear.
Others said they waste water and can make more of a mess in toilets.
Stay tuned for the official results of the poll – if Thaivisa does not start one first…..Facebook.
