Not Bilingual, Exactly

The new(-ish) waterless urinals in one of our buildings have information sheets posted on the wall at reading level. The sheet explains how these are waterless and odorless, so whatever it is you smell isn't pee.

The flyer is in English, except for one paragraph that is printed in two languages. The paragraph in question is the one with cleaning instructions. This sort of invokes some stereotypes, I think.

They installed these in one of the new campus buildings. According to the male profs, they still smell like piss.
