Everyone’s laughing at Amazon for selling a Chinese potty as kitchen and dining table decoration, or as a “traditional fruit basket”.
You really cannot make this up! And yet, people have actually used it to chill wine and serve sauce!
Chinese Potty Sold As Decoration On Amazon!
This is the infamous post on Amazon, of a Chinese potty (also known as a Tam Pui). It not only serves as a chamber pot, it can also double as a spittoon.
But only on Amazon is it being marketed and sold as a “1960s Chinese Traditional Fruit Basket” or “Chinese Antique Kitchen & Dining Table Decoration” or “Traditional Fruit Basket”.
While it may seem like a joke, this is a real posting by a seller on Amazon.
The seller claims that it is an antique Chinese traditional fruit basket of the 1960s, that is suitable to be used as ice bucket for wine, or a housewarming gift, or a decorative item for your kitchen or dining table!
Even worse – the seller wanted a princely sum of CDN$68.45 (about US$54 / RM 219) for this Chinese potty that only costs about US$4 in China!
Tam Pui : Chinese Potty Explainer
To those who are unfamiliar with the Tam Pui – this is a chamber pot, a portable toilet, a potty. Some people also use it as a spittoon. But never for food or anything nice.
Those familiar with the Tam Pui have been laughing their asses off, because this is something many Chinese families used to potty train their children in the 1960s to maybe the 90s.
The child would sit on it and do his/her business into the Tam Pui, and the parents can clean them before disposing of the waste and toilet paper / waste water.
They are still used these days as portable urinals in hostels or rented rooms without ensuite toilets, for late night convenience.
And one may be purchased as a good luck gift for a newly-wed couple – to imply that they will soon have a baby.
Please Do NOT Use Chinese Potty Like This!
Unless you want to be thought as a complete moron by any person of Chinese ethnicity, as well as many other Asians, you should NOT use the Chinese potty to chill wine, as a bread basket, or to serve soup or sauce!
