Picture of Double Toilets at Sochi Olympics Goes Viral
His tweeted picture instantly became a national joke.
Although toilets like that are not common in Russia, social media users posted some pictures of other toilets side by side. One said this was standard at Russian soccer stadiums.
Russians jested that the toilets in Sochi were designed for a “tandem,” the name used to describe the duo of President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. One blogger altered Rosenberg’s photo to put in a framed portrait of the two leaders above the toilets.
The Sochi organizing committee has refused to comment.
