Is the writer asking us to delete the word "toilettes"? And if we do, will the toilettes then cease to exist? : Ferney-Voltaire, FR

We went walking through the municipal park in Ferney the other day and the combination of stonework, graffiti, light, and shadows on the side of the public toilet struck me. Anyone who speaks French know what the graffiti says? I have no clue. I thought it spelled "caze", but maybe it's "cage"? (Note to the Ferney Department of Public Works: the toilet needs to be cleaned. Badly. And what's up with the French not leaving toilet seats on their public toilets? I suppose I shouldn't rant too much, though. At least this public toilet had a real toilet and was not a Turkish toilet.)

Apparently, this was a toilette and is no longer. They crossed it out. Dang graffiti. hope Virginia doesn't see it.

Crossing out the toilettes is confusing. The way it's in the stone work, it was meant to be like that. Strange.

Maybe it's the word "care?" Hm. Probably not.

Turkish toilets...UGH!
