scatological specialists?

was on the road just now and saw this huge green signboard fronting a major road in Beijing: XXX Hospital for Anus and Intestine Disease.

wooooah! I think that they meant GI tract specialist (or piles, maybe?) from the chinese name: 肛肠病医院. the perils of direct translation!

maybe it's NOT a good place to open a kway chap stall! actually there's a Beijing dish that's like kway chap, called "lu chu" meaning stewed, but tastes totally different, even though largely same ingredients of innards and intestines.
