This only works if you know what WC means I've often wondered what people who have no clue what it means think.

I'm not sure but I think the US may be the only country that has bath and toilet in the same room. I had never heard of the term water closet until I visited Australia about 40 years ago and I was informed that they had separate rooms.

I agree with Selvin that the uninitiated would have no clue what W.C. meant.

I think it is actually quite universal, given that it is an English saying, it does seem strange that the French would adopt it
