"Hundreds of pale bottoms all lined up in a row."

Apparently people in China don't like it when their bathroom habits are made fun of. A Taiwanese TV personality teased those in what we used to call Red China about public toilets, saying most don't have doors and that she saw "hundreds of pale bottoms all lined up in a row" at one public toilet. While that doesn't seem so offensive to me, I guess public pooping is a sensitive issue in China. Chinese bloggers are up in arms: the article says blogger Gu Siqing fumed "If you are still Chinese and you have any conscience, you must apologize!" Then again, I'm sure if they don't protest against it, the government would send them to Tibet or something. The Taiwanese star said she was hurt by the reaction, and that she her name was "smeared." Thankfully she did not explain what she was smeared by.

Man killed while pooping on subway tracks

A poo-operative in Nueva York sent this to me. A man was killed near the Greenpoint Ave subway station in Brooklyn while trying to relieve himself. The always sensitive NY Post called it a "toilet train." But now you know - if you are in the subway, poop while already in the car. Not on the tracks.

David Blaine poops in a tube

Read this today, David Blaine is spending a week underwater, "relieving himself" through a tube. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't like to see a skinny magician crapping in a tube underwater. But uh, good luck man.

"Corn eater sets world record at festival"

Now this is just shoddy journalism. The first thing that comes to mind is "man, I hope he has a super size toilet." That can't be fun.


At, they talk about why we can't digest the outside of corn kernels - we don't have the enzymes. The insides we can digest just fine. The band Korn, however, is digestible by only certain people - those who like bad music.

Automatic toilets in Slate

We are going highbrow today Poo-readers - Slate has an article about automatic toilets and their shortcomings. While most automatic toilets I have seen have a little button you can push in case your butt doesn't register, I'd see why that would be annoying if there was not button. (Thanks to Poo-operative "Donkey Kong" for the article).

I also like the writer's defense of floor-pedal toilets:
Put me in the camp that says there are some things you just can't put a price on. The ability to flush my own turds happens to be one of them.
I also wrote something about automatic toilets in a previous life.

"Behold the power of poop"

Looks like San Francisco is going to mine their dog parks for doggie doo doo to use for fuel. Seems kind of gross, using dog poo to power your house or whatever. But maybe like dogs' mouths being cleaner than peoples', dog poop might be cleaner than human poop.
