That number two hoodoo that you do so well

Dog poop is serious business. When it's not properly disposed of, it can be a significant pollutant, contaminating groundwater and streams. Some cities are taking action, but few are willing, able or ingenious to go as far as Petah Tikva, Israel, which is building its own dog-poop DNA database with the intention of rewarding conscientious pooper-scoopers and punishing scatological scofflaws.

"the first person in America to huff his own shit"

The lengths some people will go to get high. Jenkem or jekem is a drug made from raw human sewage, apparently most prevalent in Africa. (Mildly NSFW.)

"What would appear to be a mere biological necessity creates a scandal"

FantasticFecalFind

Thanks to global warming we are in deep shit. Biologist Gerry Kuzyk was hiking with his wife in the remote reaches of the Yukon when he caught the putrid scent of caribou dung wafting through the chill air. Then he saw it -- the biggest pile of animal droppings he had ever seen, 8 feet high and stretching over a half-mile of mountainside.

Experiences on the Toilet

Experiences on the Toilet This is one of the craziest and most cringeworthy sites I've ever been to. It's a site jam packed with postings from people detailing particular 'movements' they've had.. episodes of blocking toilets with 'whoppers' and 'interesting' odors they've experienced. Yes, it's the ultimate guide to everyone's experiences in taking a dump.

Finally, a site

Finally, a site that lets you send dog shit anonymously to anyone in the world, wrapped up in elegant packaging with a nice label affixed to it with the greeting of your choice. I'll be ordering the PooPoo Grande.
