To bad the JANUARY post contest that involves "poop" is no longer running. You'd be the winner.

I was hoping I'd get "the story behind (wow, OP, missed the hanging curve there) it" here in the comments, but I guess it's on to the second link (really 2000 words on this?).

As a public service to those who follow:

> The poo-flipper, who requested anonymity, said over DM that, “There wasn’t a toilet around, so I said ‘I’m gonna do a poo flip, film this.’ They didn’t understand but filmed it anyway.”

NSFW? More like NSFAITRM (Not Safe For Anyone In Their Right Mind). And please replace the "KeepMeFiClassy" tag with "KeepMeFiWeird" or even "KeepMeFiWeirderThanAnyPlaceOnStevenUniverse".

There seems to be some escalation in this Week of Poo on MetaFilter. I mean, I'm enjoying it more than I should, but this cannot come out well in the end.

As I asked previously, is there a theme or plot happening here? (or odd scatalogical obsession?)

I had just watched TLC’s music video for “No Scrubs” immediately before this post. I believe this guy qualifies as a scrub.

Great, now I have the opening four notes of “No Scrubs” playing in my head with the new lyrics “A scrub is a guy who poops in the air, before he lands in the wa-terrrr”.

What I can’t stop thinking about are those first few seconds after he came up for air and realized that there was now a toilet and he was in it

If you are the sort of person who knows that you have zero interest in anything that might be called “the Poo Flip,” close your web browser now.

Oh yes, thank you for that.

A wise man once told me the key to taking a shit in the ocean is timing the waves just right so you don't get skidmarks on your back. The poo flip wins points for style, but not practicality.

Thanks to the deep ocean outfalls, it's less common these days for Sydneysiders to be swimming in human waste. Still, you might want to take a pass if anyone offers you a Bondi cigar.

Poo-Flipper and bystanders should be thankful it came out in one solid piece instead of a more mushy/watery consistency.

My mind kept returning to this during the (kind of boring) sermon at church today. I mean, for what it was, it was perfectly executed. If I tried, poop would be all over the dock thing and/or my legs, and the jump would be a pathetic hop where I'd barely clear the ledge.

did anybody find disturbing how--how shall I say--uninterrupted the poo was? Like, in addition to all the other wonders of this, does that guy just have a colon of steel?
posted by angrycat at 1:44 PM on February 4 [1 favorite]


that's not rare, if you eat enough fiber and protein you could have a nice long uninterrupted poo too. although they usually break off near the anus as the part that hits the toiletbowl starts curling.
posted by numaner at 4:07 PM on February 4


I remember someone on Mefi used the term, "cobra", for when an exemplary poo was done; all coiled and deadly. I am not sure where I am going with this but now I look at the Australians surrounding me and wonder if giant snakes will emerge...

It should be noted that we've always been more about your brown snakes than your cobras.
