That's UNtertainment

The mission of National Poo Museum on the Isle of Wight is "to lift the lid on the secret world of poo - to examine our relationship with it and to change forever the way we think about this amazing substance." Northern Italy's Shit Museum uses cow poop to generate electricity and heat. Yokohama's Unko Museum, however, is about adorable poo.

You left out Poopoo Land in Seoul.

Holy crap, there's also a toilet museum in the exurbs of Seoul. I hadn't known about that one.

I don't know what's better: The building shaped like a toilet, or the bronze statuary of poop postures.

A museum in England with not a single reference to Winnie the Poo(h)?

tracks played by a poo jukebox

Is this where I leave a scat-singing joke? Asking for a friend.

The Unko Museum reminds me that until iOS 10.2, the Pile of Poo and Soft Ice Cream emoji used identical swirls.

Life imitates art, it seems. Brings to mind one of my favorite books that I've shared with the kid, Terry Pratchett's "The World of Poo", which is about a kid in Discworld who starts his own poo museum.

Why is all that cute poo, and the poop emoji, shaped like an ice cream swirl instead of a log of some kind? Is this question answered at one of the museums described?

Your poop doesn't come out like an ice cream swirl? You might want to check with a gastroenterologist.

Nice try, Johnny, but I've consulted the Bristol Chart just like the rest of you.

Your poop doesn't come out like an ice cream swirl?

This can be simply remedied by attaching a powerful turntable mechanism to your toilet seat.

If you keep doing this, Mr. Wallflower, there will be nothing left when POOP MONTH returns. It’s like the fable of of the ant and the dung beetle.

I admire Genji's optimism that humanity might stop producing crap to post online.

When POOP MONTH happens, I want it to be the best POOP MONTH possible, not just hasty FPPs made up of whatever crap is laying around. Plus, an 11 month “defication vacation” helps clear the palate...as it were.
