National Poo Museum

The UK will soon open a "National Poo Museum" on the Isle of Wight. It will "celebrate poo." Says a spokeswoman, "The National Poo Museum is set to be the place to immerse oneself in the wonder of excrement while finding out lots of extraordinary nuggets of information about all things poo-y."

Unexpected

It seems that BK's Halloween Whopper has an interesting side effect. It goes in with a black bun but it comes out green. Not just green, but GREEN!! If you are interested in how green there is a picture at the link if you scroll down and click on it.

Father Pierre Monastery Herbs

image

Original ad.

I wish I could find a picture on the internet of the packaging for this product. Or learn who the legendary Father Pierre was. Alas, even the mighty Web does not have the answer to everything.

But I did find out the ingredients.

As to the recipe's effectiveness, I cannot attest.

Apparently, this current-day Russian product also known as "Monastery Herbs" has a different composition.

image

"Ingredients: rose hips, currant leaves, birch leaves, roots and rhizomes Elecampane, grass oregano herb St. John's wort, willow (willow-herb)."

Russian page.

Stop And Think

image
In the movie Jurassic Park Jeff Goldblum's character says, in conversation about the Park, "Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether they could that they never stopped to think if they should." I think that quote is very apropos to a recent Japanese culinary accomplishment. Cheesecake made using bacteria found in gorilla feces.

One In The Hole

image
A Norwegian golf course has been the victim of a perverse kind of vandalism repeatedly since 2005. Someone is sneaking on the golf course at night and defecating in the golf holes. The groundskeeper claims the vandal is likely a man due to the size of the...droppings. Security lights were erected to catch the offender, only to be disabled by him. So, 10 years later, this nasty person is still using the course holes as his personal potty much to the dismay of the grounds staff.

Pee .. Beer .. Recycle

imageimage

A company is now making Beer from urine and other sewage waste water. I think this would be good for the space station as they do something similar but only get back the water.

John Deere Manure Spreader



Eeyeuw! Thank god I am not a farmer, driving one of those manure plows. On the other hand, that manure spreader is pretty awesome. More of a "manure blaster" really. I envision "borrowing" one fully loaded with the most liquid poop and driving it down Main Street to wreak smelly, smelly vengeance.

By the way: if you want to see two hundred manure spreader videos, here is a YouTube playlist.

Poop Colors

A simple website on a narrowly focused topic. I assume its creator is making money via the link-based ads running on the site.

And I see that the URL peecolors.com is available for purchase. So if anyone wants to offer poopcolors.com some competition (or imitate its money-making strategy), now's your chance!

The number 2 bus runs on number 2 so I figure that's the brown line.
