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."

We're talking about real poo here, right? Not sham-poo.

I'd be a little wary of a claim of 10% vs. 90% - If you are made of 1 trillion cells (just a round number) then bacteria, as one cell organism very much the same size as any other single cell, numbering 9 trillion, would cause you to burst open and slime up the place. Who's gonna clean that up?

KDP, I heard this claim a while ago and checked it out. Seemingly reliable sources agree that 90% of the cells in your body (by count, not by volume) are non-human. Apparently it's not the case that cells are all basically the same size.

Soon, the Isle of Wight will become the Isle of Brown.
The Poo Museum, not to be confused with the Pooh Museum, or the Po Museum, is at the bottom of a steep incline. The first experiment will be to see if shit rolls uphill.

I wonder if they'll sell some unusual crap in their gift shoppe.

@Dave: Would that be a single cell poosuem?

@ges, I was a little overbroad in my claim. Actually I had it wrong and you are right to point that out. One trillion cells total would mean 900 billion is the bacterial count and I believe that the remaining count of 100 billion is far too few to make up a human in all its moving and thinking glory.

It's just that there are claims that look good but are really meaningless. Like ad copy that reads "Four out of five dentists recommend ..." I'm interested in what dentist number five recommends. It may be a better product.

How corny! Is the entrance shaped like a mouth and the exit like a rectum?
