I received an email from film-maker Karina Mangu-Ward. I'd say what she's asking for is right up our brown alley: Hey there! As you may know, I’m working on a documentary project called Flush about poop culture in America. I’m reaching out to you now because I need your help connecting with people...

This afternoon I answered an email from a young man who was worried to death about the amount of rectal bleeding he was experiencing over the course of this last week. Why people write to us about such potentially serious issues used to confuse me. I would not write to a poop humor site about...

In days of old when we traveled across the river and through the woods heading for grandma's house, it was no really big deal when we felt those internal rumblings that signaled a poop was eminent.

When Steve Jobs died, many people heralded him during his passing in an almost reverent way, and yet during his life he did a few things that weren't what I would call cool. (I understand why outsourcing happens, but I do not understand why any company president would ignore that employees from...

I entered class, sat at a desk, and put my face down into the text book. The instructor waited in cross-legged position on the desk at the front of the room, sporting his sandaled and socked feet, and proudly drinking Seattle coffee. This was the usual scene. Then the instructor began his...

Editor’s note: This topic may have already been addressed on the site, but it’s never a bad thing to revisit important poop history. Besides, I could not imaging not sharing this article with all of you seeing as it contains the phrase ‘royal dumplings’. Who actually invented the flush...

As hundreds of millions of children across the world head back to school this fall and you prepare your back-to-school stories, something critical will be missing for more than half of those children.

"Pro-Log" Poop is a fertile field for academic research and exploration. Strikingly little non-medical research has been done on the subject given the fact that every human being in every culture across all time has pooped.
