Everybody Poops 410 Pounds a Year: An Illustrated Bathroom Companion for Grown-Upsby Deuce Flanagan
Synopses & Reviews
ONCE UPON A TIME . . .
. . . when you were little, you learned that everyone poops. But did you ever discover how much? Well, sit down on that cold porcelain throne and get ready to laugh your butt off at the most amazing, hilarious, need-to-go facts on the one thing everyone does--but nobody talks about. Filled to the rim with piles of fascinating dirty fun, this illustrated kids' book for grown-ups answers all the questions you never thought to ask:
How do astronauts poop in space?
Where does poop go after you flush?
Why can I see the corn but not the chicken?
Can I light my poop on fire?
Who invented the first flushing toilet?
What's the poop on Michael Jackson, Elvis and John Wayne?
The average American weighs 175 pounds. But at a bit over one pound per day, every day of the year, that one person produces an annual output over twice their body weight! That lovely bit of math is merely the title of this book — the inside pages of Everybody Poops 410 Pounds a Year go even further, overflowing with amazing facts, fascinating trivia, and amusing stories. Looking as cute and cuddly as a kid's book, its pages burst with colorful illustrations, but this is adult material. The perfect addition to any bathroom, Everybody Poops 410 Pounds a Year is both decorative and an entertaining read for those critical minutes spent sitting on the throne. This cavalcade of poop trivia answers such burning questions as: "Can poop be set on fire?" and "What does whale poop look like?" It also drops a ton of trivia, like reports that John Wayne had nearly 40 pounds of unprocessed fecal material in his body when he died, cow droppings are being processed into fiberboard-like furniture, and the White House now has 35 toilets but had exactly zero when it first opened.
