All things pooped

By Grant Jacobs 20/08/2010

While my next post lies in the wings for the weekend, right in time for Friday afternoon is the first edition of the Carnal Carnival.

Christina Pikas described the opening theme as craptacular. (In response to this I couldn’t help imagining Batman (or Robin) doing the job, standing up, then looking into the bowl exclaiming… ’Craptacular!’ Why wasn’t this in the TV series?)

The carnival already has hosts booked up for well over a year and features a different carnal theme each month.

As you’ve already guessed, the opening month’s theme is crap. The biological kind.

For those that follow science blogs, this is the reason behind all the excretory-related posts of late.

There are posts of all kinds, and many of them.

Don’t forget there is interesting science there. Being science blogging, this is a chance to look at serious science in a lighter way, rather than exercise out-right toilet humour.

Enjoy it.

Ford Prefect advised taking a towel. A toilet roll is more appropriate for this adventure.
