That’s what it says 😉 … Toilet Paper won’t run out!
Here at ‘The Daily Poo!‘ we’ve got to know quite a few of the leading writers and commentators on matters of loos (toilets) and no. 2s (poops)… In light of the concerns we’ve been highlighting about not panic buying toilet paper in our weekly posts.
Here’s a great article by Ronald H. Blumer, author of ‘Wiped – The Curious History of Toilet Paper‘ writing for The Washington Post. His book (do look him up) was published by MiddleMarch Media Press back in 2013 and is interwoven with historical facts, heaps of information and humour.
As Mark at ‘The Daily Poo!‘ is also a children’s author on the topics of toilet paper and poop he writes to engage, educate and entertain on the subject, which, as with the author of ‘Wiped’, is close to his heart… to read the full article by RB about TP in The WP click here.
We’re back for this week’s line up on what’s going down in the world of toilets and poop. Today’s articles and insights yet again uncover the best of what’s out there – but we don’t just stay on top of what’s at the bottom, we also research and educate on all you need to know, before you go! So, let’s look at what’s going on in the john, in this weeks edition of, ‘The Daily Poo!’ We’ll start with the nice stuff, then it may get a bit shittier…
On the topic of ideas for a ‘Beautiful Bathroom‘ did you know that wicker baskets are another aesthetically pleasing alternative to the trad loo roll holders… look at Wayfair for inspiration! Oh, and by the way – if our patents pending get adopted, then forget ‘stand alone’ colon straighteners, these will be built in to your toilets – as a standard chrome/colour coordinated fitting to blend in to your chosen designs.
On a more charitable note, Andrex has teamed up with WaterAid on an increasingly popular cause, ‘Toilets Change Lives.’ These positive links between manufacturers and the likes of UNICEF, the UN, WaterAid and The World Toilet Organisation are beginning to help with sanitation in poorer areas of the world, where 2 billion people have little of no access to basic sanitation!
Turning swiftly to a new trend… check out the new fad for doing Selfie Moon Pics using the cardboard centres of toilet rolls… article by Zaini Majeed for Republic tv.
The next article has a great interview from down under, no… not the nether regions – the other down unders, but NZ not Australia… Weight Loss and other benefits of popping poop pills. Then, shower habits that get increasingly more gross as you read on… We’d suggest you don’t read this ’til after midday!
Are you still here… ? Well, this is, ‘The Daily Poo!’ so it’s gonna be shitty sometimes! Okay next article…
The Poop Project takes their one-man show back on the road, ‘How the Potty Trained Us‘ stimulating conversation about sustainability and stools. It’s not just the big guys that are making a difference, Mr. Toilet andThe Poop Project are two great examples of the current disrupters!
That’s a wrap, except for the Poop Map… strange though it may seem, or not, there’s an app for crap – which has been gaining popularity. For those people who love to know where, when and under what circumstances their friends poop, this app is for you. Let’s hope it has a greater purpose for the future, I can think of one if they’d like to get in touch! Delaney Halloran explains in The Spectrum. Have a great week and we’ll be back next Monday with the latest edition of, ‘The Daily Poo!‘
Welcome to this week’s edition of ‘The Daily Poo!‘ where we look at what’s going on in the world of loos & no. 2s, health issues, Valentine Gifts, challenges around the world, inventions, fascinating facts and quite a lot of silliness too. Let’s start with the perfect Valentine gift, as Feb 14th is fast approaching. There’s a company called ‘TUSHY‘ who have managed, amongst other things, to make a posh version of the ‘squattypottyTM’ and, although we have patents pending out there for an alternative – the TUSHY Ottoman may just be the most beautiful option for straightening your colons, or that of the one(s) you love… Added to which, their core product is, as their name suggests, an attachable bidet to wash your tush. Plus they have more eco-friendly and beautifully designed products in their range too, take a look at the website and discover them all! Another great gift idea is that amazing Poo-Pourritried and tested by us here at ‘The Daily Poo!‘ for the home, small enough to carry around and it really works. Another of our favourites is the ‘Who Gives a Crap‘ toilet paper range, and ‘Aesop Post-Poo Drops.’ If you love someone then surely you must give a crap and all of the above could just show your true affections.
A few other fascinating articles, stay on track with our guide to the history of the toilet, how they work and more abstract news such as why talking about cow poop has become an art form… here they are:
As the Science Museum continues its successful ‘It takes Guts‘ a gross, squirm-inducing show about the workings of the human digestive system, Farmers Weekly points out the effect that talking about cow poo has on unruly children. Teachers, catch the full YouTube of ‘It Takes Guts’ here.
That’s it for now. We’ll be back with more of ‘The Daily Poo!‘ next week…
