  • Haha! “These devious dollops of defecation pack a pungent punch that could make an onion cry”, “mounds of malicious manure”, “clandestine nocturnal deposits-o-dung” . . .

    Somehow I here those alliterative sentences read in Jim Dale’s (Pushing Daisies narrator) voice. :-D

  • Ask Dr. Stool your poop questions!

    January 2, 2010

  • An excellent use of the scale.

    June 24, 2009

  • I guess it's type 0, chained_bear.

    January 2, 2009

  • Do you think a tappen is a Type 1 on this scale? *ponders*
    *gets grossed out and stops pondering*

  • While I understand and respect your position, yarb, this has to be one of my favorite Wordie pages ever. Look at this discussion!! Look at the links!

    I'll never read the word salsiccia in the same way again.

  • I'll be glad to see this slip off the bottom of the "most wordied" list...

  • I think it's entirely possible people can learn to do an everyday task wrong. People learn bad eating, bad breathing, bad sleeping, etc. Beyond that, the whole shitting-in-water, sewage system only makes sense to me in a large-scale, urban context. Nature indicates people were meant to be shitting in holes in the woods, or with an outhouse.

  • I don't know anybody who does it with a foot rest. Could so many of us be doing it all wrong?

    June 3, 2008

  • Love the Official Instructions & the Italian & French versions. What an educational resource Wordie is! I feel so much more knowledgeable in the bathroom now.
    Why was this such a neglected subject for so many of us? Knowledge definitely can set you free!

  • The Italian one has a very useful time scale on the left.

    June 3, 2008

  • Italian version.

  • After a second look, I now understand why that thing under his feet (foot?) is labeled "foot rest" and not, you know, stool...

    June 3, 2008

  • Official Instructions

    June 3, 2008

  • I suffered a spate of sixes after I came back from Peru last year. Turned out to be quite a rare bacterium.

    June 3, 2008

  • No, no. Of course not, kewpid.

    June 2, 2008

  • Mine do not smell reesetee.

    June 2, 2008

  • selles! palindromic shit!

    June 2, 2008

  • Here's a nice version in French, palooka.

    June 2, 2008

  • *thanks God this isn't Smellie*

    "Oh, Looord, Kum bay ahhhhh!"

    June 1, 2008

  • I wonder if there's an odour scale as well.

    June 1, 2008

  • *sings Kum Ba Yah*

    June 1, 2008

  • *SNORT!*

  • This is the beauty of Wordie: Our opinions can clash over the relative values of 2's, 3's & 4's & we can still remain friends. *wipes a tear from the corner of his eye*

    May 31, 2008

  • I hate Type 4's. Sorry, I don't care if they're healthy.

    And kewpid, thanks for making me laugh out loud at work. :)

  • I'm with Palooka. There's something particularly satisfying about a 2–3. And when a cup of tea doesn't do it, a good dump solves everything.

  • I knew there was a reason why I didn't become a physician. Add to that all the hassles of dealing with HMO's - not a fun occupation.

  • "The Bristol Stool Form Scale or Bristol Stool Chart is a seven group classification of the form that appears upon defecation of human feces. It was developed by Dr. K. Hering at the University of Bristol and was first published in the British Medical Journal in 1990. The form of the stool depends on the time it spends in the colon. Although not an exact science, the scale is used to help a physician recognize stool patterns for the purpose of diagnosiing digestive conditions."

    P.S. Their version of the chart has a wider range of colours :-)

  • I like the descriptive term 'fluffy pieces'. Is the pillow-stuffing industry listening?

    May 30, 2008

  • Upon reflection rocks, you're right. A four does appear more streamlined, less fuss & muss. I think a four would bring a smile to my face unlike the horrific, panicky feeling I'd get after a 7 or a 1. I've had my share of sevens, but thankfully no ones.
    Does this chart come in larger sizes?

  • *Laughing* Palooka, while you might prefer a two or a three, I believe that a four is what we are supposed to aspire to. A sign of your good health, my friend.

    May 30, 2008

  • Palookaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!

    May 30, 2008

  • *stunned*

    May 30, 2008

  • My system has been favoring 4's & 5's lately, though I really prefer a nice big 2 or 3, especially when they come out fast & clean - those are certainly the golden moments on the toilet.
