Now THAT is an example of good colon health.

I... I think. Can't really vouch for the validity, but I can vouch for the fact that whoever's doing that is crazy.

Apparently fake, according to both Hallwalls and Village Voice

quote:
"I think people want to believe," surmises the artist. Her World Records could only seem authentic in a world where so many extreme acts have resulted in so much art for so long. Last year at another gallery, Hines exhibited stills from World Record #4: Peristaltic Action, in which she supposedly deposited the world's longest shit down the length of a bowling alley. And she fooled people there too (since, according to New Art Examiner, some gallery goers were offended).

26 feet? I vote faked, somehow - and I've not seen any pictures or viewed the article.

The entire length of an average human's small intestine is around 30 feet, and their large intestine is around 7 feet. Since the contents of their small intestine are fairly liquid (the large intestine is used mostly to remove excess water and electrolytes, if I remember correctly), the longest stool wouldn't be much over five feet (even counting for restriction in diameter from their anal sphincter) in my opinion. Even with plugging everything for up to one week, only the large intestine would be used to remove water (therefore solidifying the wastes).

LMAO! Too funny.

Edited because I finally decided to look at the pics.

I figured there would be a pic of a 26 foot long turd- they can't even offer that. The least they could do would be to 'Shop something.

that's bullshit, if you'll excuse the expression.

-and anyway, if you consumed a high fiber diet augmented by fiber laxatives for a week, no damn plug would do the trick. Ever had to answer natures' call while you were, for example, stuck in traffic or otherwise not convenient to a potty? Man, after a certain amount of time past the "hey there, this is your colon knocking" point, and nature's gonna have her way regardless of a plug.

-gad, who would ever even *think* of something like that? I'm so glad that my life is full of all sorts of meaningful things, so that beyond the immediate practical matter of answering nature when she calls, I don't think about poop very much or find myself dwelling on how to make up a ridiculous prank involving poo poo. Lordy.

Not touching the authenticity of the thing with a barge-pole - but the clock at bottom right gave me a chuckle.

If I'd been corked for a week on a fibre-rich diet, it wouldn't take me 20 minutes to offload.

OK, you've been warned:

While in college, a roommate of mine broke a bottle of Drakar cologne in the bathroom (this will become important later).
That weekend, after a particular nasty night of drinking, the same roomate went to "drop the kids off at the pool". During his rather long session, I left to do whatever (probably buy some aspirin...). I returned several hours later to an empty apartment, except for...drum roll, please...

THE LONGEST SHIT I"D EVER SEEN in the toilet. It wrapped around 1 1/2 times. Amused, I didn't flush it. When D (the shitter) returned home, I asked him why he left that, to which he replied: "Did you see the size of that thing? I wanted you guys to see it". Well, I couldn't fault him on that. It was truly a masterpiece.

Problem was -- you'll remember the Drakar incident I wrote of--the apartment had taken on a decidedly sick smell of Drakar and shit.

Anyway, never before or since had I witnessed anything like it. It is only upon writing this that I now recall that the bowl was free of toilet tissue. I am not sure, but I guess that he was so careful about his work that he deposited the tissue outside of the pot so as not to disturb the landscape...a true artist.

Okay, that made me remember that my cousins used to rate their bowel movements by size, color, smell, and character.

And I'm really sorry that memory didn't stay repressed.

And I think I was adopted.

This reminds me of this thing that I read that Jeff Foxworthy said he did with his brother when they were little. They set out to make a really, really huge turd out of mud. I don't remember how huge it was, but it was probably bigger than the both of them. Then they tried to trick their mom into thinking one of them did it. Needlesss to say, she thought they were full of crap. [Big Grin]
