Smell the Roses, Laugh at Poop

Yep, poop. Poop is funny. Don't get me wrong, I am just like most girls and don't want any males in my company to be aware of anything I may do that may be related to the P word. (Don't worry boys, I don't actually do anything related to the P word ever. No women do, and we just naturally smell like fruit and flowers all of the time). That being said, poop really is just funny. The reason this even came up for me is from browsing through old 30 Rock episodes. Tina Fey seems to particularly think that poop jokes are amusing and if it's good enough for Tina, it's good enough for me. Some amusing quote examples:

'You've already made up your mind about this, haven't you?'
'Oh, you're right, Liz! I should go for it!'
'You're not even listening, are you? Poop. Monkey butt.'
'No, you're a good friend and thank you.'
-30 Rock Season One, Black Tie

'It's poop again!'
'He called the sh-- poop!'
- Billy Madison

'You wrote "poop." This must be a proud moment for you, Mr. Brando.'
- Will Ferrel as Alex Trebek on SNL (scroll to 6:10)

Looking at son's hand, 'Is this chocolate or poop?' Licks hand to check. 'Chocolate.'
'What if that had been poop!?!'
- Baby Mama (scroll to 1:20)

Anything starting out as a compliment and ending with ... 'for me to poop on!'
-Triumph the Insult Comic Dog

'Sometimes, it's kind of hard to stop having fun and take the time to go to the bathroom and use the potty. Yep. The potty. Everybody and every creature has to poop sometime. Birds, bunnies, bugs, even fish too!'
- Bear in the Big Blue House

'Remember: Candy is dandy, but fruit helps you poop.'
- Kim Possible

Here is a funny site that when you type in a word it inserts that word into popular movie quotes. Try it with poop:

I don't know who said this next quote, but I totally agree with it:

The only true way to prove that you have lost your inner child is if you don't laugh when you hear the word poop.

The word poop should at the very least bring out an appreciative grin and eye roll. It doesn't even need to be in the middle of a phrase or a joke to be funny. Poop, poop, poop. See? If you still don't at least have an I-can't-believe-this-is-a-whole-blog-post-dedicated-to-something-as-vulgar-as-poop smirk on your face, then you need to go out and run in the sprinklers or build a sand castle or ride a bike with a basket and a bell on it, because your soul is withering my friend.

If you just have no idea what I am talking about at all, well, good luck to you. If you are a person who can laugh at poop then I think that it is a safe bet that you are the kind of person who can laugh at the trivial things and not take life too seriously, and that makes day-to-day a lot more enjoyable, I tell you what. For those of you that feel appalled and violated, you will notice that I have at least spared you from posting any visual examples. I had a really good one too. Mom, please don't be ashamed of me for this post- I know you are one of the smirkers who wants to chuckle but feels like they shouldn't ;)

My darling sister, you have truly hit the nail on the head. Could anything, anything at all, truly be more amusing than poop? I submit that it could not!

I don't even know how to respond to that.. I'll just write it backwards. Poop.
