Coll Bell donned his thinking cap one day and hatched a brilliant idea: a composting toilet that houses a colony of Tiger worms (little buggers that don't need to be told twice to "eat my shit") in its base. But before he could proceed with his business plan, the Kiwi inventor of The Wormorator had...

In the words of District Judge Terrence Gallagher: while the plaintiff Dawn Herb's language "may be considered by some to be offensive, vulgar...

The Pennsylvania Department of Revenue considers toilet paper a necessity. Therefore, it is not taxed. In fact, it's against the law for a licensed vendor in this country to tax items that their state's Department of Revenue says are not to be taxed. In Pennsylvania, the penalty for improper...

Shouldn't that be IN the little toilet instead of next to it? Restaurateur Wang Tzi-wei has figured out what PoopReporters have known for years: toilets are funny.

Mr. Whipple clearly had a toilet paper fetish. He could not keep his hands off the stuff. He caressed it. He stroked it. He massaged it. He had a wicked gleam in his eyes. The sort an older man has when he is giving candy to a little girl. He spawned an entire generation of toilet paper squeezers....

The American Spectator's Florence King writes a fascinating and incisive review of Emily Cockayne's new book Hubbub: Filth, Noise and Stench in England, 1600-1770.

The BM Newswire's mission is not just to report poop in the news, but to provide context and meaning to mainstream media reports that, in the face of poop, usually lack both.
