So the publisher of Poop Culture had a major problem with the idea of a collection of PoopReport's greatest hits at this moment in time. (More details about that on the forums.)

So that's on hold for now. However, the image of a thousand PoopReporters' fists plunged triumphantly into the air is still quite viable. You know the image. An army of Poop Power. A sea of fists holding their plungers aloft:

Even though the greatest hits collection is on hold for now, there's still a lot we can do with this imagery. A t-shirt, a poster, a coaster, a tea cozy... the possibilities are endless. So send me your pictures!

Here's how I need the pic:

  1. Angle and background are crucial. The camera needs to be slightly *above* the level of the plunger, and you need to be in front of a white wall. This means the person taking the picture will probably need to stand on a chair (or you will have to kneel). See the drawing below:

  • Take TWO pictures: One with the flash and one without the flash. That's because some flashes wash out all the color in the picture. If you *can't* figure out how to turn off your flash, well, don't worry about it.
  • In both cases, make sure you're taking the picture in a very well-lit area.

  • Email me high-resolution files. The file should be at least 500K.
  • The deadline is October 26. Xmas is coming up soon, so if we're going to do cool things, now is the time.
  • Confused? See an example here.

    To answer one question I've received: it doesn't matter if you have the red rubber plunger or a different model. Just use whatever you've got.

    And if you don't have a plunger? Then you live wayyyy too dangerously for my tastes.

    How does this compare to getting your picture on the cover of the Rolling Stones?

    Rolling Stones hurt when you get hit by them. rolling plungers just make you fall down laughing at the thought.

    So, I'd say this is a much better deal.

    See that is what you get for asking. It is always better to ask for forgivness rather than ask for permission when you plan to do it anyway.

    I think it will add to the picture to have various different kinds of plungers, as Dave stated above. It will give the idea of a total revolution with everyone picking up the tool at hand to fight for fecal freedom. A see of just red plungers suggests too much conformity, where different colors and models would make the cover stand out.

    Okay, then...should the plunger-end be pointing all to the left or right?

    I'm going to have to get my nails done.

    Then find someone whom I can afford to think I'm crazier than they already think I am, to take the picture for me.

    There's not a lot of time left!

    It doesn't matter -- I prefer variation in the pictures, actually, so whichever way you do it is fine.

    I'm trying to get a handle on this. The angle from above should catch us at a sort of diagonal bird's eye view, yes? So you can see the whole plunger, plus the person holding it aloft?

    No person -- just the plunger. I've pasted below the picture I received from Dave Shameless. This is exactly what I'm talking about:

    Ok, I guss only certain people are allowed to say 1st post rock without getting a lame comment sticker. I digress now.

    Do the walls have to be pure white for the picture? My walls a whitish coffee (off white or antique white).

    Off white is fine. Any solid color will do.

    healthy 1: here's a tip regarding 'first post' posts. It isn't a matter of who says it, it's a matter of content.

    Posts that consist of nothing but the comment, "First post," or "first post rocks!" are basically devoid of content and are subject to laming, no matter who posts them.

    If the 'first post' comment is accompanied by something of content, it will pass muster. But, in my opinion, the phrase, itself, is a waste of cyberspace.

    Hope that clears up the issue.

    I guess I'm out. All the walls in my house are about the same color as the nougat in a musketeers bar... maybe a little darker.

    Woohoo, this is so cool. I've got white walls, a black plunger, and a great manicure....I think I'm all set. I should figure out how to get my dog to hold a plunger too. She's an honorary PoopReport member, you know.

    I would have entered a photo, but I never heard of this web site before 10/28....embarrassing to admit, but true.
    And I don't own a plunger, although I have a very cool toilet brush with one of those under-the-rim extensions...it was white when I bought it...really should rinse it better, I suppose...
    Not that I should stick my nose where it doesn't belong, but the forearm of the plunger holder in the drawing sort of looks like the plunger was an afterthought...kind of looks like he just got done fisting someone and didn't yet wash his arm... or is that my imagination?
    Well, maybe next time with the photo submissions...
