The Great Bowel of China
Submitted by Professor Schitz
April 23, 2007, 28 Comments

Here I am in China. Again. For the fourth time. I work as a history professor in an "American-Style" business education college program. It's what they call a joint venture between a Chinese university and an American university. But, to be perfectly honest, I can't tell you what a "joint venture"...

New York Shitty: Confronting Mortality I
Submitted by Miss Heather
March 20, 2007, 15 Comments

Editor's note: this was originally posted on the author's blog. Entitled "New York Shitty," it's a blog about just what you think. She submitted this to PoopReport, and I'm happy to post it. Today I made a lengthy sojourn to the far hinterlands of Greenpoint, Brooklyn. I took a number of wonderful...

The Meeting Of The Scoopers

"Normally, you can tell when a dog doesn't want you there." So says Dave Silva, a young entrepreneur with strong features and an easy manner, as he explains to me the day-to-day of his business. "But sometimes things seem perfectly normal, and you bend down to pick up some poop, and you still end...

Shameless In Seattle: A Tour of Public B
Submitted by Fart Poopie
November 27, 2006, 27 Comments

Editor's note: A few months ago, GottaGoGirl reported on the state of Seattle's fancy public toilets -- and the fact that Seattleites have actually seen an increase of poop on the streets since they've been installed. Last week, Fart Poopie decided to investigate the situation in person. Finding...

The Hindness of Strangers

October 24, 2006, 22 Comments

Before I begin, I feel it is necessary for me to point out the fact that my bowels get homesick very easily. That being the case, it goes without saying that a trip consisting of a few thousand miles and a remote village in Honduras would make for a very adventurous journey indeed. So there I was,...

Up And Down In The Daiei Stairwell

September 19, 2006, 18 Comments

I'm a recently discharged sailor who spent four-and-a-half years living in Japan. During my stay there I experienced the local poop culture from Australia to the northernmost island in Japan and as far west as the Persian Gulf; I crapped on the gamut of crappers, and I gave reconstituted beer back...

Up In My Tiny German Attic

August 1, 2006, 56 Comments

I spent the entire man on the moon year living and working for the Army in Frankfurt, Germany, as a Civilian Personnel teacher. I lived with and sometimes travelled on weekends to various other countries with my uncle, aunt, and cousins. But after my family went back to the States that summer, I...

The Toilets of North Korea

We pulled up to Dandong station, on the Chinese side of the Yalu River, around seven AM. Two carriages of the train were North Korean sleepers. We were on the lead one. The journey had started out fourteen hours previously in Beijing. This was a trip to the DPRK, as the locals prefer to call it,...

The Tijuana Ass

March 31, 2006, 59 Comments

When I was about sixteen, my boyfriend at the time and I drove down to Tijuana, Mexico. We had a blast at the open-air market. I took a huge chance and got a burrito from some guy that had a food cart. It was yummy until my boyfriend told me what the meat probably was. Anyways, after a while I had...

The Winnebago To Lambeau Field
Submitted by Ollie Norge
December 6, 2005, 34 Comments

I had never tailgated before. In fact, I had no idea what it was. I'm not a sports fan at all, and I have only been in this country for a few years, teaching mathematics at a medium-sized university in the Midwest. I speak native English because my parents served in the military and were stationed...

Kathmandoo
Submitted by PooperGal
October 31, 2005, 25 Comments

My lifelong list of bowel disasters is pathetically short. For whatever reason, my personal poop history has never been particularly interesting or of note beyond the usual "had-to-hold-it-until-I-got-to-the-bathroom-then-let-it-fly" diarrhea stories. Nothing that qualified for a film at eleven....

Ooooooh, Canada
Submitted by PINWORM
October 12, 2005, 82 Comments

About five years ago I was working as a private investigator for a firm that specialized in business investigations. For the most part, the clients were corporations who would have us investigate franchise owners for doctoring the books and such. Sometimes a client would hire us to go "fishing" for...

Pooping in the North Woods
Submitted by Splatterbuns
September 2, 2005, 34 Comments

There are few places on earth that require as much poop-planning as the wilderness. A favorite vacation spot of mine is the Boundary Waters Wilderness Canoe Area (BWCA) in northern Minnesota. One would think that with nothing around and nothing to do but paddle a canoe and haul your stuff through...

European Defecation
Submitted by PatrioticPooper
June 22, 2005, 59 Comments

In the early 90's I was a sailor stationed onboard the aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower. My story takes place halfway through a six-month "Med Cruise." It was Christmastime and the crew was enjoying a well-deserved port visit. To be honest, I can't remember if we were in France or...

Seoul Food
Submitted by Lai
June 7, 2005, 46 Comments

First, let me start off by saying that I am Chinese. Therefore, I have eaten things that most of you wouldn't even consider to be food. I learned long ago not to even ask what it was I am eating. With all that experience, I have never really had a problem eating foreign food. It doesn't affect me...

Editor's note: This essay is an excerpt reprinted with permission from the author's fascinating blog. In the middle of Yangshuo, China, is Yangshuo Park, a medium-sized park with a karst mountain in the center that can be climbed to a gazebo at its top. Entrance to the park costs nine Renminbi; it...

Gone With the Wind: The Night Train To D
Submitted by DungDaddy

I lived in Germany from 1989 to 1991. One cold February night 1991, I was traveling by train to Düsseldorf. What business I had in Düsseldorf I can scarcely remember, but I will never forget the ordeal that I endured en-route. I don't know what the passenger carriages of the Deutsche...

Now You See It: Showtime In Vegas
Submitted by Logjam
February 7, 2005, 25 Comments

I'm in Las Vegas, where I've come with my brother to catch up on life while watching my favorite magic show: money disappearing right before my eyes. With all the extravaganzas to choose from here in the Neon City, I consider the best show to be watching fellow sojourners in the casinos deal with...

The Foul Of The Iron Curtain
Submitted by Anonymous
January 28, 2005, 38 Comments

This story happened several years ago while on a backpacking trip through Russia and Eastern Europe. It was my first trip of the sort, and I made it alone, which turned out to be a lot more fun than it would have had I traveled with my friend as originally planned. My friend punked out at the last...

Indian Sugar Cane Juice, And What Happen

Last year my wife and I were in India. After going to Kashmir, we went on an excursion to Jaipur and Ajmer. It was really hot -- forty-two centigrade (or whatever that is in the American system) in the shade. I wondered where they had found that shade. So, on the road, we got ourselves some sugar...
