Kama Pootra: 52 Mind-Blowing Ways to Poop

1 rating: 5.0
A book

This upcoming coffee table book (which is probably inappropriate for most coffee tables) by Daniel Cole Young keeps it simple and relies on that great tenet of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia": Poo is funny. Always. (Metro New York)

Bathroom Humor Meets Spiritual Enlightenment

I got this book as a gag-gift for some friends at a "white elephant" Christmas party. Before I gave it away I decided to go through it and see what all the silliness in here was about. Before I bought this book I thought this was yet another one of those books where all the humor was contained in the premise and the title. Not so: this little gem of a book is humorous throughout, and it manages to build on the underlying theme and gradually progress through various, ahem, positions. Furthermore, for a book that purportedly blends bedroom and bathroom humor it is remarkably "clean" and devoid of truly gross images and language. The language in particular is subdued, and the poop is the "harshest" our-letter word that you will come across. Even though throughout this book it is alluded to its purported ancient religious significance, the topic of religion is treated gently and without condescension.

The book is divided into four main sections: Solo, Group Positions, Positions with Toys, and Specialty Positions. I was a bit apprehensive about what sort of images some of these sections may contain, but overall I've found everything to be within fairly wide mainstream. The book is nicely illustrated, but none of the illustrations are very explicit. The writing is very amusing and it made me quite literally lough-out-loud on a several occasions. Below are some of my favorite quotes:

"Pooping with the sensation of imminent death is one of life's greatest thrills." (Skydive)

"Because how can you really know someone unless you've pooped together?" (Regarding group positions.)

"Simply restated, what you put in determines what you get out." (On pooping while eating.)

And the words of wisdom with which the book concludes:

"Bathroom time is precious. Poop every time as if it were your last."

This is a silly and humorous book that can be a great bathroom read or a gift for some of your friends who haven't had a good poop in a while.

LOL, I didn't even think about that. I was thinking of one of my best friends who's actually a girl, and the only girl I know who would really, really appreciate this. But very good point :P
