Apparently there’s a children’s museum in Utah that teaches kids grossology. It’s not a study of things that come in packages of 144, either.
From the article: “And kids like to say words like poop and fart. They get excited about saying those words.”

Well, Schlock is a walking (no. slithering? nah. I guess he kind of undulates across a floor) poop joke anyway. Though I can’t say I recall any instances of fart jokes in Schlock. I guess there are some limits.
What exactly would Schlock be classified as? A gastropod? A cephalopod? A torsopod? I guess do to his interesting look, he could be considered a fecopod… Any ideas?
Pseudopod, I think. He technically has no appendages, but can use the mass of his body to fake them at will.
y’know, after the week you just had, I’d think you’d want to stay FAR AWAY from things poop and fart related. :p
Nah, that’s not the end they’ve been having trouble with.
well, the kids yes, but if you’ll recall Howards post from…hrrm…saturday or sunday, his body was pulling double duty (or is it doody?) in the bathroom 😉
Any way that we can get her to come to the DC area?
is on exhibit in Atlanta through August 21st at Fernbank Museum. Looks like, um, fun.
It’s all about givingchildren something scientific to be interested in, if that means studying grossology, just to get them interested int he facts, as long as it keeps them interested in science later it’s a good thing.
I, for one, find this totally unfair. When do those of us who are fascinated by the multiples of twelve get our exhibit, huh?

a little before quarter-past noon, three days before the ides of December?
Tell you kids about geophagy and why pregnant women practice this.
Believe it or not, this actually came up briefly at the end of the Fuddrucker’s conversation, in the context of why rats can’t vomit and what they do about it (eat clay to help deal with ingested poisons).
I have pica for avocados. It’s just not supposed to be happening to a meat and poetaters man.
They showed this at my local Science Center. Pretty entertaining… for the kids, I mean. The kids enjoyed it.
Do they come to Canadian cities?
That I don’t know; maybe. If there are science centers in Canada, I would assume that they might. Contact a local center.
Science World in Vancouver had it a couple years ago.
cool thanks 🙂
Should keep ’em busy giggling.
