There's an Actual Poop Museum


Pooping is a daily part of life that most are too uptight to talk about. If you're not a fan of this stigma surrounding feces, consider a trip to the National Poo Museum, where poop is not only talked about openly, it's celebrated. 

As reported by Mashable, the UK's Isle of Wight Zoo is opening The National Poo Museum on Friday, March 25, 2016, offering a chance to "immerse oneself in the wonder of excrement." If you're into that sort of thing, book a flight to the UK stat to find yourself in a world where the freeze-dried poo of various species hangs from the ceiling, and a 38 million-year-old fecal specimen is on display. Also, you'll see this piece of crap:

Commenting on the weirdly innovative museum, a spokeswoman told the Isle of Wight County Press, "It's stinky, unpleasant and sometimes dangerous stuff — but it’s all around us and inside us too — and perhaps surprisingly our planet would be a much poorer place without it!"

She's right. That crap's important!
