Poop jokes are a funny thing (no pun intended).
In fact, poop is one of the few words that actually sounds like the thing it represents.
I still can't help but giggle when I hear the word "poop." That, and "diarrhea." Very mature, I know...
But, here's the thing about poop jokes.
When we're kids, they're funny and plentiful. When we grow up, we use it as a profanity, and typically go with the S-word.
But poop is...well...pretty gross, when you think about it.
We may say, "This tastes like poop!" (or the S-word if you're over the age of twelve).
But...what if it actually tasted like poop? Chances are you'd puke, then scramble for your phone to call an ambulance.
Sometimes we talk about something so much, we take the literal meaning for granted.
But it's fun to think about from time to time.
