Ahhh yeah, I'm not quite of the mind where a "poop" museum, no matter how cute, would be on my list for a visit. Putting cuteness on crap and creating a museum is absurd. But because the Japanese live with so many rules, stepping outside normal boundaries is difficult and anti-social. So the absurd, a poop museum, becomes funny and trendy. Next up.... possibly a "booger" museum.

This coming in a country that puts mosaics on porn, but has a penis festival, so I guess nothing is as it seems!

I once had a pink poop. I was seriously ill from eating too much cotton candy.

I can see those poops shape objects in Japan, anywhere in New Year's days.

I’m happy for them and that they can find cuteness in everything. However, poop is something that I don’t find cute and I will never get my children into the habit of playing with their poop.

How puerile !!!!

Anyone who thinks this is art or cute is developmentally arrested - stuck at some anal stage.

Truely.

First I thought it was a ridiculous idea, but art is always challenging the way we think, it makes us ask questions of ourselves. So in that vein, although this is not fine art, it is crappy art

On a serious note, there is a SERIOUS problem with elementary school children, particularly boys, who have a serious problem with taking a poop during school hours. Some get quite ill and maybe this museum has an ulterior motive in trying to make it seem lighter!

This is not a museum. It's a faeces Disneyland for kids and infantile adults to snigger at. A real museum would document the real thing. Behold! The Bristol Stool Chart!

Read it and weep, kiddies.
