Why would I pay $15 to look at poop in a museum when I have fresh exhibits at home everyday for free

Sometimes I love Japan.

Ok. That does it. Japanese people are officially CRAZY

Visitors can buy poop-shaped trinkets with a wall for them to draw their own poop.

> No real poop was used to create the pop art exhibit, the organizer said.

Basically monetizing on some poop shaped stuff, which btw has been already on sale in Japan since the stone-age.

Toilet sinks should be the shape of Bristol Poop Chart. They say no. 4 is what u should have every day but i keep having No. 1, 2, 3 every day.

Btw, later this year London soon going to have the Worlds' First Vagina Musuem.

I thought this sounded okay and a laugh and then I saw the price. 1600 yen!

A poop exhibition that takes the pi....

Is the aroma included for authenticity?

I've been to some public toilets around the world that hadn't been cleaned for so long they would have qualified as Poop Museums. At least they didn't charge 1600 yen a visit.

When I go, I will stand outside and befriend a tokyoite. I will ask them if they can pay for me. ¥1600 is too much, but, where in the world can you experience this???

So this is where the meme 'Weird Japan' comes from.

The Japanese are fixated about poop. Not sure if any other nation has this fetish.

What next? A museum glorifying diarrhea?

Apparently the museum has a cafe where the customers sit on stools.

Poop, poop and more poop.

Poop in a museum- whatever is next?
