Portable Poop Flashlight

July 11, 2007

Toymaker Epoch has come up with this genius poop-shaped mini-flashlight for carrying around with your keys or gadgets. I love it—and I love that my readers immediately told me about it because they know I have a thing for poop.

It’s a Japanese thing, we love poop jokes.

We love poop so much that we even have names for the different kinds. For example, this one is called a makiguso, which literally means "crap roll." (Same "maki" that is in sushi rolls, like tekkamaki and futomaki.) It alludes to the spiraling shape that the poop makes as it clumps on top of itself.

Speaking of unko, can anybody recommend a good unko manga? I know there’s Toilet Hakase but that’s been out of print.

No problem! I thought it was somewhat cute actually. Even if it is a fake poo.

Looks more like a condom to me….

I think people are being mislead by the shape though, the bottom of the actual Unko is after the second “drop”. The rest is probably just the casing for the light and battery (the part where the Epoch brand is)
