False Feces Demonstration
November 19 was World Toilet Day. In honor of the occasion, activists in Switzerland held a "false-feces demonstration" outside the Bern train station. This involved placing hundreds of fake rubber droppings on the pavement. The point of this fecal fakery was to raise awareness about sanitation problems around the world. The Sun has pictures of the plastic poo.

"The Sun has pictures of the plastic poo."

Why doesn't this surprise me?

Watch out where the huskies go,
And don't you eat that yellow snow!

A great idea for the occasion. That would have been great to do on the Gold Coast with the current issues over cbd appearance for tourism.

Can anyone recall how many tonnes of the real thing end up on the streets of Paris thanks to the combined BMs of all their pooches? A scary huge number, that's all I know . . . The Swiss are fastidious because of their neighbours, I suspect.

Ha! A girl in one of my art classes made fake poo and placed it all around the street and studio- similar stunt. They were very realistic.
