From the Publisher: That last barrier of good taste falls disintegrates collapses in a cascade of laughter. That one place in out life where mystery and privacy still prevailed was the toiler. Locked behind the bathroom door the subject of human deification has remained free of careful analysis until now. Wilson Creek has blown the door off the hinges in his new book Now Heres a Man Who Knows His Shit. Somehow he managed to do it in good taste and dignified humor almost.
Creek provides the novice with a careful considered guide to Scatology. One learns to read the future by a careful examination of the morning dump. We learn that the creation of a Seagulls Delight is a sign of impending doom. It is the type of bowel movement that foreordains unbounded bad luck. You are advised to stay in camp or better yet, stay in bed! At the other end of the scale comes the Long Slider. This is the kind of omen that insures good luck, happy times and unbounded good fortune.
A wonderfully illustrated guide to The Laws of Scatology and The Omens of Scatology makes it easy for the reader to create judicious predictions as to how your day will go.
The Omens of Scatology is followed by stories of some of the Wests famous turds. In The Great Juntura Golden Darryl Williams produces one of the worlds great movements, a magnificent, glistening, full unbroken curl and a half. Only the malevolent flushing of the toilet by the blasphemous Mary Marvel kept this legendary turd from being recorded on film.
A series of half dozen short stories follow, all pertaining to the subject of excreta. Other than the title, there is no profanity used in this book and it certainly doesnt need it to get chuckles.
The book is wonderfully illustrated with over 60 drawing, some original and some from old line engravings.
I can promise you one thing; after reading this book you will never again blithely flush the toilet without taking a serious look.
