Today In Poop News: Squatty Potty & The Girl Who Got A Fecal Transplant

Gather ’round, kids. Time for your poop news of the day! First, the latest in better toilet technology is the Squatty Potty, a stool that helps you achieve proper pooping posture. Or you can just squat on your toilet seat — but the Squatty Potty looks more comfortable. You can buy one starting at $34.95. The company also sells other potty products. Don’t worry, I’m not even going to bring up baby wipes. I don’t want to incite a riot. I’ve included a Squatty Potty instructional video after the jump.

In other, more serious poop news, 20-year-old Kaitlin Hunter’s life was saved by a fecal transplant! After surviving a near-fatal car accident, she developed a potentially deadly colon infection that wouldn’t go away so they took her mother’s poop and transplanted it in her colon. Literally, her mom pooped, they diluted it and pumped it into her colon and  it cured her. Amazing. The healing powers of poop. OK. I’ll really stop talking about poop now.
