New Book Gives Straight Poop On Poop

BROOKLYN, N.Y. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A new book is flushing away fears about feces.

That’s the straight poop from excrement expert Dave Praeger, who explores the history of crap in his new book Poop Culture: How America Is Shaped By Its Grossest National Product (Feral House).

Praeger wasn’t always crazy about crap – in fact he feared it himself for a long time.

He admits it was his friends who helped him get over his poop plight six years ago when they would post their favorite feces facts on the website,

Now, Praeger is considered the “professor of poop,” and helps people overcome their fear of fecal matter daily.

Although he now loves talking sh■■, Praeger admits he draws the line at actually examining human waste, and gets queasy when people take dumps next to him in public restrooms.

Says Praeger: “I’m very easily grossed out. I don’t like looking at pictures of poop or any of the physical aspect of it...An image gives off a completely different and negative feel than just talking about it. Talking makes it less taboo.”
