So says Lyn Thomas, author of 100% Pure Fake (Kids Can Press), which teaches kids how to create the nastiest special effects to trick their friends and family.
This includes gross-out concoctions like fake Veggie Vomit, rotting skin, fake snot, and the ultimate sick trick, edible dog poop.
Thomas says nibbling on a piece of poo garners an instant reaction from petrified onlookers, and she should know she tested the trick out on the kids in her neighborhood.
When she picked up the fake doo-doo made of oats, cereal, cocoa powder, vanilla, and sugar and stuffed it in her mouth, the youngsters went nuts.
Thats when Thomas knew she had a hit.
Though fake poo will get a laugh, placing it on Mom and Dads pillow or favorite book is risky considering it could lead to a grounding.
