Panning for Turds and the Fecal Fiend

My neighbors are home after a week in the Caribbean. When they are gone, I watch out for their FOUR CATS and ONE LITTER BOX. I've never been so happy for them to get home.

Let's just say, the experience has been good for the diet. And I can't look at Tootsie Rolls without feeling nauseous.

Also, on the agenda this past weekend, we got to pick up Mr. Funny from his Poindexter Camp. He has been there for the past 6 weeks and we've missed his mood swings witty banter around the house.

When asked to share his experiences with us, he told us about one night when all the boys were called together for an impromptu meeting. Apparently, some boy had pooped in the sink in one of the academic halls. They were out to get this bathroom bandit.

Of all the stories. He has been at an academic camp majoring in Social Studies and the first story that comes to mind deals with this sneaky crapper. Nice.

Hope your weekend was pooptastic great, too!

Funny how poops are only tolerable if they belong to a member of your own household.

Pooping in the sink is inexcusable. Ugh.

Just threw up a little in my mouth.

K13 said...

wow...so you were surrounded by poop this past weekend huh?

4 cats & only 1 litter box...that's frightening.

YOU GOT RID OF YOUR MOOD SWINGER FOR SIX WEEKS!!!! Next time you have got to tell me where this slice of heaven is located!!! Supersperm is killing me!!!

I finally realized that I should shell out some $$ for the zoo/waterpark pass. Our zoo has a new pimped out over the top water park. I thought our local pool would be enough. But, I need to ramp up the action a little.

Throw some legos at Poindexter.

LMAO

Hilarious...


Mmmmmm....Tootsie Rolls...

Comedy Goddess said...

Reminds of my that classic Redneck joke:
How do you know when you are staying in a Redneck motel?
When you call the front desk to say, "I've got a leak in my sink." And the manager says, "Well, go ahead!"

Fragrant Liar said...

Boy humor (of course, I had four girls and they all had a fascination with bodily functions too), and FOUR cats to ONE catbox?! That's just cruel for you and for the cats too!

Fragrant Liar said...

HAHAHA! Comedy Goddess, that's a good one.

TechnoBabe said...

This made me laugh so hard I kept calling hubby into the room while he was attempting to brush his teeth. Tootsie Rolls no more! Ugh.

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

Why did I not send my Mr. Moody to camp for six weeks??? Poop and all.

Jason, as himself said...

I love the term "panning for turds" in relation to litter boxes. Brilliant.

And pooping in the sink? Who would even think of that? What kind of warped mind would do that? Were the stalls all occupied and it was an emergency?

Chris@Maugeritaville said...

Did you ever see the movie "Parenthood" with Steve Martin? Your story reminds me of the scene where Steve asks his son where he learned the "Diarrhea Song" he was singing in the car...

"At camp."

"Ah, that was money well-spent."

There's always a poop story. Always.

beth said...

with five kids, two still in diapers, most of my weekends are pooptastic. i just never thought to call them that. hell...my life is pooptastic! thanks for the new term!

Kristina P. said...

Cats and I are not friends. They probably would have all run away.

Kulio said...

ahhh, The Neighbor's Cats...so many stories, so little time...

my cousin saw a sign downtown that said, "Tom Cat Neuter Fest" and laughed when she found out that it was actually a neutering event, and not a local ska band.

:-)

darsden said...

Oh my congrats on getting rid of the tootsie rolls...LOL

Candice said...

Get your neighbors one of those handy dandy electric litter boxes for Christmas this year.

You'll be replaced by the pooper scooper.

lakeviewer said...

Poop teaches us that shit is everywhere.

otin said...

when I was a kid, my Dad and Stepmom had a cat and a dog, the dog stayed in the garage most of the time because for some odd reason, he liked to eat cat crap! My Stepmother would tell us that we needed to clean out the litter box, so me and my brother would just open the garage door and let the dog in! LMAO! That is pretty gross thinking about it now!!!

Blogging about poop is my favorite.

Bee and Rose said...

It always comes down to the toilet humor with that gender, doesn't it?

LOVE the title of this post! It's pooptastic! LOL!

Nancy said...

You're cat sitting for the wrong people! I took care of 4 cats last week, and their five, count them, five litter boxes. Come to think of it, one would have been easier!

Vodka Mom said...

Yikes.


And yes, my weekend was great! No cats OR litter boxes!!!

Wonderful World of Weiners said...

A teeny tiny mutant man eating hairball makes you gag? WIMP!!

Hallie :)

Courtney said...

I don't know about you but every summer I always look for a really good "Who Done It?".
Looks like Mr. Funny didn't have to look so far. Instead of a book, he got a free ticket to mystery theatre.

Obviously the student was angry or was having separation anxiety. I once new a person that got mad at her roommate and decided to pee in the litter box that was located in annoying roommates room. Disgusting, rude and funny. I think the word I am looking for here is crude!

Uh...wait...seriously???
:(

dana said...

Why haven't I listed you on my blog before now? I dunno. On my way to correct my oversight right this minute.

Jan said...

Well, this is the kind of post that makes you grateful for a cat allergy.

Ewww.

Captain Dumbass said...

6 weeks?

Seriously?

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Pooptastic! Too funny! D2 came back from the state FBLA conference and the first story we got was how the boys played a prank on them and put a live lobster in their shower. KIDS! Gotta love 'em.

Brenda Susan said...

Yep, you are the mom of boys!! Aren't they fun?!

Deb said...

Reminds me of years ago when my oldest son was a counselor at a basketball camp - and one of the campers pooped in the trashcan - nasty. My sons were into the whole farting, armpit noises stuff but that was the extent of it - I think. And now you understand why I am a dog lover. Have a pooptastic day.

Mrs. K said...

well this post was full of crap!

hee hee

JennyMac said...

Oh, this made me laugh out loud. We went to Mexico for one week and felt bad enough for our friend watching our ONE cat and one litter box. Big bottle of wine went her way. UGH. Four cats? Thats four too many for me. LOL.

carma said...

glad to hear your cat duty is over. And no one likes a sneaky shitter!!!

Em said...

So what you're telling me is that once Youngest is potty trained, I really won't be done with poops.

Awesome.

Suldog said...

Stories about poop are the best!

:-)

lizspin said...

That proves it! Males and cats are gross! And male cats are the grossest of all!

True Blue Texan said...

Your post title grabbed me by the short hairs and dragged me over here from the comments at Jan's. I must say, you have a way with words. And the thing with the sink...gross but typical. Boys, whenever gathered in large quantities (say over 4 in a room) always seem to find the urge to do something totally gross irresistible. Or have I been told. Since I have 2 girls, I am not speaking from firsthand experience. Though my youngest can hold her own in a belching contest.

Midwest Mommy said...

I can never look at tootsie rolls again, lol! I love tootsie rolls and now I think I will think of cat poop too!

Crazy Charm said...

hahaha The sneaky shitter! That's great!
