Synopsis

Did you know that Martin Luther suffered from constipation, and spoke, wrote and thought in fecal imagery? That Luther's vision of the Devil was of an anus-faced job mooning and farting over the great Reformer at prayer. If you'd like to know more about our bodily functions and the taboos that surround them, then Paul Spinrad's book of bodily emissions is especially for you. England's upper crust is renowned for its toilet humour. Why? Where else would there be a scatalogical Lives of the Greats? Who was the intermationally-famous farting singer who has a street named after him in Paris? And how much will a can of shit sell for in Sothebys? What about the history and evolution of toilet paper? From different coloured urine to where do you pick your nose (bathroom, bedroom, car?) and what do you do with the boogers when you've snagged them, this scientifical, anthropological, historical, mytholigical, soiologi al, and artistic study brings bodily functions out of the (water) closet into the public arena. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Format: Taschenbuch
Spinraid is a genius and his guide to bodily fluids is totally brilliant. He deals with countless taboo subjects with a sanity and clarity that many 'mainstream' publishers would be proud of. Anyone with any vague interest in how their body secretes and excretes and the sociological aspects of bodily functions (think about it - that must be everyone in the whole world) should buy two copies of this book, because one copy of this magnificent tome will be stolen.

HASH(0x98c0221c) von 5 Sternen Plain speaking about the unspeakable 16. April 2007
Von Schtinky - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
"No matter how ready your minds and souls are to live in an eternal abstract world of language, reason, truth, beauty, and card games, you're still trapped inside an aging meat machine," says author Paul Spinrad. While the book covers mucus, saliva, sweat, vomit, urine, pooting, poo, earwax, toe-cheese, and others, its main focus remains on poo.

How were things "handled" before toilet paper? Ever contemplate the history of the enema? Did you know that loose bowels were once treated with opium? Learn the story of Joseph Pujol, "The Fartiste", famous for his flatulence. Is vomit an "involuntary food review"? Drinking urine is a cure? An antiseptic? (the ammonia in unine) Did you know there's much more to mucus than just a few boogies?

How about bodily functions in literature (Shakespeare, The Marquis de Sade, Dante, Picasso, James Joyce, Mark Twain, Burroughs, Selby, and adding one of my own, modern writer Edward Lee), or in classic cinema? What is Cockle Bread? What about Freud's connection between poo and $exuality?

There are poo quotes from famous people from Shakespeare to Tiny Tim, an extensive look into the invention of the toilet, a glance at toilets across the world, poo in religion and folklore, and even poo in art. The world of poo is amazingly artistic and intellectual world. There's even a brief mention to the hilarious cartoon 'Ren & Stimpy' in the 'Art, Music, & Criticism' chapter, showing an elaborate research from ancient to modern references.

This book includes Spinrad's Survey Methodology, a copy of the survey itself, a detailed 'Recommended Reading' section, an extensive Bibliography, and a full Index. Unfortunately, there are no pictures, and I felt that a few pictures would have spiced up the book a little bit. At only 121 pages, the book is large sized but slim, making reading easy and enjoyable. So ... Enjoy!

HASH(0x98c02468) von 5 Sternen Informative and Extremely Amusing 26. Juli 2001
Von Chris Ward - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The perfect mixture of scholarship and humor, this book, with its "icky" topic, is worthy of serious attention. But I'd be lying if I didn't say that the reason I love it most is that it makes me laugh-- on several occasions I laughed so hard that I woke up my wife, who was trying vainly to sleep next to me. As Spinrad's sources tell about their own habits regarding their precious bodily fluids, it's impossible not to recognize how much we share in regards to these daily substances-- and impossible not to laugh at how we treat these taboos.

HASH(0x98c02a08) von 5 Sternen Thorough, wry, fun treatment of "dirty" things 15. Januar 1998
Von Kyle Hoskins - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
One of the best RE/Search books in the entire series, the Guide to Bodily Fluids is an expansive and educating tour into the dimly-lit areas of all the smelly, gross, and/or funny substances to emanate from humanity. A must-have for fans of toilet humor. Enough science to give the layperson a grounding in the intricacies of, say, why dogs eat their own dirt, and why some people think a cup of urine in the morning keeps the doctor away. A quirky chapter towards the end has some wonderful literary references to bodily fluids, though I was saddened to see my personal favorite--Sancho Panza's evacuation of his bowels from horseback, due to extreme terror, in "Don Quixote"--was missing. In each chapter are responses to a hilarious survey the author conducted to try and get to the bottom of such questions as "How many times a day do you pick your nose?" and "What kind of foods make you fart?" This book is equally at home on a bookshelf or next to the toilet, for those constipated times when you wish you could learn more about the subject. A triumph of learned comedy.

HASH(0x98c02c24) von 5 Sternen Sort of a joke book 13. April 2013
Von Kenny.K - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Not for a long evening of heavy reading. A novel take on a subject that most people just do not want to talk about.
