Who Pooped Dot Org.

Quite literally, my new favorite website:

Who Pooped Dot Org

    Kelsey, is that rabbit poop on the right?

    I kicked ass on the first set of poop connections.

    Deron, that looks like deer poop to me. Unless it’s from those bunnies Kim Jong-Il imported to feed his starving country.

    No, even then I’d doubt it.

    I thought it was “scat”. Rats. I guess that’s only wordless vocalizing.
