The Case Of The Phantom Turd...

While in Minneapolis, I had something strange occur. I'm sitting on the toilet, reading the paper. I do my business and wipe up. I look down in the bowl prior to flushing and there is no turd. Where the hell did it go? I knew something came out. I felt it. I stoop down to see if it's hiding towards the back. Not a trace. Now, as an architect, I'm somewhat familiar with the anatomy of a toilet. I know that poop would have had to swim uphill in order to be out of my view. Has this ever happened to anyone? Maybe toilets in Minnesota have some chemical in them that eradicates poop on contact.

It's called "ghost poop".

As long as I know it is in the toilet. I'm good.

That is a scary poop! Maybe the force of the poo created a vacuum that sent it travelling faster than you could look? Do you always look and rate your poo?

Maritza-Nice to have you stop by! And on a poop post no less. I don't necessarily rate my poo, but I'm curious by nature and like to know what is going in and out of my body.

Flann, I thought it was called a "phantom poop"??

This happened to me once when I was young. I drank some invisible ink like a character in a tom and jerry and then my shit done dissapeared.

Do you remember having a larger amount of abdominal pressure than usual? Maybe it shot out your hinder with such force it got blown into the trap?
