I talked to my old mum by email about Forumosa and poo humour. The above was the result.
I’d thought that it was a bit of light hearted banter and good for a laugh and to relieve the tension of day to day work etc.
Looking into its murky depths I can see emotional states ranging from severe discomfort by some posters/ readers all the way through to the complexity of moral superiority imposed by others and some laughs in between.
I don’t quite know where to head from here. Probably look for the safe middle ground.
I sometimes wish I was once again the 8 year old at school who laughed so hard he pissed his pants and wished he had the dark grey shorts on that day instead of the very light grey ones.
More important of course than the embarrassment was having wasted all the reserve that was being saved for the pissing over the wall contest at lunch time. Simpler times back then.
