From an online article about dogs pooping:

It’s not that they are trying to annoy you, well, it’s probably that too, but a recent study reported in Discovery News shows that wolves, and by extension their doggie descendants
…choose locations that maximize visual impact and odor distribution…They defecate in places that enhance the appearance and scent of their feces.

It is in deference to your inferior sense of smell. They want to make sure you know where they have been.

So ... what are you trying to tell us? I'm sure there no coincidence as to your first words and last word choices.

They're marking their scent and territory. The poop on the trail is to let other dogs know they went that way. The poop by the house marks that dwelling as theirs. Most dogs will pee in the same way. They want to let other dogs in the neighborhood know where they are going and where they live. Other dogs will come along smell their stuff and see.

For me it is sometimes the only intelligent conversation I can find . . . . . . . .



Always be prepared. Store the extra rolls in the cabinet within reach of the throne.

And always remember to keep it well stocked!


There is an American shop with branches in many countries which sells it in quantities which would leave no excuse for ever running out.

Indeed! I have bought from that "shop" and have rolls of TP that are almost a decade old stuffed into various cupboards.

Long before that shop opened here (last year) my GP found a large supply for his business and stored it in his garage. Filled enough space for half a car from floor to ceiling. He has now depleted that. I think his customers might have used a lot.

In his new surgery he has a sign up about the amount of TP use. And to not block the facility by disposing of the wrong kinds of things down it. It is that kind of part of town.

Sam Walton wouldn't have it any other way.

No coincidence at all, other than they were at the beginning and the end of the list alphabetically, and they both were on a list I found on the internet. I actually know all of them and more, but found it easier to grab them from an internet search as opposed to regurgitating them from memory.

Oh, and I wonder how many here noticed that the majority of the words relate to food.

Coincidence?

I think not.

After all, aren't the French known the world over for their cuisine?
