Tasteful middlebrow reproductions from the National Museum o' Fart
Allegedly handcrafted items of a whimsical, organic, suburban-bohemian, high-colonic, holistic nature from New Age catalog Effluvia
Tasteless novelties and highly impractical practical jokes from the Ushita catalog
Upmarket gadgets and nifty, battery-operated devices from The Crapper Image
With parodies of mail order catalogs such as "The Crapper Image," "W.C. Pooterman," "Toylets 'R' Us," and "Modern Manurity," this"scatalog" takes potty humor to a new low. After a brief introduction comparing money to excrement, the authors showcase their mock offerings: there's the"Discobowl," from"The Crapper Image" ("Shake your booty while you do your duty!");"The Potty Barn" offers"The Presidential" toilet bowl ("an exact reproduction of the...model from which LBJ preferred to give press conferences"); while"Bowels & Nobowl" sells"The Public Restrooms of Madison County,""Chicken Poop for the Soul" and other"bestsmellers." The authors' disapproval of catalogs and our culture of consumption may be understandable ("What can you get for the child who has everything? More of it!" says the"Toylets"R" Us" catalog), but their way of expressing it isn't--few will find the vulgar jokes or the crude illustrations funny.
