The term “Toilet Humor” is often used with negative connotations. Usually to describe a brand of comedy that is so simple, so unintelligent, that there is no thinking involved in order to get the joke. It’s as simple as one, poo, pee. All fart jokes and poop jokes and what not. And I get that people think it’s obnoxious and immature, and I agree that ONLY that humor can get old real fast. But I’m going to tell you something else...I cannot think of a day in my life where I will stop finding farts funny.
They will always make me laugh. Someone having a weird sounding one out of nowhere. One that is so loud it interrupts a conversation. One that comes during the dramatic pause of a movie after the bad guy has just admitted that he did kill the protagonist’s friend. There’s just so many different types, it’s amazing. And I’ll always get a kick out of poop stories. Things found in the toilet. Things that you would expect to find in the toilet yet you found them elsewhere.
I guess my point is that not all “Toilet Humor” is bad and in smaller doses it has it’s place in society. I think it’s great we have this type of humor. It gives us variety, one more type of comedy to add to the list, which in turn helps all types of comedy. The more types there are, the more rare each type is. Thus, making them more enjoyable when encountered. That’s my theory anyway. Maybe you disagree, maybe everyone disagrees. But I don’t care. Poop. It’s funny. To me. And have you ever heard someone fart so loud it just sounds like, “Wow, how did they not crap their pants?” That’s the best. Because that turns into laughing at the expense of someone else’s misfortune. And that’s something we can all relate to.
