We rarely think about how we poop. For most of us, we just sit on the toilet, play Candy Crush, and do our business. I was recently in Africa and came face to face with a squat toilet. That's basically a hole in the ground that you squat over to do your stuff. I couldn't bring myself to use it. But the truth is that for millions of years that's exactly how our ancestors did it. The modern toilet and its sitting position are a very recent invention. Some poopologists, or whatever the people who study this stuff are called, are now calling into question whether or not it is better for us to literally pop a squat.
That's where the Squatty Potty and the ice cream pooping unicorn come into it. The Squatty Potty is basically a stool you use to prop your feet up into a proper pooping stance when you are sitting on a conventional western toilet. Why they have a unicorn puppet defecating ice cream while a guy dressed like a prince tells you about the Squatty Potty is a different story. I guess their marketing team are a bunch of high hipsters. Get it here.
