Being Poop John the First in the Church of the Holy Shitters I have obligations and a mission to accomplish. I am the “head”, after all, of
a secular environmental religion, scientifically based, with a focus on the psychology of it all. Our ego is the culprit when it comes to dealing with climate change. We cannot save the planet. We can only save ourselves. Our current egotistical self-perception makes that prospect a dubious one at best. Meekness, humility and a realization that our shit does stink, guides us on our path to true sustainable living and climate equilibrium.
Being the administrator of the Holy Shitters Daily Kos group I’m excited to share important poop news! Poop, after all, doesn’t get the attention it deserves. As such, there is a show opening in NYC that is of special interest to our religion.
What if the solution to climate change, world peace, and self-love was the one thing no one wanted to talk about? Professor Oscar von Shtein was going to give a thrilling FREDx Talk on the Classics, until Shawn “The Puru” Shafner took over the controls. Forced to explain why we feel the way we do about doo, now Oscar must face his own shit and save the day, before it starts to smell. Fascinating, hilarious, and a little bit uncomfortable, An Inconvenient Poop is a musical, one-man show. Breaking the potty taboo, it inspires audiences to take responsibility for our shit—literal, personal, communal—so we can liberate it, hold it to the light, and transform it from waste to resource. Join a revolution pushing for change from the bottom up, and proudly declare “I’m a pooper!”
Here is a “taste” of what you can expect if you’re one of the lucky few who get a ticket.
Tickets are going like diarrhea!
The Poop Project was founded by Shawn. I’ve met him. We’ve touched base from time to time as our paths seem to “naturally” flow together . He’s a talented and very intelligent guy. I guess you could say he “really knows his shit”. He’s not farting around with this stuff either. He’s been talking shit for quite some time. I can assure you we’ve had some pretty shitty conversations together too.
When you’re Poop John the First of the Church of the Holy Shitters you notice people like this and you don’t flush them. He has a wonderful message nobody likes to hear but needs to be listened to by everybody. So I’m just letting this flow out to all of you. Flush it along. And, by all means, if you’re anywhere near New York City and can make one of these shows I’d highly recommend it.
