American Asks The Internet 'How To Poop' After Moving To Australia
When an American travels to Australia and vice versa, one of the big things they'll notice is the bathrooms.
Not only do cubicles in the US have terrifyingly short doors where you can nearly see everyone doing their business, but also the toilets are very different. Their bowls are much larger and contain a hell of a lot more water.
While it's weird for us to see, it's similarly strange for Americans to come to the Land Down Under where the bowls are narrower and contain less water.
This really shouldn't be an issue, however a man who recently moved hemispheres has found himself in a bit of a pickle about 'how to poop' in Australia.
Writing on Reddit, the unknown man said: "So this is a bit embarrassing but I don't know where else to turn.
"I just moved to Aus from the USA and I'm having a really difficult time shitting in your toilets without leaving shit marks all over the inside of the bowl.
"Theres very little water in all the toilets here and I'm wondering if theres a trick to sitting on the toilet which I'm not aware of. I end up having to use a toilet brush to clean the toilet after every poo and flush again which seems to defeat the entire purpose of water saving water toilets.
"I take Metamucil so i don't know what else I could really do regarding my diet."
So, the most likely scenario is that because old mate has been used to taking a dump in a swimming pool, he's not used to skiddies.
Not to worry though, he's asked the internet and surely they will provide the right answer. Oh wait, no, he's been roasted and taken on a while banter ride.
"Improve your aim, in Australia mate, we shit with precision. You got to lift your game," suggested one user.
"Take some toilet paper and shit into your hand before gracefully placing it in the bowl," said another.
A third gave a different suggestion, adding: "Which way are you facing when you're perched on the throne? Being that you're down under now, you should be sitting facing the cistern. It's known as the Reverse Kanga."
The Reddit user hilariously responded with: "Yeah sitting forward. this is the advice I was looking for, will implement tomorrow."
You can only imagine the American bloke getting all excited about trying the 'Reverse Kanga'.
