​People Are Pooing Backwards So They Can Snack On The Toilet

People are now pooing backwards so that they can multi-task and snack while on the toilet - the work of true geniuses, or a sign that the internet's taken things too far?


Many people might take their phone with them to the toilet to pass the time watching weird videos on YouTube or getting embroiled in a Twitter debate.

But some people have started taking snacks with them - and sitting backwards so that they can use the cistern as a makeshift table.


According to the Metro, it all began when TikTok user @amyywoahh shared the unusual 'life hack' with her 11.7 million followers, promising it would change their lives forever.

In the caption, she wrote: "Life hack: take a [poo emoji] BACKWARDS."

Her video - which has racked up 3.4 million views - shows her setting up the toilet with an iPad, a box of brownie bites, a huge bag of crisps and a drink.

She then sits on the bog back-to-front to show others how it's done, drinking and eating away happily.

She says: "You have been pooping wrong.

"What I want you to do is poop backwards.

"Get your favourite snacks, get your favourite show and that's how you poop. It's the best of all times. You just sit there jamming and pooping."


The clip has been liked 519,000 likes and 12,000 comments, with mixed reactions.

Some said they didn't fancy the idea of eating where they, ahem, you know - while others suggested it might be the cleanest place in the house.

Many other people have even joined the revolution, sharing TikTok videos to show off their own toilet table.

One person called Karla (@texastraveler123, and is also on Instagram at @texastraveler123) gave it a go, sharing a clip of her making a bowl of cereal on the toilet.

However, one doctor commenting on Amy's original video has advised against it, saying it could end with haemorrhoids if people end up sitting on the loo for too long.

Dr Aydin, from Turkey, wrote: "Your show should end in five minutes, otherwise you could get haemorrhoids."

Another user warned of the risks of E.Coli, a type of bacteria that normally lives in your intestines, saying: "E. Coli has entered the chat."


You're probably best just sticking to meal times at the table - or bed, of course, which seems like a much cosier prospect than the loo.
