People All Saying The Same Thing After Footage Of The Biggest Poo On Record Resurfaces

People All Saying The Same Thing After Footage Of The Biggest Poo On Record Resurfaces

The largest known human poo has faced backlash online, with everyone left saying the same thing. You can see it in all its glory in the clip below:

Despite the 9th century Viking's poo measuring a whopping 20cm long and 5cm wide, resurfaced footage from Channel 4 show Britain's Most Historic Towns has left viewers far from impressed.

In the clip, Professor Alice Robert gets her hands on the historic excrement, commenting that its size shows that Vikings' diets were high in fibre.

However, if you wanted to try and break a world record, then this one might just be one of the easiest and most hassle-free to break. Surely not much preparation is needed?

Redditers certainly think they have the potential to drop more than just a couple of kids off at the pool and potentially give the Viking a good run for his money.

The poo, called the Lloyds Bank Coprolite, was first uncovered in the UK in 1972 by archaeologists from the York Archaeological Trust.

50 years on, and social media users believe someone has definitely done a bigger number two since.

However, the man's diet of meat and bread with a side of 'several hundred parasitic worms' is probably not the healthiest way to go if you want to try and take home the record-breaking title.

Summing up what many viewers thought upon viewing the resurfaced footage, on a Reddit post which has since been removed, one user reflected: "Ten thousand Redditors say, 'Psshht. Amateur'."

Another wrote: "For real, my first thought was 'I’ve s**t bigger than that'.

"If this is the biggest s**t on record, I’m sure the biggest unrecorded s**t was massive."

A user evidently knowledgable on the measurements used to quantify faeces commented: "That's maybe 10 courics.. that's rookie numbers."

"Seven courics at best," another responded.

The poo was discovered when the York Archaeological Trust were excavating an area which later became a branch of Lloyds Bank, and was placed inside a glass box and put on display at JORVIK Viking Centre in York.

Alas, the poo was nearly destroyed in 2003 when a teacher on a school trip visit bumped into the display, shattering the box and the block of faeces into pieces.

However, the valuable artefact was thankfully restored by officials.

Other Redditers reflected on how amused the 9th century viking would be to know his woodland s**t had gone on to amount such fame.

"Imagine shitting in the woods only to have your turd preserved and showcased in a museum almost a millennial later," one joked.

However, bluntly, pretty graphically and with absolutely no shame, a final user declared: "I’ve s**t logs that have ripped my hole, this would tickle it at best."

So, if you want to try and curl one out that can overtake the 9th century viking's as the 'most exciting piece of excrement' paleoscatologists have ever seen, and one 'as irreplaceable as the Crown Jewels', then next time you go for a number two, don't forget the tape measure before flushing.
