To See or Not to See (There Is No Question)

I’ve seen this issue come up occasionally. I have heard the question dealt with on talk radio a few times and bloggers sometimes argue the pros and cons. Oddly enough, most people seem to have strong opinions one way or the other.


The question: Is it necessary, advisable, and/or appropriate to ascertain the effectiveness of your wiping maneuvers in order to determine when the job requires no further action on your part, i.e., should you review the results of your final wipe before reaching for the little chrome lever?

You might think that the debate would hinge on the issue of cleanliness. Logically, for me anyway, subjective definitions of the word “clean” and effective strategies for attaining a state of clean should be the only points of contention. I guess if it were that simple, there would be no public airing of grievances, accusations of negligence and incidents of indignant anger that keep popping up.


I figured it was time to lay the issue to rest, so I compiled and condensed the most commonly occurring points of view from both sides of the debate; two fictional men will present these arguments here in first-person format.
Neither of the imaginary antagonists are women. Why? Because based on the limited data at hand, it appears that most women do look before they leap and most are horrified to learn that many men do not, therefore, they skew the statistics unfairly in one direction. Besides, Jilly tells me that most women will have stopped reading this post after the second paragraph, when it became obvious that the subject is even worse than shit; it is about getting it out of your crevice.
I don’t understand that position at all considering that sphincters, rectums and human waste are a never ending source of entertainment. Anyway, my interpretations of the two primary points of view are as follows.


Position 1:
I heave my final log and I retrieve an enormous amount of wood-pulp-based-cleaning-material from the spool hanging beside the bathroom fixture on which I sit. I drag the haphazard wad of absorbent, and highly abrasive, material across my danger zone.

Things get a little murky at this point. I’m not sure of the mechanisms involved but it is during this scraping maneuver that thousands of miniature butt gnomes are deposited in my crack.
These tiny gnomes diligently search every nook and cranny. They set to work in a frantic effort to restore my danger zone to a pre-soiled condition. It is for this reason that I feel no need to look at the fruits of my labor. I have complete trust in my gnomes and as far as I know, they have never let me down, ever! Besides, if I were to look at that wad of paper and actually see my own deu deu, I would vomit.
I think people who look at their own dung are snobbish nasty freaks. I finish up, spray myself down with Axe Body Spray, and then leave the house for a few hours.


Position 2:

I have deposited my final offering and I retrieve a conservative quantity of wood-pulp-based-cleaning-material from the spool hanging beside the sanitary porcelain bowl on which I sit.
I pass a neatly folded pad of luxuriant Charmin (with Aloe and Vitamin E) gently but firmly across my holy ground, and then repeat.

Of course, there is no need to view the results of my first or second swipe since I am educated. I understand the dynamics of digested animal and vegetable waste. I also know that in my crack, there will be no army of butt gnomes to do my dirty work for me. It is my mess, and it is up to me to clean it up. It is for this reason that I look.
More often than not, on the third swipe I find the task has been satisfactorily completed to current cultural standards. Sometimes though, instead of unblemished Charmin there in my hand, I see vile filth and I am grateful that I performed a visual inspection. I repeat the process with visual examination until that sucker is polished squeaky clean.
People who fail to examine their work are nasty repulsive freaks. My ass is a temple and I have trained it never to offend; I will not desecrate it with dingleberries. I finish up and feel no need to saturate myself with over-the-counter stink abatement products or stuff my pockets with potpourri to camouflage the fetid vapors that would otherwise breach the thin fabric barrier between my ass and my fellow human beings.


I will now sit in Judgment:

In the case of onlookers versus non-lookers, I rule that personal sensitivities are doing a great disservice to personal hygiene. Bottom line, you must look. Unless your body excretes waste like Spock’s coffin in The Wrath of Khan, which I believe is not possible, you do what you have to do to get that thing clean enough to use as a serving dish for Thanksgiving turkey. Use a belt sander if you have to; just get the damn thing clean.

I can think of only a few scenarios where not looking is ok. Departure from even one of these requirements is a deal killer.

- Your spouse, partner, or date does not perform visual confirmation either and you live on another planet.

- You wash your undergarments in your own (non-public) washing machine or you take them down to the river on the end of a long stick and beat them against the rocks.

- You engage in no public activity that might surreptitiously cause your cheeks to spread.


If you have any lingering doubts, there’s no need to take my word for it, ask a granny, any granny. I’m glad I could help.

As much as I'd like to claim I'm no slave to the excessive cleanliness of modern society, I like having a (relatively) clean ass. Realistically, you don't need to look. We haven't evolved for millions of years only to fall prey to murderous bacteria and what have you if you're careless with the wiping. Still, I like to look, and I like the TP for bunghole to remain white after the last swipe, and my filthy bits, ass included, are the only parts I wash thoroughly when I bathe.

Only a trust in you kept me reading past paragraph 2. Only a man would consider this subject as only a man would realise that there are non-lookers in this world. I am amazed to discover the possibility, even, of non-lookers. Although it would explain some of the nastier aspects of laundry I have dealt with in the past. As a woman I can tell you that where I suspected some men were dirty no-good stinky s.o.b's I had no real evidence for this conclusion. You have provided me with that evidence and for that I am grateful. I am also grateful ( as I am sure your Jilly is ) and pleased to learn that you are not to be associated with the above category. I now need to lie down in a darkened room. S

Hi Paulo, it is true that the human species has done quite well living alongside their mountainous piles of waste. I even heard recently of a prominent MD who claims there is nothing inherently dangerous about eating spoonfuls of one’s own shit. However, it does have a powerful stink and that’s enough for me to rationalize the burning of skidmarked underwear.

Hey Glamourpuss, I have a feeling you’ll be back to read the rest of it. Nobody can resist the siren call of toilet humor. Also, I believe you are correct, it is Charles 1st in the second to last jpeg. You do know your kings.

Hi Hammer, what the hell have you been eating, lawn mower clippings? Whatever your secret is, I would at least like a hint.

Hi Goncalo, at the end of a long stick, maybe.

Hey Cheesy, as long as they do their dirty business downstream, it should be ok. Also, regarding your question “am I now not female,” the answer is no. The rules are clear on this subject, you read past the second paragraph, you are a man.

Hi Jazz, are you saying that some people poop in their refrigerator? It is an intriguing idea, I’ll give it a try and report back later.

Hi Sarah, it is one of those dirty secrets that men hide from women. I’ll likely be branded a traitor for spilling the beans.

Hey Orhan, it’s never too early to retch.

Hi Big Brother, bidets freak me out in a big way. I understand the logic of them but I have a hard time drinking from public water fountains, much less hovering over a shit caked spray nozzle and getting my ass soaking wet. I’m sure my mental images of those butt sprinklers probably have little to do with the reality of it, but still…

Hi Stucco, even well soaped orbital buffers cannot wash away the truth, we have always been, and will always be, nothing but shit flinging apes. If only the alleged Eve hadn’t eaten the alleged apple and pissed off an alleged deity, maybe our destiny would have been hanging out for an eternity in a nudist colony.

Hi Scott from Oregon, the bidet is a mystery to me. Because I do not understand it, I fear it. I view it as an unholy union between a water fountain and a urinal. During sessions on public toilets, I have employed the courtesy flush while still sitting and had nasty crap-water spray my ass, apparently due to faulty engineering. I imagine a bidet doing something like that, times ten. Maybe someday I’ll have it all sufficiently explained to me.

Hey Judith, I have had the same experience with cheep motel toilet paper. My best guess is recycled newspapers mixed with fiberglass insulation. I’ve been stuck in jobsite port-o-cans on a few occasions with nothing but magazines with slick, shiny pages with which to do my business. Not only is the surface too slick to do the least bit of cleaning, the folds in the paper will cut you like a rusty old steak knife if you are not careful. I learned quickly that you have to work the paper like a piece of leather to soften it up before using on your delicate parts.

Evil Spaaaawwwwwwwwwwk! I don’t know what I would do without scat to make fun of, the world would be a much sadder place. Regarding your little stomach mishap, that happens to me when I have to clean up piles of dog crap. The worst is Golden Retriever dung. Those dogs lay down huge logs that look distressingly human-like. I retrieved one from my yard a few years ago that had to weigh at least five pounds. It was heavy and hot with a viscous coating of colon slime all over, nasty.

Hi Kara, we can talk about shoes. I prefer shoes with slick soles that don’t track mud all over the place. That’s pretty much the extent of my opinion about shoes. We can talk about penises too. Other than my own, I have no use for them whatsoever. That is the extent of my feelings towards penises. Well, nothing else to talk about now except dung. My earliest memory of dung is some time between my third and fourth birthday. I walked into the bathroom and found little brother inside the toilet going nuts with some manure that had been left by a grownup. He had the stuff smeared on and about his face and in particular, in his ears. He climbed out of the toilet with a wild grin on his face and he started chasing me. I credit him not only for my first memory of the stuff, but also for the anal retention that I live with on a day to day basis. My second memory of crap is….

Regarding the retriever story to evil spock slag, we have a timber wolf here in the job and the glistening description you gave reminded me of the turn of phrase that my co-workers use in the salvage yard (which 'fang' operates and patrols in) shovelling the waste here is a delicate operation on the asphalt which requires the skill of a surgeons hand, if done wrongly its disgustingly referred to as 'breaking the skin'. Im sure you guys feel better having shared that..

Hi Judith, the term “breaking the skin” is very similar to the words we used to describe what happens when you get onto a cow shit war and choose one to pitch that’s not quite crusty enough to hold together. “Cowpies” are, as many people are aware, much more dangerous to throw than “horse apples” as cowpies commonly have very liquid centers.

Hi Goncalo, a very long stick.

Blogger Sam, Problem-Child-Bride said...

Cowpies have the heft, it's true, but for a shit-flinging contest the only way to go is rabbit. One tiny pellet, launched from a rudimentary sling, can fell a full grown man and he will stay felled for up to a week, meaning you'll have loads of time to shave his eyebrows and write rudey things on his forehead in indelible ink.

Can you see the biblical analogy wot I made? Oh yup, the Noah story still has much to teach us.

Also, These tiny gnomes diligently search every nook and cranny.

How many nooks and crannies are there in your bumcrack?

And
Look - one must always, always look

Blogger slaghammer said...

Hi Sam, unfortunately, some of us have more crannies than others. Also, while rabbit pellets might have their uses, and cow pies are definitely more dangerous to handle, the results of a well flung bovine projectile is an awesome thing to behold.

Hey Judith, while my brothers and I would not hesitate to fling horse apples and even the occasional cow pie at one another, never, and I mean NEVER, would we ever do something so foul as to throw dog turds. Now that’s just gross. ;-)

Well, Slag, I should have known this was coming after the long male restroom etiquette debate... and after having straightened me out on the correct way to hang the tissue that performs the all important deed. I read all the way through, and I'm still a female, so far as I can 'tail'. I'm proud of you for doing the right thing. Somewhere, nearly 30 years ago, I was appalled to read, in a little book called The Happy Hooker, that men actually crawled out of bed leaving... well, as she called it, 'shit streaks on the sheets.' All I could think was, "and she slept with the filthy creep? ... and then told about it, too???" Yuk! You can certainly tell those crude dudes weren't taught proper 'technique' by their ma's. But, which is worse? Being negligent in teachinge proper clean up, or forgetting to teach your uncircumcised youngster (did I hear someone say they wanted to talk about pee pees??) to pull back the prepuce, before taking a leak. Course, that's another subject, just like the toilet paper issue, but I trust you can handle that one as sleekly as you handled the toilet paper conundrum. This is important stuff, Slag. You are picking up where lazy ma's left off! What would this stinking world come to, if you didn't step in? I bow to you, Brother. When all is said and done, this will be remembered in the Book of Life... 'cause they say cleanliness is next to Godliness, afterall.

Hi Rachet [sic], you are indeed an extremely accomplished ass wiper and I’m not surprised in the least that you agree with my assessment regarding the “look.” I have to say though, (Inside-Joke Alert!) I’m glad you didn’t claim five asses, that would have creeped me out beyond description.

Hi Madpotter, unfortunately, I am a sufferer of that most medieval of afflictions, the dreaded gout. Of the many, many, many, many, many things that I am no longer advised to consume, oats are right up there at the top of the list. I might still be able to indulge in a singular oat, but only for special occasions.

Hey Little Wing, with my own eyes I have witnessed skid marked underwear and I understand how that can happen. But just how absent minded would a person have to be to maintain an ass so inconceivably filthy that it would leave a trail on bed sheets? I understand there are people who have a great affinity for feces and I’ve even heard it described as “love mud,” but still, if a person is going out on a date, the least they could do is haul that keester into dry dock and scrape the barnacles before putting back out to sea.
Regarding your comment on prepuce management, I can’t offer much advice on the subject since I was “chopped” long before I had the mental faculties to either have an opinion or hold a grudge. I have to say that not having one does make for a remarkably uncomplicated bathroom experience.

Hi Anne, I’ve read the backs of those boxes and I’m pretty sure they were written by men. Besides, it’s too late for you, rules are rules and they can’t just be arbitrarily flaunted. Otherwise they would be recommendations. As a newly confirmed man, I want to be the first to tell you about Harbor Freight. They sell outlandishly cheap tools for every conceivable manly endeavor. I “recommend” you start with a sand-blasting cabinet and we’ll talk about belt sanders and MIG Welders next week.

Hi Little Wing, I can’t stand the smell of baby wipes, it’s like a baby-powdery diaper-ish Laundromat kind of stank that I can definitely do without.

Hi Milena, kitty litter and Scotch Guard ™ works pretty well too. My blog has lain fallow due to injury, but I’m working on a post even as I write this.
