“I power walked so powerfully I got the runs!”

March 4th, 2014 · 56 comments

So, this happened.
To the 'power walker' in the black hoodie and sunglasses who POOPED behind this AC unit on the morning of February 28th. I just wanted to let you know that I saw your take your dump. You may want to choose a better spot the next time you feel the urge to go. P.S. Don't litter please. Next time take the tissue you wiped with.

And Dani in Texas…thanks for sharing?

    Hey, at least they brought their own TP.

    Wait a minute. With the PS at the bottom, there was tissue involved? This was premeditated. That is a whole different level!

      Meh. Some people carry around facial tissues pretty much wherever they go.

      I’m one of them, at least if I’m wearing a coat or jacket. I don’t really “power walk”, so I’m not sure whether I’d have a pack on me if I was dressed for sad, middle-aged-white-person “athletic” pursuits. Probably, tho. Just in case! But… not particularly in case of this. Ew.

      My brother has extremely bad allergies. in the past he has carried toilet paper in his pocket to whip his nose with. Having tp on you doesn’t mean it’s premeditated.

      I carry a tissue with me when I run, especially in colder weather. I also carry a flushable wipe and an antibacterial hand wipe on longer runs, just in case I have to use a portapotty or park restroom- you can’t just trust that they will always be stocked with TP!

      I’m sorry – I really didn’t mean to offend anyone that carries tissues. I am more use to seeing people use handkerchiefs over tissue paper, so it seemed premeditated. Maybe on camp trips you bring tp… I have to wonder though, is it more likely that they were using this for blowing their nose, or was this something that happened before, so they now come prepared?

      I have yet to see anybody under 60 still use handkerchiefs to wipe their nose (possible exception: hippie hipsters).

      You’re carrying around snot and germs in a cloth..why? Memories of germs gone past?

      Agreed with Kermit. The only person I’ve seen use a handkerchief is my granddad. I’ve always thought it was pretty gross (though I’ve never said anything ofc).

      Yes, Rush, they do. I’m sure some do it thinking that it’s more environmentally friendly. And some do cause they think it looks classier.

      And some do because their wives insist on buying them for them instead of investing in pocket tissues.

    Someone pooped behind the AC unit and it’s the TISSUE that you’re concerned about? Dude, priorities.

    Maybe you should provide some bags so they can clean up after themselves.

      You said it, Poltergeist. Only here would we find a serious debate about indoor/outdoor cats one day, a discussion of sugar the next, a treastise on vampire killing after that, and now poop poetry.

      And, with rare exception, the commenters have good grammar and spelling skills and rarely descend to YOUR GAY level insults.

      Best comment section ever. Anyone else really missing Redheadwithglasses right now?

      And toilets were not yet invented,
      They dumped their loads,
      Along the roads,
      And walked away contented!

    I was both disgusted and amused to discover that a jogging friend of mine always carries TP with him because he poops on his runs quite often. He even has some favorite spots on his regular routes. I didn’t really believe him until his wife independently confirmed his story. He does not however live in Texas

    I knew a guy in college who was a long distance runner.

    He actually told me “many a sewer in new haven contains a pair of my underwear”.

    2 miles is enough for me. No need to poop myself.

    Might have a serial pooper on the loose. He gets drawn in from the rush of it. Right now hes plotting the next one. There’s probably other AC turds out there that nobody even knows of.

    And this is why as tempted as I have been to learn to run a half or full marathon I just don’t quite have that commitment because of the potential of getting runners runs. Think I will just stick with smaller jogs in areas where there are stores and restaurants with public wash rooms available.

      I’ve done several half-marathons, with times ranging from 2:30 (jogging) to 3:45 (walking). Never once had to poop. And they had portable restrooms along the way anyway.

    Well, my bowels exploded with a mighty splash about halfway through my run
    And the first AC that I came across, that’s where
    I bared my buns
    Runs on the run, runs on the run.
    And the ice-cream man and Fed-Ex Dan were staring when I was done
    With my runs on the run
    My runs on the run
