    I rather like the idea of The Standard being second on the list of chattering sites after Public Address. It isn't one of our primary objectives but still nice to know.

    Yeah it's a good outcome for you guys too, impressive.

    Sorry Ben but getting back to the all important discussion on coprolite or ancient shit.
    I really like the idea than ordinary old shit gets elevated to a latin word when it gets really really old.

    What happens when coprolite hits the fan ?

    How about Copralitic?
    Or am I a coupla coconuts shy
    of a palm treeā€¦

    Ian you are a thousand coconuts shy of a palm tree !
    That is your gift and what is most interesting about you.

    And Copralitic is a most excellent word but what do you make of coprolactic. A sort of don't take any shit approach maybe?

    The fan breaks into very small pieces.

    Coprolalia lalalala - I can't hear you...*

    ...what do you make of coprolactic

    I'm guessing very old chocolate milk...
    definitely not copacetic...

    event horizon manglement...
    or maybe in a cosmic sense it's what comes
    out the other side of coprophagic black holes...
    an inverse amalgam of galactic shit...

    Don't shit me Ian but I think you are onto something - I like the idea that black holes are the anus of the universe - all those scientists thinking they are some kind of gateway to a parallel universe and it turns out they were just taking the crap.

    An idea explored by Canadian comics genius Chester Brown in his classic Ed the Happy Clown:

    Ed is imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit . . . While in prison, an unnamed character finds himself unable to stop defecating. His faeces fill up the jail, engulfing Ed. When he emerges, he finds the head of his penis has been replaced with the head of a miniature Ronald Reagan from Dimension X, a place much like Ed's but in which the people are considerably smaller. The dimension had a waste problem, which they tried to solve by dumping it into a hole to another dimension. The hole turned out to be the anus of the man who couldn't stop defecating. Reagan's body was left in Dimension X, and the professor, who was the discoverer of the inter-dimensional portal, travels to Ed's dimension to find the head, eventually making contact with the authorities of Ed's world.

    You never forget great art, however scatological.
