For as long as man has walked the earth, so too has he pooped. And yet there is still so much to learn about our incredible ability, not just to squeeze shit out of our ass, but to do so so clandestinely that, with the exception of maybe one’s spouse or frat brothers, nobody’s the wiser. If you yearn to uncover the secrets of man’s oldest pasttime, then Dave Praeger’s new book, “Poop Culture: How America Is Shaped By Its Grossest National Product,” holds the key to your enlightenment. This “heavily researched analysis” is a scholarly work, not to be taken lightly. But if you enjoy bathroom humor and crave to be in the company of other likeminded folks (the types who refer to Praeger’s book party as a “butt mitvah” or a “debutt” or a “coming out party”), then join the author tonight at Galapagos Art Space in Williamsburg. In addition to intimate doody talk, enjoy short films and performances by Gabe and Jenny, Bobby Tisdale, Stuckey & Murray and Gregg Gethard. It’s sure to be an educational experience, providing way more than anyone could ever hope to learn about feces.
