I know I wouldn't be the first person to lament the internet and social media's influence on oversharing. But there's oversharing, and then there's talking about, taking pictures of and videotaping human feces. Internet, why are you doing this to us?
Barely a day goes by when STFU Parents doesn't feature some kind of parental heinousness involving a child, potty training and a profile picture. And it's not just kids: the lamesters at Lamebook have even gotten in on the action. We're talking about grown-ass people posting status updates about their bowel movements. And today on Buzzfeed, someone's linking to the "most adorable" video of a kid showing you his poop ever.
If you don't like extreme close-ups of kidshit, probably don't watch this:
Oh, how I yearn for the days--really, to be able to remember such days--when the scariest thing my parent-friends might show me would be a video of their boring-ass family vacation to Colonial Williamsburg. People of the world: poop is not adorable.
I'm trying to imagine some old-school science fiction film where the future-thinking scientist says, "And in THE FUTURE, people will ride in flying cars! And have a cure for every disease! And post intimate, detailed accounts of the bowel movements of themselves and others on a world-wide network of computers!"
Readers, do you also feel as though we have gone a poop too far?
