Keep it Weird: Excretions and Secretions

Sep 25, 2009

by Michelle Traub

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

Creativity just oozes from Etsians’ pores, and I suppose it was inevitable that in this Keep it Weird series, I would need to address our many other discharges as well. Our bodies are compulsive makers of all sorts of products; we merely need to look inward for crafting inspiration. The artistic innovators below find beauty and whimsy in the flowing tide of our own biology, reminding us that nothing is weirder than human nature.

Begin the quest for self-discovery with The Deuce Ring by metalsugar, Pink Sick Print by pinkytoast, and Happy Bladder in Fused Glass by AzureFire. Check out the Related Items below for more strange scatology.

    An unnanmed and deceased relative of mine worked in a medical lab as a head honcho. Everyone was afraid of him. One day, a lab monkey pooped in his bald head, and he didn't know it was there. Nobody told him all day, because they were all afraid to say anything. How's that for cosmic justice- POOP REVENGE of the LAB MONKEY! Love your post!
