Cheeky Green Ad

What more can you say about this ad by China's Green Family Youth Association of Environmental Protection...

Cheeky Green Ad

The group’s ads state “We want to arouse people’s caution about environmental protection through strong visual impact of psychological or even physical aversion.”

This no-holes-barred advertising campaign – named one of the “Best, Most Smart Ass Green Ads” by Earthfirst in 2008 – was meant to raise awareness over dumping raw sewage into rivers and streams.

Translation: Do Not Squirt / Sit (apparently)

Manure… An interesting fact

Manure: In the 16th and 17th centuries, everything had to be transported by ship and it was also before commercial fertilizer’s invention, so large shipments of manure were common.

It was shipped dry, because in dry form it weighed a lot less than when wet, but once water (at sea) hit it, it not only became heavier, but the process of fermentation began again, of which a by product is methane gas. As the stuff was stored below decks in bundles you can see what could (and did) happen. Methane began to build up below decks and the first time someone came below at night with a lantern, BOOOOM!

Several ships were destroyed in this manner before it was determined just what was happening After that, the bundles of manure were always stamped with the term “Ship High In Transit” on them, which meant for the sailors to stow it high enough off the lower decks so that any water that came into the hold would not touch this volatile cargo and start the production of methane.

Thus evolved the term ”S.H.I.T.” (Ship High In Transport) which has come down through the centuries and is in use to this very day.

Alas the story is untrue – the word shit is much older, showing up in written works as far back as the 14th century. According to our learned friends at Wikipedia “The word is likely derived from Old English, having the nouns scite (dung, attested only in place names) and scitte (diarrhoea), and the verb scītan (to defecate, attested only in bescītan, to cover with excrement); eventually it morphed into Middle English schītte (excrement), schyt (diarrhoea) and shiten (to defecate), and it is virtually certain that it was used in some form by preliterate Germanic tribes at the time of the Roman Empire.”

Shit Box on Firebox

Shit Box, along with Ploo and Little Jack's Box, are now also available on Firebox:

Shit Box
Cardboard Crapper

"Poos. We all do them (except Her Maj, of course). The trouble is, dropping Mr Brown and the kids off at the pool is nigh on impossible when you’re enjoying the great outdoors. Yes, you can make like a bear and shit in the woods, but curling a log straight onto the ground feels a bit, well, dirty.

Enter, with a snigger, a nudge and a somewhat aghast face, the Shit Box. As you can see, this charmingly named creation is a lightweight portable cardboard toilet, made specifically for outdoor use. Available in two sizes, the 14” original and a smaller ‘Little Jack’ version for nippers, it’s ideal for festival fans, campers, Portaloo-less builders, fishermen and kids caught short on long journeys.

Flat-packed, the Shit Box pops open to become a rigid but comfy loo into which you can drop your fudge, again and again, without making a mess or gassing everyone within a 5 mile radius. That’s because it comes with 10 biodegradable poo bags. Genius! Simply pop one inside, lay your cable, remove the whole shebang, tie up the bag and shove it in your best mate’s sleeping bag… sorry, we mean dispose of it responsibly.

Yes, we suppose you could hunt down the nearest fast food emporium for a quick McShit with lies but, as well as being unethical, it’s probably not as hygienic. Besides, ejecting a bum cigar in a restaurant is fraught with danger: no loo roll, weak flush, pebble-dashed bowl. You know the score. Plus the Shit Box doubles up as handy stool (forgive the pun) and comes in a rather fetching shoulder bag for easy portability.

Okay, so squatting on a cardboard box isn’t the most luxurious way to lose your Bungle’s fingers, but it certainly does the job when you’re touching cloth in the middle of nowhere. To use the vernacular of today’s festival goer, we think it’s the shit. By the way, if you think we’re trying to shoehorn in as many pooey euphemisms as possible, you’d be right. But when a product is this brilliant, nothing we say is going to make a difference. We’d give it ten minutes if we were you…

Four different versions available!"

"For all you hikers, campers and other outdoor adventurers comes perhaps the most useful piece of gear ever – the $hit Box, aka the Cardboard Crapper.

The Cardboard Crapper is just what you guessed – an environmentally friendly porta-potty for those times when even a rest stop is out of the question. All you have to do is pop up the box, unfold it, and insert a biodegradable poo bag to get up and running.

The charmingly named creation is made specifically for outdoor use and ideal for festival fans, campers, Portaloo-less builders, fisherman and anyone caught short on long journeys.

So, the next time you go camping and don’t want to squat in the bushes, you’ll be forever grateful for this not exactly hi-tech invention. Available in two sizes, the 14” original and a smaller ‘Little Jack’ version that comes pink for girls and a blue for boys. (about $23 USD).

Pretty smart!"
