Contest #786 – The Pooseum, Richmond, Tasmania, Australia

The creator of this museum describes the beginning thus: “I read a story about a small caterpillar being able to launch its poo up to 1.5 m away. Now that’s an achievement, wouldn’t you agree? A person 1.8 m tall would have to eject their poo 70 m to compete! Intrigued, I started to do some research on animal faeces, and soon the idea for a poo museum was born.”

The site has grown to include 50 exhibits and 40 “poo-tube” videos. Of course there is a gift shop, called “Poo-trid Shop”

Contest #779 – Buddha Dordenma Statue, Kuenselphodrang, Bhutan

First, an apology. One of our contestants pointed out, quite fairly, that the hint was written without proper level of respect to the Buddha and those who follow his teachings. For that lack of respect of the culture and the Buddha, I seriously apologize.
