Doggy Poo, the Ballet


Saw it last night with the kiddies. Based on the famous 1968 Korean children's book, Doggy Poo (no relation 2005's real-life Dog Poop Girl), here's a translation of "the touching story of a piece of poo who finds meaning and acceptance fertilising a dandelion" — Puppy Poo.

Koreans do not have the cultural hang-ups regarding this as do modern Anglo-Saxons, to the extent that one Canadian series of books explaining science to children, The Magic Schhol Bus, goes to far as to suggest that the digestive process ends at the large intestine. Korean children's books not only explore the topic, but celebrate it.

Oh, I don't know, but "Mr Hanky, the Christmas Poo," done by those class clowns at South Park seem to have come very close.

Mark, ich verstehe nicht.

Mr. Brandt, yes, but South Park pushes envelopes, while in Korea poo is mainstream.
