I wonder if they told “The Ladies of Manure” what that brown substance was intended to simulate before they shot?
You know, I like the idea of composting, and I do think the way we process human waste in this country could probably be improved. However, if one more hippie tries to sell me on composting human waste, I’m going to start having it delivered to their house.
Then there is THIS shit…
Fertile Earth Foundation is an environmental nonprofit based in Miami mostly known for our composting initiatives. We’ve been teaching people to rethink their waste for over 4 years. For those of you who don’t know what composting is, it’s basically turning organic waste into rich fertile soil. Organic waste is stuff like kitchen scraps, newspaper, yard trimmings, manure, even your very own poop! Anything that is not plastic, metal, or glass can be composted
During a Fertile Earth Workshop last year, one of our volunteers asked, “How did we get so far removed from our poop?” And it got us thinking… How many people think about their poop as often as we do? How often do you ponder your #2? It tells us a lot about our health and what we need to eat, if we are dehydrated and so on. Plus, did you know there are safe ways to turn even our waste into Humanure? Yes, that is composted human poop! Your poop could be turned into to super rich black gold! Ok, maybe we’re grossing you out. Let’s change the subject. How often do you think about sex? Or beautiful women? This project is a tasteful synergy of those 2 things: The Ladies of Manure 2013 Calendar.
The clip below is the Kickstarter appeal video for the (funded!!!) “Ladies of Manure 2013 Calender.” Yup, it got funded. People gave money to the brown-speckled pin-up hippies, in a whole world of free Internet porn, a large portion of which I’m sure could meet any coprophiliac’s needs.
Just so we’re perfectly clear, they’re talking about human shit. And this is a pin-up calender of women modeling in simulated (let’s hope) human shit. And this not intended to be ironic, or post-modern, or whatever… it’s just shitty.
Or, to hear them tell it, the calendar is a “great way to start the New Year: with beautiful women and a fresh look at Manure!”
