A lot of great things have come out of Bristol and being a proud Bristolian I thought this would be the right place to inform you of another of Bristols achievements.
In 1997 the Bristol Royal Infirmary developed the Bristol Stool Chart (BSC) or Bristol Stool Form scale (BSF scale) as a clinical assessment tool to better communicate and diagnose issues surrounding stools!
The chart goes from: type 1 - very hard to pass nut like poops, to type 7 too easy to pass water like poo, and all the stools in between. As with most toilet related things, usually the best thing to come from it is toilet related humour, and here the internet has helped refine the Bristol Stool Chart by giving them their own names which I will share some of the best with you here!!
T1 - Maltesers, ass goblins, bristol balls, marbles, the croquettes
T2 - Lion bar, The real Mccoy, monkey bread, Catapillar
T3 - Toffee Crisp, The Lincoln Log, Cracked sausage, Hot dogs
T4 - Ripple, Smooth criminal, Goldilocks poo, snake, the slippy
T5 - Clusters, Smelly seaweed, Bristol blobs, Amoeba
T6 - Bubbly, Lumpy fart, Fluffy poo, soft serve
T7 - Hot chocolate, Rancid river, fountain of poo, Jackson Pollock, The fire hose
If you are becoming more interested in your poo, read the blog post about what your poo says about your diet and health.
Whilst we are on the topic, here are a few other names for defecating:
Building a log cabin
Coiling a steamer
Cooking a brown carrot
Dropping the kids off at the pool
Full moon over troubled waters

Making a deposit in the porcelain bank
