Anonymous reported: Rumpus, I dropped a poo today in the bathroom of Sloane Physics lab that looked like an eggplant cross-breeded with a soft pretzel (salted, of course). This worries me because I have not eaten anything over the past week save triscuits and the crumbled bleu cheese in Dport dining hall. I'm too embarrassed to tell my master because I'm afraid I'll be ridiculed. Where should I leave it, other than the Saybrook laundry room?
Thank you so much for your question. Just how you wouldn’t flush a baby down the toilet after an unexpected home birth, a poo of this magnitude should not be sent down the University sewer system. Yale has a little-known hazardous waste disposal system that is easy to use and safe for the environment. Simply place your poo in a manila envelope and address it to P. O. Box 209007.

Best of luck!!
