No, this is not about the current occupant of the White House.

It’s about less offensive things, things like shit and fatbergs and boogers-in-books and genital-shaped flora.

Atlas Obscura has put together a compendium of disgusting things it reported on during the year just ended.

  • What researchers are finding in centuries-old latrines from Denmark, Turkey and other parts of the ancient world.
  • Nasal mucous (boogers) pressed into library books.
  • Penis-shaped mushrooms. (What’s gross about that?)
  • Fatbergs – globules of fats, oils and assorted trash clogging sewer pipes around the world.

There’s more… and more descriptive elucidations at Atlas Obscura.
