What on earth is a poop knife? A knife for poop? Well, basically, that's exactly what it is. If you poop "big" turds, this handy knife can be used to cut it up. It's that simple but(t) let's be honest, it's a bit strange no? It all started when a Reddit user named LearnedButt made a confession on the platform that said: My family poops big. Maybe it's genetic, maybe it's our diet, but everyone births giant logs of crap. If anyone has laid a mega-poop, you know that sometimes it won't flush. It lays across the hole in the bottom of the bowl and the vortex of draining water merely gives it a spin as it mocks you. Growing up, this was a common enough occurrence that our family had a poop knife. It was an old rusty kitchen knife that hung on a nail in the laundry room, only to be used for that purpose. It was normal to walk through the hallway and have someone call out "hey, can you get me the poop knife"? I thought it was standard kit. You have your plunger, your toilet brush, and your poop knife.

And that's not all. Some families SHARE a poop knife. The user added that the poop knife was in the laundry room and not the bathroom because "we only had one poop knife, and the laundry room was central to all three bathrooms. I have no idea why we didn't have three poop knives. All I know is that we didn't. We had the one. Possibly because my father was notoriously cheap about the weirdest things. So yes, we shared our poop knife."
