Microbiome Awareness Month! Gifting with Poop Emojis

Looking for the perfect gift this holiday season?

How about something graced with a poop emoji?

We can easily find poop emojis shaped as pillows, on coffee mugs, slippers, pajamas, and so much more. But if you want to up your game this holiday season, perhaps do what the Japanese do and gift a poop-shaped gold charm for that special someone?

According to Emojipedia, the definitive guide to emoji, describes the poop icon as “a pile of poo that is shaped like a soft-serve ice cream,” and its original design seems to have been inspired by a 1980s Japanese manga series called Dr. Slump that was filled with puns and bathroom jokes.

Unlikely as it may seem, poop-shaped gold charms have long been popular good luck tokens in Japan.

Enjoy this season and perhaps, the poop emoji will top your gift list this year. Or at least, read our poop emoji classic blog post.
