It looks like those two dudes behind Jenny Slate know something we don’t (and it wouldn’t be hard to know since she’s wearing the color of poop’s natural enemy). But that’s not the case since Jenny’s poop story isn’t a recent one.
Jenny Slate (aka the person currently doing Captain America) wrote a book with her dad Ron Slate called About the House. It’s a book about their house and stuff that happened inside it. Jenny and Ron talked about their book on an episode of NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday, and one of the things that happened inside said house was that Jenny once pooped her pants. That’s not exactly a book-worthy anecdote, since lots of kids poop their pants. But Jenny’s pooped pants were on purpose. Somewhere, TMI-enthusiast Lena Dunham just kicked herself for not thinking of that first.
Jenny writes that her mother told to clean her room, and when she was done, she made another mess that would require intensive cleaning.
“After cleaning my entire room and getting it to the point where my mother would find it acceptable, I sat on the rug in front of my bed and I [expletive] my pants on purpose. I couldn’t believe what I was doing as I was doing it. I remember feeling that this was really over the line, that it was a thing that my baby self would do and that I had certainly moved past it. The poop was soft and hot and really out of my body and really in my underpants. I remained calm.”
Jenny explains that her deliberate dookie was symbolic of her personality, aka someone who “let everything kind of fly out before I sort it, and it becomes a mess.” First describing poo like it’s a Pillsbury crescent roll, then painting us the mental picture of it flying out? If Jenny wanted About the House to land a spot on The Poo York Times best-sellers list, she’s going about it the right way.
