Speaking of toilets, last year there was a review of fish-induced keriorrhea. I had to look that one up myself. It turns out there are a bunch of fish that store large amounts of waxy substances in their bodies, and if we eat them, the accumulation of the indigestible wax in our rectums, through consumption of these fish, engenders rectal discharges or leakage of orange or brownish-green oil.

Keriorrhea is greasy orange anal leakage. Keri is the greek word for wax.

The scientists were even nice enough to include a picture—though, sadly not in color. “…also highlighted the potential for embarrassment from stained clothing arising from the unanticipated passage of oil as an aerosol with flatulence…” So much potential for embarrassment, there have even been demonstrations demanding immediate government actions against the “fish-induced keriorrhea epidemic.”
