Many, perhaps most married couples keep harmless little secrets from each other.
But one woman, writing in an anonymous confessions forum on Reddit, shared the grim story of how she discovered her husband’s bizarre private “collection,” and it’s more than slightly weird.
“While cleaning out the kitchen pantry,” she wrote, “I was dusting the top shelf, and noticed the clanging of jars up there.
“So I got out the step ladder and up there is fourteen jars filled to the brim with diarrhoea and sealed with lids."
The jars appeared to have been arranged in order of consistency, “from brown water to a thick black sludge”.
She made the mistake of unscrewing the lids of one of the jars to find out what was inside. “The smell was so bad I can still feel it burning the back of my throat,” she says.
She was aware that her hubby suffered from IBS, she says, but is “lost for words as to why he would poo into jars”.
Reddit’s commenters were divided on the gruesome story.
Some insisted the tale was so revolting it had to be made up, while others theorised that he might be saving up his poo to send it off to a specialist to help with his IBS.
That’s not a particularly likely explanation, though, as stool samples have to be sent off for analysis fairly promptly and doctors generally provide a specialised container for the purpose.
One witty Redditor, summarising the thread for impatient readers, simply wrote: “Woman used step ladder to find stool”.
Some of those commenting, including a few with prison experience, said that the disgusting poo collection had a very real explanation.
“It's 100% real,” wrote one. “People use this nasty method to make a homemade drug called Butt Hash or Jenkem.
"You ferment s*** in a jar and sniff it to get high."
