over the years, people have said "i need to take a shit". i do not find that to be accurate. you are not taking one, you are leaving it. maybe i am nieve, but i have never seen anyone pulling their poop out of the toilet and throwing it on the ground. even in philadelphia, the dirty grimy place that it is. i do not understand and was hoping for discussion to realize how this phrase came into being. discuss. if you feel the urge to.
