"You poop more than anyone!"

Many countries don't have enough toilets. Not good! So an group called International Development Enterprises (IDE) helps by installing new sewage systems in these places.

That IS good! After all, in places like Cambodia, only one person in five has access to a toilet. But I still felt bad for a man there who got a new toilet and started using it right away.

Then during a village meeting, it was announced that he'd done something special:

You produce more poop 
than anyone in the village."


This news story from the BBC also has this photo of an aid worker explaining that if people always poop in the woods outside of their village, they are surrounding themselves with grumpies!
