A lot of great things have come out of Bristol and being a proud Bristolian I thought this would be the right place to inform you of another of Bristol’s achievements.
In 1997 the Bristol Royal Infirmary developed the Bristol Stool Chart (BSC) or Bristol Stool Form scale (BSF scale) as a clinical assessment tool to better communicate and diagnose issues surrounding stools!
The chart categories poo from type one which is very constipated, hard to pass nut like poos, to type seven which is basically diarrhea. There have been many interpretations of the Bristol Stool Chart, with many different names given to the various stools. Here are some of the best poo names the internet has to offer:
T1 – Maltesers, ass goblins, bristol balls, marbles, the croquettes
T2 – Lion bar, The real Mccoy, monkey bread, Catapillar
T3 – Toffee Crisp, The Lincoln Log, Cracked sausage, Hot dogs
T4 – Ripple, Smooth criminal, Goldilocks poo, snake, the slippy
T5 – Clusters, Smelly seaweed, Bristol blobs, Amoeba
T6 – Bubbly, Lumpy fart, Fluffy poo, soft serve
T7 – Hot chocolate, Rancid river, fountain of poo, Jackson Pollock, The fire hose
We thought these names were ok but thought we could do better so we teamed up with local cartoon legend Turbo Island to create a bum guns special Bristol Stool Chart, hope you enjoy:
