I think I would lose my blog tagline if I didn't point out that the History Channel will give us 120 minutes of premium television with the debut of All About Dung tonight at 9ET:
Join host Monty Halls* as he investigates the historical, medical, scientific and evolutionary importance of poop on an excremental safari guaranteed to fascinate even the most squeamish of viewers. You'll be surprised by the amazing manner in which the world puts dung to use. Discover that through a 14,000-year-old human dung deposit it has been determined that humans inhabited North America 1300 years earlier than previously thought. Climb a 100-foot mountain of bat guano in Borneo that is teeming with insect life. Travel to India and view housewarming rituals using sacred cow dung as good luck. Finally Halls drinks coffee made from poop and investigates, through their large droppings, why mammoths might have disappeared.
*In case you're wondering, it's not the Let's Make a Deal guy. That would be Monty Hall. Though it would probably be damn good television if they could get Monty Hall talking to Monty Halls about dung.
