Incredible Cross-Sections

by Rob Friesel

I was just talking about this book the other day, and then I saw this tweet:

As I was telling my friends, I totally remember this book, and/but…

We were on a vacation with another family and they’d brought the book. I cannot remember exactly which cross-section it was where we first noticed it, but sure enough. There was someone poopin’. Can you spot the one in the fishing trawler?

After spotting the first one, it became a coprophilic “Where’s Waldo?” Does every cross-section have someone poopin’? We scanned each page. Yes… Yes… Yes… Again, yes… Sometimes they were easy to find, others (hello Empire State Building) were significantly harder. What about the Cathedral? Surely it was blasphemous to have someone poopin’ in there… Nope; there was a monk poopin’. And while technically the cross-section of the battle tank didn’t have someone poopin’, the cross-section did show the driver’s lower intestines (home of poop!) and a good argument could be made that he was so scared that he was poopin’ his pants.
