Have you ever wondered if zebra poop is harder than pig plop? Or if doggy dumps smell worse than kestrel crud? Of course you have. And that’s why you need Plop Trumps.
As its name (almost) suggests, this ploptastic card game is based on everyone’s favourite game of one-upmanship (yes, that’s a p on the end there). But there’s a radical twist because the cards deal with all kinds of weird and wonderful animal poo. No, really. We’re talking…well, you know.
Beautifully photographed and wittily written, each Plop Trumps deck now contains 50 info-packed cards, packed with in-crud-ible trivia and, erm, compelling images. Hands up who knew tiger poo was longer than iguana mess? Or that penguin droppings smell worse than python muck? We certainly didn’t. Then again we didn’t realise the average Lemur poo looks like one of Bungle off Rainbow’s fingers. You learn something new every day.
Each card contains several categories, or scategories, if you will, including: frequency, hardness, length, width, smelliness and yuck factor. There’s also an interesting factoid below each photo. You’ll be gripped by this whole poo-ing malarkey before you can say ‘soft, strong and very long’.
Just like this description (well, ish), Plop Trumps have been carefully written and contain no offensive language, so they’re fascinating and informative for poo-obsessed kids as well as infantile adults.
A brilliantly bleurgh gift with a sheen of scientific respectability, these captivating cards really are the business. So hurry up and get ordering before we run out of excrement-based euphemisms. Outpoo-ing opponents has never been such fun. Oh sugar!
