Often I have to wonder about the Japanese love of poop or as Salon magazine best put it in their seminal report, “Poo Rules!’ On the other hand, this “EM” anti-stick product seems almost sacrilegious here in the land of the Unchikun and buildings like the Great Golden Turd of Tokyo shown in the pictures here. Amazingly, you can even drink the anti-stink EM products in the form of tea and wine. Yikes! Talk about Japanese shit not stinking.
