EVERYONE Poops, a very popular children’s story that teaches its readers about defecation, now has a sequel. And it’s not enjoying as much success as you might expect.
The sequel, EVERYONE DIES, a book marketed towards children, attempts to teach its readers about the universality of death and how we all will eventually meet this inescapable end. Sales of this book have remained flat, as young children simply haven’t connected to the material.
EVERYONE POOPS attempts to teach us not to be embarrassed about the natural functioning of our bodies, with lines such as:
“Grownups poop. Children poop too. While some children poop on the potty. Others poop in their diapers,”
On the other hand, EVERYONE DIES, in an attempt to follow the same pattern, strikes a bit more somber tone:
“Grandparents die. Parents die too. Everyone you love will die some day. Even you!”
EVERYONE DIES has since been removed from the shelves, but we have a small excerpt from the end of the book below.
