The Poo Song — a funny Scottish ditty promoting bowel cancer awareness

Posted by Liv Siddall,

I don’t know what’s better about this song, the fact that it’s a song about poo sung by a funny Scottish man for the NHS, or the YouTube comments, some of which include: “This is a shite for sore eyes” and “Let’s get it on Top Of The Poops.” In this very simple yet effective video, the NHS is encouraging older men and women to regularly check their poo for signs of bowel cancer, an increasingly big problem in Scotland. Featuring funny paper pictures and lyrics such as: “Tell your mum, tell your dad, tell your second uncle Vlad” this is definitely worth watching and, if you’re of a certain age, taking note of.
