Some kids are the class clown even before they ever step foot inside a classroom. You know the ones: they love a good (and bad) joke, have a natural sense of comedic timing, and they develop a healthy sense of sarcasm well beyond their years. If they’re lucky, they grow up to write sardonic gift guides to help others find the perfect present for anyone of any age who appreciates the wacky, silly, and downright absurd

POOP The Game

POOP is a fast-paced card game where players take turns pooping, and try not to clog the toilet (in the game...not in an actual bathroom). Kids love it because of the silly gross-out humor, and parents love it because it’s a creative thinking game the whole family can play.
