Why Use Fake Poop for an Upper Decker
If the idea of doing a number 2 in the tank of a toilet is not sitting well with you, but you love and appreciate a good prank, consider the fake poop (FP) upper decker option. This simple option allows all the shock of an upper decker without the associated clean-up. Another plus is that you will want to hang around and take the credit; no worries about an over-reacting angry homeowner. In many ways, this option is far superior to actually shitting in a toilet. Also, if you’re a girl (calling you a lady would be a little presumptuous!), you can pull off this prank without losing too much face. I mean, if you’re a chick taking an upper decker, well, I’m not sure what to think about that.
Where Do You Find Fake Poop?
I have fake poop – Now What?
Once you procure your FP you need to do a test to make sure that it sinks. Any vessel of water works for this test – a bowl of water, a glass of water, a decanter of wine, or a sink of water. I would not recommend trying the sinker floater test in any hot beverage, especially hot chocolate or coffee. Don’t ask how I know. If you really want to be authentic I suggest trying it in your own toilet tank. It will give you the proper perspective, and allow you to experiment with placement for the eventual prank. If your FP is a floater, you will need to weigh it down. You can easily accomplish this with a small rock and a little glue. Another great option if you’re a fisherman (or fisherwoman), is fishing weights. You can thread a few inches of fishing line (Fluorocarbon variety with a 6# or greater rating is recommended) through the FP and attach the weights. It is a nice touch if you make the FP really heavy for some unsuspecting toilet cleaner to find later.
A mixture of sinker and floaters is another option. This adds another layer of authenticity and complexity, and it’s well worth the effort. If you’re taking these steps, consider taking along a dozen kernels of canned sweet yellow corn and a dozen boiled peanuts. I think you know what these are for and they do really make a difference. Roasted peanuts are alright also since most people may not have boiled peanuts handy.
