James at The Forward Cabin and Lucky at One Mile At A Time just recently showed us How Airplane Toilets Are Cleaned in this video.

But apparently at least one person missed their posts. (BoardingArea: a wealth of diverse knowledge!) Especially the part about how our… scatological discards… go into a tank for storage, not out a poop shoot. According to the Odd News from United Press International (UPI), a New Zealand woman is quite upset, claiming she discovered an airplane dumped human waste on her home and car. The report quotes Ms. Bass —

“I’m absolutely disgusted at the moment. The amount of crap everywhere is horrendous,” she said. Bass said she is going to have a sample of feces independently tested to verify it came from humans. “There’s no way it’s a bird or animal poo, it’s horrible. I’m sure it’s human, what else could it be with huge clumps like that?”

My money’s on a neighborhood Billy Madison pulling another in a series of pranks on Ms. Bass. But don’t take my word for it, the FAA has officially addressed this… issue.

Con Air (1997) warned us of worse things.

Still, the champion of airline potty humor is yet to be dethroned.
