A man became a laughing stock after asking for a ''poop knife'' at a friend's house.

The unnamed man thought the concept of a piece of cutlery used to cut up stool was a normal everyday household item, until he went to the toilet at a friend's house to find it was only his home.

Writing on Reddit, he wrote: ''It's been a day or two between poops and I'm over at my friend's house. I excuse myself and lay a gigantic turd.

''I look down and see that it's a sideways one, so I crack the door and call out for my friend. He arrives and I ask him for his poop knife. 'My what?'

'''Your poop knife, I say. I need to use it. Please'. 'Wtf is a poop knife?'

''Obviously he has one, but maybe he calls it by a more delicate name. A fecal cleaver? A Dung divider? A guano glaive? I explain what it is I want and why I want it.''

''He starts giggling. Then laughing. Then lots of people start laughing. It turns out, the music stopped and everyone heard my pleas through the door.

''It also turns out that none of them had poop knives, it was just my f**king up family with their f**king up bowels. FML. (sic)''

The man then carried on and explained that it seems to be ''genetic'' that his whole family has ''giant logs of crap''.

He said: ''My family poops big. Maybe it's genetic, maybe it's our diet, but everyone births giant logs of crap.

''If anyone has laid a mega-poop, you know that sometimes it won't flush.

''It lays across the hole in the bottom of the bowl and the vortex of draining water merely gives it a spin as it mocks you.

''Growing up, this was a common enough occurrence that our family had a poop knife.

''It was an old rusty kitchen knife that hung on a nail in the laundry room, only to be used for that purpose.

''It was normal to walk through the hallway and have someone call out 'hey, can you get me the poop knife?'

''I thought it was standard kit. You have your plunger, your toilet brush, and your poop knife.''
