About the author

Hugh Jassburn has been pooing since 1974. After several months of producing a variety of stools (mostly in washable and reusable nappies) he moved on to disposables. By 1978 Hugh was a regular toilet user and hasn’t looked back since. He is not a fan of cheap toilet paper, and strongly believes the flap should always be at the front of the roll. Hugh lives in Shitterton, Dorset, and dreams of one day moving to Pratt’s Bottom in Kent.
