Posts Tagged ‘caca’

The autumn edition of the magazine Urbania (numéro 31) was devoted entirely to the theme of babies. And of course the first thing that comes to mind when you think of babies is caca.

They even devoted two pages to analysing the contents of a diaper to determine how well bébé is doing.

Vert-brun, brun dur et sec, jaune foncé, noir, brun aqueux… author Julie Chaumont explained the meaning of all these cacas (and more), by their odour, consistency, frequency, ingredients and quantity.

I can’t go through all of the descriptions here, so we’ll just take a peek at the caca that Julie describes as jaune moutarde, doré, parfois tacheté vert. This poop is the result of a baby who’s been breastfed.

She describes the odour of this caca in these terms:

Douce, pas désagréable. Mon chum dit que ça sent la bouffe du McDo.

Douce (and not doux), because she’s describing the odeur of the caca. Odeur is feminine. She explains that her chum (it’s not clear what their marital status is!) says that this poo smells like the food (la bouffe) from McDonalds (McDo).

With yesterday’s entry about the food at Valentine, I think that I’ve served you enough fast food these past two days. Except this time it’s much messier because the author says that these cacas peuvent exploser et sortir […] de tous côtés de la couche…
