The machine is fed leftovers from the cafeteria at the gallery which is converted into feces by a number of mechanical processes that reproduce what the human body does naturally. In the end, a turd shoots out—vacuum packed and suitable for framing. Imagine—it requires a giant machine like this one to accurately pinch a loaf. Our bodies are truly remarkable!

Now....sit for a minute and look at the SIZE of that thing, and consider that all of THAT is necessary to do your gastrointestinal system does in no more space than below your thoracic cavity and above your asshole. It'll amaze me if you can sit and ponder that and then turn around and tell me my body was not designed by the master engineer (aka God). That's why I don't get atheists. And don't feed me that evolution shit either.
