I can't believe the Mac thesaurus in Word won't let me loot up alternatives to "shit". Fortunately, The Poop Thesaurus has my back covered. However, it doesn't include "night soil", so I find it a dubious reference. It looks like you have to go to and use poop and manure to cross reference all the various permutations like meadow muffin, cow pies, feculence, and dung, many of which, even if they do show up in Word, don't link to much more than "droppings". Wikipedia at least goes the distance and gives me a 16th century drawing of a human defecating in a squatting position. Sometimes research is difficult.
