Send your friends the gift of poop…using nothing but your hands.

Poop emojis have been popular in Japan for years, where the Japanese word for poo, “unko” contains “un“, which sounds exactly like the word for good luck, leading the emoji to be used as a symbol of good luck exchanged between friends before big events like tests, performances, and interviews.

▼ The poop emoji is often depicted with a happy, smiling face.

The swirly-shaped, multi-tiered poop emoji has become well-known in other countries as well, but now there’s a new trend catching on that shows you don’t have to have an electronic device to send your poop signals out to the world.

Twitter user @GAWA_TaTsuTa shared this image online recently, showing his younger sister’s rendering of the image, using just her hands and fingers.

Not only does this hand symbol have the outline of a poop emoji, but the folds of skin between the knuckles adds some wavy layers in between, showing great attention to detail.

The young woman behind the creation predicted it would go viral, and that’s exactly what happened, as the tweet was retweeted more than 50,000 times and received over 180,000 likes in just two days.

The tweet also prompted other Twitter users to share their own hand-poop emojis as well.

“When I was a student, I figured out this hand signal.”

“At work I would often show this hand signal to my supervisor and then disappear to the toilet.”

“If we’re talking about silhouettes, no one can rival this one made by my sister.”

▼ Some Twitter users discovered ways to create the poo emoji with one hand…

▼ While others found a way to make a turd appear with a friend.

▼ Who knew there were so many ways to make poop with your hands?

The love of cute excrement is certainly strong in Japan. After all, this is the land of high-tech toilets, Unko Kanji Drill practice books, a sleuthing Butt Detective, a poop mascot, turd ice cream, and the Unko Poo Museum.

So we guess it was only a matter of time before people found a way to make turds appear from their hands. If you love toilet humour, why not give this a go and see what type of poo you can produce. We’d love to see your photos in the comments section below!
