Kimberly-Clark Obtains Patent for Artificial Feces
"The company makes among other things diapers, baby wipes, and
training pants. Material for testing these products adequately has
until now been a problem, both in obtaining a reliable supply from
infants and in overcoming the repugnance of the laboratory technicians
(the job description must be something). Patent 5356626 was granted to
a pair of researchers who developed a synthetic substitute that is free
of odor and capable of being tinted any color; the company has selected
brown for the product so far. Apparently they do not intend to market
it, for novelty gifts or any other purpose."
