We've put some memorable M&M on the bayblab before. The digital rectal massage protocol, the rat genital licking protocol etc.. Inspired by our friend D.r. Bergeron (chicken soup above) and one of our baybe-fan Laura (protocol below), I dare you to one-up those materials and methods: "Reservoir function: Rectal reservoir function was evaluated by instilling artificial stool into the rectum. The test solution consisted of a slurry of Veegum in water, thickened to the consistency of soft stools and maintained at 37°C. A small catheter was inserted into the rectum, and aliquots of 50 ml were instilled with a large bore syringe, at an approximate rate of 140 ml/min, up to the point of intolerant sensation or leakage. The volumes for initial sensation, urgency, and first leakage were recorded."
