Entry:   defecatory (adj.)

Definition:    Not in the OED, perhaps surprisingly.  Presumably the position one assumes while pooping.  A Wallace-ism?


Other:   See, for example, “I can picture deLint and White sitting with their elbows on their knees in the defecatory posture of all athletes at rest...” (Infinite Jest, pg. 9)

SNOOT score:  1 (both because it’s a Wallace-ism and because it’s hard to be SNOOTy about poop)
