Doo-Doo

I was watching a piece on the NBC Today Show entitled "How Safe is the Food at Your Local Mall?"

One of the official violation reports cited in the piece used the word "excretia" in reference to mouse shit. Interesting word.

That is an interesting word, and it's easy to figure the meaning from the context and its obvious relationship to "excrete", but it's hard to find a definition of it. My dictionary has only "excreta", meaning, of course, "excreted matter, as sweat, urine, feces, etc.". I suspect "excretia" is a misuse of "excreta". And while I was searching for "excretia" on the internet, I ran across yet another unintentionally hilarious Christian website: http://www.excretia.com/about.asp

Cheers.
