PRE-TURKEY DAY PROVOCATIVE THOUGHT: MAKING _____

Why is it that Filipinos say that they have to "make" poo-poo, pee-pee, tae, ihi, utot, blah-blah-blah, yada-yada? I don't get it. I mean are we actually "making" those things? Aren't those natural occurences of the human body? Is the body actually making poop or pee?

I am now finding this all too disturbing.

It is even more disturbing that I catch myself asking kids this... "Do you have to make peepee?" As if this is the way that we should be conditioning children to think about the poo/pee process!

GOSH!

i don't think it's just a filipino thing. i was watching Friends, the one where phoebe gets married to mike. Ross was giving a dog a command to "Make!"

Okay, but what I really don't understand is that some people say "Take___" i.e. "I need to take a poo." I REALLY hope they leave it where they make it.
