Woman Who Hid Poo In Handbag While On Date Reveals She's Now Got Quite The Fan Club

Poo = the ultimate dating weapon.

A woman who tweeted about how she hid an un-flushable poo in her handbag while on a date says she has since been inundated with messages from potential suitors.

Makela shared her cautionary tale about pooing at a date's house on Twitter and - unsurprisingly - it wasn't long before she gained international attention.

But rather than acting as a deterrent, the unusual subject matter has actually prompted a lot of guys to get in touch.

Makela, who is from Toronto, Canada, told TMZ that she's been inundated with messages from admirers after her poo story went viral.

She first shot to fame last week after she tweeted a story about when she went to the toilet at her date's house, but it wouldn't flush.

Panicking, she fished her poo out of the toilet, wrapped it in tissue and stashed it in her handbag.

Reliving the nightmare on Twitter, she wrote: "We are sitting there on his couch and kissing and all I can think of is the piece of poop in my purse."

After a few hours, Makela's date went to the toilet and she heard it flush.

So, she decided that she'd go upstairs and try to flush the parcel in her handbag once again.

To her delight, the flush worked and she was rid of the unwanted goods.

But that's not to say the ordeal didn't take its toll. Reflecting on her actions afterwards she wrote: "This is v embarrassing for me.

"But seriously: don't drink coffee before a date, its better to be sleepy than to have to hide poop in ur purse [sic]."
