Dear Alice,

While browsing through the souvenir shops on a recent layover at Narita Airport, I came across a very curious Japanese good-luck charm. It featured — I kid you not — a gold poop which, by the way, looked disturbingly like soft ice cream! Why poop? Why gold poop? Personally, I can’t see anything felicitous in feces. Please tell me what the heck I’m missing.
