The Puru may have finally met his match. Jibril is an extraordinary five year-old living in the Bronx who just happens to be obsessed with digestion. In this episode of SHHH, Jibril schools Shawn on why poop should resemble bananas instead of asteroids, explains the genesis of the pyloric sphincter, and meditates on the difference between half-digested food and poop. Joined by his mother Fatima and a league of lego models, Jibril will refresh your knowledge of basic biology and redefine cuteness while saying words like "penis," "gallbladder," and "hepatopancreatic duct" in all innocent earnestness.
