Outsider or Black Sheep?

I've posted several definitions of poop on this blog before.

However, I never included a certain type of poop that I've come to meet on a few occasions. You think you make a normal poop and all is well when you look down and see a small black little piece lying to the side or floating a bit away from the brown log.

I'm not sure if we should name this "The Outsider" or the "Black Sheep"?

What do you think?

3) The act or process of dressing or grooming oneself.
