A 300-pound transvestite eating dog shit might seem tame
today, but back in 1972, when John Waters's Pink Flamingos came out, it raised some
eyebrows. Doing the turd-eating honors is Waters's late muse Divine, as she and
her family try to qualify as the filthiest people in the world. But after Edith
Massey's egg-sucking Edie and Divine's sex scene involving her son and a
chicken, coprophagy seems almost anticlimactic.
