Don't ask me why but I have just googled the 's**t and shovel' quote to see it where it originated from :lol::oops:

 

Only feasible one I've found so far is.....

 

In the days when trains had a driver and a fireman to load coal and it was necessary to answer a call of nature you would s**t on the coal shovel and then throw it in the fire as quick as possible because of smell and hygiene. As the shovel had coal dust on it, the s**t did not stick. Interestingly the same shovel could be cleaned with steam and could be used to cook bacon and eggs.

 

:shock::wink:

A little Australian S****y Ditty from 1940

 

When I was young and had no sense

I bought a fiddle for eighteen pence

But the only tune that I could play

Was "s**t on the shovel and throw it away"

:lol::wink:

Good research Dizzy?

 

I am no mathematician, so to work out distance and speed, you would have to know what the approx' distance the shovel was from the furnace/boiler hatch, and how long it took the s**t to leave the shoval and enter the furnace/boiler hatch :?:
