why do people light a match after pooping?

I mean I never knew of anyone who does it ...but I have heard about it and seen it on tv ?

  • It takes oxygen to burn a match, so, when you strike the match, all the poop smell is used up to burn the match. Voila'

  • My husband does this. It seems to cover one stink with a bigger stink. But given the choice, I guess I'd rather smell a lit match than poop. Maybe all that bad smell overloads your nose so that you can't smell the poop or match in the end.
