Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.

The random article for Monday, 23 December 2019 is Slopping out.

Slopping out is the manual emptying of human waste when prison cells are unlocked in the morning. Inmates without a flush toilet in the cell have to use other means (formerly a chamber pot, then a bucket, now often a chemical toilet) while locked in during the night. The reason that some cells do not have toilets is that they date from the Victorian era and were therefore not designed with plumbing. As a result, there is no space in which to put a toilet, together with the expense and difficulty of installing the necessary pipes.

This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 00:13 UTC on Monday, 23 December 2019.

For the full current version of the article, see Slopping out on Wikipedia.
