A pile of vile whatsit
The Poopsmith's number-one specialty is Number Two.

Whatsit is a name for the commodity that The Poopsmith shovels, also known as You-Know-What and crap.

First seen in The King of Town DVD, the large pile of whatsit shows up whenever The Poopsmith is "on the job". Incidentally, in Ballad of The Sneak, "whatzit" is used to refer to The Sneak. Also, in Bug In Mouth Disease the King of Town says, "I keep telling him the sun don't rise and set on that pile of whatsit, but he don't want to listen!" In Sick Day, a mound of whatsit on the map of Rotten Egglünd is called "Whatsitshire". Also, in the Strong Bad Email narrator, Strong Bad makes a preview for a movie called "Whatsit All About?", which features The Poopsmith shoveling his pile of whatsit.

In 3 Times Halloween Funjob, Homestar Runner gets some to fill his arbitrarily self-imposed weight requirement of "like a million pounds of candy." The Poopsmith serves up a dish of it to The King of Town for no sufficiently well-understood reason in the newer Homestar Theme Song Video, which nearly makes the King lose his lunch (although he would eventually eat the whole whatsit pile in fan club). The Poopsmith has been known to make "The Poopsmiths' Super Deluxe You-Know-What Cookies" using this questionable ingredient; takers of the Homestar Quiz are treated to his recipe upon receiving a perfect score. Coach Z tried making small talk with The Poopsmith about his pile of whatsit in Where's The Cheat?

A picture of whatsit also appears on the final page of the book in pop-up, under the "crap flap". Earlier, in your friends, Strong Bad referred to it as crap, saying The Poopsmith "shovels crap for a living".

An interesting variation of the term itself appeared in Dangeresque Roomisode 1: Behind the Dangerdesque, when barf was called "whoosit".
