Sometimes, you can find some amazing things while wandering around New York City. Take, for example, what The Business Insider found while meandering up and down The Bowery and popping into a pop-up store:

Seated on the lip of a giant, Jacuzzi-sized toilet, her feet submerged in a pile of technicolored kids' playhouse balls, wearing a shirt that reads, "Ask Me About My Butthole," Miki Agrawal describes her bowel movements.
"I've pooped, like, five to eight times a day because of my hyperactive thyroid," says Agrawal. "It's a lot."

That is a lot of poop! But it's also a lot of information about Miki Agrawal, who is apparently a rather infamous NYC entrepreneur.

Agrawal is the founder of Tushy, a company whose one-step mission is to bring the bidet — that mysterious toilet faucet of European origins — to us, the 2-ply Ultra Soft Charmin-loving people of the United States.

And, how, pray tell, does a woman come to found such a targeted startup in between her frequent dump-out sessions? What makes someone so eager to discuss her own asshole for money?

Agrawal, a former investment banker, has long set her professional sights on the nether regions of the modern-day consumer. She's best known as the self-described "She-E.O." of Thinx, a startup providing underwear for women on their periods, which she left amid a cloud of controversy last year. Tushy launched in 2014, while she was still with Thinx, and is still going strong.

Wait, stop. Go back...

Nope, further [but we do want to talk about that later]...

A former investment banker.

THERE it is. A quick search of Agrawal's LinkedIn page reveals this little nugget:

Two years on the front lines of pre-crisis Deutsche Bank is where Agrawal's professional origin tale begins. We don't know much about her time there...yet [one of you monsters must have worked with her], but we do know that she is now on what appears to be her fourth or fifth iteration of fameball startup CEO, this time selling asshole power-washing technology to the uninitiated whilst wearing an "Ask Me About My Butthole" t-shirt and admitting that she poops every other waking hour of her life. Imagine how crazy she'd be if she'd hung around Deutsche any longer.

And that's not all. Like we said, it's worth talking about why she no longer works at her "Period panties" startup, Thinx.

Take it away, New York Magazine from March 2017:

Miki Agrawal, the co-founder of Thinx — a company that makes “period underwear” — doesn’t think much of boundaries. “I just love the taboo space,” she told New York last year, of her mission to (profitably) destigmatize menstruation. And in a promotional video for the product, she said, “My favorite thing to talk about are the things you’re not supposed to talk about.” According to a complaint filed late last week by a former employee (and echoed in interviews with multiple current and former employees), those things have included: the size and shape of her employees’ breasts, an employee’s nipple piercings, her own sexual exploits, her desire to experiment with polyamory, her interest in entering a sexual relationship with one of her employees, and the exact means by which she was brought to female ejaculation.

Damn, that's cra- Oh, there's more?

Per the detailed complaint, filed with the City of New York Commission on Human Rights, Agrawal also touched an employee’s breasts and asked her to expose them, routinely changed clothes in front of employees, and conducted meetings via videoconference while in bed, apparently unclothed. (She also is said in the filing to have shared nude photos of herself and others — “including but not limited to her fiancé” — with staff.) At least once, she supposedly FaceTimed into a meeting from the toilet.

We're not saying that working at Deutsche Bank during her formative years created the kind of behavior that Agrawal is getting famous for, but we are saying that her brand of ludicrous nonsense is exactly what Deutsche needs right now. So, let us be the first to say that Miki Agrawal should go sell some bidets to her alma mater for its new, smaller Midtown digs, and while she's there take a shot at a senior role in Deutsche's US I-Banking operation.

And she should definitely wear the t-shirt; everyone at Deutsche Bank USA is asking one another about their buttholes these days.
