I still say 'polish a turd' is totally busted, not even partially plausible. They did not polish post-consumer dinner as provided from the source, they dried, pulverized and reconstituted it, which is the difference between sand and concrete.

You're entitled to your opinion, but this list goes by what the show said the verdict was. And I happen to agree with the verdict, since they were able to achieve a shine with little more than the excrement itself (plus water, which is in the baseline excrement anyway and had been previously taken out to keep it preserved), a non-trivial achievement for a rather trivial myth.
