Erm, wasn't sure where to put this... but, BEETROOT poo
"The pinkness of your wee depends on the acidity of your stomach; some people don't see pink wee afterwards and some do (approximately 10 - 14%). If you don't get pink wee then your stomach is at the strongly acidic end of the normal range - if you do see pink wee then your stomach is at the less acidic end of normal, and the colour hasn't been broken down on the way through your gut.
If you don't normally have pink-stained pee after consuming beetroot, you might like to try an experiment. Try taking some antacid tablets, then eat beetroot. Remember to look at what you're doing the next time you visit the toilet. That should satisfy your curiosity."
