If by "pooh" you mean excrement, there is an excrement icon in the 
Unicode specs but not on that code page. Believe me working with young 
children learning Livecode the excrement icon features fairly large . . .

"Pile of Poo" http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/1F4A9/index.htm

"Nails" http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/1f485/index.htm

"Ghost" http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/1f47b/index.htm
