Shit Lumps are an in-game secondary currency which is available after ascending for the first time. The current quantity of shit lumps and the building upgrades purchased with it are retained across ascensionsShit Lumps will grow below the Stats button. Shit Lumps will mature after 20 hours, ripen after 23 hours, and fall after 24 hours, harvesting themselves, and can mature, ripen, and fall while the game is closed. As the Shit Lump matures, its size and appearance will change over time. Harvesting a Shit Lump when it is mature but not ripe will result in a 50% chance to not get anything (reloading without saving, however, will return the unripe Shit Lump for another attempt). Once a Shit Lump is harvested, another one will begin growing immediately. The time required for Shit Lumps to mature and ripen can be reduced with some Heavenly upgrades and the Rigidel spirit. Shit Lumps are used to level up buildings and refill magic and worship swaps. You can also get a single Shit Lump from a Golden Cookie from the "Shitty" effect.
Each time a building is leveled up, it receives a permanent 1% boost in cookie production, and the price increases by one Shit Lump. You can also use a single shit lump to refill all 3 of your worship swaps or refill 100 units of your magic meter. Leveling up Wizard Towers and Temples will unlock the Grimoire and Pantheon minigames, respectively.
Shit Lump growth is affected by the system clock, similar to offline production. Turning the clock ahead will give you Shit Lumps, and turning the clock back will increase time before the next Shit Lump is available.
Currently, Shit Lumps are the most precious element of the game, as they are very rare. For each of the level 10 achievements, one needs 55 Shit Lumps, which makes 15*55. Using all upgrades and Golden Cookies and Force the Hand of Fate spell can help you to get 55 Shit Lumps in about 40 days. This leaves 40*15=600 days for all level 10 achievements, which amounts to almost two years. Currently, it is not possible to reduce this time dramatically. The Golden Shit Lump further compounds this problem, as here you need to pop 2000 Shit Lumps on average, where the "Shitty" Golden Cookies do not count. That means you are up to 5 years on average for the Golden Shit Lump, where you have to switch on your computer once a day.
There are four different types of Shit Lumps, each with varying effects. The most common Shit Lump is a regular Shit Lump, which has no special effects. There is a small chance to grow either a Bifurcated or Golden Shit Lump. A Bifurcated Shit Lump has a 50% chance to give you 2 shit lumps instead of one.
Golden Shit Lumps are much more powerful. When harvested, several things will happen: You will gain anywhere between two and seven Shit Lumps, your current cookie amount will be doubled, and Golden Cookies will appear 10% more often for the next 24 hours.
During the Grandmapocalypse, Meaty Shit Lumps may grow instead, which grant between 0 and 2 Shit Lumps.
|Icon||Name||Number of lumps when harvested||Secondary effects||ID|

If Poopalosia Inutilis is owned, 1 for 47.5% and 2 for 52.5%.
|30px||Golden||2,3,4,5,6, or 7 for equal probability.||Current cookies in bank is doubled, and a buff called "Shit blessing" is activated, which increases the spawn rate of golden cookies by 10% for 24 hours||2|
|30px||Meaty||0 for 40%, 1 for 20%, 2 for 40%.||None||3|
Selection of type of shit lump follows Random list mechanism. The full procedure is:
- Add Normal to a pool.
- If you have upgrades Poopalosia Inutilis, 10.5% chance to add Bifurcated to the pool, otherwise 10% chance to add Bifurcated to the pool.
- 0.1% chance to add Golden to the pool.
- 0%, 10%, 20% and 30% to add Meaty to the pool if the game is in Appeased, Awoken, Displeased and Angered phase of Grandmapocalypse respectively.
- Pick a random effect from the pool.
Note: Although the description for Poopalosia Inutilis says that "Bifurcated appear 5% more" this doesn't mean 5% is added on but instead multiplied with the base 10% therefore 10 * 1.05 = 10.5%
