An article for disposing bodily waste has been patented. The article consists of a liquid-pervious inner sheet and a liquid-impervious outer sheet surrounding a liquid-absorbent core. A longitudinally tapered front and rear end section and a pair of intermediate sections extend between the article’s front and rear sections. A bottom peripheral wall extends upwardly from the bottom’s peripheral edge, and an opening is defined by the peripheral wall. The peripheral wall comprises a front peripheral wall portion extending above the front section with a pointed front end. A rear peripheral wall portion extends above the rear section with a pointed rear end. A pair of intermediate peripheral wall portions extend inwardly from the article above the intermediate section so that the distance between the pair of intermediate peripheral wall portions gradually decreases towards the front and rear peripheral wall portions, respectively.
