I don't see this idiom on the Oxford Dictionary site, Wiktionary or the 
ADS archives.

Meaning - Not superior to others

"Aw, my shit stinks just like anyone else's," grouses Calvello, running 
a heavily ornamented hand through her short platinum hair. "The key is 
to love people, to treat everyone like a human being."

I'm not perfect, my shit stinks just like every one else, but this shit 
is beneath me, I'm not going fucking hold a torch to someone because of 
a fucking game dude, grow-up, everyone makes mistakes, furthermore this 
is between Bebo and Denise, let them sort it the fuck out if they want 
to, and don't drag me in to, because you ran off as soon as the gun tooted.

It makes me wonder if these wonderful individuals actually have smelly 
shit.

...

Lastly, yes my shit stinks just like anyone elses.  Although I wish it 
didn't. But hell, it is good to be a normalish human being.
