Euphemisms for Pooping

Once again I am up in the middle of the night with feverish dreams.  When the happen I usually get up and tinker for a little while to let my body cool down. It sucks because when this happens it usually takes my body a few hours to get tired again. Oh, the joys of Crohn’s Disease.  Anyhow, the wind outside is howling tonight and my mind followed a tangent when thinking about it. Wind -> passing gas -> going poop -> euphemisms for going poop. I am sure Crohn’s disease was in there somewhere, but you get the point.

I have to say that my favorite euphemism for going poop has to be “dropping the kids off at the pool.” But… there are some other good ones I have heard. So, I thought I would make list of the ones I could think of. So, here it is:

1. Dropping the kids off at the pool

2. Releasing the hounds

3. Backing out the brown volvo

4. Going to speak to a man about a horse

5.  Cooking some fudge

6.  Drop some logs

7.  Grow a tail

8. Make a core dump

9. Pinch a loaf

10. Lay some cable

11.  Make a grunt sculpture

12. Sink the Bismark

13. Take a steamer

14. Evacuate

15. Answering the call of the wild

16. Bombing the oval office

17. Catching up on some reading

18. Flexing your cheeks

19. Greeting Mr. Hankey

20. Testing the plumbing

This in turn lead me to think about some of the terms I had heard of for diarrhea…

1. Brownie batter

2. Brewing hot chocolate

3. Hershey squirts

4. Montezuma’s revenge

5. The squirts

6. The runs

7. The trots

8. Trouser chili


I am sure there are plenty I have not thought of, so feel free to remind me of them

    A couple you seem to have overlooked:

    Dropping a deuce

    Taking the Browns to the Superbowl

    That’s a great list. I’ve always heard “Going to see a man about a horse” – similar to what you’ve got. Pinch a loaf and lay some cable are some others I’ve heard a lot.

    Matt –

    Hi. I am new to the blog world so if I am doing this wrong, just let me know! I was very recently diagnosed with Crohn’s and have been doing some internet seaches. I found your blog and have enjoyed reading your articles and all. I have a question; have you or any of your “crohnies” been taking remicade? I have been told that I will need to have infusions for the rest of my life and I want to know if there are others like me….
    Thank you!

    Hi Darlene,

    I don’t really know of any other folks that are taking remicade aside from the folks I talk to who are receiving infusions at the same time as I am. Yes, I am on remicade as well. I have been for about 6 years now and so far so good. So, yes, there are others like you… Plenty of others.

    Good luck with your infusion!
