One day, he found himself unable to shit. Several days passed, and he went to the hospital.
The doctors tried everything over the following months... enemas, laxatives, probing... they were unable to clear his bowels. After a while he was no longer allowed to eat or drink, and was put on an IV while he waited for a shit.
After FIVE MONTHS of being bedridden do to extreme constipation, his doctor told him to go home. Jim was expected to die within days, so they figured he may as well do so at home with his family. Jim asked the docter if he was going to die anyway, could he please eat something? The doctor said yes, there was nothing more that could be done so he might as well enjoy a meal.
Jim stopped at Burger King on his way home from the hospital. He sat down to eat his Whopper, and halfway through it he felt his stomach start to rumble. He managed to make it to the toilet just in time to have the largest shit ever known to come out of a human being. He made a prompt recovery, and to this day his family jokes about Burger King being "Home of the Whopper".
