Don't Go To This Doctor!



Anal catheters are medical instruments which involve a tube inserted into a patient’s rectum for a number of reasons, including to insert fluids or gather fecal matter for testing, according to Forbes. As any reasonably sound person could conclude, the instrument becomes covered with bodily fluids and therefore, unsanitary, which is why a new one is required to be used for every patient.


But, a December 19 hearing revealed that Patankar may have used the catheters excessively. Evidence presented shows that 82 procedures requiring catheters—for people with problems such as constipation and fecal incontinence—were performed at his office during an 11-month time span in 2017. Instead of having purchased 82 instruments, records reveal only five catheters were ordered during that time.

Poop Talk!

Exclusive: It's all Poop Talk all the time in a new comedian-packed documentary about shitting

"Everybody poops, but most people don’t talk about it all that much. That could change with the release of Poop Talk, a new documentary from Comedy Dynamics. Randy and Jason Sklar’s new movie—in theaters and on VOD February 16—finds more than 50 comedians and actors telling their best poop stories, revealing their most embarrassing bathroom moments, and seeking bowel-based answers from actual scientific experts. Featured poop pals include Kumail Nanjiani, Nicole Byer, Adam Carolla, Rob Corddry, Nikki Glaser, Pete Holmes, Eric Stonestreet, Nick Swardson, and the venerable Dr. Drew Pinsky, as well as the Sklar brothers themselves."
