Emergency defecation situation? Is that the proper phrase for almost shit himself? I’d be laughing at that too. There’s no way of telling people properly that someone had to poop so bad he had to leave the courtroom. You just have to suck it up and say he had to shit so bad he needed a break. Plain and simple. Hit us with the truth. “Emergency defecation situation” just sounds ridiculous, but it did make for another solid news clip.
