Sometimes in life you can find copious amounts of pleasure at someone else’s misfortune. Like if your other half ate a full bar of laxative chocolate…
A woman took to social media to tell the actual world about her husband’s mishap when he ate 12 doses of the unusual ‘treat’.
I, for one, never even knew that laxative chocolate was a thing. Whatever happened to Dulcolax? Senokot even?

Author Abby Jimenez let her 60,000 followers (not many then, eh?) know about her fella’s cock up. The post on Facebook has now been liked over 160,000 times and shared over 190,000 times.
In the post, she wrote: “Oh my God, I have never laughed so f***ing hard in my LIFE.
“So last night my husband took some Ex-Lax. Then this morning, some s**t started going down. Like, literally. He looked at the packaging and realized that when it said to eat 1-2 squares, it meant the tiny squares, not an entire block. He ate 12 DOSES of Ex-Lax.
“(Husband, baby, I can see where the mistake was made. With that whole block of chocolate wrapped up like one dose, and it flipped backwards like it was, I get it. But good Lord, I can’t even with this.)
“So I’m calling Poison Control because he thought he was dying and I literally cannot stop laughing. I’m barely able to talk, I’m laughing so hard. The guy on the other end probably thought it was a prank call.”

She continued: “I swear to God, I hope they record their calls and enjoy that one at the staff meeting later, because even thinking about me trying to explain that my 39-year-old husband just ate a whole brick of Ex-Lax is making me wheeze.
“The guy was like, ‘The biggest risks are cramping, dehydration, and diaper rash.’ Motherf***ing DIAPER RASH.
“I was NOT ready for this dude to come at me with diaper rash. I completely lost it. My husband was so p**sed (from the bathroom of course). The Poison Control guy kept chuckling and going, ‘Oh boy. Oooooooh boy. You’ll need to get some DESITIN.’ DEAD.
“I am not equipped to deal with this kind of crisis. I know it could have been super serious, but OMG. And the funniest part of all is he thought he only took a half dose because he only ate one bar.
“He’s going to be fine. I’m still crying. I can’t even drink my latte because I keep choking thinking about it and spitting my coffee back into my mug. I had to lay down sideways in a restaurant booth because I was laughing so hard I couldn’t breathe, three full hours after this happened. I kept clearing my throat on the call with Poison Control like, ‘Ahem. Okay, I know this is serious. Please continue. AHAHAHAHAHA!!!'”
Abby added: “He let me share this story. I have no idea why. All I know is it’s a gift to the universe.”
She hit the nail on the head, what a gift.
