Reddit user saturdaysadsack recalled one Christmas Eve after moving into a new apartment, when their parents came to stay. That evening, the mother proceeded to eat half a tin of fudge despite her husband's warning: "You know what happens!" While watching midnight Mass from Vatican City on TV, the commenter noticed strange noises from his mom's direction before she yelled "I need the bathroom!" and started to get up. She didn't make it — and diarrhea ruined her flannel nightgown, the light-colored carpet, the walls, the couch, a kitchenette, and a nativity scene. Since the commenter had just moved in, a 2 a.m. trip was required for cleaning supplies, followed by four hours of cleaning. "When I woke up around noon, Mom was sitting in the kitchen, eating more fudge. I walked over to her, took the tin of fudge, dumped what was left in the trash, and took it to the dumpster outside. We never spoke of the incident again."
