I once ate a large cow pie, and got a bad case of projectile diarrhea. I had to be placed in a tub of warm water to clean me out.

Probably inadequately washed, lettuce in salad greens always get to me. I'm also lactose intolerant so soy milk helps! Yogurt makes my constipation better, though I have not tried it for diarrhea.
