Patton Oswalt had quite an eventful appearance on Conan last night. We’ve already covered the excellent “Patton Oswalt Gets The Crap Kicked Out Of Him” supercut Conan put together. But that was only part of the fun, because Patton had diarrhea stories to tell.
As Oswalt explains in the clip above, he caught a nasty stomach virus immediately after the holidays. Fortunately, he managed to entertain himself during the miserable illness by comparing its stages and symptoms to movies like Die Hard and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Along the way, he may have stumbled upon what Tolkien was really trying to say when he wrote The Hobbit.
