Darts star Cameron Menzies has been dumped out of a PDC Qualifying School event after missing a match to use the bog.
The 31-year-old failed to make his time slot for the oche in Milton Keynes on Monday because he was too busy having a No.2, meaning his first ever PDC Tour Card bid is down the toilet.
Officials disqualified Menzies for not appearing on time, with opponent Adam Neale-Smith instead receiving a welcome bye into the next round.
He later revealed on social media: “Nature calls, you got to go. Explained but still eliminated. They phoned and I said I’m in the toilet. They said okay. Still papped me.
“Mate, I needed a s***. I had ten minutes between games. I went to the disabled toilet as our toilets are a mess.
“They phone, I explained in the toilet, and they said OK. Then I was eliminated.
“I understand the rules fully but I had to go man. I was having the s**** for f***'s sake. S*** happens.”
Menzies later joked: “Does anyone need to go toilet when nervous or am a just a idiot” followed by laughing emojis.
Fans certainly saw the funny side on Twitter, with one replying: “Try Pampers for a sponsorship”.
Another quipped: “If you s*** yourself when playing that [would] be wrong can’t win”.

While one joked: “Stay off the curries”.
Meanwhile, Raymond van Barneveld’s first bid for a PDC Tour Card also failed when he slumped to defeat against Pero Ljubic.
Van Barneveld, who had stormed through his opening three matches, came unstuck in his first proper test against the Croatian.
He was only two wins short of qualifying for the Final Stage, although there will be further chances for him to book his place on Tuesday and Wednesday.
