Does 'The Thing' (Benjamin Grimm) take dumps?

I was watching the 1st Fantastic Four movie the one with Jessica Alba and it just hit me, can The Thing even take a shit? If so does he shit rocks?

Since shit is made from what we eat, it seems unlikely unless he eats rocks.

? He doesn't eat? The movie version eats at Denny's, and the comic version likes making sandwiches (and eats twinkies).

I'm saying it's unlikely that he shits rocks unless he's eating some kind of rocks. If he's eating Denny's and Twinkies, he'll create shits like my college roommate.

I am pretty sure that Grimm is still "human" beneath his rocky exterior. So he still breathes and presumably digests food. Maybe this is why he dates Alicia Masters, a blind woman.

Wiping could be problematic. He should use a bidet or hose himself off when he's done.

We need the reverse view to truly answer this question.

Wait, he doesn't have connected bones in his fingers? His rock-like exterieor is actually excretion from his kidneys?

Yes. The comics 616 and Ultimate universes have both mentioned that he does use the restroom. He takes a piss and can take a shit like any normal human.

I could understand the butthole hidden behind all that cheek rock. But where is his weiner? A rock weiner? And if he does have one, isn't it supposed to look erect at all times?

Your avatar makes more sense every time you post something.

Sometimes, when I take a shit, it looks a little bit like The Thing.
