The legend of Cory “Poop” Johnson lives on. The former Kentucky defensive lineman just inked a new deal with the Toronto Argonauts in the Canadian Football League, and the tweet announcing it has the internet laughing:

Of course, if you’re reading this, you already know how CJ got his nickname. In an interview with Alan Cutler, Johnson shared his weight loss secret: pooping.

“I guess because I poop so much. I try to poop like five times a day, three times a day. It’s hard to keep weight when you’ve got so much going out.”

The last two years, Johnson played with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, racking up 28 tackles and five sacks. Prior to joining the CFL, he spent time on Atlanta Falcons and Kansas City Chiefs practice squads. At UK, he tallied 77 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and 1 fumble recovery over two seasons.

Now seems like a great time to remind everyone that CJ goes by “Poop Mane” on social media, where he also posted this submission for the ESPN Body Issue:

Wait until the rest of the internet sees that.
