Dr. Kenny Banh said that the California man came into the hospital with a grocery bag that contained a toilet paper roll with a "giant, long tapeworm" wrapped around it, according to KDVR.

"Oh, my goodness my guts are coming out of me," the man allegedly told Banh, KDVR reported.

The tapeworm measured 5 ½ feet and is believed to have infected the man by ingesting raw salmon in his sushi everyday, according to KDVR.

In January 2017, doctors warned about Japanese tapeworm parasites found in U.S. salmon and said they could grow to be 30 feet long, KDVR reported.

Often times, people don't know they are infected. Some symptoms include abdominal discomfort, nausea, loose stools, and weight loss, according to KDVR.

Old joke

Man goes to the doctor
"Sir, you have a tapeworm" and shoves a cooky up his butt. " Don't worry this always works, come see me for the next 4 days"
The next three days he comes in and the doctor shoves a cookie up his butt.
On the fourth day he arrives and the doctor has a baseball bat.
"What are you going to do with that?"
"Well when the worm comes looking for his cookie I'm gonna bash his head in"

That's nothing. There is a six foot tapeworm that is the current speaker of the house.

Tapeworms could help with the obesity epidemic, especially if you eat too much McDonald's.
