Is Anyone Actually ‘Poopsocking’ Diablo 4?

Poopsocking, in case you’re too blissfully innocent to deduce, refers to the practice of playing a video game so compulsively you don’t even want to waste time to go to the bathroom, and therefore just poop in a sock while continuing to game. But has poopsocking ever been more than an urban legend?

Most non-gamers I’ve said the phrase to in the last few days while writing this blog have understood immediately what “poopsocking” meant, and begged me not to say anything else. But if you’re still unclear on what’s going on here, the first official definition of the phrase was put on Urban Dictionary in 2003: “An item used to hide poop from mommy (Typically stored under the bed). Don’t let her find it.”
