Picture an average guy talking about his bowel movements, playing video games, and naming his penis Gilbert. You couldn't run away fast enough. And yet, Channing Tatum touched on all these topics during his Reddit AMA yesterday in support of the Omaze campaign, and came off completely charming and likable. Go figure.

There's a lot to love about the Magic Mike XXL star's AMA, which includes revelations like his favorite sandwich being a PB&J with Cheetos smashed inside. We handpicked five particularly enjoyable quotes that will provide a touch more insight into the man, the myth, the legend.

He went No. 2 in a blizzard.
"I just went to Iceland and tried to do a small expedition across the glacier, and we didn't make it. We had to be emergency evacuated as there was a white out blizzard, which I got to take a poop in. It actually freezes before it hits the ground."

He knows not to mess with Joe Manganiello.
"It would be a messy fight. The light would probably bounce off of his pectoral muscles and blind me."

He's got a famous friend, and a dry sense of humor.
"The last picture I took on my phone I was going into a meeting, and there was a TV on the wall playing CNN, and they were talking about Jurassic World shattering box office openings, so I sent that to my buddy Pratt. I'm just really proud of him, happy for him. It also said something about southeast Texas weather pressure. That's what I was really trying to tell Pratt, to make sure he was aware of a pressure front coming in."

He's got the best survival plan for a zombie attack.
"Oh man. Crossbow, straight up, and I'd want an army of ninja chimpanzees that crush people all around me. Or I would just go to Sandra Bullock's house, as I'm sure she has all that stuff because she's dope and kick-ass.

He, too, is obsessed with Matt Bomer.
"No matter if you're a man, woman, cat, hamster, you will get lost in Matt Bomer's eyes. I don't know what they are made of outside of dreams and rainbows and amazingness, but it truly doesn't matter. And when he sings. It's like God gave with both hands and then grew a third hand and graced him with more. He's crazy talented."

Likewise, Chan. Likewise.
