“I’ve decided to start calling my toilet Jim instead of John. I go to the Jim every morning”

“Instead of John, I call my bathroom Jim. That way it sounds better when I say I went to the Jim first thing this morning” is a jocular gym saying that has been printed on many images. “Instead of John I call my bathroom Jim, that way it sounds better when I say I went to the Jim first thing this morning” was posted on Twitter by Tyler Bailey (and others) on January 27, 2013.
 
The saying probably originated on the Sickipedia website, or on an ecard.
 
“Toilet” is sometimes used instead of “bathroom.” “I’ve decided to start calling my toilet Jim instead of John. That way, it sounds better when I say I go to the Jim every morning” was posted on Twitter by Bradley Brown on February 3, 2013. “RT @sickipediabot: I’ve decided to call my toilet ‘Jim’ instead of ‘John’. It sounds better to tell people I go to the Jim every morning.#fb” was posted on Twitter by Gεno J ®™ on August 20, 2013.

We should all call our bathroom Jim instead of John.
Then we could tell everyone that we always go to the Jim first thing in the morning.

Name your bathroom Gym or Jim, instead of John. That way you can say you go to the gym/Jim every morning.
