Exclusive Details

Kal Penn had a mid-air bathroom emergency during an American Airlines flight earlier today ... as in, the toilets BROKE at 10,000 feet ... and the pilot decided to ground the plane ASAP.

The "Harold & Kumar" actor was aboard a flight from LAX to Dallas when something went wrong with the plumbing ... so the captain decided to make an unscheduled landing in Albuquerque to avoid a potentially putrid situation on-board.

Once they touched down in New Mexico, Kal tweeted from the runway ... "toilet overflowed." He added, "My 1st emergency landing cuz of poop. Kinda funny kinda not."

A rep for AA explained, "The lavatories were inoperable, so we landed in Albuquerque briefly to service them, for the convenience of our customers. We apologized to our passengers for the inconvenience."

The moral of the story -- s*** happens.

Have your tray table up, and your seat back in the full upright position.

I hope he arrived at the world famous Albuquerque Holiday Inn.
Where the air smells like warm root beer.
And the towels are oh so fluffy.

And you can eat your soup right out of the ashtrays if you wanna.

It's OK, they're clean.

Just another affirmation that Twitter is for egomaniacs who think that the entire world needs to know every inane detail that happens in their self-orbiting worlds.
