Get Wet

We all know people get their jollies from some pretty wacky things… and most of them wind up here at one point or another. But one of the more bizarre, yet seemingly innocent, obsessions I’ve seen has got to be swimming with your clothes on (or getting muddy with your clothes on, getting sprayed with water with your clothes on, etc.).

Sure practitioners are all about fun and they’re excited about an upcoming event in Thailand, but they also have a serious side: “It is very important to learn to swim well in clothes and early in life!” they say!

Things start to get creepy, though, on pages like the Parents Guide (read the part titled “Father catches his Son in the Shower” and tell me your skin doesn’t start to crawl).

The site is ridiculously detailed and goes deeper than I could ever imagine. If you’re sitting at your desk wishing you could be sitting in a bath with your clothes on, don’t worry: you’re not alone. And who woulda’ thunk it?

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
