We’re all guilty of having strange thoughts occur to us when we’re in the middle of doing something else. Usually these bizarre musings are so idiosyncratic that its embarrassing to voice them out loud, for fear of being roundly mocked by everyone else you know. Only this afternoon when I was eating my lunch, did I have one of these thoughts myself. In the park, I saw a pigeon land next to me, and it proceeded to void its bowels all over the ground.
It suddenly occurred to me at that moment that birds never have to hold in a poo. Perhaps they’re not even aware that they can, considering that they can cr*p virtually anywhere they want to.
But luckily, there is a place where strangers can share some of the weirdest thoughts they’ve ever had, and discuss their crazy theories at length. That forum is called ShowerThoughts, a subreddit that’s probably one of the most entertaining corners of the internet to visit. Shower thoughts are described as “the types of thoughts you might have while carrying out a routine task like showering, driving, or daydreaming.
At their best, Showerthoughts are universally relatable and find the amusing/interesting within the mundane.” Thus, we’ve collated the very best examples for your perusal. Enjoy!
1. “The object of golf is to play the least amount of golf”
2. “The sinking of the Titanic must have been
a miracle to the lobsters in the kitchen”
3. “Scotch aged 12 years sounds a lot better than Scotch from 2005”
4. “Waterboarding at Guantanamo Bay sounds super-rad
if you don’t know what either of those things are”
5. “The person who would proofread Hitler’s
speeches was literally a grammar Nazi”
