The Cleaning Con

When a woman posted an Amazon review for something called “Liquid Ass,” she also showed the world that she’s an evil genius in the making. Liquid Ass is a novelty product that’s exactly what it sounds like, and in the review she described how she used it to trick her boyfriend into cleaning the whole house. Points for creativity.

Shower Caddy

A family in western Sweden investigating which of them was taking an unusually long shower on Sunday morning was surprised to find to an unexpected guest in the bathroom.

When family members living in the townhouse in the Gothenburg suburb of Hisingen awoke on Sunday morning, the shower was already running, the local Göteborgs-Posten (GP) newspaper reported.

However, as it was common for at least one member of the family to shower in the morning, no one took much notice at first.

But after the shower had been running for several hours, family members decided to investigate who among them may have felt the need for an extended scrubbing.

Much to their shock, they discovered a shoeless young man who was otherwise fully clothed, dripping wet in the shower stall.

“I needed to wake up,” the man said, according to GP.

Under questioning from the family, the man was unable to explain how he had made his way into the family’s home, which showed no signs of having been broken into or otherwise damaged by the showering stranger.

“He was mostly likely under the influence of something. But he wasn’t threatening or unpleasant in any way, almost the opposite,” police spokesperson Stefan Gustafsson told the newspaper.

The astonished family has opted not to report the incident to police, who nevertheless did their part to help the escort the apparently harmless bathing bandit on his way.

Awkward Family Story: Heaven Help Me

This is an email sent to the parents of our church’s children’s choir:

Hi Everyone, Sorry I had to cancel choir rehearsal at the last minute last Thursday. I was having abdominal pain all day and it seemed to be getting a little worse and with all the coughing I had been doing I was wondering if it was the bottom of my lungs so I thought I better get to ER. So I went to St. Anthony’s for a 4 1/2 hour visit to find out it was just a bad case of constipation. Anyhow hope this wasn’t TMI. We will rehearse this week and sing on this Sunday, the 23rd, at the 12pm mass. Thank you for your understanding.

In Christ,

Kevin*
