The grossest picture of the year so far?
Blog Guy, I know you hate all those photos of people starved for attention, who take icy “polar bear” swims in the winter. But I heard that during one of those swims, in Canada…
Let me stop you right there. It’s true, the fabled Eugene “Toilethead” Johnson made a surprise appearance, arriving at the beach by swimming up through a public toilet. A very dirty public toilet, it seems.
Yikes! You mean he just comes up out of the toilet bowl like some kind of urban legend?
Yes. I believe he uses an underwater navigation system set to a transmitter hidden behind a toilet paper dispenser in the facility. As you can see, his timing was unfortunate.
Blog Guy, this is just more of your made-up garbage because you’re too lazy to do any research. Is this really Eugene “Toilethead” Johnson?
I don’t really know who he is.
Well can you tell me one TRUE thing about this scene?
Yes. In addition to what you see here, this guy was carrying what appeared to be a log-shaped chocolate bar for an extra prop, if you catch my drift.
Blog Guy, are you making that up?
I wish I were. Ever since our photographer told me that, I get the heebie-jeebies when I pass a candy machine.
