Shower Thoughts

‘Shower thoughts’ is a term that applies to any sort of one-off thought you might have while carrying out a routine task like showering, driving, or daydreaming. It is also a comment stream on Reddit. Nick Offerman plays Ron Swanson on the TV show, Parks and Recreation. On this show he has a knack for kooky aphorisms, often delivered deadpan, with his characteristic gruff and manly manner. On this TV show he once responded to being served a dinner salad, with the comment, “Excuse me, you seemed to have served me what my food eats.” In the above Mashable video, Offerman reads some of Reddit’s shower thoughts in all his Ron Swanson glory. Offerman’s glowering presence give these shower thoughts a pseudo-profound semblance of thought that might seem more insightful than they really are. Below are some more shower thoughts that I liked and wanted to share with you:

  • In the word “scent”, is it the S or the C that is silent?
  • Morticians should tie dead people’s shoelaces together incase there is ever a zombie apocalypse.
  • Global warming is the revenge of dinosaur ghosts because we disturbed their oily slumber.
  • ‘Dictionary’ is the most useless word in the dictionary
  • If the show Full House wanted to be literal, the kids would have been a set of triplets and a set of twins.
  • Are ships named after men still referred to as ‘she’?
  • Shouldn’t we sing Happy Birthday to infants when they’re born, since it’s their actual birthday? 
  • Only one silent letter separates the statements “I am in grade school” and “I am in grad school”. 
  • When I butt dial someone it is also a booty call. 
  • I’d actually be much more hesitant to ask my dad for $20 if he was made of money.
