View Full Version : Do You Ever Scream Out Something Profound In The Shower?

02-26-2008, 11:13 PM
I was just taking a shower, and I realized that I was going, "Baaaahhhh. Baaaahhh," like a sheep. Then sometimes I'd "mooooo" like a cow, really loud.

I live in an apartment, so my upstairs neighbors can most likely hear me. It is an older lady I think I saw moving in about a month ago. I heard all the banging around upstairs from me, and I saw her with movers at the elevator, bringing her stuff up.

She must wonder what the heck is going on down here.

Sometimes, when I've just shaved, I can rip the best flaggalation sounds by pressing my hands to my smoothely shaven face when it is wet. I usually get juicy fart noises like this, but in the shower, where it echoes, it is really loud and actually sounds very close to a power drill.

You know how I post about drilling holes in my head? Well when I make the power drill sound, and follow that up with screams of agony, it must really sound like I AM drilling holes in my head - or someone's anyway.

Maybe I keep prisoners in my shower with the all the sheep and cows and drill holes in their heads? Maybe I'm a mad scientist and I am transplanting people's brains into sheep and cows? That's it!

Baaaahhh! Baaaaah! Moooooo!

Sometimes I just break down and yell, "I'm not crazy!" really, really loud. Or "I am not INSANE!" a similar version of that. Then I laugh the laugh of an evil Uberdork - the signature call of the Nerd experiencing Euphoria!

I'm not crazy!

Sometimes I just yell, "Aaaaaaaghhhh!"

I have a theory that all this helps me breathe through the steam better in a warm shower. I cannot sing and haven't tried since a tramatic incident doing Skid Row cover songs that happened when I was back in grade school.

But the barn yard animal calls and power tools are really getting carried away!

I think my neighbor upstairs might be scared of me.

I wonder if this thread is new enough for stillakid? ;)

...and, no, I don't scream anything profound in the shower. I have been known to scream when the hot water runs out, though. :eek:

Now Tycho, did you take your meds today??

Go to sleep young man and tell us of the strange hallucinogenic dreams in the morning.

I just do the helicopter. :thumbsup:

I scream at the drain and tell it I'm not paying it alimony, regardless of the number of my kids it claims to have had.

you do know flagellation isn't farting right?

vocally or physically slick?

It's not? What is it? I may have to plead guilty to False-Farting.

02-27-2008, 09:48 AM
We've all screamed out Slick's mom's name when we're finished in the shower right?

Flagellation is the act of whipping (Latin flagellum, "whip") the human body. Specialised implements for it include rods, switches and the cat-o-nine-tails. Typically, whipping is performed on unwilling subjects as a punishment; however, flagellation can also be submitted to willingly, or performed on oneself, in religious or sadomasochistic contexts.

Why is there a term like flagelating or whatever, being erroneously used for "farting" all this time?

Wasn't there like some kind of medical term for farting? Like you were more sophistocated if you used that term instead of "fart."

Anyway, I just shaved this morning and I'm about to cool my face off with my morning shower. Ready or not, my neighbors are going to hear some noise!

BTW, isn't drilling holes in your own head some form of sado-masochism? I know you can't do it with a whip, but...

OH - reminds me of an important safety tip: You may not want to use an electric power drill to puncture holes in your skull while in the shower since the water and electricity don't mix well and you could injure yourself by an unintended shock. Please drill with the water off - thanks.

This has been a safety tip brought to you by Tycho.

Why is there a term like flagelating or whatever, being erroneously used for "farting" all this time?"Flatualting" is the term you're looking for.

flatulation. flatulate. flatulent. flatuating.

02-27-2008, 10:36 AM
vocally or physically slick?Most definitely physically.

The warmer the water the bigger the rotor.

Flagalence....I think that's a word, Poindexter said it in Revenge of the Nerds.

I've been known to belt out a few tunes in the shower, but never animal sounds. :eek: lol

02-27-2008, 02:36 PM
:confused:How did I get in here???????:confused:

Animal sounds in the shower? That's a new one. You quit taking your pills again Tycho?

I prefer "Pet Sounds" in the shower. Hearing Brian Wilson while seeing myself nude makes me appreciate even more the fact that my body doesn't resemble his.

02-27-2008, 09:59 PM
I yell "Look out below" as I let one go.

So has anyone here found my safety pointers useful while they were drilling holes in their head?

I am happy to say that I haven't been electrocuted yet!

Flagellates are single-celled protista with one or more flagella, a whip-like organelle often used for propulsion. Flatulence can also be used for propulsion, but it isn't nearly as efficient and has been condemned by Al Gore for leading to am increase in Global Stinking.

It can also mean "to whip" like in Devo's lesser known hit Flagellate it (flagellate it good.)

Back to the topic of the thread (if there ever was one) I sing and babble in the shower all the time. Usually I don't even realize I'm doing it until I look up into my shaving mirror and see myself.

I've started shouting "The Chickens Are Mine!" while in the shower - and for no apparent reason.

Then I listed the things I like to eat over Thanksgiving Dinner - all at an extreme high volume.

I can't sing worth @#$! so I guess I gotta shout something!

I know what I'll do next: I'll take a lamenated (read: waterproof) restaurant menu with me into the shower and read it from the top of my lungs!

I should get an Italian restaurant menu so that I'll really mess up the pronounciations! :crazed:

I think of profound things in the shower, but they are just too awesome to say out loud. :cheeky:

Getting back to flagellating, did you know that you/we were once a flagellate? flagellate:
Aquatic protozoan of the subphylum Mastigophora, characterized by possessing one or more flagella (whiplike organs).

I am going to have to go on with my recovery from surgery without home nursing care, as I am progressing beyond the point where I will need it.

I am now considering ways to entertain myself. I am considering bringing the remote controlled farting machine in with me to the examination room at my doctor's office for use at my next follow-up appointment. :thumbsup:

There is usually 2 doctors in the room with me: one of my surgeons and one of their interning physician assistants - all of whom I know. They have great senses of humor, but with two of them there and my hand on the remote trigger which I can palm so as to keep out of view, I might have a great time.

Phhhhffffffttttttt! :D
