July 5 - International Don't Drink Pee Day

That's right, you heard me. DON'T DRINK PEE.

You would think that this would be a no brainer; that, of course, we don't drink the pee!

And yet, some people DO drink pee, because they believe that it has miraculous healing powers. They argue that everything the body makes is sterile, and that ancient, unspecified cultures drank pee.

To which I reply: I LAUGH IN YOUR GENERAL DIRECTION! Dude, that is so gross! Sterile or no, there is not a single argument you could produce that would get me to drink pee, mine or someone else's, although drinking your own pee is marginally less fantastically disgusting than drinking someone else's.

But I digress.

DON'T DRINK THE PEE! I have to go wash my hands now.

Any other bodily fluids we should omit?

I am reminded of "Waterworld" where Kevin Costner drinks his (filtered) pee. Ugh.
Is it still drinking if we only gargle the pee?

That scene in Waterworld haunted me for years after that. Just wrong.

No worries here.

Bear Grylls drank his own pee on 'Man vs. Wild' a few weeks ago. I am going to therapy for it now.
