It is officially summer, which means it is officially pool season. And while taking in a dip in the pool is the absolute best way to beat the summer heat, there is one major downside: people (largely children) peeing or having bouts of diarrhea in the pool. Yeah, gross!
To discourage people from using the pool as a discreet bathroom, the Center for Disease Control has released a series of gifs that work as a guide for healthy swimming, which immediately got tons of traction on Twitter, for what we think are clearly obvious reasons.
Another shows a kid swimming in the toilet, with the caption that “diarrhea and swimming don’t mix” in order to illustrate the point that using the pool as a toilet is basically like using the toilet as a pool, which is hopefully something you aren’t in the habit of doing. And if you aren’t, then it makes for a hilariously gross image that does illustrate the point, but at what cost?
