The pool party, a staple of summer fun can quickly turn sinister, or at least become, the worst pool party ever. Don’t believe us? What if your pool party ended with an elephant invasion, a coma, blindness, fat Mermaids and a severed hand?
The No Water in the Pool Party
“Water appears to be a critical element in the enjoyment of aquatic style parties. I can tell you that the ‘no diving’ signs quite possibly saved my life, though.”
I know how much all of you HATE to read, but you MUST read this one lady’s account of her waterless pool party she threw herself when her apartment complex STILL hadn’t fill the pool by June 22.
Overcrowded Wave Pool Party
Trying to keep cool amidst a scorching heat wave, the Japanese flock to Tokyo Summerland, a popular water park that’s home to the world’s most crowded wave pool. During the summer, it’s been said that there’s so many people jammed in there that it’s hard to find water (what about pee?) inside the pool! It’s literally a sea of heads.
Toxic Cloud Pool Party
Seven people fainted, six are ok but one 21-year-old was in a coma.
Say what? Jägermeister threw a pool party in Mexico and dumped liquid nitrogen into the pool. Moments later, limp bodies were dragged out of the pool. Nitrogen displaced oxygen from the air above the pool, leaving none for the swimmers to breathe. The guests were thus inhaling noxious nitrogen gas — and were essentially being asphyxiated.
A foam party serves no purpose outside of an underage Cancun nightclub or a struggling Frat house where nerds hopelessly try to get to second base with girls drunk on wine coolers. True story!
In a Naples, FL, nightclub, 40 people ended up in the ER after revelers experienced an intense burning in their eyes, plus temporary blindness. “I felt like I had shards of glass in my eyes,” said one 22-year-old. Officials think the soap used wasn’t properly diluted. So much for good, clean fun.
A Good-Ol’ Fashioned Severed Hand Party
A 34-year-old makeup artist for a theater company had the bright idea to prank his 15-year-old niece by planting a mutilated and severed “hand” in the middle of her birthday party. The Mirror reported that “officers cordoned off the grim scene after horrified neighbors discovered the bloody ‘hand’, which had its finger, chopped off,” and the bloody stump was “put into evidence bags and forensics teams were radioed.” The man later apologized for stirring up such a ruckus, and, presumably, for being the worst uncle in the world.
Fat Mermaid Pool Party
Mermaids have adorned events at adult parties and entertained at children’s parties for years. But you know what nobody likes, a fat Mermaid. It’s just plain dangerous.
Truckin’ Pool Party
Have you ever been to a tailgate and seen the fun-loving folks who put a tarp in their truck bed and filled it up with water? While the truck-pool might look like a ton of fun, what you don’t know is that the improvised aboveground is doing a number on your truck.
Elephant Crashed My Pool Party
Nothing brings a pool party to a halt quite like an elephant draining your pool. But hey at least he didn’t pee in the pool.
But apparently this happens all the time in Africa…
Blow-Up Pool Party
Living in a concrete jungle doesn’t excuse adults stuffed into an inflatable pool with cans of beer in koozies. There’s no filtration or chlorine so you’re basically stewing in a disease-ridden cesspool and no matter anyone will admit to, someone ALWAYS pees in the pool.
Virtual Pool Party
Just when you thought the inflatable pool party was possibly the saddest, we hit you with the virtual pool party. There is a whole world out there that is only lived online. Take Sims for example, it’s a virtual world for complete shut-ins and agoraphobics.
