Grab a wet towel, give it a twist and you've got the best locker room weapon around. The sound of a towel connecting with flesh is almost as loud as the scream you hear right after. Towel snapping has been around since cavemen discovered they could take the skin of a sabretooth tiger, dip it in a tar pit and then flick it at their buddy Thor. It was probably invented some time just before the wedgie.

If you've ever been involved in a towel snapping war, you know there are two sides to the story. If you're the one twisting and snapping, it can be one of the best locker room activities around. If you're the one getting hit with the towel, it's one of the sharpest pains you can imagine. Giving your buddy a quick flick with a towel may seem hilarious, but it can actually be pretty dangerous. A towel flicked at the wrong place at a bad angle can seriously hurt someone. There's rumors that a guy once had his sack ripped open after getting hit with his towel. (Some say his nuts fell right out and got mixed in with the whiffle balls.) This horror story and others have led many schools and swimming pools to ban towel snapping.

It may seem funny, but be aware of the dangers. If you're going to have a little fun with a wet towel, keep in mind the following rules:

1. Only flick your towel at a friend who you know will find it funny. Don't flick it at some kid you don't know just so you can hurt them.

2.Don't go crazy. A towel snap may be funny the first time - but know when to give it a rest.

3.Don't snap your towel at someone who's totally defenseless. A wet towel hitting bare flesh is much more painful than hitting someone who's wearing pants.

4.Be prepared to get it back. Don't snap someone with a towel, laugh and then cry like a baby when they snap you back.

Think Before You Snap

I personally think towel snapping is terrible because you're disrespecting the feelings of others and, cleary, it just hurts. I wouldn't want someone to hit me with a wet towel, would you? So next time think before you act!
