Baths are a great way to unwind after a long day of garbage reality. This bath did not fit that bill.

On Thursday, Imgur user denshan posted to Imgur live from the tub - inspiring, BTW - to let the internet know that, thanks to a heavy hand with the coconut oil, she'd gotten herself stuck there.

"Went to get out after pulling the plug and I just slide around like a giant greased up potato in a roasting dish,"

she wrote. "There is no traction. No grip."

We see how that might be difficult.

Luckily, denshan eventually managed to get herself free. "I escaped by refilling with water and cleaning the bath with closest soap like product," she wrote.

Perhaps a bath bomb would be better next time.



Baths are a great way to relax after a stressful day, and with these luxury products bathing just got more exciting.

The post instantly went viral, with hundreds of imgur users offering up advice.

One wrote: “Flop your arms over the side of the top and ooze out of it like a zoidberg.

Another suggested: “Fill it again, the oil will float and you can exit by standing up.

A slightly less helpful user told her: “You’re gonna need at least 50 lbs of sand. Have it dumped next to the tub so you can beach yourself” and one pointed out: “You didn’t chose the Tub life, the Tub life chose you.

Meanwhile others were distracted by her feet, with several asking if she had “broken her ankle”.



The people of the internet responded accordingly to her predicament.

The optical illusion is the latest picture to confuse internet users.
People struggled to work out whether the lady's legs had streaks of paint on them, or whether they were oily Image is latest in a long line of optical brainteasers to baffle the internet.
Whilst many users were quick to point out that the legs were shiny or plastic, others corrected them by pointing out that the legs are actually covered in white paint marks.

Indeed, on closer inspection, it becomes obvious that there's several streaks of paint running down the thighs, as well as on the knees. Instagram user @leonardhoespams, who originally posted the snap, confirmed that it was in fact paint on her legs.

This is not the first time netizens have appeared divided over an optical illusion.


The lady (Instagram user @leonardhoespams) who uploaded it pointed out that the legs were, in fact, covered in paint.
