Hot Tub Horror

A friend told me this story well over a year ago, and it has provided such ongoing entertainment that I've held off blogging it. Until now [insert maniacal cackle]. 

It goes like this. Some friends went on vacation because they'd purchased a time share. When they got to their destination, the wife was disappointed that the hot tub had been drained. Eager to start relaxing, she threw on her swimsuit, jumped into the tub, and turned on the jets full blast. 

All the husband heard after that was screaming. And screaming. And more screaming. 

So the game I've been playing ever since I heard this story involves asking people one simple question: What came out of the hot tub jets?

Take just a moment to register your guess. 

Go ahead, I'll wait. 

To check your answer, I've compiled a list of responses, which l share with you now. 

Most common:
Snakes
Spiders
Roaches
Rats
Mice
Worms

Southwest inspired:
Scorpions 
Lizards

Perhaps party related:
Condoms
Vodka (perhaps amazing?)

Non-animal but equally horrifying:
Poop
Blood

I think this list represents a pretty good cross-section of answers, yet not one is correct. 

When the husband burst into the room, what did he find his wife covered in? 


















Maggots. 

And I'll leave you with that, just in case you feel like you're having a bad day.

How... How in the name of heaven... how did the workings of a hot tub get to be overrun by maggots?!? And why in the name of all things holy did they not put up a sign that said it was "broken" DO NOT USE?
