The Tea Party – Crappy Contest Winner

Here is the second of the three winners bonus submission* of the Crappy Contest.

This story was submitted by Jami Carnagey. 

The words are hers, the crappy pictures are mine…



My 2 year old daughter was playing tea party with my husband.

He thought it was so cute that she kept bringing him cups of water.

Until I reminded him…

(the toilet)

He drank three cups before I told him.



Thanks for the laughs, Jami!

*Oops, is has come to my attention that this may be an internet story that was passed around. I had NO idea. It didn’t occur to me to, er, google the submissions. Lesson learned. (It also could be real, no doubt tons of kids have done this.)

Either way, I’ll be picking another submission to crappify and we can just consider this one a tasty bonus. 

UPDATE: she assures me that this is real. That it really happened to them. I believe her! Regardless, I’ll still do another one since I told ya’ll I would.

  6. Keren says:

    Crappify! I think you have just created a new word 🙂

  7. Tina says:

    Ha! My daughter did this to her grandpa a few years ago. Funny and gross. 🙂

  8. Jen says:

    I’ve heard that one before.

    • Laura b. says:

      Did you see the footnote? She knows & already disqualified it.

      • Claire says:

        Sorry ladies but this happens, everywhere, often! My (now 36yr old) brother did this to my grandad in the 70’s, over here in Britain! Just because you’ve heard it doesn’t mean it didn’t happen again…Two year old’s will ever be filthily ingenious!

  9. Michelle says:

    Hmmm this is quite a familiar story…

    it’s a joke that’s been going around the internet for years.. but still super funny! i don’t doubt that it happened but I’m just sayin..

  10. Deirdre says:

    I hope you do another crappy contest. I missed this one, but have a great crappy story.

  11. Sheryl says:

    ‘tasty bonus’ lol…..

  12. Erin says:

    That is still one craptastic little story..even if it isn’t totally true 🙂

  13. Janet says:

    This REALLY happened to me when I was a kid. My little sister, then about 3, offered to bring me a drink of water. She was really sweet, so I though nothing of it. Thankfully, I realized it as soon as it hit my lips, and did an emmy-worthy spit-take! I asked, Where did you get this water?” She replied, “from da ‘mode.” LOL! We still crack up about this 30 years later!

    • Tanya says:

      I did it abt 32 yrs ago to my aunt… One cup of ice cold refreshing toilet water.. Lol. I still love hearing her tell the story. #strangerthanfiction

  14. Lula says:

    My guess – this must have happened to a few people… if not the toilet then the bidet… or dog bowl. Let’s admit, kids do do that. 🙂
    Oh, and the one when they wash their hands in the toilet as they flush it 😀

    • Biolith says:

      I remember ‘discovering’ this great way to save water and being truly mortified by my mother’s reaction. After all, it’s not as though I washed my hands in the bowl! Just the nice fresh water coming in…..

  15. kristin says:

    I made koolaid in the toilet for my little brother once…my mom caught it right before he drank!

  16. Carolyn says:

    I’m totally fine with you illustrating all the random stories on the Internet 😉 (Well, don’t get in trouble for plagiarism, but if you wanted to just put photos to ALL the submissions, I wouldn’t be upset!) 🙂

  17. Shea says:

    This post makes me so glad I don’t have any girls. No tea parties for me!

    • Shea says:

      “Pee parties?” I wonder if this has ever been done with unflushed toliet water…*shudder*

      • Laura says:

        we have a 4 year old who almost NEVER remembers to flush, and a 20 month old who inevitably discovers this fact before I do…but we learned a long time ago never to eat or drink ANYTHING offered by anyone under the age of 6.

    • Bread says:

      Believe it or not, if you give a boy a tea set, he’ll play with it too. And I’m sure he’ll use toilet water as well.

      • Sarah says:

        Um yeah. My son plays tea party all the time and there are no daughters in this house

        • Shea says:

          Well my boys watch Disney Princess movies and have quite a few “girl’s toys.” I’m very much against stereotypes, but this story may have steered my away from tea sets for life 😛

          • Claire H says:

            It’s news to me that boys don’t drink tea/coffee, or push shopping trolleys and baby buggies, or vacuum the floor. I am fairly sure I have seen actual men doing these things, so I don’t see why little boys shouldn’t play with the associated toys. This sort of thing makes up much more of their day to day life than workbenches and toolbelts do after all (hopefully). Also, pouring is fun, tea sets make the best bath toys. Once they’re old enough not to drink the bubbles anyway 😉 .

  18. Kristen says:

    Haha! Is crappified like sweded? Still funny!

  19. Angela says:

    I too have heard this on the internet before (still funny), but it is much better with Crappy Pictures added 😉 Thanks for the bonus!

  20. Kristie says:

    Totally a true story! When I was little my dad was sick so had to stay in bed. Apparently I was quite concerned and decided he needed his fluids. He figured my mom was sending in the glasses of water, but needless to say, I’d found my own source!

  21. Angie says:

    Nearly this exact thing happened to me, but I was the one who nearly drank the toilet water! My son brought me a “cup” of water in an overturned Duplo lego. I was *this* close to drinking it before I realized he can’t reach any faucets.

  22. Carol Gardens says:

    Too funny! My kids played in the bathtub,making pretend coffee for me. I did my part—pretend drinking every cup.

  23. Jenn says:

    Yaoooooo! EVIL MOMMA!

  24. Freya says:

    See, this is one reason Australian toilets trump American ones. MUCH harder to reach in and scoop water out.

  25. Elisabeth says:

    Hehehe ewww … well I’d never heard it before, and I could certainly see it happening to more that a few families … my son puts a cup of warm water on the side of the tub each night and asks me to come and drink my “coffee” … I pretend and dump the rest on him – he thinks that is just great. I think it is great too – not going to drink his filthy bath water!

  26. A teacher at my elementary school (not my class) got the toilet treatment when we were kids. He’d ask kids to fill his cup up and they’d fill it with toilet water. As an adult (and a teacher) this horrifies me…. at the time, the kids just shrugged like, “Well… he shouldn’t be so mean.”

  27. Sarah Richardson says:


    So gross but kind of awesome that she let him drink 3 cups before telling him. Pretty much makes up for the pain of childbirth, right?!


  28. Anna says:

    i caught my 2yo drinking a mystery glass of water and my first thought was the toilet. it helps that her answer to EVERYTHING is currently ‘i don’t know’… as in, ‘where did you get that water?’ ‘i don’t know’. after frantically grabbing the cup off her and panicking that i had no idea how to disinfect her mouth, i discovered our water jug on the floor in the kitchen. she’d been taking one of her empty cups off her little play table and filling it from the jug i always have sitting on the edge of the kitchen bench.

  29. j says:

    You really need to do another contest for I have a great crappy story for you.

  30. Neybug says:

    This also happened in my family. When I was very young my sister and I brought my mom’s friend water from the toilet. She always told this story to us growing up!

  31. Marilyn S says:

    My mother-in-law used to tell that same story from her childhood! haha….

  32. Trisha W. says:

    I believe her too. I’ve heard it’s not that uncommon. Yuck!

  33. Mariah says:

    I don’t remember the exact details of the story, but I did something like this when I was 3. I went to wake my mom up and she said she needed to wipe my face (I guess I had drooled or had a cold or something). I think I remember her telling me to get a wet wash cloth. I guess that was the sleepiness talking. I went in the bathroom and came back, and my mom took it, hesitated, and then said, “How did you get this wet?” I replied proudly, “I put it in the pee-pee water!”

  34. Sarah says:

    Don’t know whether it’s real, but definitely plausible. My daughter came up to me inexplicably wet up to her elbows yesterday. My heart sank when I realized why. Time to buy a toilet lock!

  35. Charlene says:

    Our daughter did the exact same thing but to guests! Opps – I then got her a taller stool for the bathroom sink the next day so that she can get water for herself and “Her Guests” Makes a huge mess but so much better than toilet water.

  36. Jenna Claver says:

    I was SOOOOoooo hoping she would say “the dog dish”….
    but no… :-p

  37. Denise says:

    When I was a teenager, two kids I babysat for brought me a drink. I took one sip & realized they had spit in it multiple times!! Gag. (Although there was probably more malice in my situation, than the sweet kid having a tea party with her dad….)

  38. Steven Scottmartin says:

    That is mean as hell

  39. Tessa says:

    My husband did this to his daddy.
    I had a friend who came out of the bathroom with (chocolate) on her finger trying to give her daddy some. We all know what THAT answer was. 😉

  40. Cyn says:

    Relieved my daughter never found out the free toilet water supply, she just go aim for the water dispenser on the fridge door and floods the kitchen doing so 🙂
    I never did the toilet water drinking thing as a kid, but I drove my mom nut helping her with the laundry soaking my panties in it 🙂 ewww gross!

  41. Ursula says:

    This is so true. It happened to my uncle. While the whole family was watching Ben Hur, he asked (several times) my little cousin to give him water and so he did. Long after the movie was over, out of nowhere, came a question…
    From where did Koki got the water? He was so small.
    Nobody had an answer for that so he asked for another glass of water. Koki, happy to help his uncle, went to the bathroon and got the water from the toilet, went to the family room and gave it to my uncle with a huge, inocent smile.

  42. Marianne says:

    I have heard of this happening to others… Yet another reason we always keep the lid down on the toilets.

  43. carrie says:

    This reminds me of that Jeff Foxworthy bit where his daughter made him a peanut butter and jelly “sandwich” on ritz crackers. He ate it and asked how she made it and she said, “well I chewed up some peanuts and spit them on one side, and then I chewed up some grapes…” bahaha

  44. Hanna says:

    When I was a teenager, I had a group of friends over for lunch one day. Mom had included a veggie tray with cucumber slices in the meal, and we left them on the table to munch on. My toddler little brother came trotting in to the living room where we were hanging out, carrying a couple of cucumber slices. He offered them to one of my friends, a 19 year old guy, who happily ate them. This repeated several times until my brother came in with yet another slice… in his mouth. He carefully took it out, and handed it to my friend exactly the way he had all the others.
