An Australian woman who goes by the name of “Denshan” on Imgur resorted to seek help on social media when she found herself stuck in a bathtub lathered with coconut oil.
Down with a chest infection and feeling homesick, the woman decided to take a relaxing DIY “remedy” bath. “Took some antibiotics and a Valium and thought — I will have a relaxing bath. I found some bath salts. Lit some candles and poured in some coconut oil,” she wrote on Imgur.
But things got out of control and turned into a horrible ordeal when Denshan realized she couldn’t get out of the bathtub because she used too much oil.
“Went to get out after pulling the plug and I just slide around like a giant greased up potato in a roasting dish. There is no traction. No grip. Just me and my fat body slipping around covered in oil. F**k home beauty remedies. SOS,” she added along with a picture of her legs in the tub.
Internet users came together to give her solutions to get out of the slippery situation. Some of them even grabbed the opportunity to make some jokes.
“Flop your arms over the side of the top and ooze out of it like a zoidberg,” one person wrote.
“Fill it again, the oil will float and you can exit by standing up,” said another genius.
“You're gonna need at least 50 lbs of sand. Have it dumped next to the tub so you can beach yourself,” read another comment.
“I escaped by refilling with water and cleaning the bath with closet soap like product. Took 30 mins. White girl idiocy at its greatest,” Denshan replied.
The woman also wrote that her inbox was later filled with messages from men with foot fetish.
