Shower Bunny

Postby Beane Disciple » Mon Apr 20, 2009 12:10 pm

Term we used to use back in my Frat tastic days. Used to make fun of someone who spends an inordinate amount of time with/has a little too much affinity for another dude. The suggestion of the definition (the personification of a bunny rabbit who takes showers with you) is illogical yet extremely funny on several levels.

Baseball usage: when someone develops a disgustingly optimistic view of a players stats and/or potential (typically young, nubile "sleeper" types) that develops into an unhealthy man-crush bordering on obsession.
In a sentence: "Dude I'm sure Matt Wieters is going to be pretty good but you can't trade Ian Kinsler for him; what is he your shower bunny or something?"

That's funny, but I think it takes a little too much explaining. I'll make sure Rudy sees it. If he likes it, it goes in.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.

Ah, trying to one-up the term 'man-crush'....

Shower bunny is a funny term but it does take a bit to explain. And it's so easy to make a homosexual reference with man-crushes that it feels uninspired (though 'shower bunny' is rather inspired).

This might be only funny to Yankee fans but what about saying someone is giving them the 'Suzyn Waldman Treatment'.

For reference, see here: ... owing.html

If you haven't heard Ms. Waldman's announcement of Roger Clemens, you haven't lived.... ... oId=695991
