: : : (caution: mildly disgusting)

: : : My wife is a social worker in a residential facility for troubled youth. One of her young charges "did a whirly" yesterday, voluntarily and all by himself. That's when you stick your head in the toilet and flush it. No kidding. He went on and on about how cool it was when the water splashed his face and it was sucking his head, etc.

: : : I only found one Google reference, under "do a swirly"+"toilet". It must not be too popular... yet!

: : That's amazing.

: It was called a swirly in my grade school.

::: Mr. Crapper seems to have an inordinate amount of experience (over many years) in the area of toilets. We will send all questions of this nature to him in the future.
