Enterprising Teen Wants to Bathe in KFC Gravy, Starts GoFundMe
Help British teen Sean Gibson make his weird food dreams come true
Bathing in things that are not water is often a sign of opulence. Bathing in champagne seems pretty dope, if sticky, and bathing in milk is an old-timey beauty secret for getting youthful, bouncy skin. Usually requesting to bathe in a substance is a metaphor, and not literal, for though you may love, say, an incredible ragu a whole lot, actually bathing in it would be borderline unpleasant. And yet, because we live in the most literal era,18-year-old Sean Gibson has made local headlines for setting about to fulfill a dream of taking an actual bath in actual gravy. Not just any gravy will do, either: Gibson's request is for KFC gravy. And he's started a GoFundMe to make it into a reality.
"You maybe thinking [sic], ‘why does this young man desire such a strange venture?’" Gibson writes. "Long and short of it is, I bloody love KFC gravy and it would a pleasure of not just mine but also other lovers to see such a feat." I mean, whatever else, the young man has moxy.
Is it something he would actually seriously do if the time came? That's sort of unclear. "The idea started as a joke and it’s nothing more," Gibson told Chronicle Live. To me it sounds like a Mitchell & Webb skit about Extremely British Behavior.
In either case, Gibson is currently seeking 475 GBP for the opportunity to fill a bathtub in gravy. He has currently raised zero pounds. Godspeed, Gibson. And to the rest of the UK: Stay weird.
