Thanks for a funny Friday!  Swimmers rule.  Although, I have been told this skill is also good for taking out the smelly trash and washing the shampoo out of your hair without soap getting in your nose. 


(If you have no idea what I’m talking about, see the Human Nose Clip post.)

    • Nicole @ running around the rock July 9, 2011, 12:07 am

      That’s my niece, she’s 10 years old and apparantly the only one on her swim team (100 kids) that can do it! Not as easy as it looks 🙂

    • Marie July 9, 2011, 10:57 am

      That one is also my very favorite.

  • Lauren @ Neeps and Taters July 8, 2011, 11:01 pm

    I giggled so hard that this… I tried forever and ever when you made the earlier post. I could not do it for the life of me, and my brother was like “what in the HECK are you doing over there?!” lol!

  • Kate (What Kate is Cooking) July 8, 2011, 11:13 pm

    Hahaha! I can’t do it, so bummed!

  • eatmovelove July 8, 2011, 11:16 pm

    I actually do that on a regular basis…and I don’t swim…! Uh-oh. I am going to have permanent nose damage or re-shaping! Eek!

  • Corrie Anne July 8, 2011, 11:19 pm

    YES!!!! That is AWESOME!

  • Holly @ The Runny Egg July 8, 2011, 11:32 pm

    These are hilarious!!! I can’t do it — and I’ve tried quite a few times today!

    I’ll keep my eyes open for some human nose clips at my tri this weekend. I definitely can’t do it! Yes, I tried!

  • Lindsay Loves Veggies July 9, 2011, 12:45 am

    HAHA Awesome!!!! I was definitely one of the people doing that in front of my computer earlier. 🙂

  • Jen July 9, 2011, 12:48 am

    Haha! I should have taken a picture of myself trying to do it earlier. After reading your last post, I sat at my desk with a fishy face on, wondering if I was doing it or not. I can get my upper lip to touch my nose, but I don’t think it would suffice as a nose clip under water. Definitely going to test this out the next time I’m in a pool.

  • Carolyn July 9, 2011, 1:03 am

    Oh my gosh I just LOL-ed at the computer. Annnnnd cue me being awkwardly paranoid about my apparently oversized upper lip. Hahaha.

  • Haleigh July 9, 2011, 3:09 am

    Love this post! My husband just walked in on me trying it out for myself…. haha.

  • Yolie @ Practising Wellness July 9, 2011, 5:24 am

    Lol! That is so funny! 😀 My boyfriend was like WHAT on EARTH are you looking at?! 😛 Nice post, Caitlin, and everyone else who contributed their photos…thanks for the giggle, guys!!! 😉 xyx

  • Mary July 9, 2011, 5:53 am

    LOL this is HYSTERICAL!

  • Amanda July 9, 2011, 5:59 am

    Thats awesome!!!! Plug your own nose…. you learn something new everyday.

  • Lauri ( July 9, 2011, 7:34 am

    OMG I can totally do it!!! Ha ha! I had no idea!!!! You learn something new everyday… now if only I had access to a swimming pool so I could try it out… Guess the bathtub will have to do 🙂

  • Shannon @ Mon Amour July 9, 2011, 7:41 am

    I was a national level competitive swimmer for 11 years so I know how to do flip turns pretty well.. eventually you won’t even need to “plug” you nose. Your body will just be able to know when to inhale and when not to. With swimming everything comes with time and practice

  • Kristen (inspiredbydooce) July 9, 2011, 8:02 am

    Those are some impressive upper lips…

  • Mel July 9, 2011, 8:35 am

    Oh, dear. It’s like EXTREME duckface.

  • Angela July 9, 2011, 8:36 am

    I must have missed the gene for that one!!

  • Halley (Blunder Construction) July 9, 2011, 8:37 am

    Hahaha this was a good series, Caitlin! So funny/awkward/educational. Your readers are very talented!!

  • Gina @ Running to the Kitchen July 9, 2011, 9:45 am

    After seeing this actually posted, I now can’t believe I actually sent a picture of this to you! haha At least we all look ridiculous 🙂

  • Aine @ Something to Chew Over July 9, 2011, 10:00 am

    Ha! What a talented bunch 🙂

  • Marie July 9, 2011, 10:59 am

    Aaaaaand I’ve never looked sexier!

  • Amber K July 9, 2011, 11:32 am

    LOL 🙂

  • Mary ( What's Cookin' with Mary) July 9, 2011, 12:40 pm

    HAHAHHAHAH! I love it !!!

  • Victoria (District Chocoholic) July 9, 2011, 1:29 pm

    I feel like The Human Nose Clip could be a new blog.

  • Laura @ Cookies vs. Carrots July 9, 2011, 8:02 pm

    This is hilarious! I really do not see how that is supposed to work!

  • Jolene ( July 11, 2011, 3:07 am
