Demolition Man holds a special place in my heart.
First and foremost, it’s a Stallone movie; which in my book automatically makes it an American film classic.

Make no mistake, Demolition Man is hardly a great movie; but it’s a good time nonetheless.
Anyway, of the many inside jokes that Demolition Man has spawned over the years; I’m pretty sure the one that we all remember best is the 3 seashells.

Just the other day, a friend of mine asked me how I thought the 3 seashells would function in regards to their intended anus cleaning procedure.

Everything I know of toilet seat warfare comes from fighting the fires down below, clean-up is something I leave to the right hand and rolls of the mighty white sheets.
Anyway, my friend later told me that someone took an actual account given by Sylvester Stallone and the writer of Demolition Man regarding the proper procedure of using the 3 seashells, and created a visual diagram to go along with their description.
After a few minutes of internet-ing, I found said diagram at I-Mockery:
See yah’ tomorrow!
