We've all had a "shower thought" or two. They're the fleeting thoughts you have while doing something mundane, like taking a shower or mowing the lawn. They're the miniature epiphanies that occur when your brain is occupied with doing something else, but suddenly you realize that you've come up with a totally unique way of thinking.

On Reddit, users share their shower thoughts on a subreddit called, appropriately, r/ShowerThoughts. The subreddit defines the concept like so: "A loose term that applies to the types of thoughts you might have while carrying out a routine task like showering, driving, or daydreaming. At their best, Showerthoughts are universally relatable and find the amusing/interesting within the mundane."

Below is a sampling of some of the funniest Shower Thoughts ever shared online. These little strokes of genius reveal that sometimes, the most interesting truths emerge from the most random thoughts.
