One mom mistook her daughter’s melted cup for something much more NSFW, and hilarity ensued

It’s inevitable that, at some point, you will have to broach an awkward sexual conversation topic with your parents. It’s one of those cringe-y yet inescapable facts of life.

That said, it’s usually best to make every possible attempt to avoid these conversations by effectively hiding your sex toys, not having intercourse in places where you might get caught — oh, and apparently, not putting any plasticware in the dishwasher.

One recent dishwashing attempt gone wrong, shared by Reddit user fictionbastard, is causing the internet to weep with laughter.

Apparently, one poor girl put a plastic travel cup in the dishwasher, which subsequently morphed into a rather phallic shape — much to the horror of her mother, who promptly accused her of washing something more risqué.

And by “risqué,” I mean “a dildo.”

Naturally, the rest of the Reddit community is trying to turn lemons into lemonade.

“A ‘dildup’: a dildo that can be used as a cup,” one Redditor commented.

“It’s a workout regime. You work yourself, and then you drink,” another added.

Hey, you have to hand it to the internet: when it comes to finding creative, multipurpose uses for household objects, they will always find a way.

And, here’s hoping that this anonymous girl learned a valuable lesson about what not to put in the dishwasher.
