Swimming With Ryan Lochte Is the New Swimming with DolphinsS

Only four days left to hop into the blue and get gnarly with Ryan Lochte. I'm pretty sure that's what he calls doing laps for Hurricane Sandy relief. What a man! The auction is at $9,500 right now so you gotta act fast while it's reasonable and totally worth it.

Listen, I'm serious. One of you has gotta be rich enough to afford this — just think of how awkward and uncomfortable it'll be when you're almost-naked and swimming breast stroke-to-breast stroke with America's #1 sex idiot. So fun! Oooh, or, you could take this amazing opportunity to create the prom you never had! Obviously it'll be "Under the Sea" themed, that part's easy. Other than that, all you'll need to do is show up in a mermaid costume with a wetsuit tuxedo for Lochte. The two of you will stare vacantly into each other's eves while swaying (in the water) to the sweet sounds of the Little Mermaid Soundtrack. When the hour is up, the lights will abruptly turn back on, and when your eyes adjust, you'll realize Lochte is gone — was that real life? Or just a dream? A big dumb delicious dream? No matter.

You're sold, right? Great, make sure to tape it and send it to me (NOT for masturbation purposes). So that you may make the most informed purchase possible, I've pasted the auction rules below. Please note, emphasis mine when shit is extra ridiculous and/or hilarious.
