Here's Why You Shouldn't Spoon Your Partner When Wearing Fake Tan

One bloke has just received a crash course in the dangers of spooning with your significant other after they've recently applied a load of fake tan.

Obviously, we all love a good spoon, don't we? However, there are situations in which the comfiest way to sit in bed and watch a TV show isn't necessarily the best for you.

Twenty-three-year-old builder Sam Phillips recently discovered this after he fell asleep next to his girlfriend Jade and awoke to discover a gigantic brown mark on his legs.

Now, Sam didn't immediately realise what had gone on. After all, he (presumably) doesn't use fake tan and wouldn't jump to that conclusion straight away. The naïve young lad just assumed that he had somehow managed to bruise his leg whilst taking his nap.

It wasn't that.

He'd actually managed to get a huge fake tan stain all along his legs. Or, more accurately, Jade had managed to get her fake tan all over his legs. Oh dear, oh dear.

Because this is 2019, the first thing that anyone does when something strange and unusual happens is post it onto social media.

In keeping with this, Sam shared a shot of his brown legs and wrote: "Woke up thinking I had a big bruise on my leg, turns out you can't spoon your mrs after she's faked tanned."

Fair enough.

Only, it turned out that this sort of thing isn't actually that unusual. Within a very short amount of time Sam's original post was inundated with responses from people who have experienced something similar.

Who knew that this was such a big deal?

So, if this situation befalls you, how do you sort it out? After all, no-one wants to walk around all day with a huge brown stain on them. People will start to get the wrong idea.

Don't panic. You can sort yourself out by rubbing some anti-dandruff shampoo, shaving foam, toothpaste or lemon juice on yourself.

Oh, and Strongbow Dark Fruits will also shift that pesky stain a treat.

Alright, that last one was made up, but here's hoping someone actually tried that before reading on.

If you've got none of the above (again, the Dark Fruits isn't going to help you) you can just exfoliate. Grab a flannel and some oil and get scrubbing.

In no time at all, you'll be returned to your ordinary pasty self. No harm, no foul.
