“Singing in the shower is fun and games until you get shampoo in your mouth. Then it’s soap opera”

"Singing in the shower is fun and games until you get shampoo in your mouth. Then it just becomes a soap opera” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. “What’s another name for singing in the shower?” was posted to the newsgroup alt.humor.puns on May 23, 2003. “Daffynition: Soap opera- Singing in the shower” was printed in Boys’ Life magazine in August 2008.

“Singing in the shower is all fun and games until you get shampoo in your mouth, then it just becomes a soap opera” went viral on Twitter on August 26, 2013.

We are constantly told that wrestling is not a sport.  Even the term “sports entertainment” is trashed.  Semantics.  The key word here is “entertainment”.  Why does everyone get hung up on the “sports” aspect?  Why doesn’t the media trash the daytime soap opera?  The modern soap has little to do with soap, and it’s as much an opera as me singing in the shower.
