There's this weird sense of solidarity in stories of extreme public embarrassment. We've all done something—or had something done to us—that is mortifying in the moment, and no less so when we relive it in our brains every night for the rest of our lives. But then again, it's also hilarious to hear stories about other people embarrassing themselves. Why? Because it's not us. In other words? Boners. Yep, this is a bunch of dudes who got on Reddit to bravely share their humiliating stories of how something suddenly came up. (Their boners is what.)
1. Meccarabbit just wanted to ball.
Had one on a packed train wearing basketball shorts once. I was scared I was going to poke the girl standing directly in front of me and she'd call me out publicly and I'd look like a perv.
