The Pee Swirl

My 3 year old son just started potty training at his daycare and I must say I am very impressed by his progress. They teach the kids to stand on a stool, hold the top of the toilet seat, lean forward slightly and pee away. Breathtaking to say the least but what they did not teach him was the swiveling of the hips in a side to side motion creating the pee swirl. If you’ve ever watched Jim Carrey in Dumb and Dumber, in the scene where he is confronted by Seabass, then you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. Now, is this just a guy thing or is there an inherent genealogy behind this? Unfortunately I’m unable to recollect such experiences from my own childhood, but I would not be surprised if such a trait was passed on by the old man. As he approaches his formative preschool years, it remains to be seen whether he develop another gem. The cupping of the hand underneath the pitts creating the underarm fart seems to come to mind.
