waterboarding

Waterboarding sounds like that thing kids do when they’re learning how to swim. You know, when they grab onto the orange floaty boards and kick, which lets them move around the deep end without having to wear those humiliating inflatable water wings.

Actually, waterboarding is suffocating a person over and over again with water and a wet towel, usually because you think they know something you want to know.

Cute name, though, right?
