Hey! You know these things? Loofahs?
Did you think they came from the ocean? Because ME TOO.
It's not (y)our fault!!! Every time you see a loofah, it's surrounded by OCEAN PARAPHERNALIA.
IT'S A CONSISTENT MOTIF.
I know what you're thinking. That is NOT the ocean. I KNOW. But it's true! They come from gourds!
Sponge gourds and luffa gourds, to be specific! And probably other gourds that I'm gonna hear about in the comment section.
