They repulse me. Saw one at the pool the other day while swimming with my kids. Gnarly through the crack ball sack, oozey, icky. Even my kids noticed. BTW- leopard spotted. The pool is mostly for kids at a community center. It's so wrong.
Glad it's not just me. I did feel it was an emergency. Considered immediately extracting my kids when Sir Ding Dong waded in, flauting his "leopard skin" junk. Was so worried it might ooze onto them. Thank God for chlorine.
