So I do that,” he told Vanity Fair at the time. At the recent printing conference, he made sure everyone knew he was kidding. “I answered a question where I was stuff sarcastic and ironic, and it’s followed me around,” he said, via Buzzfeed. “Unfortunately, I showed surpassing I cam here.

The controversy virtually bathing habits seemed to have started with Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis sharing how much they wash their kids in an visitation on Dax Shepard and Monica Padman’s Armchair Expert podcast, where the couple revealed that they have a standard where they wait until they waterlog their kids. “Now, here’s the thing: If you can see the dirt on them, wipe them. Otherwise, there’s no point,” Ashton said. Dax and his wife Kristen Bell defended Ashton and Mila, saying that they occasionally forget if they’d put their kids to bed without a bath. “I’m a big fan of waiting for the stink. Once we reservation a whiff, that’s biology’s way of letting you know you need to wipe it up. There’s a red flag. Honestly, it’s just bacteria. Once you get the bacteria, you gotta be like, ‘Get in the tub or the shower.’ So I don’t hate what they’re doing,” Kristen said. Even though the bathing habits seem questionable, given Jake’s response, you have to wonder if maybe this was all some elaborate joke.
