From "sponge bath" females in the Caribbean are expected to clean their privates before going to bed. Regardless of the circumstances--even when there is a hurricane, or some other natural disaster. It is expected that, although she does not have indoor plumbing, she must make provision for that obligatory "sponge"--such as collecting rain water.

Girls are trained very early on how to sponge. The focus is speed and efficiency. As a rite of passage are given their very own decorative plastic basins and are shown how to "sponge".

Somebody who frequently benefits from the generosity of others, but never returns the favor.
"Jerry's been living with me for a week, sleeping on my couch, watching my DVDs, eating my food, borrowing my car, and using my internet all day long instead of looking for a job. And so far he hasn't even offered to pay for gas or cook a meal or anything. What a sponge."

A band that followed in the wake of the Grunge era. Sponge is a band out of Detroit that is still around today but is hardly noticed, with band members switching all the time, the only permanent member seems to be the frontman Vinnie Dombroski. They generated some buzz with their 1993 hits "Plowed" and "Molly (Sixteen Candles)" but soon went back underground for the most part.

With that aside, they probably deserve more attention than they are getting, because they've made some amazing tunes. Overall, a band I'm glad I discovered.
Sponge is an awesome band.
