In the dream where you show up to school naked, why do you never go swimming?

Because the school's cement pond was converted for human waste treatment. Swimming was banned 2 years ago, when Saddleback Johnson stripped down to his underwear, jumped into the pool, and came up with a large piece of something that looked like a BabeRuth candybar. Then he chased Tight Lips Cathy around the playground with his new "toy". Swimming has since become taboo.
