Why did Charly and Marc take a shower together?
They're both H/A/M, and it's FSEI.

Did they deliberately shower together? Was it an accident? Did they, for some reason, need a shower really, really bad and that one was the only one available? Did the shower take place in an actual shower (as opposed to them being hosed or being "hit" by a sprinkler)? Was the shower broken? Was something else broken?

Is the relationship between Marc and Charly relevant? Are they friends? Co-workers? Total strangers? ...Siamese twins?

Sound: The sound of the water coming down? The sound of either of them speaking/singing? Marc's reaction to having to shower with Charly?

Is it some sort of a reality show? Does Marc get money (or some other reward) for taking the shower with Charly? Is it a test on how much Marc would do in order to get that reward? Were Marc and Charly tied to each other in some way?

Did they both took the shower voluntarily? Is Charly famous? Is Marc famous?
Did they take photos in the shower?
Did they take any equipment to the shower?

Wild guess: Is Marc a want-to-be an audio-engineer and Charly tests his abilities to manage with different sounds?

********SPOILER********
This puzzle is based on a "Cyanide & Happiness" comic strip: http://explosm.net/comics/2261/
