Trim Shady


Snapped this picture yesterday at the drug store up the street from my apartment.

It's a good thing I'm no longer single, because writing about the mere existence of a product like this is going to get me into a lot less trouble than writing about stumbling across a girl who actually uses it.

The color that disturbs me the most is the hot pink...

For the woman with WAY too much time on her hands

VOTAR said...

Barbaric.


Don't these cavewomen know it's 2008?


The only acceptable Betty color is Minwax.

BV said...

Um...wait...women still have hair down there? I thought bald was the new pube.

Deacon Blue said...

Is there anyplace we should LESS wish to put chemicals...aside from maybe our eyes?

And once he's gone that far southward, does the average male really give a shit what color he's looking at?

2. Merkin

A pubic hair piece. A toupee for the pubic area/genitals. In the 1700’s when mercury was used to treat sexually transmitted diseases (Gonorrhea or Syphilis) one of the side effects was the loss of pubic hair. To disguise this condition, that was not cured by mercury, a Merkin was employed.
17th Century setting: Due to his treatment of the "French Pox" (syphilis) with mercury a merkin Gwendolyn used a Merkin to used to hide the side effects of hair loss and not alarm her husband.

I will bet good money that an episode of Sex in the City inspired this product.

Babypants said...

Seriously? My hair dye burns my *scalp.*

No. Just no.

kanye said...

What...no Ram Jam video?

Mr. Controversy said...

Deacon - Nope, because once you're down there, it's all gold. ;) Too much?

MataHari said...

"And for the low cost of $19.99, you too can have scarred genitals from a fast and easy chemical burn! Just for fun!"

Erica Dee said...

Um, 20 dollars?
I'll use Manic Panic thank you.

LaRoach said...

I think I've learned more from this one post than I ever learned in high school health class.

Terry Heaton said...

Gives a new meaning to the term "quick as a wink, you're in the pink."

Iris said...

A batch to match the snatch, eh? Um, no thanks. Me and my prematurely grey hoo-ha will just have to suffer the pain and indignity of a a plain ol' undyed beav.

Amii said...

Oh c'mon Chez, you know you've just bumped their sales up...at least for the Burn.

I'm no hairy bushed nun, but no baldy either. I may check this out and sport a color or two on the playa. You can't tell me you won't be looking to see if you've had an effect out there.

And since we're talking hirsute, I would like to lament the passing of the man-bush. I'm telling you, shaving does not add inches to your penis. Bring back the hair!!!!

Fifth Generation Leftist said...

I got one of these almost a year ago. My friend is editor of Playgirl and the company awas giving them away at a party for the newest issue. No one wanted it. I threw mine away. Who wants a flaming bush?

Deacon Blue said...

Mr. Controversy?

Merely gold?

Ohhhh, platinum at least...

...with diamonds

Iris said...

amii--

I didn't think about the Burner factor. Good call. Racing stripes? Check. Swirls? (s)Natch! Too much time/money on yer hands? Fo sho.

Yes, discoloration always get my notice but thats the skin mostly. Unless the hair has mange or something living in it... I jus keep on going

Average American Male

winged unicorn said...

you can use any hair dye on your pubes.

or not.

OOPS! i was trimming and the razor slipped.

oh well. good thing i live in florida where i don't have to worry about it getting cold.

Deacon Blue said...

Now, now, Winged Unicorn...that kind of talk is only going to get Votar all hot and bothered.

BTW, has he wrangled a date of you yet?

tania said...

I agree, bleach downstairs sounds like a bad idea! Better to stay an airplane blonde, or wax it off so nobody knows the drapes don't match the carpet....

Alex said...

That photograph is both hysterical and genius - not to mention the product and packaging. I'm just jealous I didn't find it first. Good eyes, Chez, and as always, a great sense of humor. And yes Stephen, who doesn't love a good excuse to bring up merkins! Ah yes, we are a classy bunch, aren't we? ...Bravo!

the doctor said...

it used to be that if there was grass on he field you can play...perhaps now I will say if it isn't platinum or hot pink then I can't play

How about the statement that it shows below the boxes "..cover grey." Fortunately, I have never dealt with the salt and pepper variety yet.

winged unicorn said...

why deacon, thank you for asking, but no.

votar is choosing to stay in his little cubby and not verify for himself whether i am a REAL redhead or if i have um, um, removed all evidence thereof which would allow him to draw a concluson as to the state of my mane(s).

to paraphrse dickens [david copperfield]:
Votar, winged is willing!

Amy said...

But what about this?
