Armpit hair

I won't forget this anytime soon. Nor will my eight year old after I told her about it today after my wife tried to stop me.

Hey, she gets a kick out of stuff like this.

Thoughts? (Not on my parenting.)

That takes me back to Germany. I remember going to the public pools, seeing some beautiful girl in a bikini, then she'd wave and I'd remember that few German women shave...

I hear you on the cultural norm violations, Marcus. They're surprising and I'm not sure how to get around that.

Caricature aside, I wonder if this ad would work in Germany.

I saw this the other night. While I was eating. Not a good combination.

I did find the commercial very funny but I can't remember what they were advertising... one of those cases where the comedy and imagery overshadowed the purpose of the commercial, I guess. Happy Monday!

Sorry to hear that, Billy. :)

Andrea, I also forgot - or just didn't notice - the product. But maybe I went back to it because the imagery/comedy was so effective.

Thanks for stopping by.

Yes, but writing poetry requires time and inspiration =) I feel like it's all I can do to squeeze out fifteen minutes of blog writing twice a week...

I do have a few poems stashed away, though, that I can use as a buffer in the meantime.

Thanks so much for your kind words!

I love the capitalization on awkward. I'd imagine there's a skill to growing your armpit hair that long...

I had a female friend who does the armpit hair thing. It honestly looks really good on her...

Fairer girls, not so much...
