I saw 9 Pound Hairball open for Weezer. It was tough for me to cough up the ticket cost.

And that's how I went bald.

" Hukka hukka hukka bleh ! " gets the job done cheaper.

I actually saw one of these at the Army Medical Museum at Walter Reed Hospital. It had been removed from a 12-year old girl who ate her own hair for six years. It was in the shape of a stomach. I don't know how much it weighed.

Was it a coincidence, or fate that her parents often
called her "Kitty"?

Oh how gross. I nine lb. hairball. She ate her hair. Really, don't people know better.
