Now they want to take away a student's fundamental human right to have specially groomed eyebrows,  which would be a good name for a rock band.

Dave, is this a new posting speed record? You must be using an automated posting system. I can't drink my coffee, pretend to be working, and keep up with all your posts at one time. (I may need stronger coffee)

*gets the hot wax ready*

I can help. Just RRRRRRRRRRRIP it all off.

This government official will not stand for it!

Am I supposed to be intimidated by gangs of Eyebrow-less Oregonian College Students? (Would that be AGNFARB?)

In a related note, I've heard that if you're drinking with Australians and have the bad fortune to fall asleep in their presence, their traditional response is to shave one of your eyebrows off.

Some participants have managed to make it through the entire decade of their 20's more or less continuously single-browed (not to be confused with mono-browed).

Thank the heavens that this could never happen in Oregon.

I wouldn't walk across the street to see Specially Groomed Eyebrows for free. They were one of those 80's bands with too much synthesizer and eyeshadow.

i, on the other hand, have this one hair in my right eyebrow that grows like way faster than any other hair on my body, so that i will look in the mirror one day and notice this thing sticking out of my forehead like an antennae, and i lop it off, but two weeks later it's back, fully an inch long. i have tried yanking it out, too. i also say "consarn it".

What a bunch of dumb plucks.

Snork @ Mud. At least it isn't growing out of your ear or nose.... YET. ;)

mud - can you maybe wrap it around your head in a combover? Just to make a statement?

mud, I volunteer to wax that for you.

Two words, mud: corn rows.

If I remember correctly, mud is follically slick. Maybe he could take that one hair and use it to create a maze on his head. Or if he did corn rows, he could make it a maize.

nah, i actually have a full head of hair. i like to shave myself bald but the missus didn't care for that style, so you know how that went.

i actually took a pair of scissors to the men's room a while ago and clipped the mutant hair off again - it was about an inch long.

"The Mutant Hair" - by Stephen King
Man wakes up to find mutant eyebrow hair has grown overnight and entered his left nostril, eventually invading his brain. Hilarity does not ensue.

This will account for all of the man's harebrained ideas...


I had a similar experience after my manscaping.

Helpful tip: Don't wear hotpants to the workplace.

rimsnot for Siouxie (since it was nose related)

*hands Annie a hanky*

Thanks. Could I have an un-used one now?

Me thinks thou doth protest too much!

Like, fer sure!

I thought it was gone when I cut it off and dropped it in the wastebasket.

This morning it was lying on the pillow, right by my head. It was the first thing I saw when I opened my eyes.

It's like a nightmare. I always thought "a wild hair" was just an expression, or else it was something that happened to other people; how did this happen to me? Two days ago I was just like everyone else, except for that nagging itch; today I'm haunted by a nameless dread.

It all began when I saw that ad for Pennywise Hair Cream. How bad could that be, I figured as I bought a tube. I only used it once.
My wife found me sitting on the edge of the bed, crying and staring at my hands, which were inflamed and covered with rank hair. "Don't worry," she said calmingly. "We can get it removed as soon as the swelling goes down."
"You don't understand," I sobbed. "I put most of it on that wild hair on my @$$." She ran away screaming.

Two words: Eyebrow pencil. It's so cute how boys don't know they're for filling in bald patches!

Of course, it never occurred to me that I could pass off any scary bald patches I give myself while tweezing as a trend, either...

NOS! Nos! Nos! Nos!
