Did you just cut off my ear?

May 7, 2008


We have video of a hair stylist trying for a world record by using 10 scissors to cut a woman’s hair. How did that conversation go?

“Morning, Miss Todd. Mind if I use 10 sharp scissors to slash into your hair like an industrial shredder?”

“That’s fine, Andre. Keep those blades going as fast as you can. Don’t worry about scratching up my face, that’s what stitches are for.”

I like to think she went from there to her dentist: “Miss Todd, I’m trying to set a world record for getting the most Novocaine into a jaw in one minute. Yeah, the secret is, I use an amnio needle! Will that be a problem for you?

Sounds like shear terror.

I know, I know, but someone had to write it.
