Waiter, there’s a hair in my… Oh, it’s mine!

May 17, 2009

It’s time again for Fashion Mailbag, where we solve readers’ unusual wardrobe dilemmas.

Earl, from Utah, writes, “I have a problem with nose hair. Mine grows very fast, like six inches in an evening, until matted black tufts dangle in my soup. Help!

Well Earl, this new creation here offers an attractive, battery-operated nose hair trimmer that you can use casually while making dinner smalltalk. The suit is nice, too, if you live in 1971.

Sally, from Alabama, has a multi-tasking query: “Bob, I’m a stripper, but I also give college commencement addresses. Is there any way to combine  the gown and garter, so to speak?”

Yes. The outfit below offers classic striptease elements, integrated with a formal graduation gown. Go from graduation to bachelor party in one night!

There’s even a special pocket for your honorary degree, if  you’re not speaking at Arizona State University.

“matted black tufts dangle in my soup”, brilliant yet disgusting. Thanks so much for implanting that image in my feeble mind.

Mr Bob,

And here I thought this was going to be a replay of Jimmy Carters Adventure on the River.

‘There’s a hare in my…’

At least your blog was as unsettlingly funny as the tale of the rabbit and the turdle, anyway!
