Alert reader/pop culture blogger Dana forwarded me the following website:
Manic Panic for the pubes, y’all. Mix up a batch for your snatch. The curtains can match the drapes. Give the ol' cat a new coat. There are even fun stencils and a super-special bridal kit. All you’ll need is a set of Shrinky-Dinks and some scrapbooks and you’ve got a fun little rainy day craft party.
Dana’s objection to this product was that women already spend enough time plucking, tweezing, and fussing, we don’t need to agonize over our beaverly beauty as well.
My objection is far simpler: I thought dye-worthy amounts of pubic hair had been outlawed by the February 1999 issue of Cosmopolitan, when full landscaping, landing strips, and other accoutrements of pre-pubescence became the norm.
So why create a product for something that has moved into extinction? Perhaps we should also create grooming kits for our pet Dodos while we’re at it.
