  • Nai'r do wells.

  • Missed me! Nair-ny, nair-ny, NAIR-ny!

  • Not having lived in Rochester, I can say that I find the history of Eastman Kodak quite fascinating. I might feel differently if I'd lived (or even visited) there though.

  • I like the Halloween story. Besides, this word nair does seem very playgroundish.
    Gotcha! Nair nair nair nair nair nair!

    July 30, 2008

  • I took a semester of school at R.I.T... Kodak owns that town.

    July 30, 2008

  • John -- greetings from a fellow Rochesterian! You and I sure picked a fine place to grow up, didn't we?

    Oh, and, uh, something about Nair.

  • There are at least three conversations going on today which are simply so baffling to me that I can think of nothing to contribute. Do you all know something that I don't? Like an imminent attack of hairy, fanged celery plants. Or worse.

  • *looks away*

    July 30, 2008

  • What?? It turns you into....

    *sudden realization*

    July 30, 2008

  • Well, if the neighborhood kids thus attacked then stood still in their shower stalls for 25 minutes... ;)

    This sounds like the middle-school/junior-high trick of slipping a boy Midol to make him turn into a girl.

  • When I was a kid in Rochester, NY, on Halloween the older kids would run around with this stuff, hunting younger kids.

    At least that was the word on the playground. Might have been a (sub)urban legend, as I never actually saw anyone rendered bald.

  • No bilby, you misunderstand. You slather it on your chin-whiskers, but then you have to stand in your shower stall naked with your legs apart for 25 minutes, to get it to work.

    *snort*

  • chained_bear has chins in interesting places!

    (good grief, it's strange 'round these parts today. (and i'm not helping. (and i didn't mean to say "parts.")))

  • Yarb: So was I.

    (j/k) ;)

    July 30, 2008

  • Crikey, sorry. I was thinking of chin-whiskers.

    July 30, 2008

  • or any nice, optionally wet things that don't dissolve itty-bitty parts of you?

    July 30, 2008

  • Nothing, unless you have to do it every two days.

    On the other hand, if you buy this product, brave its noxious stench, and stand in your shower stall with your legs apart for up to 25 minutes... You won't have to shave for about a week.

    July 30, 2008

  • What's wrong with a nice wet shave?

    July 30, 2008

  • This might clear things up a bit.

    So to speak.

    July 30, 2008

  • Cucumber depilatories?

    July 26, 2008

  • I don't understand any of these comments.

  • Raspberry cheesecake from Junior's is teh awesome.

    December 1, 2007

  • Unless it's, you know, raspberries. They are teh yum.

    December 1, 2007

  • Actually, the cucumber variety has a decent smell. Don't ever buy the raspberry one, though. Actually, don't ever buy raspberry anything.

    December 1, 2007

  • And ignore the hideous odor.

    November 30, 2007

  • Not. Gonna. Ask. (But I really want to...)

    November 30, 2007

  • I can attest that it actually does work, you just have to ignore the instructions on the packaging.
