Signs that the Economy is Really Bad

I found this humourous entry from Jezebel called,
"Brazilian Waxes: The Trend that Never Really Existed".

It states:

There's a page-view-baiting essay in Salon today about how, because of the recession and widely acknowledged creepiness, women are going retrobush and shunning Brazilian waxes. But!

Unfortunately, there are no pube-based statistics to back up this shocking discovery, so I'm calling bullshit on the entire thing and saying that not that many women were ripping off all their pubes in the first place.

I must agree with Jessica when she says:

Maybe the porn world saw the rise of the retrobush, and desperate trend story writers used that, and one Sex and the City episode, as evidence that more and more women were going bare down there. But of the women I know, a couple have tried Brazilian waxes one time, but the vast majority have close to their original plumage.

Plus, all hair removal is expensive to have professionally done, and maintained...and frankly, I never really understood why looking like a prepubescent girl would be a turn on to begin with.

I wasn't going to post this at all, until I was led to Uncle Steve's New Waxing Options for the Progressive Woman.

That's my comedy contribution for today.
