Fuzzbox, and we're gonna use it

Missouri Governor Matt Blunt has signed Senate Bill 280, which shuffles the Show-Me State's rules for cosmetologists and mandates that parental consent be obtained before minors can get a bikini wax.

This latter provision puzzles me to some extent — why make it difficult for an underage girl to look like, well, an underage girl? — but I admit, I had no idea there was so much demand that the government would feel compelled to interdict the supply.

Not to worry. As Aldahlia says, "Just get a Bic. Duh."

(This is kind of scary: two posts on this topic in less than 72 hours. Where is my mind?)

Expect to get some very interesting search terms in days to come ....

What I want to know is, how do these legislators KNOW there's a need to restrict underage bikini waxes?

Could be worse. Imagine the reaction they'd get if they tried to restrict underage abortions.

That picture on the link is just wrong.

The new gateway to evil ... the Bikini wax. Could lead to dancing.

Slightly OT -- I have that record album! (On vinyl.)
