The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

We've got a fuzz issue and we're gonna use it

Schick Quattro adThis is the third of four frames in an animated GIF advertising Schick's Quattro for Women razor, which I spotted today while browsing Popgadget. (That "Energizer" tag might seem odd until you remember that the battery maker acquired Schick and Wilkinson Sword in 2003.) I had to ask myself, "Self, are you that easily distracted by a nice pair of gams?" (Yes.) I suppose it's a good thing they're not taking things too seriously. To make sure they weren't, I wandered over to their Web site and found something called Quattro Lingo, which introduces some new terms into the vernacular. I was most amused by this description: when you "intentionally go without shaving before a date as a way of making yourself behave," you're said to be wearing a "chastity pelt." I have no idea what Dawn Eden thinks of this notion, though I'm sure she'd endorse behaving oneself.

I still watch those skirts

So that's you settled in Oklahoma!

It reminds me of something I read in (IIRC) Bennett Cerf's Shake Well Before Using, attributed to Henry Morgan. Apparently Morgan liked to do "weather reports" on his show, such as,

"Tomorrow, will be muggy -- followed by tuegy, weggy and thurgy."

...and (getting back to the topic)...

"Later in the week we'll have high winds, followed by high skirts, followed by me."

Chastity pelt? Anything like a Merkin?

I believe the proper answer to this is "Yes, and no."
