No gel involved, we hope

Florida Man has become such a compelling (or repelling) stereotype that seemingly no one gives any though to whether Florida Woman might be a hair more evolved.

The answer, it appears, is No:

Forget sharks — some Florida swimmers recently had a close shave with a close shave.

We are pleased to report none was injured, though tens of thousands of people have been left grossed out and probably scared to return to the water, all because of a video that showed a woman shaving her legs at a public pool.

Wait, what?

It all started when the unidentified woman plopped down on the edge of a busy pool. Her feet rested on the steps leading into the water.

As kids frolicked nearby in their inner tubes, the woman pulled out a razor and started shaving her legs.

Fortunately (or maybe not), this is 2018 so everything is caught on video, which was posted on Reddit.

In r/trashy, as if you couldn’t have guessed.

It could, however, be worse. Here are the Top Ten Places Worse Than a Florida Swimming Pool to Shave Your Legs:

  1. The Louvre
  2. Self-checkout at Walmart
  3. Toby’s Gun Range for the Visually Impaired
  4. Back seat of a Camaro
  5. Front seat of a Camaro
  6. Within 100 meters of Freddy’s Frozen Custard
  7. A sorority house at Trump University
  8. In front of a guy who claims to be a “YouTube Talent Scout”
  9. The last remaining Fotomat
  10. Air Force Two, unless you’re Mrs. Mike Pence

    That “top 10” list sux. A sorority house is not “out in public”, and either front or back seat of a Chevy is barely so. But the writer really tipped his hand with no. 5, “Within 100 meters of Freddy’s Frozen Custard”

    “meters”? Analysis: Euroweenie-hood CONFIRMED.

    The razor aisle at Walmart, try before you buy, baby, or not.

    From that list that Chaz dug up from somewhere, #10, “The Louvre”, was actually funny. If the whole list had been like that, I would have LOLed. Too bad that the rest of the list was not as good.

    jallison: Good one. Funnier than at least 9 of the 10 items in the original post.
