Follicular Museum

museum devoted to hairy matters

The idea is simple: establish a museum devoted the subject of all things to do with hair and beards. This would naturally include mustaches, under arm hair (referred to where I live as oxter hair) and of course pubic hair.

Hair is a facinating subject. Nothing can creep people out more than, for example a single strand of hair detected in a sandwich.

There is almost infinite variety to human hair types colour and styles. Just think of the extremes between rasta dreadlocks and a shaved head. In between there are: corn rows; Mohicans; short back and sides; plaits of every description and attachments of numerous varieties. Then there are the ethnic styles to add to all that.

Of course no museum would be complete without its souvenir section where miniature wigs, mustaches, etc are all available for the compulsive collector. Perhaps such a museum already exists? Could not find though, and if you build it, I will come frequently.

       //Nothing can creep people out more than, for example a single strand of hair detected in a sandwich.// I'm not sure about that. For instance, what about a toenail clipping, or north-east Asia, or a small subjunctive?

       I can still see you giggling so I won't m-f-d it, but better quality hairpieces are made out of real hair (go figure), and surely there's a wig museum out in the world somewhere.   

       What was the problem with the iPad anyways ?

       As part of the "etc" in the main text, "merkins".

       This would be a great exhibit in a natural history museum. Maybe some material on the races of lice as well.

       Hair is not always your friend, I was briefly detained at Customs in Bangkok, suspected to be part of some obscure international animal-hair smuggling ring after cat-sitting (blurgh) for ten day for a friend and then visiting another friend with mad dog.   

       Upon production of my HB explanatory card I was released.   

       Possibly I'm also on to win the least imagination prize as well, sitting by the swimming pool mit palm trees and all I'm doing is typing HB annos on a laptop <sighs>

       Don't feel to bad, [nmrm]. I'm supposed to be working right now, which means that I'm sitting indoors on a beautiful summer day typing various bullshit of little to no value, when I _should_ be sitting indoors on a beautiful summer day typing various bullshit for which somebody may pay me decent money someday.
