Shave off your existing brows and replace with similar slized slugs. Not only will this create interesting impromptu expressions via their slowly moving repositionings but you may tell other officeworkers you are supporting the environment.

Return them to a small nest set up in a dark corner of your house when you are ready for bed or during hot weather.

       I think hairy caterpillars would be better, and they come in a wider range of colours.

       that adds to your mystique. the silver lines that criss cross your forehead are alluring and a novel ice breaker. they can also be easily repositioned or removed quickly with a little salt.

       Great idea. I think it will make me seem more trustworthy to clients.

       If you'll post a photo of you doing this, you may just get my croissant.
DrCurry, Nov 03 2005
  

       Seconded.   

       (Again, another idea brilliant enough to stun me into inability to click either the + or - button, reducing me to a helpless screen starer waiting for some external force to help me choose what to do)

       best idea I've seen here for a while - excellent actually

       /supporting the environment/.   

       I think that this should be part of the offered rationale for all the [benfrost] ideas.   

       Leeches might stick better.

       Excuse me, but your eyebrows are eating my salad.

       Actually, given that cockroaches eat eyebrows,* they might be the best solution to your sartorial efforts.   

       * commonly reported by sailors from the age of sail and South Americans, but not confirmed by any naturalists, so if you can confirm it experimentally, fame and fortune could be yours.

       Agh this reminds me of a joke about this ugly guy in a bar who sat there licking his eyebrows!

       Brilliance.   

       I knew from the title what the idea would be... and I just *knew* it would be the work of benfrost, esquire.

       The hairy caterpillar mention (Hi, Ling) reminded me of the time a boy tried to imitate my moustache by applying a caterpillar to his upper lip. His lip turned red and started to swell. The poor kid was trying to deny and explain and cry all at once, through a very painful mouth. He kept pointing at me, and it somehow all ended up being my fault. So I'm not going to wear slugbrows around children. +

       Too similar to Balrick having a Slug-Moustache in a BlackAdder episode for my liking.

       There was some guy on late night tv in the 90s who did interviews and they would always fill the whole screen with his whole face and his eyebrows would look like two male catepillars doing the mating dance or whatever it is called when two males do it, jousting dance, or whatever. The point was that the eyebrows would just be a little bit off from eachother and their wave like motion of following eachother made it look like the two halves of his face were jousting jestatorially with eachother when he would laugh. The camera would take a really long shot of the whole screen filled up with this guy's face as he was listening to someone and his face wouldn't move until the person said something funny and then the jousting catapillars thing would go off. it was really funny. But the funniest thing about it was that is was too real to be just "funny" - - that it said something about what humor is -- a mating joust between the two halves of the brain -- that the mating dance that birds do -- the first time that an animal had communicated symboloically like that, is like their contibution to evolution, and ours is the mating dance that goes on between the two halves of the brain and you can see that in people's eyebrows.
