Bread Beard

Remove facial hair with dough

When I baked bread in the past, I found that dough adhering to my forearms would yank out the hairs when I peeled it off. If a person with unwanted facial hair were to apply dough to their beard area, halfbake it with just tolerable heat and then take that off, they would probably have moved a substantial portion of the hair. They could then complete the baking process and have a small flat loaf or pizza base to eat full of extra roughage in the form of hair, which would eventually become a surgically removable gastric hairball, which someone could surely make up a story about it being medically beneficial and sell, either to desperately I'll people or maybe an art gallery.

What I thought the above link's description was referring to, at first, which confused me. [notexactly, Feb 20 2016]

       What this idea shows is the extreme inadvisability of home-baking bread using mouldy rye flour.

       Shepherd's purse contains a similar symbiotic fungus to ergot, so that saves time. It's not hallucinogenic though, so you get the black without the fire.

       This may be a crumby idea.
