Menorah Jewfro Pick

Religiously-Inspired Pick for the Chosen 'Fro
  [vote for,

The Jewfro: a voluminous mass of tight curls that adorn the heads of the Hebraic-ally hip.

The menorah: a Jewish candelabra, with either seven or nine branches (the nine-branched variety is used during Chanukah).

As anyone with an ounce of sense should know, a good fro requires painstaking maintenance in the form of picking to remain awesome throughout the day. The Menorah Jewfro Pick takes advantage of the menorah's unique shape to deliver a religiously/culturally/ethnically specific picking experience for Jewfro practioners. Made of the same material as regular plastic combs (or perhaps shiny metals for use/wearing during the high holidays), the Menorah Jewfro Pick would be shaped like a menorah adorned with lit candles. The pointed nature of the "flames" atop the candle-shaped tines would facilitate the pick's penetration through the chaotic nebula of Jew hair.

Note: chill out, I'm jewish

       hah, excellent.
rcarty, this could work for all 'froficionados (is that a word? it is now.) A kwanzaa 'kinaracomb' perhaps? Christian 'fros with cruciform hairpins? And Dawkins' 'brights' symbol is just made for big hair...

       Some people might not identify it as a jewish icon. How about a star of david at the end of the handle? Black Power has it's rendition.

       I was thinking the same thing; in fact, I drew up a schematic with that in mind. Can anyone tell a newbie how to add an image to your idea?

       Now I can both celebrate my heritage and properly groom my fro. +

       It was just Tishabove, Hannukka is off 4 and a half months from now...   

       Wait Tishabove is also about the menorah.

       I've got an urge to develop a Menorah with a scientific theme (perhaps a double-helical twist to the stems), which could be used in laboratories to give thanks for scientific successes over the last twelve months.   

       It would be called the Lab-Year Menorah.
