Super Silly Search Sunday 6/17/2007

I know I've taken an extended break from Super Silly Search Sunday, but I just didn't like the search results I was getting. Plus, lets just face it. I've grown lazy. Fat and lazy I might add. I'm weaning JR. Peanut but still eating the same amount...so I've gained some extra poundage. I may have to join Weight Watchers or what I really need to do is find some self control when it comes to the richer foods in life something.

I don't think I mentioned this, but I found out that some of my ball sack searches came from Belgium. Perhaps there is some crazy ball sack stretching tendencies going on over there. Why would you want to stretch them? That's what I want to know.

At any rate, I guess I should tell you what I searched for this Sunday....drum roll here

My Armpit Hair Smells Good

There were only 230,000 search results. One of them was one woman's quest to become "one of those hairless freaks that you see on the MTV". In her June 2nd post, she describes how she tried to wax her armpit hairs off. Painful huh? (I occassionally pluck my own armpit hairs because they grow back so quickly when I shave them-- I got used to the pain).

Another search result was some guy's epiphany about the difference between men's and women's deodorant after using his wife's Degree deodorant. I always thought degree was actually a unisex deodorant. At least, when it first came out, it was. The writer didn't like the smell of it (I don't either) and he decided that women's deodorant doesn't take into account armpit hair. I wonder if that really is true.

Some other noteworthy sites:

  • gurl.com asks people to vote on armpit hair...do they dig it or diss it? The fact that 87 people actually dug it baffles me. But then again, maybe I've just been brainwashed by society.
  • I also found this marijuana site that explains how to avoid getting tested positive for marijuana in your hair. He talks about how he buys an extension kit that uses real hair and then he glues it to his armpit for drug testing purposes. Geez. The lengths that people will go to right?
  • Here's a picture of Tyra Bank's armpit. I don't really see anything except skin irritation.
  • Here's a picture of Julia Roberts'armpit hair...I can't figure out if this is for real or doctored.

Well folks, that's it. A lot of the results that came up were teens/pre-teens asking about armpit hair and what to do about it. I barely remember being that clueless. I'm so glad I'm not a teenager anymore. I certainly don't miss the awkwardness and the huge zits that I got on my nose (right before picture day right?). However, I do miss being twenty something.

By the way, did I ever mention that the Princess gets a kick out of smelling our (The Breadwinner's and my) "stinky armpits". She always asks if she could smell them...then she giggles hysterically.

That was a good search. I've heard of people plucking them. I can tolerate a lot of pain (at least for the sake of beauty), but I can't see my own armpits very well. It strains my eyes.

It definitely did suck going through all that stuff, didn't it? I remember telling my grandma that I needed deoderant for gym class and she told me "No you don't, you're too young." That was an awful time in class for a while.

However, I use that Degree Women Blah Blah Blah (I have to go by what it looks like) - it has the 'little black dress approved" sticker. While I think that part is a lie (I haven't found one yet that doesn't leave a mark when you get it on your shirt), it works pretty well otherwise and it smelled okay the first time I picked it out, but that's the only time I've ever smelled it, I'm sure!

I'll warn The Man against going to Belgium.

We have a mutual friend who waxed her armpits. She said it was painful but worth it.

Hair anywhere other than the top of your head is such a pain.

Uggh..armpit hair. Yeah definitely not loving it.
Never thought of waxing it...and plucking...naw.
Oww! I'm such a wimp when it comes to pain.

its me again.
i just told my husband about your kids sniffing habits and he said that there is actually a career in the future for that.
deodorant companies actually hire people to sniff people's armpits and rate the odor!

Oh, Cherann, you've outdone yourself with this one. Hahaha. I love to see inside your sick and twisted mind as you come up with silly searches.
