Considering how many worthwhile subjects are in my backlog, it seems particularly airheaded to put up this post. However, it’s not every day that when I check my email before going to bed, I find an unmistakable theme to the links I’ve been sent. Without any further commentary or explanation, here we go, in the order of appearance in my inbox.

Number 1: Chest Hair Toupee

Made of “100% human hair” that has been “hand-tied on lace foundation”. They can only be attached using adhesive, which is the product recommended to all those who are contemplating buying a chest hair toupee. (About ‘It Stays Adhesive‘: “Use with socks, shoulder straps, wigs, toupees, theatrical makeup and devices, orthopedic and surgical devices, and more.” FYI.) Chest hair toupees are available in a variety of colours, including black and dark grey. The red and one of the blonde options have been discontinued. It’s worth pointing out, these are not novelty items (those chest wigs may be found here).

Number 2: Bacon Condoms

“Made in America of the highest quality latex. Every Bacon Condom has been rigorously tested to help ensure reliability and the utmost safety for when you’re makin’ Bacon. As an added bonus, J&D’s baconlube™ ultra premium water based meat flavored personal lubricant has been generously applied inside and out for an even more hot pork experience.” If the photos are to be believed, they’re rather serious about this baconic illusion and if they’re for real, then they’re already out of stock.

Number 3: Nair for Men

This one’s a suggested ad campaign, created by a few Canadian college students. Does it make sense? Not really. Is it advisable? I haven’t the faintest. But the campaign certainly is memorable.

Suddenly Rogaine seems so very banal….
