Gag Me With a Spoon

No seriously. It’s not my shtick to share these things, but some things are SO special, they must be shared with my blog “public.”

Hair people frolicking

Calder-like hair portrait

These are "hair drawings" made by someone I assume to be a college student living in the dorms sharing a bathroom with countless others. Here are the thoughts running through my head:

Who does these things?

Who willingly touches the hair left behind in a communal shower (such is the case here, my comrades)?

Who wastes their time this way?

Did they do this at the end of their shower or did they return later when dried and dressed to complete the project?

Did they have a vision?

Did they choose the hair they wanted carefully or just work with what was on hand…or er, wall?

I’m just so completely grossed out.

Or am I just missing out on all the beauty around me?

Is this artist making money on this? Cuz I've got plenty of raw materials to work with after every shower. You've got the talent, I've got the hair, let's make lots of money...
Plus will you go jeans shopping with me?
Plus, Happy Birthday in 2 1/2 hours!

I don't know... somehow these sculptures really "speak" to me. They're saying, "HEY! CLEAN YOUR SHOWER!"

Happy Birthday, birthday girl. Sit up at midnight and watch your profile change from 30 to 31. It will be so exciting!

I think you misspelled blog "public." You meant pubic, right?

[insert barf noises]

Carly said...

That IS gross, and Happy Birthday.

Alice said...

Yes gross gross gross and happy happy birthday!

A thought...

maybe these are drawings that amazingly appear on the shower wall, mysteriously. You know, like the toast that looks like Christ, or the potato that seems to have the appearance of Bill CLinton?
Or even the white puffy clouds that resemble bunnies hopping across the sky?
It could happen.

I left Zookeene a "hair message" on the shower wall yesterday, but it dried and fell down before he saw it. Maybe I should preserve it with hairspray next time??

Abby said...

This is like a nightmare--the hair in the shower conspiring against me, leaving messages...I can actually feel it in my throat, gagging me...ew.

Amy Lynn said...

Did you hear me dry heaving? I'm dumbfounded. It is so utterly, grotesquely disgusting. I wouldn't do such things with my OWN hair much less the strangers in a dorm shower. Ugh.

Svenska & Sheaux said...

really im just pretty impressed. talk about using your talents where ever you go....

abelnap said...

Carrie Ann--happy late birthday first of all. Secondly, that is thouroughly disgusting. Gag gag gag. I need to come visit your ward again soon.

Lisa M. said...

OH my laws.

Yuck.

*laughing* @ Suzie... Zookeenie will never look at you the same.

Happy Happy Birthday. ( I know i am late, I suck)

Funny pics

I actually think these are really cool. I think I would enjoy looking at new art every time I shower. Come on, hair in the shower is just a given. Hair DRAWINGS in the shower, now that's something to sing about.

sarahbethgiles said...

I agree, Brittany. By the way... the hairspray works GREAT for preserving hair art!

Moragh said...

You have sufficiently made me ill. I who would touch someone else’s hair? I’m not feeling so well right now, I think I have to go vomit.

JP said...

um...don't take this the wrong way but I REALLY want you to post again soon. I'm just not sure I can handle the "hair pictures" anymore. Do I have weak stomach? Yes, yes...I guess I do...

bleh... ;)

Suzie Petunia said...

I'm seriously getting teary-eyed here because there isn't anything new on Stuff-N-Stuff today. Come on Ceeb...make my day! Or call. That would be fun, too.

Abby said...

Yes, please, a new post--one that's easier on the eyes.

Suzie Petunia said...

boo hoo-hoooooo...sniff sniff... still waiting... :(

Anonymously Yours... said...

Okay...I just watched the Blair Witch movie (on TV!) and even THAT isn't as scary as constantly seeing these images...

Hoo said...

Actually I'm very happy that someone took a negative and turned it into a positive as it were. I am always pro Art.

Carrie Ann--

I was making a logo for Suzie Petunia and needed some pics from her blog to personalize it. I was clicking through her pictures found one of you! I was so surprised! We know each other!

So how can I let you know who I am without giving away too much? How about this:

"Cold Sell" is an anagram for where we both used to work.

You hung bamboo from a certain lighting fixture.

I was the one married to the French girl.

Have you figured it out yet? Drop by my blog or email me at MormonFamilyMan at hotmail.com.
