For when a brazillian has left you cold

With the growing trend (at least among the porn stars & strippers I sleep with) of complete genital hairlessness, it's refreshing to see that the centuries old tradition of the Merkin has been reborn for a new generation.

Perhaps an NSFW is in order? Also, awesome.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: if enough people are seeing your cha-cha that you feel the need for grooming regimens and kicky little outfits, may be a few quiet nights at home are in order. And don't even get me started on anus bleaching. If you clorox the culo, then well, you probably spend a lot of time with your head up it.

jonmc, you're an east coast man through & through. Come spend some time in sunny Los Angeles, or better yet, Las Vegas, and you'll be bleaching your own anus just to fit in.

I don't believe that California actually exists, jonson. It's a land created by ad execs where everybody is blonde and walks around in bikinis and the ghetto has palm trees.

All that sunshine and vitamin C can't be good for you.

Sure, you say that, but now what tag are we going to use for that story about Ben Jones' toupee?

wouldn't "Bridge Out Ahead," or "Take Number Please" have been better, sourwookie?

I wanted "Slippery When Wet" but it doesn't utilize the inverted-triangle shape.

Pearl Jam had a two-song CD called "Merkinball" that accompanied Neil Young's "Mirrorball."

Sorry, I'm late, I thought you said anus and merkin, not. It was pretty dark in there.

President Merkin Muffly... I never noticed that before. Thanks for enriching my life, jonson!

this merkin, it animates?
posted by mowglisambo at 10:40 AM on January 29, 2006


btw, did anyone else notice how expensive those things are? upwards of 150 pounds! for that, you could get your real pubes professionally trimmed & colored.

All this sexist cooter wig , poor penis. It's MY wang and I take care of it !

My intramural soccer team on campus has been called "The Merkins" for the past four years. One of my roommates thought up the name. I had no idea what it meant at the time; he told me to look it up.

So when the President refers to "hard-working 'Merkins," do you think he's participating in a sly viral ad campaign for pubic wigs?

a bowler or a Davy Crockett style coonskin?

Wait a damn minute. Tattoos are unfashionable now, but this is groovy?

Q. What the difference between a merkin and George Bush?

A. One covers up dirty cunts, spreads bugs and is a useless fixture that costs lots of money; The other is a pubic wig.

no, this is idiotic, too.

it's like that old joke: How is a cowboy hat like a hemmorhoid? Sooner or later, every asshole has one.

Could apply to just about any trendy affectation.

Poonskin!

Which might be understandable if they were made from the genuine pubic hair of third world virgins, but these things look like some nasty-ass polyester shit.

A bobbies helmet, of course.

Wait, wait, wait - anus bleaching. What in your lord's name are you talking about. (And no, I refuse to google that one.)

jonson, it hasn't gone unnoticed that in addition to cooterwig, you also brought us the delightful cooterwash tag. If only we could all be so poetic.
