    That is hysterical. 😀 Now I want to find a pig and try this.
    (Also, nice accent, Unseen Man of NTMTOM Land.)

    My hair is the opposite…I curl it, and it straightens itself out as soon as I leave the house.

    Allein, when you live in the tropics, you start out with curly hair, you blow dry it straight, and it curls up again as soon as that hot humid air hits you when you open the door to go outside…

      I have both things happen depending on whether I actually curl my hair or leave it. Curled hair – go out in humidity, it all comes out. Go out in humidity and it’s au natural it frizzes into a poofy nimbus. Charming!

        Poofy Nimbus. I like their music.

      My hair has gotten somewhat curlier as I’ve gotten older, but when I was younger…not a chance (at least not without chemicals). I remember curling it for our winter dance in college, and by the time I got to the dance (a five minute walk), all the curl was gone. Don’t know why I bothered.

        Isn’t it funny how these things stay with us? I remember straightening my hair (chemically) when I was maybe a senior in HS and going to the Jersey Shore where I had a job as a Mother’s Helper and it was frizz city from the moment I got there. I had about 3 days of cornsilk and then a frizz bomb.

        Nearly the same thing happened to me, Allein, except it was with senior pics. My mom made the appt for right after school and by then my lovely curled hair had gone nearly straight. (Hair spray was forbidden to me.) I hate those pictures with a passion!😖

          I actually liked my senior pictures. But I didn’t try to curl my hair for ’em. 😉

    Well, I fooled you!

        Thank you for that – I love Stan Freberg – The Banana Boat song, all his wonderful ads in the 60’s for The Prune Advisory Board. I remember being in the San Franciso building – name escapes me at the moment – where the Prune Advisory Board held sway. I worked nearby a shop called Topeka. Eons ago.

        Turn off the bubble machine.

    I love English accents and humor, or humour, I guess it is.

    Knew there was something missing in my repertoire.
    Now I am complete. *sigh*. But wait, I still have to
    get over the algebra hurdle.

    • Murray C. June 17, 2016 / 7:06 pm

      You and me both. Sigh.

    Who knew, indeed. I’m wondering what was this gent doing when he made the discovery? Pig tickling?

    Hmmm, this might come in handy at the Pug Spa.

    • 6rabbits June 17, 2016 / 8:17 pm

      Yes. I, too, wondered how he gained this specific knowledge! Perhaps I can experiment on a friendly pig at the 4-H Fair?😏

    • Smartypants June 17, 2016 / 9:45 pm

      Is ‘pig tickling’ anything like ‘incubating a sprinkler’? 😀

    I was expecting him to run his finger the other way to curl the tail back up.
    I wonder if that would work? Now I want to find a pig and try it!

    • allein June 17, 2016 / 9:46 pm

      Me too!
