He Most Certainly Does...

I found this while doing research for a post about
how the word "pubes" makes me cringe.

I don't like the word "pubes" either, I've found; especially with 'em being deep fried (thankee, WriteP, for putting that in my head).

Interestingly enough, "Pubes" was the name of a tribe of folks in Stephen King's Dark Tower series:

(I LOVE Wiki-- is there anything that site DOESN'T document??)

with the movement towards pubic shaving (or at least trimming) over the last few years, this sign is particularly gross.

Actually, you could do a LOT with this post, now that I think of it. For example, inspired by Ghost's love of Wiki, I found the technical term for the removal of body hair: glabrousness.

I didn't know we HAD such a word in English, other than perhaps "smoothie", which is a term that I've heard various social nudists use to refer to folks who shave off their hair. Of course, that makes the drink company, "Planet Smoothie" take on a whole NEW context...

OK, I'm stopping while ahead-- I'm SURE you can find some interesting direction to take this off into... Off into the thicket, as it were...

Oh, my goodness-- this is SOOO educational!! I just discovered the merkin: a type of "wig" worn over the shaved naughty bits area... Although, originally it was worn by prostitutes to prevent lice and cover signs of STD's...

Great scott, you could start a whole NEW blog about this stuff!!

My gay friends love the "I don't like Bush." bumper stickers/signs/pins.

So it wasn't just one of your typical "pubes" Google searches, you were doing this for your blog?

I need to try that excuse sometime.

What word do you use instead of pubes?

The Carpet?
Lady/Man Grass?

I am curious...
