Head scratcher of the day

Sometimes the interwebz is a scary place. I used a popular search engine -- the one that rhymes with 'joogle' -- to search for images of the small flap of skin between the thumb and forefinger known as the web on your hand. I intended to compose a smart-assed post to counter the comments on my previous post. Apparently that part of the hand has become a common location for body piercing! WTH? How do you grab a hold of anything with a chunk of metal embedded there? I am so out of touch with popular culture it is plain sad. I suppose if one could find a way to attach a non-slip/heat resistant silicone strip it could be handy. But I have gloves for that.

I don’t understand the whole piercing and tattoo rage. I guess a granny with a full sleeve and a naval ring is suppose to be hot.

The next generation will be unpierced, unttatted, undrugged, and non-smoking.

But they'll probably be a bunch of drunks.

This stuff all goes in cycles.

like the mandarins with unclipped nails to prove they didn't work for a living.
