Of Mane And Nice...!
I was on FB the other day - for my trimestrial visit there, I think - and I saw this:
Did you know that unintentional drowning is the second leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 14 years?
For more info, check out our mane man,
Michael Phelps' Facebook page!
They simply must have done this for me... rrrright?
Before we progress, however, and proceed with the official return of the popular feature, a word (or a hundred words) about the Water Safety Month thingie...
Michael Phelps? Our "mane man"...? Maybe he is yours, H&SFM folks - and maybe he is yours too, sports fans - but he sure isn't ours, here, on aquamusings! We'd rather go with considerably less-hairy Daring Diver Darren Taylor discovered on History Channel's Superhuman program.
Or the late Patrick Musimu - even though his had all been shaven off (we presume; for a better free-diving experience? We'll go with that. Anyways, where he is now -six feet under, rather than several fathoms below- the hair must be growing back again... But that's another story.)
Phelps only has the hair going for him, really. So, he has hair and is able to shampoo in the shower - what is so spectacular about THAT...?!?
I must express my disappointment with the very name of the product, too: H&S For Men. For Men? You mean, all these years that you made people believe that the shampoo was for anyone with a mild-to-serious dry scalp or dandruff problem, you were only truly catering to the women's needs and not at all to the poor guys stuck with this problem? That is sickening! This is OUTRAGEOUS - as a certain version of good ol' Aquaman would say, were he here and were he confronted with such a fact! Guys should feel betrayed, alright - and boycott this gooey green or blue junk, in return and proper retaliatory act! Real men can deal with flakes any number of other ways, truth be told; whereas sissies with long-flowing manes and scaly scalps that are, on top of all that, graying with the tides might as well give Nice'N'Easy a try, while they're at it! My best, all-time favorite Aquaficionadas (Christie & Heidi being but two of the lot - see both below) shouldn't be the only ones allowed to use all of those hair products (despite their highly-pollutive effects on water and suspected high toxicity levels, too) and get away with it!!! (As in get away from each dosage alive and, relatively-speaking, still well enough to swim on for years to come...!) But that's another story, really... Let's rather focus on just the water -and the women- here, as we always should, indeed...
