Yeah, I have a Scots-Irish background... and it wasn't that far in the past. I fully understand the thinking. (I was simply pointing out how silly we are... or, in my case, were.)

Hair insurance?

Add another to the list of body parts insured.

Troy Polamalu loves his hair and so does the company that produces a shampoo he endorses. Head and Shoulders announced Monday it has taken out a $1 million policy with Lloyd's of London on the hair of the Pittsburgh Steelers safety.

I have spent an inordinate amount of time at this very weird but hilarious website this week called Regretsy, where they make fun of stuff on Etsy. Some of it is NSFW but so hilarious!

This might be my favorite, complete with audio.
Regretsy – River of Love


Regretsy - Where DIY Meets WTF
is the homepage, but the very firs feature is, ahem, NSFW.

Enjoy!
