    Deloused?! How buys a headdress or clothing or anything for that matter that needs to have bugs removed from it first?!

      • First…this concept is utterly repugnant, my louse are a tight community, and don’t want your hand me down housing.

      • Second: *headresses*, more comma splices and sentence fragments then I care to list, “are *definitely* aren’t…”, wtf…I are definitely aren’t enjoying this diarrhea grammar…please go back to elementary school, and enroll yourself in their “special program”.

      • Third…why? Just…why? This is WHY certain members of our society shouldn’t have access to, A. a digital camera, and B. the internet.

      [bug corey]especially since 48 hours in the freezer is usually good enough to kill bugs–if not the ova of same.

      Related note on the “ick” factor of how does Sparky know these ponso (oops, Gary P Nunn in my head) ponchos are “infested”?

      Is it fleas, bedbugs, moths, or even lice as indicated?

      Is that why these are unsuitable for chilluns or cubscouts, as that is how they became infested?

      Ick.

          Makes me wonder though if this is a purposefully “funny” post (by someone trying SOOO hard to get on YSaC) or if it’s actually by that Etsy seller… but why would they GIVE them away when their poncho is now so famous???

          Still, it is Sucking at CL if they ripped it off from someone else and made the lice comment. FWIW, I think it still fits your criteria – just ad the “asshat” tag and it’s all good.*

Today I thought we’d get a little bit crazy and paint a portrait of a man wearing…. well, let’s just call it ‘something’. I will need some cadmium white, a little yellow ochre, alizarin crimson, and pthalo blue. (25 minutes pass). Now, before we sign this and call it complete, how about we add a happy little louse….. oh what the heck… let’s add a whole bunch of them because everyone needs a friend. That concludes our show for today, so until we meet again, happy painting and God bless, my friend.”

    This was on Regretsy a month ago, same exact picture and everything. Now I’m not saying someone COULDN’T have just decided not to sell their handmade poncho for 130.00$, and instead give them away, I’m just saying one of these posts (either this one or the regretsy one) smells suspicious.

    And since the person still has this poncho listed on Etsy, I’m thinking it is this post that is “fauxsuck”. Made by a “fauxSparky”

    When my oldest was little, she brought home lice from school and shared them with her sisters. Being the kind of mom I am, I called their doctor when the shampoo stuff I got from the store wasn’t killing the little parasites (the lice, not the children). He told me to use mayonaise on their heads and of course, wash all their clothing in hot water. It worked.

    I think the ad is a troll who took the ad either from the etsy store or regretsy. If it was real the simple answer to delousing would be to take the nasty horse hair off of it and boil the poncho. The poncho would still be ugly, but it would be slightly less disgusting.

    Here is a song I writed [sic] myself, to the tune of La Cucaracha. It was written while in a very silly mood at summer camp between 6th and 7th grade. Except for the third line.

    I gotta Taco,
    I wanna Poncho,
    with a horse’s derriere.*
    And this Poncho,
    while I eat my Taco,
    would be the only thing I wear.

    *That was not the original third line. The original was: “made of felt and fun to wear.” This is because it was written after we were supposed to be making pillows out of felt and stuffing and whatnot (or it may have been something entirely different, but I digress) but, after seeing [Name Omitted] make a cape instead, I got me some scissors and made a poncho, which I wore the rest of the day, including during our game of Capture the Flag in the woods with the path that lead to Bond Park**.

    **I include this because those of you who live in my general area stand a chance of knowing the part of the Cary Family YMCA I’m talking about.
