I heard that stuff doesn't even work. Just grows out the white peach fuzz left behind or something

Seems easy to be "neatly groomed" if you don't have any farking hair!

I can think of a much uglier term for what he did:

That's a bald faced lie; he thought it was medicine for his hairpiece sores.

Things will get hairy where he's going. Lock him up. He won't weave his way out of this.

In my day, if your hair started falling out when you were 16, by 19, you were a bald freak. There was nothing you could do about it. Children would spit at you, and no woman would mate with you, so you couldn't pass on your disgusting baldness gene. You were a public menace, a chrome dome at age 20. And that's the way it was.

Tip of the hat to clever subby.

That "to pay"/"toupee" pun never gets old. Wait, that's not right. That "to pay"/"toupee" pun got old a long time ago. Yeah, that's what I meant to say.

We had a von Clownstick thread Friday. It's just not that clever anymore.

Can you use Rogaine on your face?

I've always wanted a manly beard.

Barry Chen: I can probably get him to set you up.
Insp. Joe Dominguez: Actually, I stopped smoking pot years ago.
Barry Chen: Oh no? What's your drug of choice now, man?
Insp. Joe Dominguez: Uh, Rogaine.
Barry Chen: Rogaine? What's that? Do you snort it?
2013-05-05 10:28:14 AM  
$2,600 worth of teeth-whitening strips, weight-loss pills, probiotics, condoms, Rogaine and other hair-growth products

so he is trying to improve his appearance and get laid?

lol -- seriously, if you are going bald, fark it.

I noticed the top of my head getting thinner middle of college (23ish) by 25 I really didn't care.

Wised up and started buzz cutting my head every 2 weeks for that totally bald look. There's a bit of hair there but it's all the same length so you can't really tell.  I'm too lazy to actually shave my head.  I've been told the fully bald look works for me, and I'm cool with that.

To hell with paying for (or stealing something) that doens't work anyway. I was told by a plastic surgeon, sure, I could have the hair transplant thing done, it would look great for a while till I started losing more hair in the un transplanted area.

At that point you might as well put a sign on your head saying "i paid thousands for stupid cosmetic surgery"

When he gets caught, do you think he'll wig out?

"Man accused of taking Rogaine from a pharmacy shelf with no intention did not want toupee"

There, fixed it.

Pretty much, if you've got thinning hair it will thicken it, it doesn't much help for large bald spots except give you some fuzz after months of use, and that falls out if you stop taking it for a few days.

Rogaine orginally was going to be marketed as a high blood pressure medication.  When people testing it said they wanted to keep their leftover pills since their hair grew back, the drug makers said, "Screw the heart medication angle, let's do hair loss."

Another side note.  Back in 2000-something, the makers of an African sleeping sickness drug threatened to stop making it since it was not making much money.  The World Health Organization came up with a solution that benefited both the drugmaker and people afflicted with the disease.  One of the side effects of the drug is hair loss, so they convinced the drug maker to sell it as a hair removal drug--Vaniqua.
The alternative for seriously advanced cases is melarspromol, which is called "arsenic and antifreeze," as it basically is an arsenic compound that has to be dissolved in propylene glycol (antifreeze).  It dissolves regular IV tubes so special ones have to be used.  That drug almost was cut off, but thanks to Vaniqua, its safe.

Am I permitted to use the "there will be hell toupee" pun or is that just for Trump threads?

Subby, I do believe the thief wanted to feel the rush of the wind in his hair whilst being chased

/but wound up in a hairy situation, with the cops giving him greys with the stress
//not trying to split hairs, but let the man grow, LET HIM GROW!
