    I bet PA sees an increase in the number wax victims.

    Why would a state decide that a bikini wax is illegal?

    :rofl:

    If I had the cash I'd open up a bikini wax shop in NYC right now with a special discount for Jersey residents. I'd make a killing!

    I never knew that getting a wax was addictive. Perhaps some control measures should be considered.

    Wax abuse is a good way to fry your brain.

    All fun aside, it's not that the wax itself is illegal, it's that they won't let cosmeticians perform it. Going to pass it to qualified derms I guess. Probably a health/safety rationale. It's in the article.

    Finally some things start to make perfect sense.

    Presumably because they have alreay solved all the problems of crime, drugs, violence, homelessness etc in NJ and can now deal with the few odds and ends which stop it being a paradise on Earth.

    I remember being on the roof of the WTC in 1998. The view was spectacular all the way around, except for one miserable looking patch to the southwest. I asked my friend, "What's that over there?" He said, "That's Jersey".

    They should start with the name.

    New Jersey won't even let you pump your own gas. I guess those NJ'ers can't do anything right.

    Duct tape thongs make bikini waxing obsolete, anyway. They look cool, don't slip (no embarrassingly revealing moments), and automatically take care of the hair problem evey time they're removed.

    They can cause bladder problems in a few wearers that seem to like their thongs so much that they never want to take them off.

    Hmmm, I had planned on showing a demo video of a duct tape thong. It's not that I couldn't find any - it's just that they're all slightly disturbing.

    They may be illegal in NJ anyway. For instance I think Saran Wrap is already not sold to minors there because of its potential for prophylactic use.

    So duct tape ... there's a 1001 uses for that. It must be a controlled substance there.

    The good thing about duct-tape thongs is that you can ride motorcycles at 200 mph without fear of losing them in the wind. NASCAR swears by the stuff.
