ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Ah, civilization! (Via Mitch O'Connell)
I want a wallpaper patterned inflatable derp hat.
I want whatever that hair dryer thing is – because it clearly isn’t ACTUALLY a hair dryer, because the girl’s hair isn’t wet.
It’s a bloody effective hair-dryer. That’s why her hair is dry already. Vorsprung durch thingumajig…. My German’s pretty rusty, but actually, I think the bit that begins “Zum Frisieren…” indicates that it is a dual-function thingumajig, able to both dry and curl hair with terrifying teutonic efficiency.
They basically just state that it has a strong setting (more pressure and heat to dry the hair) and a mild setting to curl the hair (a mild stream of warm air) .
If American gadgets don’t do this, it’s not a sign of bad engineering but superior marketing. :-)
Ohhhhh, it’s a hair dryer! I thought it might be a delouser.
Ach du lieber! I think that lady is wearing a Frauenfelder on her head, nicht wahr?
Posting the title of an ultra catchy song and not even providing a link, tsk
damn! i wanted to be the guy who made the buzzcocks’ connection…
I hate, hate, hate the fact that brain extractors for men only come in black and brown.
Fortunately that hate subsides quite quickly.

My mum had something very similar to this. Weird childhood recall.
Mrs Galactus deals with her daughter’s bad hair day….
I’ve actually seen that exact wallpaper patterned derp hat in action.
As incomprehensible now as it was then.
The wearer couldn’t hear anything because the device went: “WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE…” , while it made hot air.
It smelled like my huge inflatable dolphin beach toy did in the sun.
PVC products release toxic hydrogen chloride gas when heated.
I know it’s wrong. I know it’s poison. But I *LOVE* that smell.
Does anyone else think her hand under the child’s hair is unnaturally large?
Creepy. Although it looks like her fingers are normal-sized somehow.
What is this…I don’t even.
Hey, didn’t somebody wear that to the royal wedding this last spring?
She looks like a lego person! Also I think her palm looks large because the child’s hair in that light is actually close to her flesh tone so that the lock of hair in her palm looks like it’s part of her hand.
