ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Not making a pun about itching was a rash decision.
Those bastards have secretly been using me as their guinea pig for years. *scratch scratch* But they’re going to get what’s coming to them. Oh yes. Soooooooooon.
Is the headquarters of the itch studies foundation known as the lice-eum?

Itching can be very serious. I read of a case where one person had a psychosomatic itch that caused her to scratch right through her skull.
I thought about that when I saw this too. And was terrified all over again. But I’m glad they’re studying it.

Not Koroshiya Ichi?
Now there’s a reference I wasn’t expecting.
scratching the pun must have felt good
