Minor League Team To Host 'Hairiest Back' Contest (AP, August 17, 2005)

The Potomac Nationals of the Carolina League are ready to let the fur fly later this month.

The Class-A affiliate of the Washington Nationals will hold its first-ever "Hairiest Back at the Ballpark" contest before their game against a team from Salem, Va., on Aug. 25.

According to the team's press release, the winner will receive a complimentary laser hair removal service valued at $2,500.

What kind of shriekin' sissy would want to go through life without his back hair?

Do those laser treatments really work? I wonder what they charge for ears.

If you ever change your mind let us know. Our complimentary spray-paint-can-and-cigarette-lighter hair removal service is valued at $12.50 and works just as good.

Its shows how far we have sunk towards being girly men that Laser hair removal is even considered.
