  • What’s Your Merkin?

    Posted by Shannon Love on September 24th, 2010 (All posts by )

    Mine looks something like this:
    My merkin

    I am somewhat embarrassed to admit I already knew what a merkin was. I learned it as a teenager reading John Varley’s “The Barbie Murders.”

    Things like this make me glad I’m a provincial who is isolated from the hip, urban fashions. Come to think of it, the rest of you should be glad as well.

    Somethings, you just don’t want to see.

      We are all Merkins. Merkins live in Merka.

      Yeah, my wife keeps telling me everyone, male and female, in Hollywood is using “hair extensions.”

      Where I come from, ‘hair extension’ means just skipping a haircut for an extra few weeks…
      Just looked up ‘merkin’. Eeww.
