Next up:  A tutorial on how to make your own sexy geisha costume.

Edited to add:  Or a tutorial on not getting it. By the way, speaking of comments, they have deleted some.

  1. Don’t tell me, let me guess. Joy stealers! No sense of humor! It’s all in good fun! And a white person (or two or three or sixty) thinks that there is absolutely no offensiveness about this. Why don’t you lighten up?

    (Lighten up … heh. To be fair. I crack myself up.)

  2. I particularly enjoyed the “I’m a white person and I have/had locs.” Or “I live in x and people of all colors have locs.” Sheesh.

  3. Melanie – I was thinking the same thing. I mean – if you want to study the history of Celtic hair no one would have a problem with that, but this is a blog about making a halloween craft for petes sake. Then the followup comment:

    “Halloween is a time for spoofs and exaggerations.”

    Nice.
