NJ scraps plans to ban genital waxing

TRENTON, N.J. — New Jersey is smoothing out differences over a plan to ban bare-it-all bikini waxing.

The state on Friday decided to reverse course on the proposal after angry salon owners complained about losing business ahead of swimsuit season.

"It was an unnecessary issue," said spa owner Linda Orsuto. "In New Jersey especially, where the government has been picking our pockets for so long, it was like, 'Just stay out of our pants, will you?'"

Since we’re dealing with nanny state politicians, they’ll probably just tax “genital waxing” instead.

It’s really time they banned sweat marks on armpits. While they’re at it, they should ban skid marks too.

It’s really time they banned sweat marks on armpits. While they’re at it, they should ban skid marks, bad breath, and pubic hairs on public toilets as well.

“It’s really time they banned sweat marks on armpits. While they’re at it, they should ban skid marks too.”

They could form a skid mark task force and do focus groups.

It’s just waxing after all. Not that big a thing. Glad I don’t have to go underground for this too. ;)

Some people like the Drapes and the Carpets to match while others prefer a smooth floor covering.

It's nice to know that in the middle of “THE WORST ECONOMIC CRISIS SINCE THE GREAT DEPRESSION”, there are elected Representatives wasting time on something as stupid as this.

A proper application of wax to the aforementioned undergarments should prevent these particular marks.

Salon owners worried that customers would travel across state lines to get the popular — and painful — procedure, or try to wax themselves.

Oh, now, this definitely sounds like something that needs to be regulated. People trying to wax themselves...*shudder*

It was a Mr. Clean commercial.

BTW - Checked out your page. Who are the people in the photos. My Nephew, the Marine, is going to be deployed to Afghanistan in a month or two.
The other Nephew just got out of the Air Force after six years of service.

My guess is that Jon Corzine dodged a bullet here. With all the other things that are going on, this ban would really have put Corzine in the bull’s eye during election season.

It’s quite possible that when we look back at this incident, we’ll say that this came within a hair’s breadth of costing Jon Corzine the election.

OK, I'm going to say it.

As opposed to Genital whacking?

Dear Moderator, Obama made me do it. It was one of his throwaway lines on Leno, but he went with the Special Olympics remark instead.

I did make an assumption that if there were "skid marks" the marks had to skid on something! I assumed they applied themselves to undergarments.

Panties.

Shorts

Skivvies.

It is my opinion that the issue that put Christie Todd Whitman over the top against Jim Florio in the 1993 gubernatorial race in Nazi Jersey was the "runny egg" controversy.

Some fascist in the Florio Administration's health department unilaterally decided that runny eggs (eggs not fully cooked) could potentially cause food poisoning and so decreed them outlawed in all New Jersey eating establishments! Eggs over easy and Caesar salad were declared illegal!! (This is not a joke.)

Florio was slow to respond to this action by one of his own minions but he finally came out and said what everybody already knew - - the policy was ridiculous and unenforceable on its face. But this controversy erupted near the end of the campaign season and the damage was done. Whitman won a close race.

The toilet paper tax did Florio no favors. And this was before the global warming hysteria, which Democrats have figured out is an excellent excuse for raising taxes incentivizing eco-friendly behavior.
