Question of the day

Dec 03, 2015

Our last question asked: A woman in Kentucky is recovering after surgery to remove an infection caused by doing what? Wearing a sparkly hair-tie on her wrist, which created an abrasion that led to an abscess. 

Congrats to Kelly Phillips Erb for being the very first to get that right (and also being the first to admit she wears a hair-tie there "all of the time, YIKES!"). Honorable mentions go out to Samantha KruseCharlotte LoBuono (who also does it "all the time BTW"), Laura AlixRon Casalotti (who jokes "or, in other words, a new meaning to Death Metal Hair Bands"), Ken WalkerRob GatesPerrin Lawrence (who similarly confesses the same practice "until now"), Toni AntonettiRachel Sentes (who marvels "Who knew a glitter hair tie could be so dangerous!!"), Sara JacobsonMark Gibbs (who complains "Damned if I can find a joke in this. Please ask questions with more humor potential" -- sorry, Mark!), Eve Byron (who concludes "Now we all know better"), Sarah Loyd (who divulges "Saw it 100 times yesterday on FB [job hazard]. Gross"), Lucia A. Walinchus (who resolves "Yet another reason to spurn glitter"), Claudine LaforceCarrie GrayRobin Soslow (who protests "Yet ppl with rubberbands on wrists go unpunished"), Hollywood Highlands and Cindi Lash for all answering correctly, as well.

As for today's question, here it is (with slightly more humor potential, we think): The company U-Pet is trending on Facebook after offering which hot new product?
