Another species nears extenction

crab louseThat’s right, through destruction of their natural habitat, mankind is once again, on the verge of wiping out an entire species.  That’s right ladies and gentlemen, since so many of you are getting bikini waxes, the noble crab louse is quickly running out of its habitat.

“Pubic grooming has led to a severe depletion of crab louse populations,” said Ian F. Burgess, a medical entomologist with Insect Research & Development Ltd. in Cambridge, England. “Add to that other aspects of body hair depilation, and you can see an environmental disaster in the making for this species.”

Pubic lice, known scientifically as Phthirus pubis, infest about 2 percent to 10 percent of the human population, researchers at East Carolina University said in a 2009 study.

Incidence data aren’t kept by the World Health Organization in Geneva because the gray, six-legged, millimeter-long louse doesn’t transmit disease, and national authorities such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta and U.K.’s Health Protection Agency don’t collect the information. ~ Bloomberg

And why are we doing this?  Just so you can look like this?

You’re telling me that it’s worth killing off an entire species.  A noble species that doesn’t even transmit disease, just so you can look like this?

Do you really want me to believe that…

Wait, what was I arguing about again?  I swear, if the EPA, or Fish & Game Commission, ever says that we have to stop bikini waxing, I will start the revolution myself.
