So I'm innocently sitting at my desk, doing work type stuff, and the phone rings. My mother is on the other end of the line laughing her ass off.

"What's up?"

"I heard the funniest thing on NPR."


"So apparently, one of the best things to sop up oil with is hair stuffed into nylons. They call them booms."

"Huh. Who knew?"

"Right? Anyhow, hair isn't really that much of a problem. Salons have been saving it for this sort of thing for years. And animal hair works too. The problem is no one wears nylons anymore."

"Well, I certainly don't unless absolutely necessary."

"Except drag queens."


"So the group that does this is conveniently based in San Francisco. And the transvestite community has stepped up it's game."

"That's awesome."

"So apparently salons across the country are saving hair and sending it to these people, and it's being stuffed in the nylons. They're calling the parties to make the sausages 'Boom-b-ques'."

Who said American innovation was dead???
