...that should you firmly apply a thick head of hair to a long and fresh strip of fly paper, the glue is apparently water soluable and will shampoo out with little trouble.

The trouble is with detaching the fly paper from the head of hair to begin with.

signed,

the voice of very recent experience.

Personally, I would have de-hung the flypaper. Of course, then you might wind up with your face stuck to it too. Let's not even think about the flies...

Don't get it in your mouth. Flypaper contains arsenic.

Well, it used to. Possibly not nowadays. There have been been cases of murder-by-boiled-flypaper. That is, if the victim stuck around.

Next time (???????) cut around fly paper and soak your head. Paper will come off with glue.
I would laugh but I am the one who got her hand stuck in a vacuum cleaner beater brush and was bruised elbow to finger tips.

Oh dear. We have a saying here that is probably in the same tone of voice as your thread title, "Don't worry, darling..."

There are really serious controls on the use of arsenic these days. No longer can you just walk into your local apothecary shop and ask for "inheritance powder" and give a wink or boil the flypaper. The same is true for thallium, strychnine, curare, belladonna, cyanide, hemlock -- even ricin.

Takes all the fun out of lemonade stands.

"The trouble is with detaching the fly paper from the head of hair to begin with."

There are military barbers who can offer advice....


(You didn't say whether the attachment was done before or after hanging the stuff...or during... if before, I'd suggest fly swatters from now on. If during, I'd suggest wearing a hat next time. If after, I'd suggest not walking around with the lights off.)

And ya' know that the pest strip is always attached to the ceiling or something higher than you so there you are hanging from whatever and wondering, "Hmmmmmm, I hope no one is watching"...

So there was this record store—Campus Music and Gallery—in Seattle's University District. The record store had a resident cat.

On a sunny summer day, there were some flies buzzing around the front window display, so Jim Bates, the proprietor, put a couple of sheets of fly paper in the window.

The resident cat decided to sun himself in the window and hopped into it, landing with all four feet on one of the sheets of fly paper.

He lifted one front paw and the fly paper came with it.

Then he tried the other front paw. It, two, was stuck.

He inventoried his hind paws with the same result.

Then he made a major mistake. He sat down to think the matter over.

The cat was last seen heading sou'east under full sail and with a strong tailwind!

My son's parakeet escaped his cage once and flew right into the fly paper strip! What a ruckus!! We got the paper off only to discover that his feet had glue on them as well and he got stuck to the perch when we put him back in his cage. So my son being the animal lover he is stripped down naked and got in the bath tub with the bird to try and wash the glue off. The males on this thread may wish to look away at this point... the parakeet, who found none of this to be amusing ran straight up between his legs and bit him right on the end of his...um, well...you get the idea.

OUCH!!!!!!!

Boy, that must hurt, Christina. Good thing it was only a parakeet, and not a larger parrot.

A really stupid girl I knew was taunting the parakeet that she and her boyfriend had in their apartment. She once stuck out her tongue at the bird (which was inside its cage, cursing her), and it siezed the opportunity brilliantly and bit her HARD right on the end of her extended tongue! This elicited a gratifying shriek from the girl, and was probably the high point of the week as far as the parakeet was concerned. They hated each other, those two. I'm thinking it was probably the boyfriend's bird, not hers. I hope so, anyway.
