Hoover: The Sheitel Macher

Last Wednesday night, our vacuum cleaner stopped working properly. I turned it over and found that the rollers were totally wrapped in hair.

I spent twenty minutes cutting hair out of the vacuum cleaner and showed the pile to my wife, telling her that I now had enough hair to make a clone of her.

My wife didn't appreciate this idea. She suggested that perhaps someone could make a nice sheitel out of it.

During my parent's visit, my mother cut another "sheitel" out of the vacuum cleaner and was actually able to repair the vacuum cleaner by putting a new belt on the motor. She is certainly much better at fixing things than I am.

I have no idea. It is a mystery!

Jewish Blogmeister: Now there is a GREAT idea!! How much do you think I could get for it? I will make sure to note that the hair did not come from India ;)

Over the years my vacum cleaners have collected pretty amazing amounts of hair in the rollers as well!
I'm pretty sure that the long ones are peyos strands, but I keep wondering where the grey ones came from...

I would like to see the peyos-eating vacuum cleaner at your house :)

Are your kids afraid of it like my kids are?

OK, here's my advice, ASJ:

Step 1: Stop vacuuming people's heads.

Step 2: See step 1.

PT: What I thinking!? I think I will follow step 2 ;)

Thanks for the advice PT! I imagine that would add years to my vacuum.

The little kids are not fans of the vacuum at all (2-6 years old), but the older ones (10-13) like to do the vacuuming whenever possible. The don't think that the one in the middle has an opinion.

Rod: I tell my daughter that my beard is made up of the hair that fell off the top of my head and stuck to my chin ;)

That is an awful big pile of hair! I like the e-bay idea. Scary thing is I bet someone would actually buy it!

MCAryeh: Its got to at least be worth $25 + $12 shipping, right?
