On a side note: I wonder how many Bumpits the half-term governor is wearing. Also it’s humorous that the Bumpits company thinks it needs to state the following warning to its customers: Bumpits are not edible. What a shame — they do look delicious.


Is a drop in public perception causing the hair bump to get bigger?
