NAMPA, Idaho (AP) — One man’s back hair is another man’s canvas.
At least that’s how Mike Wolfe, 35, of Nampa, Idaho, has decided to approach manscaping.
Wolfe said after years of feeling ashamed of his body hair, he asked a friend in 2008 to trim an American flag on his back rather than undergoing hair removal processes like shaving or waxing. Since then, the two meet up several times throughout the year to design a new creation onto Wolfe’s back.
Tyler Harding, a former graphic artist who has been friends with Wolfe for more than a decade, said it takes about an hour to complete the artistic trim.
And the creations can now be seen on a calendar — called a Calend-hair — available for $20. Some proceeds will benefit a charity at Wolfe’s church.
VETERINARIAN REMOVES TOYS FROM PUPPY’S STOMACH
LEVITTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A Philadelphia puppy is getting back to his bouncy self after two plastic squeaky toys were removed from his stomach.
Doctors at Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Center in Levittown said the only sign that 6-month-old Jasper was having problems was he couldn’t keep food down. He otherwise seemed energetically normal.
They said X-rays showed the two balls were taking up most of the space in the Cane Corso’s stomach.
Dr. Scott Joudrey, who surgically removed the red-and-green balls Saturday, said “dogs eat crazy things.”
HAWAII VACATION LEADS TO CHARGES FOR EX-OFFICER
STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — A vacation in Hawaii not only cost a former Connecticut police officer his job, but also led to criminal charges being brought against him.
Donald Chen was granted two weeks off from Dec. 1-15 by the Stamford Police Department so he could report for training with his U.S. Army Reserves unit.
Eight days into Chen’s military leave, police received a call from the Army asking where he was. After initially telling a lie involving his “sick” father, police said Chen admitted he was vacationing in Hawaii with his girlfriend.
Chen, who resigned from the force Dec. 14, is facing charges of felony larceny and defrauding a public community. He turned himself in to police Tuesday.
