Britain's Got Eyebrows.

I’ve always been a fan of the luxuriant eyebrow.

Bette and Joan encouraged theirs to thrive and flourish:

This one depilated:

Not so sure about the men.

BUT I hope that Susan Boyle doesn’t get plucked and pruned by the makeover merchants.

If there is still a person on the planet (Hello Dave) who doesn’t know about Sue Boyle - here she is.

Being impressed by Susan, her perfect pitch and her non botoxed appearance, I tuned in to ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ on Saturday night. There’s a first time for everything - even a talking parrot that doesn’t talk.

And I fell for the sexy Mr Smith and his sax in a very big way.

I hope they don't give her a makeover.

But having said that, my first thought upon seeing her was, "Hold her down while I get the tweezers!"

Was she running a marathon after the show or is that her "Stars in Their Eyes" (or whatever it's called) number? If the latter why is she wearing it under her frock?

PS: Nice one Everton.....I seem to recall Everton is amongst your teams...if I'm wrong ignore this! ;)

(seriously)Young Italian Women with hairy armpits are rather nice!

I was impressed with the two hairy armpits in the last picture.

Let's get those eyebrows shaved so that they can be turned into a nice mohair type jumper.

There's nowt wrong with a big juicy pair of eyebrows. In the winter you can pull them down to your toes and keep out the biting cold.

As it happens I had heard of her. she featured in The Times this week. I haven't heard her sing, of course.

I think a little reshaping in the eyebrow area may be permissable.

It's her 'Britain's got Talent' number - hence my title!
Do keep up NiC. :)
Yes Everton is my team - fancy beating United on penalties.

There was a time in the seventies when we had hairy armpits (feminist doctrine) - I am really embarrased by the photos now.
Do the still do it (I mean not do it) in Italy?

Ant and Dec?
I wouldn't have thought they were your type actually.

If we wait until winter we might manage a size 14.

I believe Dennis Healey did just that.

You should play the video - don't pretend you haven't got time.
I did the link especially for you.

She wants to be Elaine Paige. He wants to be Kenny G.

I want to emigrate.

I don't know who she is.
I don't care who she is.
I won't watch any programme of the sort to which you allude.
Write about Everton, or something else more interesting. They just thrashed somebody 0-0.

Blogger KAZ said...

Don't - you'd hate it out there.

I know - I know!
But one should keep abreast of popular culture - I did it once and that's enough.
But I feel better for it.
I could go on and on about Moyes and the Boys - don't encourage me.

Mmmm I'm married to a fine pair of Irish eyebrows, they have a life of their own. Re. Susan Boyle - isn't the way she looks what makes her different? Change her and she's just another singer.

Blogger Mopsa said...

Lordy. lordy, I kept on hearing about Susan Boyle so had a quick you-tube hunt and oh my...she is a very average, nothing special about her voice at all singer. She can hit a note and hold it well, she'd be great at the community panto, but a world class singer - get outa here! Have we lost all sense of musical quality? Her looks have nothing to do with it - apart from the fact that's what has made her so famous!

I quite agree Kaz. Trimming for men and shaping for women but without going too far is fine, but if I ever had a teen daughter, not to PLUCK her eyebrows would be my No.1 piece of advice to her, as the trend only ever lasts about 10 minutes and if they don't grow back you are stuck with pencil brows forever. Luckily mine grew back, if not quite as luxuriantly as before.

Blogger The Poet Laura-eate said...

PS I think Mary Boyle would benefit from a bit of a makeover, but again, without going too far. Decent hairdo, decent make-up, lose a few pounds perhaps. And slightly tamer eyebrows obviously.

Everyone benefits from looking their best, even if they don't go the whole cosmetic surgery hog.

The mono browed are Neanderthal throwbacks who need killing.

Hairy caterpillars should also be banned, as should fluffy slippers.

I'm hoping that a vagrant who spits on stage, sups from a can of Tenants Extra and has masses of ginger nostril hair wins Britain's Got Talent Next year singing Danny Boy.

Hello Reasons:
As long as he doesn't have a life of his own - we can't have that can we?
This could be true - but remember what happened to Celine Dion.

I followed the link from a blog before I knew anything about her - so the voice came as a total surprise and I was impressed.
But she'll never be Shirley Bassey.

Was it during the 70s when everyone removed their eyebrows? I didn't because they are my one good feature.
Or does it happen during every decade?

Laura 2:
Agree - after all we have a duty to those who have to look at us don't we? :)Wom:
Wish I'd thought of that one when I was writing the post.

I agree - but can we keep Dennis Healey please. He's possibly the last politician to have a sense of humour.
Yes to fluffy slippers and fluffy pencil cases. I never trusted a student with a fluffy pencil case.

I lost my tweezers about a week ago. . .

thanks for the reminder to do something about that

sorry forgot to read the post - who is that woman and the bottom one won't play - what am I missing?

Blogger KAZ said...

I had to give up my tweezers at airport security years ago. But I have a spare pair.

Thank you - what a gallant gal you are.
But you still have the Quadruple to go for - Good Luck!

Ziggi 2:
Don't bother.
The woman is now a planet wide celebrity after appearing on a talent show with bushy eyebrows and a big voice. They've gone and disabled the video of the rather hunky Mr Smith the saxophonist.

I'm an outdoors wildlife biologist type from the Northwest Territories of Canada - and I damn near wept at seeing Susan Boyle sing. Okay, I did have a tear in my eye.

She's got IT.

I love the fact she's from Scotland too :-)

Blogger KAZ said...

Me too - and I'm a tough city dweller.
It came to me as a complete surprise.
Many fellow bloggers have been very cynical. It's probably because we can't stand Simon Cowell and the format of the show.

The picture of sue Boyle is a bit scary , she looks a bit like a scaled up version of the Aliens offspring that bursts out of John Hurts guts .

11:53 am  
Blogger KAZ said...

I don't recall that alien having particularly bushy eyebrows - but John Hurt had a healthy pair.

You can convincingly charm and flatter a woman with "Your eyebrows are fabulous" without knowing her name. Other body parts don't work. Eyes? too intimate. Toes? too insane. Anything between neck and metatarsal? too criminal.

Blogger KAZ said...

How interesting - you could write a book on etiquette.
I'm wondering whether this is one of your tried and tested chat up lines.
After eyebrows you progress to nose, elbows, ankles and then ...... she's all yours!

Blogger MJ said...

I'm often complimented on my eyebrows.

I was always under the impression that it was because people can't think of anything nice to say about any of my other bits so they're grasping at straws.

9:42 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Don't be so modest - it doesn't suit you.

9:46 pm  
Blogger MJ said...

Oh, all right then.

*gets tits out*


9:47 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Hmmm - but then again - those eyebrows are very nice.

Blogger Kevin Musgrove said...

shouldn't eyebrows be on the face?

Blogger inkspot said...

Siouxsie Sioux has fantastic eyebrows and can sing a bit. They're mostly on her face.

Kaz, thank god, you are a woman who knows what she likes and explains it. "Do it to me big boy" is hopeless: do what exactly? MJ, are they grasping at straws or pulling them out of your nose?

12:27 am  
Blogger KAZ said...

That is sooo passé!

Fantastic eyebrows which she cosmetically exaggerated. Wonderful woman.
Yes - I find the phrase 'Do it to me big boy' does not bring out the sensitive lover in a chap.

I wouldn't dream of trying to tame the luxuriant caterpillars poised above my peepers! I am as the good Lard made me.

OK I lied..if I didn't do a little manscaping once in a while I would be able to upcomb those suckers well past my hairline. Yeeesh!

I like them :)
