Well, would ya? What if it made your hair look as shiny and lustrous as Brooke Shields’ hair circa 1982? The sperm, uh, “facial” recently exploded (sorry, can’t help it) on to the skincare scene with products like SkinScience‘s “Spermine For Professionals”–again, the jokes just write themselves here–and CMEN Beauty Now. We could’ve guessed that next the sticky suspects would end up in our hair. Super-fancy London salon Hari’s is offering the Aberdeen Organic Bull Semen Treatment, and the owner couldn’t be more chuffed, as they say in Jolly Old: “I have been searching for an organic product with a lot of protein because that is what hair is made of and that is what it lacks when it is dry,” says salon owner Hari Salem. “The semen is refrigerated before use and doesn’t smell. It leaves your hair looking wonderfully soft and thick.” He claims he prefers it over more traditional, fatty, protein-enriched products like avocados and truffle oil. Huh. How ’bout that?

Did you know the U.S. exports stuff to Iran? Lots and lots of stuff, in fact. During the time that President Bush has been in office, at least $158 million worth of cigarettes alone were sent there. “Our sanctions are targeted against the regime, not the people,” said Adam Szubin, director of the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, which enforces trade sanctions. Strangely, some of the products that the government doesn’t want the people of Iran to be without include: bull semen ( “The animals we’re working with are genetically superior to those in many parts of the world,” said the company’s marketing manager.); at least $101,000 worth of bras; $175,000 in sculptures; nearly $96,000 worth of cosmetics; $8,900 in perfume; $30,000 in musical instruments and parts; $21,000 in golf carts and/or snowmobiles; and $3,300 in fur clothing.
