As I said in my last post, gorgeous blogger Jennine and I went to see the social-media-inspired movie Catfish. There are two notable things about Catfish. First, the trailer that makes the movie look like a scary pseudo-documentary à la The Blair Witch Project is misleading. Second, Yaniv “Nev” Schulman, the handsome star of the movie, has very impressive chest hair.
Nev isn’t hairy all over, like a gorilla or Robin Williams. His luxuriant hair carpet is apparently confined to his chest. It’s like having a shag rug in the living room, but bare floors in the rest of the house. In fact, the hair reminded me of the Far Side cartoon that shows a suburban couple falling victim to the “La Brea Carpets.” I think that Nev’s chest hair should challenge actor Sam Waterston’s eyebrows to a fight.
It would be like Godzilla vs. Mothra.
May the best hair monster win!
UPDATED TO ADD: Great minds think alike! Gorgeous blogger Solo Lisa (who I got to hang with last week) forwarded a Godzilla vs. Mothra cartoon that Savage Chickens posted today.

I miss the Far Side comics.
Now, was the movie worth seeing, in spite of all the criticisms out there?
We liked it. So did MrB.
Okay, I will check it out! Have you seen “Me and You and Everyone We Know”? Cute kids getting in trouble on IM and a bunch of other strange things.
I was given a volume of Far Side comics a few years ago by my parents. They said that along with the Beatles, it would be some of the most important culture education I would receive.
(So far, they were right.)
Also, I’m not sure if I should be impressed or revolted by that serious chest hair.
I LOVE strong eyebrows & I definitely do chest hair…or no chest hair. King Kong or Tarzan?

Love visiting your blog for a good laugh, my bad mood is gone!
Yikes, it’s bad when a waxing would be so traumatic, a transfusion or something might be necessary.
Hey, do you have a favorite jeweler saw? I’m thinking of getting one with a diamond wire blade to reduce rare stone waste.
I avoid doing my own sawing! Good at design, not manufacturing. I’m pretty sure my production folks use only top-of-the-line tools, considering the value of the raw materials they work with.

hahaha, this is fabulous.

My money’s on Nev’s chest hair, Sam’s eyebrows have no chance against all that.
But Sam’s brows know the Constitution inside and out. They could out-argue the chest rug.

So was the movie scary? I hate scary movies, but I love cute Israelis. Oh decisions, decisions!

P.S. – Speaking of Jennine, the anti-spam word is coveted. Haha.
Nope, not scary at all.

Good to know! The ads were very misleading.
you always make me smile!

Mr. Waterston’s eyes and their brows have it, in Miss J’s opinion. She does not care for carpets of the shag.
haha you are so funny. as soon as I read anything about chest hairs, i just KNEW that eyebrows were going to surface in this post:) gina

I have to tell you I know a man who has eyebrows that make Sam’s look like overtweezed pencil lines. I wish I had a picture of these formidable brows. Seriously, they look like living caterpillars with serious hair hanging off them. I can’t look at him without watching them to see if one day they will walk off of his forehead.
Nev’s fur is impressive, but I contend that the “hair” on his chest is really just a hack wighat/merkin, and couldn’t stand up to Waterston’s eyebrows.
In the Hirsute Olympics, Waterston takes the Gold!
I saw a large man with a chest rug of Nev proportions at Raging Waters wearing nothing but swim trunks and a smile. I was traumatized.
I love that this post is about chest hair! 🙂
I just saw a trailer for this movie and I still didnt know what is about – chest hair – got it.
That's Not My Age says
There’s a hairy man who goes to my local swimming pool and I often wonder how long it takes him to dry off the chest hair!
You are so funny. Xxxx
miss cavendish says
I suspect that this film is predictable, in an Armistead Maupin “Night Listener” sort of way . . . I would be happy to be proven wrong! Do tell . . .
That is one glorious “sweater!”
I love chest hair… sean connery as 007 mmm hmmm.
Fickle Wendy! After years of adoring Sam’s brows, you’re willing to throw away your love for a bear rug on a callous youth!
Sam, call me. I am your number 1 fan.
Miss J. says
LOL! He put Austin powers to shame but may i say he is really hot! You should come to Spain Miss wendy where the population of bears to men (you know what I mean) is 4:2!
The younger generation though has discovered the wonders of VEET and has applied it all over their body including their eyebrows. Ratio of Spanish men with well plucked/shaved brows to women? 1:2
oh well, too bad Spain is a 5th world country when it comes to films, I don’t think that one would ever be shown here. 🙁
The chest carpet kills it for me… my vote goes to Sam!
i think nev’s chest hair deserves a nom-ination!
Update: Okay, after seeing the film I can pardon his chest carpet… he seemed like such a sweet guy. He was quite gentle with the crazy lady 🙂
