Anyone need a steticist?


Here's a quickie - forwarded to me from the "Efrat Chat" email list:

Wow. There's plenty to comment on here (and feel free to do so) but what made me laugh the most is that the price for waxing is per leg. Come on, is there a very serious market for doing only one?

As for "steticist," I wasn't sure what that was. I googled it, and discovered that although it doesn't seem to be a word in English, about 195 non-native English speakers seem to think it is. I then put my advanced Googler on the job, and the verdict is: maybe they're trying to say
Esthetician?

Have a great weekend, everybody!

Yaffa/Yitz - thanks for stopping by! That's an interesting idea, could be true...

Haha, I reckon it is someone who speaks Hebrew as a first language but also speaks a bit of French or Spanish, and is over-applying the rule that Anglosising French or Spanish words involves simply taking the latin root and adding "ist" or "ity" at the end...
This requires further investigation!

I could comment better if I could stop laughing...

Adam - let me know what you find out!

Bubby - sorry to interfere with your commenting abilities :)

You can also have one armpit done as well, but not one eyebrow?

I like the "size of the hair". Clearly, if you have a huge, puffy 'fro, it's gonna cost you more...

Mirj - impressive translation!

Mrs. S. - clearly :)
