When you have long hair, it's more noticeable when you, well... shed. It gets into every nook and cranny of your home. It rolls in tumblehairweeds across the floors when you don't sweep for a long time (not that I would ever let it get that bad. My housekeeper, Florence takes care of those sorts of things).

As long as HAIRBALL is around, we will continue searching for ways to allow man and drain monsters to peacefully coexist.
This has been another production from the Eeeew Broadcasting Department.
