2021's Darwin Award Winner Has Been Crowned

Post by oneh2obabe »

Nobody, and I mean nobody, will beat Gorilla Glue Girl.
It seemed like an easy substitution. After all, both products had the word “spray” on the bottle.

One, though, was hair spray – and TikTok maven Tessica Brown was fresh out of her go-to, Got2b Glued Freeze Spray.

What harm could it do, she thought, to spritz a bit of Gorilla Glue Spray Adhesive onto her head to tamp down her hair for her signature smooth look, out of which a sleek ponytail flowed.

You have to die or become sterile to be a winner, so she doesn't qualify.

You're right, she's not dead. Yet.
Give her time, there's always another challenge.

Missing more than enough gray brain matter gives her a good shot at winning the title before the year is up.

If you didn't see it, she does have a GoFundMe setup to help with the medical costs.

$12,000 raised of a $1,500 ask.

But she has competition:

Look at the bright side, at least when she's crowned, the tiara won't fall off [icon_lol2.gif]

Poor girl did try to get it out, a few famous rappers even tried to help her out, they prolly donated the money
She must have had some buzz on to make that mistake

Well, that didn't take long ... she's planning to sue. Can you see her in front of a judge ... "but, but, but - I figured it would be okay because both cans had 'spray' written on them".
Gorilla Glue girl Tessica Brown has raised more than $13,000 in just one day on GoFundMe as she grapples with getting the adhesive out of her hair.
The fundraiser — started by Brown and a relative and using a photo from her visit to the emergency room — did not detail what she’d use the cash for.

But she allegedly plans to sue over the hair-raising ordeal, as well as fly to California Wednesday when she’s reportedly getting free treatment from Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Obeng to finally free her locks.

You never know, she may have used it as a form of birth control.
Which would do the same thing to her productive organs :135: :biggrin: [icon_lol2.gif]

I think this isolation is warping my mind even more.

And it gets even better:
For some of Brown’s defenders, that warning clearly wasn’t enough. “Your product failed to adequately warn, knowing hair glue in fact exists and many Black women use hair glue as hair adhesive & for this, your company is liable,” lawyer Exavier Pope tweeted at Gorilla Glue, before claiming that “Black people are disproportionately impacted by being injured by products they buy to save money” because of “systemic inequality.”

And the Twitter comments? *bleep*? This is now a race issue?

Here's another good part:
that she usually uses Schwarzkopf’s ‘Got2B Glued’ to finish off her hairdo
Just wait till all the precious little woke SJWs find out that word for word "Schwarzkopf" means "Black head"

The :cuss: is wrong with this world?
