Why we don't use ace bandages for headaches.

NOTE: This entry was originally posted on Feb. 1, 2006. It is being reprinted here at the request of my wonderfully funny friend, The Moodie Foodie.

Perhaps you, like I, have spent many a sleepless night pondering the issue of why we don't use ace bandages for headache relief. It's a question that has plagued mankind for centuries. Or at least since the invention of the ace bandage back in 1932.


Well, I think I have found the answer. We don't use an ace bandage for headache relief because it makes you look like a flaming nut case.

Exhibit A:


That, my friends, is my firstborn child, The Human Q-Tip.

And does anyone else see a resemblance here?

The likeness is uncanny. But, can he sing the pigeon song?

I have two words for you, oh unbeliever in topical headache relief: HEAD ON. Yes, you too can experience complete relief without even swallowing a pill: HEAD ON. Simply wrap around the head 4-5 times and fasten: HEAD ON. Thousands have found the headache remedy that finally works: HEAD ON. Call now for headache relief you can count on: HEAD ON. Only $19.99 plus shipping and handling: HEAD ON.

That was funny the first time you posted it too!
I loved sesame street when I was little, Mom said I love th dance and sing the Pigeon song.

Every time I feel alone
And slightly blue
That's when I begin to think
It's what I'd like to start to do

And though it may not be the kind of thing
That's quite your cup of tea
I recommend you pay attention
To the little dance you're gonna see

Doin' the (coo, coo) pigeon
Doin' the (coo, coo) pigeon
Dancing a little smidgeon of
The kind of ballet
Sweeps me away

Doin' the (coo, coo) pigeon
Doin' the (coo, coo) pigeon
People may smile but
I don't mind
They'll never understand
The kind of fun I find

Doin' the (coo, coo) pigeon
Doin' the (coo, coo) pigeon
Doin' the (coo, coo) pigeon everyday
People may smile, but
I don't mind!
They'll never understand
The kind of fun I find

Doin' the (coo, coo) pigeon
Doin' the (coo, coo) pigeon
Doin' the (coo, coo) pigeon everyday

Have a great day!

Yay! I'm feeling all special up in here...I can't believe you reprinted that one just 'cause I mentioned it. Shucks!

Love it. Love it. Love it.

So I just found your blog yesterday and I've been reading back through the archives. Anyhow, a couple of years ago, my husband and I and our 4 children under 2 were on a long drive home from somewhere and I had an awful migraine. The "Kill me now" kind. Out of desperation, I put on one of the kids' swimmy diapers... yes, on my head. And it felt sooooo much better. So now I do that whenever I have a headache. And if I tell my husband that I have a headache, my 4 year old offers to get me a pull-up :). Just thought I'd share that- in case you're ever out of ace bandages :).
