Okay, so my sweet friend whom I heart very much just sent me a gross email. It stated that several of the pony tail holders being sold in our fine Country, being manufactured in the country that just stole MANY gold medals with a preschooler on their gymnastics team, are being made from, get this, USED CONDOMS. Talk about recycling. This is just, EWWWW. Especially since I am the queen of holding the pony tail holder between my teeth whilst I brush out their hair......YUCK!!! This is correct according to the Internet police, otherwise known as Snopes.com. So, if you see pony tail holders like the ones below don't buy them, and tell everyone within ear shot why you would NEV-UH purchase them.
