>Since its inception in October until today, CUSS has counted two victories. CUSS Victory #1 and CUSS Victory #2 occurred early in the Campaign. Both of the victories took place at my gym, and to be honest, CUSS had nothing to do with either. (Conspiracy Against Unshaved Snatch documents the consequences of the second victory. Sigh.) I felt they were encouraging signs of the times, though.

Victories #3 and #4 are pattern breakers, I am happy to report. I was talking to my friend on the phone, and she mentioned that she tried a new place for her regular bikini wax. An hour, burning pelvis, and $60 later, she said she started seriously thinking that I might be on to something. Hurray! To win the Campaign, you need to win the hearts and minds of the people. (My tactic: humorous rants that plant subtle seeds of discontent with the status quo.)

Following victory #3 in rapid order is #4. I was watching TV and overheard the following truism uttered: “I got a wax today. Sorta feels like I slid down a sandpaper banister.” The lines were tossed off by Julia Louis-Dreyfus in an ad for her new TV show, which otherwise looks like drek. Still, I count it as a consciousness-raising incident beamed into the living rooms of other Survivor watchers.

Raise your fist, chuck your razor/wax kit/laser hair sessions, and join the Campaign for Unshaved Snatch!
