My latest Tablet magazine column is here. Read it and I bet your head starts to itch.

By the way, above is a modern lice comb, the LiceMeister. Below is a 5th century AD lice comb.

Astonishing, right? There’s a roundup of other delightful vintage lice comb pix here. DARE you not to scratch.

Really wondering what motivated this post.

I have a series of lice-inspired posts starting with this one: http://rivster.wordpress.com/2007/12/24/dont-let-the-bedbugs-bite/

Lice is really one of the most disgusting things I’ve had to handle as a parent.

Blech!!!!!
