What are they?: Pubic wigs to make your down-there hair look full and luscious. And rainbow colored!
Why were they invented?: To disguise the unsightly symptoms of venereal diseases in a pre-penicillin era. So their wearers could continue to have sex and no one would be the wiser about their condition. So, for evil. They were invented for incredible evil.
Why should I care about this?: Because they’re back! The Daily Beast says so! The Internet is a truth teller!
