(source) - An Oklahoma City man was arrested Tuesday after police say they caught him washing his hair with mayonnaise in a public fountain. Several passersby complained about a man causing a disturbance at a spot known as the Bricktown fountain, KFOR.com reports. An officer said Jorge Arturo Perez, 23, was soaking wet and breathing heavily, according to NewsOK.com. Perez allegedly told police that he was bathing and was using mayonnaise as shampoo, TulsaWorld.com reports. A local ordinance prohibits bathing in public fountains. Perez was released on Wednesday. HuffPost contacted the Oklahoma City Police to find out if the mayonnaise was collected as evidence, but officials have not responded.
Uh, head lice Oklahoma City. Ever heard of it? Don't answer that question, it's rhetorical. Of course you have. So you should understand why, when Jorge Perez discovered disgusting bugs crawling around on his head, he decided to act quickly by grabbing some mayo and running to the closest source of water he could find. There aren't many tried and true ways to get rid of lice, but I can tell you from personal experience that a mayo hair wash is one of them.
"Well he could've waited until he got home to a real shower." Uh no he couldn't dummy. Use your brain for once. Is there any person in the world more ostracized by society than people with head lice? It's up there with ebola in terms of quarantine status. I don't care how old or young the person is, if I hear you have head lice then I immediately find you a disgusting and contaminated human being. I don't care if you're even in my own family. I will do everything I can to keep you away from me. The dread of experiencing that type of isolation requires immediate action, and Jorge took it. And I for one am applauding the effort. Meanwhile, you idiots are arresting him and about to have a giant lice outbreak in jail, so, you know, have fun with that.
P.S. Jorge Perez is such a curveball name for this guy. I would've gone with something more Jersey Shore-esque.
