Clay Nichols: Welcome to the Lounge, where today we are going to be discussing a crisis that has beset my little neighborhood. So a crisis that's galvanized the community in a way that has the stay-at-home moms surging through the streets, protesting with flaming brands. They are upset, they are getting together and acting to get change, because at our elementary school some kids have head lice. Now, head lice. Brad Powell: Ridiculous, humorous, capitous. Clay Nichols: No, head lice. This is got the ladies of my neighborhood so upset. You can't believe it, you can't send me an email. You want to know why? Because I have got 200 emails from moms at the school upset because their kid may get a bug on their head. Brad Powell: They are not bugs. Clay Nichols: These people are more worried about head lice than they are ebola, global warming and bird flu combined. It is a full on panic. Brad Powell: Well, they are gross, sure, they are gross, but they are not bugs. Clay Nichols: They are not bugs? Brad Powell: No, they are parasites. They live on your head and they suck your blood.

Because then, oh hey, go ahead just delete that visual image from your mind. Brad Powell: Okay. If you did have lice and they bit you, would you feel it? Clay Nichols: Yes. Brad Powell: No, you wouldn't feel it, because they inject some kind of anesthetic into your head when they bite you. Clay Nichols: Okay. Does it kill you is my question, does it kill you? Brad Powell: No. Clay Nichols: Because otherwise why are these parents freaking out so bad about a couple of bugs. Brad Powell: Well, they are gross, I mean they are gross.
