Southeast Asia, explained

Question of the day: Is the average Malaysian man's leg hair robust enough to pluck out and transplant into his balding scalp?

Thanks to the Malaysia Star, which assigned a reporter to confront this pressing issue head on, we have our answer.

Probably not.

The Malaysian Society for Hair Sciences' president told the outlet that this procedure, now en vogue thanks to a New York Times article, "might not work well with local men because it is only suitable for those who have 'massive, thick hair growth on their legs.""

Sorry, non-hirsute Malay guys. Perhaps you could take a tip from America and buy used hair from India.
