I Could Understand If She’d Said Dipstick…

I could also understand it if she were buying a toy made in China. Actually, that would have been pretty funny.


  1. Recently there has been a scare going around the internet about lead in lipstick. That is what this joke is about.

    Fortunately for those of us who use lipstick, the amount of lead is so minuscule is for all intents and purposes, harmless.

  2. Not even all that recent.

  3. I wonder what percentage of the population has no clue what “regular or unleaded” even means. Can you even buy “regular” gas anymore?

  4. This is a very female comic. The patron is looking for a new lipstick ( obviously) but the saleswoman wants to know if the lipstick will be used for ordinary, everyday wear (regular) or if it is to be used in a man-enticing way (unleaded)

  5. I thought there was a mercury scare, not lead.

    … or is mercury a whole ‘nother scare?

  6. Brien, on January 1st Minnesota will ban mercury from mascara, eye liners and skin-lightening creams. Maybe that is what you are thinking about. But there is a lead in lipstick scare was well

  7. Actually, this reminded me of a comment my husband brought to my attention recently. They were talking on TV about lead in lipstick, and there was a comment about how several lipsticks contained more lead than is allowed in candy. And we were both thinking “There is an acceptable amount of lead to have in candy?!”

  8. when I read it I thought maybe the sales lady meant regular lipstick or the kind that “plumps” your lips. The idea of lead being in lipstick…well that makes more sense.
