Simpsons Joke Origins: Gee, Your Lip Looks Hairless

In the Simpsons’ Season 2 episode “Principal Charming,” Marge’s sister Patty is seen getting ready to go on her first date in 25 years by applying a chemical depilatory product called “Gee, Your Lip Looks Hairless.”

That’s funny in itself, but because I’m not a million years old, I didn’t know it was a reference to a real product. A chance encounter with an image on the internet informed me that there was, in fact, a scented shampoo called “Gee, Your Hair Smells Terrific!” produced in the 1970s and 1980s.

It looks like you can still order it online if you want your classmates to creep on you at the library.
