The Wig Is Loose!

Donald Trump’s iconic and oft-lampooned toupee has tired of being a public spectacle and has fled the limelight. It was last seen hiding at the Posada Amazonas lodge in Peru’s Tambopata National Reserve.

Trump’s Wig Has Gone Rogue!

A recovery team tried to apprehend the wayward hairpiece but found out the hard way that its fluffy exterior concealed a set of poison spines that inflicted excruciating pain, rashes, blisters, inflammation, and breathing difficulties among the hapless team members.

All the while, as the recovery team retreated in agonized disarray, it was heard muttering, “You’re fired! They’re fired! Everyone’s fired!”

NOTE: This is actually a megalopygid moth caterpillar from Peru. It’s the larva of one of the Flannel Moths. It was, however, photographed at the Posada Amazonas lodge in Peru’s Tambopata National Reserve and it does have concealed poisonous spines that can inflict excruciating pain, as well as: rashes, blisters, inflammation, and breathing difficulties in people who are allergic to its venom.
