    Default Hairy?

    Hi everyone! I am studying to become a translator and I have a doubt. I do not know how to translate this: "hairy situations: too much, too little & shaving". The article talks about the change of the appearance of the hair after shaving. I realize the double sense that this phrase has, but I do not know how to translate it to keep both senses.

    Hi Pao

    I'd translate it as "situaciones peliagudas", just to play a bit with a pseudo-pun. I've done a few weeks back a posting related to this, but it was all in Spanish: Etimologías

    Cheers.
