About an hour ago, we Tweeted a link to our scrunchie poll with a note asking people where they stood on the return of the scrunchie. Within under three minutes, we'd received all three of the responses above. And the resounding scrunchie denials just keep on coming. Even the illustrious Fug Girls weighed in.

Nobody seems to be anywhere near excited about scrunchies, but one Twitterer did offer some sage counsel to anyone who does embrace the trend. "I'm not opposed to the scrunchie, as long as it is used WISELY and IN MODERATION!" she wrote. "Also, be veeery careful with the patterns." Wise words.
