    "Darling, what does that long blond hair coming from that I found on you collar after the party in your lab?"
    "Eh, don't know, eh, something that I work with, eh, a hair from a Yeti perhaps?"
    "Proove it!"

    You've got an iron-clad alibi now in case anyone catches you diddling the cat.
