A Man Combing His Hair in Public

Edd 'Kookie' Byrnes

A man in the men’s room at work this morning pulled out a comb and started combing his hair.

No, it wasn’t Edd “Kookie” Burns.

I mentioned this to a couple of co-workers, neither of whom found it striking, but I haven’t seen a man comb his hair in public since Happy Days went off the air . . .

Japanese and Korean Are the Same Thing

12 Aug 2011 /

My son and I are driving through the neighborhood . . . an Asian kid about 12 years old rides by on a scooter. He lives across the street from us but I almost didn’t recognize him because he’s got his hair lightened and highlighted.

“Typical Japanese,” my son says.

“Japanese kids like to highlight their hair?”

“Yeah,” he says, like it’s an obvious question.

“That kid is Korean, isn’t he?”

“Same thing.”

Aging Boy Bands

29 Jun 2010 /

A Facebook friend posted some photos from the Backstreet Boys concert in L.A. last weekend. Most of the “boys” now have worse hairlines than I do.

Shouldn’t bands named Boys or Kids be forced to retire when they start to go bald?

Or at least change their name from, say, New Kids on the Block to Old Guys on the Porch?

Blago’s Football

Rod Blagojevich

This guy is beyond satire:

[Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich] rarely turns up for work at his official state office in Chicago, former employees say, is unapologetically late to almost everything, and can treat employees with disdain, cursing and erupting in fury for failings as mundane as neglecting to have at hand at all times his preferred black Paul Mitchell hairbrush. He calls the brush “the football,” an allusion to the “nuclear football,” or the bomb codes never to be out of reach of a president.
