Balling


I can’t grow a beard, mustache, sideburns or a hairy chest.
I don’t have hair in a lot of places but I do where it counts, on the top of my head. I’ve been blessed with a head full of hair. Haha. That being said I’ve always had a situation with my hair. It seems that my blessing is also my curse. Almost as far back as I have photographs one thing is a constant... I'm having a bad hair day.

I know I look like a dork. I’ve embraced it. I love my hair. I love how it can bring a nice smile to someone’s face. I’ve had my hair short, fuzzy, puffy, long, really long & get a friggin haircut long and the outcome is always the same.

Interesting Hair = Interesting Man
Look at men of achievement like Albert Einstein, Bill Gates, Donald Trump and Richard Simons. They all have very interesting hair.

Share your bad hair day pics.

Humby’s hair tips and facts
Here is a quick list of random thoughts and observations.
  1. I was born in the 70’s, when being hairy was cool.
  2. Conan O'Brien’s hair is a personal hero of mine.
  3. Best hair product: Paul Mitchell Dry hair Wax ($20) I’ll stay in your hair after you wash it & makes you look like a 50's Greaser.
  4. Best hair shampoo is soap.
  5. When I was 10, I spent 2 hours getting a haircut and it still looked the same.
  6. I frequently offer balding men the opportunity to run their fingers through my hair so they can remember what it was like.
  7. Weirdest hairdo: I was 17. I had a shaved head with my bangs so long it looked like a flat mohawk. The only picture proof I had was on my license and it was confiscated when I got a new one.
  8. Luckily I've never needed Rogaine (I wonder if it works for facial hair)
  9. If you own scissors, I’ll let you cut my hair.
  10. I expect to have hair for my grandchildren to enjoy.
My hair is like the Three Stooges
When I think of my hair I think of Moe, Larry Curly & Shemp. I refer to my hair's state by their names.


Moe, Curly, Larry & Shemp

When I have it long, but not over the top, I'm Moe. When it's long I use hair wax and slick it back, that's the Shemp Stage (my current state). When it gets really long and crazy, that's Larry. The Larry state usually last the longest and it drives me crazy. So much so I go immediately and pull out the hair clippers. 10 minutes later boom! I'm at Curly. So and so the merry go round goes.

Moral of this story, I love my hair.

I can`t decide if I should go with May West right off the bat. Probably not. I`ll stick with one of my daughters` favorite responses, wow. I am frightened by the thought of doing a search in the abyss know as the world wide web and using the two words "bad hair." I shutter to think the nasty, icky things it would return. This, This Issue right here, this is life. A tribute to one persons complete and total acceptance of the fact that "bad hair" doesn`t mean "bad person." Come, join in the celebration. Send him your bad hair day pics. I`m sending one of a very famous person. It`s really bad hair, on a famous female who does not like to be caught on camera, except when being directed, much less caught on camera with really bad hair. Look for the first release of a `zine` called, "RockOrphanage." We can figure out some silly way to promote it if you want. Let me know. Great Piece, Carry on mate. bruce bizzleski

Bless us that have naturally wavy/curly hair. The Kings and Queens of frizz ~ yeah! (Disclaimer: This comment was in no way meant to offend our straight-haired extended family. It`s just that peeps curly/waves have unique hair-struggles.)

I love it! This one had me laughing to the point of crying: `#6 I frequently offer balding men the opportunity to run their fingers through my hair so they can remember what it was like.` Don`t know if I have the guts to scan a picture of my big 80`s permed hair from high school though..ugh....

I couldn`t find the good pictures, but here`s one of my fro` days. When I brush my hair out it gets really big. Picture Diana Ross.

I now feel fortunate to have managable hair...and cannot stop laughing. That Zine cover is killing me!!!

Ali - Dec 14 2008 8:24 PM
Oh my god, LMAO!!!!! Lol!! This is hillarious!! I`ve had this same problem my whole life. I have some horror stories to tell. Whenever I go to get my hair cut, the hair dresser gets scared. I gotta find some of my fro` pictures. Stay tuned...
