Hat Hair

Boing Boing had a link to this article last week and it's awesome:

Hair is the Hat

The gist of it is this unforgettable picture:

Back in my day, hat hair was an entirely different thing. It was the weird helmet shape your hair would assume after removing a hat you'd been wearing all day. I remember wearing a corduroy baseball hat everyday to high school in the tenth grade (which looked rather elegant over my long flowing mullet). One day my teacher told me to remove it, as some sort of sign of respect for him or something, but I was mortified at the inevitable hat hair I would have underneath, so I told him I was allergic to the classroom's fluorescent lights and that I could provide a doctor's note, if necessary. My lie worked, but then instead of getting mocked by my fellow students for the hat hair, I was mocked for being allergic to light. I made it impossible for myself to be cool in high school.

Ok, Dan, this is the second time in recent memory you have mentioned your mullet.

I think I speak for most of us when I say that you have to post a picture of you with this mullet - I want proof.

I heard Uncle Ray had hat hair; that is back when he had hair.

People weren't impressed that you were able to come up with such a random lie off the cuff?-jeeze, tough crowd. They obviously didn't realize the assest of having a good liar friend.
