Up, Up, and Away











Right. When does the balloon go up?

If you've lived in, or have driven very fast through the South you will be very well aquainted with these two hairdos. You'd think all the hairdressers who learned to inflict these unspeakable acts on a woman's head would have all died out or retired by now, but nooooo, I saw a helmet-head exactly like blondie over there at the supermarket last month. I have the feeling this model has the same exact hairdo to this day.

I'm starting to suspect the strange popularity of Big Southern Hair is a result of women attempting to hide massive deformed skulls, skulls swollen to ungodly proportions through the overuse of those delightful Southern desserts made from Cool Whip and Jell-O.

I have no explanation for Princess Bed-Head here.

but then again, once you get south of the mason-dixon line you can get sweet tea (not snapple, EW)--the real stuff, super-saturated with sugar while it's boilin hot. god, i love that stuff. caffeine and sugar...ah, nectar of the gods.

and fried chicken. dam yanks can't make fried chicken to save their asses.

so it's a trade-off, like everything else. not that i'd expect you to look at the bright side or anything.

The bigger the hair, the closer to god. I heard k.d. lang say that once a bazillion years ago on some talk show when they asked her why she had short hair.

Isn't there a really old Sonic Youth song with the lyric, "You've got big big hair and everybody's scared"?

Fried chicken, sweet tea, Big Hair, I'm seeing another connection that may just throw my Cool Whip/Jell-O theory right out the window. Where's my lab coat???

I'm feeling the urge to hide my freakishly large head under some Bubble Hair but according to Mr. Ray's diagrams I'd have to whack off an assload of hair to do it.
