Sarah: Because no subject can be visited by too many people.

First of all, I'm sorry I've been so quiet in the past while. I just finished up my semester, and I couldn't handle blogging in addition to my other demands. Ah, who am I kidding? I was too lazy and lacked creativity.

Second of all, I've moved back home and have spent the last few days job hunting. It is really no fun at all. Hire me? Please?

All: Today while driving around, looking for a particular place of business, I made a mullet-siting. I know that far too many jokes have been cracked about mullets, but that is what I find so perplexing. There was a time when mullets were only the dark side of American life; we turned a blind eye and avoided comment. There was also a time when mullets were the best of two haircuts.* Those times have past. Now mullets are a nationwide joke. And yet, they continue to exist. When I saw this be-mulletted man walking down the street, I wondered what his kind thought of their haircuts. Perhaps he's not the stereotypical hick that sports such a hairstyle. If that is the case, does he shun those that give mullets a bad name? Or could someone really be THAT ignorant to what makes them a subject of ridicule? Perhaps he knows that the scrutiny of others is inevitable. By maintaining his mullet, he is drawing attention away from his dated wardrobe, or his bad teeth. Or something. It's a mystery.

* Hey, Lisa, didn't we use to have a Barbie that had a mullet? I'm 85% sure that this is not a figment of my imagination. Her hair was blonde and very curly and short on top, and long and straight on bottom. Or maybe she belonged to a friend. C'mon... Remember??

That's an affirmative (roger roger) on the Barbie with the femullet. Short and curly in the front, and long and straight in the back. She had very light ash blond hair and very dark purply-tan skin.

Maybe it was an ironic mullet. (On the guy, not the Barbie.) For some reason, ironic ugly things are big.

Definitly wasn't ironic. He didn't get the mullet joke, trust me.
