The new & improved bad haircut.

My recent hair history: Had a buzz cut. Buzz cut starts growing out. Comes perilously close to becoming a pre-mullet. Desperate measures are called for. Tragic haircut ensues.

La Gringa now bears an eerie resemblance to Dennis the Menace.

Note to self: Crazy Russian barber across from Grand Central Terminal? Bad idea.

What no pics? You just expect us to take you word for it?

I second Travis. We must have pictures.

Hey, if you get a striped red T-shirt and some hair gel, you could always be one half of Calvin and Hobbes. I wonder if anyone's got a magical tiger friend to loan?

I think everyone will agree with Travis. We want pics! How else can we judge just how bad is bad.

shave your hair off. Women always look badass with shaved heads ^_^

1.) There will be no pics.

2.) Shaved heads work great in prison or bad lesbian porn. However, in the corporate world of book publishing? Not so much.

I sympathize. I recently suffered a self-inflicted haircut wound to the head, resulting in some kind of reverse-mullet -- Yep, short and crazy in the back, long in the front. This was accomplished by holding a huge section out as if in a pony tail and just cutting away.
Fortunately as an artist I can get away with rocking this look-- But wouldn't recommend trying this at home.

Would it help if we all started a trend of girls wearing fedoras?

You know, kinda like in the 80s when Duran Duran ... oh wait, those were guys.

Nevermind.

This is a bad thing?

I empathize completely. I have the same issues.

And don't shave the head. I did that a few years ago and my partner nearly had a heart attack. A month of lesbian bed death is a lesson not soon forgotten.

I think you'd look awesome with a shaved head, but I find that when women over 30 do it (like I did at age 39), the very first conclusion others jump to is that you have breast cancer. :(

Sadly, as the folks on The Comics Curmudgeon never tire of lamenting, Dennis never does anything even remotely menacing these days. They should really change the title to "Dennis the Somewhat Annoying" or "Dennis the Misunderstanding of Figures of Speech" or even "Dennis the Cloyingly Naive."

Mullets are making a comeback, they might have never left this neck of the woods. My ex has been getting one for my daughter whenever he takes her to get a hair cut. Luckily she isn't old enough to understand and I am getting pretty good at fixing them.

Hey! We want to see the ex-mullet, Dennis the Menance crazy do.
Post a photo!
Come on...don't be shy

I kind of like the whole shaved head thing. I think there's something sexy about not needing hair to look good and having the balls to do it.

As for self-inflicted haircuts, I give myself one everytime we have a heat wave. Luckily it's been a pretty cool summer.
