Is it a Farrah or a Bertinelli?

Getting bored with mulletspotting? Not just another laugh-at-the-dated-haircut site... Okay, maybe it is, but it's, er, sweeping out into other entertainment phenomena.

As a young boy hitting pubescence in the early 1980's I'll always have a soft spot for the feathered hair thing. I especially liked seeing good ol' Debralee Scott, who looked like most of the teenage girls on my street back then. Simple fact, women's hairstyles age better than men's. What can ya do?

While on the subject of dodgy haircuts...

The entire women's yearbook page was lifted from one of my high school yearbooks, I kid you not.

Creepy.

I thought that style was great. As a long-haired male, I had that style too. No, I don't have a picture, sorry.

Warning: any "mullet-oriented" posts on MetaFilter may be considered viral marketing for a new sitcom on the deservedly-maligned UPN network titled The Mullets. But then, the show will probably be cancelled after three weeks, then you may return to normal mulletting...

John O'Hurley and Loni Anderson as the parents? Well, her hair on WKRP was kind of...

echolalia67, where did you go to school? I could swear that several of the pics were takern from my own high school yearbook! Must be our age I suppose. I even half expected to see a picture of yours truly! Ahh, those were the days...

1.) Had no idea about the wav, I would've warned. Thanks for picking up on that.

2.) Is that an accusation of viral marketing or a parody of viral marketing? Or a parody of an accusation of viral marketing?

In answer to your question, britain, yes.

You know, the fact that mullet-bashing now has its own UPN sitcom ought to be proof that it's no longer cutting-edge hip.[*]

[*] Is the word "hip", thanks to those Williamsburg hipsters[**], actually considered hip now? Because if it is, I need a new adjective, one that implies that while whatever I'm talking about is hip, I myself am probably not.[***] Suggestions?

[**] The Annoying Hipsters, coming this fall on UPN!

[***] I mean, I write fucking footnotes on Metafilter posts, for frick's sake. That's about as hip as a (thinks...) K-car? PTL collectable plate? Guy who tries to think of some pop-cult phenomenon so fundamentally, intrinsically uncool it will never in a million years even be appreciated as kitsch? And then *fails*?[****]

[****] Yeah, when the not-even-remotely-cool-ever revival hits, I am so gonna be there.
