The curious pursuit of vertical hair

Friday afternoon I was in the grocery store parking lot and I saw a kid walking with his mom. He looked about 10 or 11 years old.
That, in itself, wasn't strange.
What I found odd was the fact that the kid had a mohawk.
A real, honest-to-goodness, poking-straight-up for at least 2 inches, jet black mohawk.
Is this a common thing amongst the children of today?

I Googled for pictures of mohawks, and found the following oddities.
What would be REALLY cool is if they did the same thing to their armpit hair.
I guess if you put on enough deodorant, you could slick it into any shape you wanted.

Alas, with my being follicly challenged above the altitude of 5 feet above foot level, I am only able to do the mowhawk appearance on my butt cheeks.

Does that count?

Later Y'all.

Meloncutter: It only counts if you post pictures of it on your blog.
Be sure to warn us beforehand.

I saw a teenager with a black mohawk yesterday. Think they are related?

Janna said...

Whall: So gardeners wear grow-hawks,
Deer wear doe-hawks,
Bakers wear dough-hawks,
and bald guys wear no-hawks?

GigglePixie: Very!

Lynda: Maybe it's a new cult!

I don't think 'Indigenous American' when I see these people... it must be me.

Janna said...

Bear: So there's hope for us yet? Maybe?
