The bump is back.

Get out your rattail combs.

IN THE COMMENTS: Jason notes the real source of this new trend, whom the above-linked NYT piece eclipses. It's:

Meh, I live in Texas, where big hair never goes out of style. In fact, most of the people in that slideshow look like people I'll see at a party tonight.

WV word: wormons - Mormons who serve in the military.

I'd gladly sell my soul and burn in hell for all eternity* if another sort of women's hair styling comes back into fashion. Perhaps "styling" is not the right word; it would be the mere existence of hair that would count.

I'm not holding my breath waiting.

* = which probably is going to happen anyhow

The bump? Oh, you mean the Sarah Palin.

Should be an interesting decade.

jayne_cobb: Screw the bump, tell me when it's alright for men to have chest hair again.

It's okay by me!

Althouse 'bout scared me half to death by leading me to believe the "rat tail" is coming back as well.

a rather nappy type of mullet carefully trimed so that the hair in the middle at the base of the skull forms a single, disturbingly long, strand resembling that of a rat's tail; often spotted on young ratty looking children whose parents don't know any better than to get them a decent haircut

EDH - you forgot "and often braided."

To my priest, lawyer and hairdresser:

You can screw the pooch
and jump the shark
but if you rat out my hair
don't say the roots are dark :(

Bush is gone. No one wants to think about him.

Now, EVERYTHING is Sarah Palin's fault. And you don't think Big Hair is a fault?

She really does better service for bloggers than Elizabeth Taylor ever did for supermarket tabloids. I'd put her on my own blog, if there was any indication she had an interest in 18th century keyboard tunings.

I hope it's ok now. I so want to be stylish again.

It's raining and about 45 degrees. What gorgeous day?

I'm playing World of Warcraft and commenting during the long "rides" between areas when there is nothing to do.

The bump? She pregnant again?

Eh, I know what you mean and I don't miss it. It makes certain husbandly obligations much more pleasant during and after the act, which means wifey gets to enjoy it more frequently and more cheerfully, which redounds back to hubby's immense benefit. Can we compromise on the landing strip or Hitler mustache?

Nothing concentrates and amplifies delectable flavors and aromas like a thick rich thatch.

The landing strip is perhaps slightly less depressing than the Hideous Pedophilic Bald Eagle, but is nonetheless ludicrous and unnatural-looking.

Wow any style story that leads off with Hillary Clinton is cutting edge. Do you read the NYT for its subtle sarcasm and secret messages?

Kirby Olson said...

Women who want to be president should pile their hair up to look like a stovepipe hat. They should also get into a Procrustean stretching machine to get taller, but the hair piled way up will help them with their size issues, too.

It's a year into the New Camelot and everyone is copying the styles of America's First Lady who, unexpectedly, does not live in the White House.

Leaving Palin out of the gallery is proof of left-wing bias at the NYT.

This is because NO one wants to copy the style of Michelle O. Sumo wrestler belts tied just under the boobs. Wrinkled shorts with camel toe. Sweaters 3 sizes to small. Your basic Salvation Army sale bin fashion sense, just really isn't that inspiring.

Irene said...

"Get out your rattail combs."

Or, in Hillary's case, get out your wig.

(I would know.)

Wait until the Supreme Court nominee comes to her hearing with a Farrah Fawcett hairstyle. Female stylishness is once more a part of popular culture.Thanks Sarah

Ay, yi yi with the "nu-cu-lar." just because GWB pronounced it like that doesn't mean she should.

Very superficial subject.
But then, as a balding man, perhaps I am biased.
"So then he will be bald?"
"Yes."
