Mulletpalooza

The house across the street is getting a new roof. So, the busy bees are busy being a bit annoying. Ah well, the price of progress.

I'm pretty sure the worksite is the centerpiece of some mullet convention. Without spending any time trying, I've already spotted four mullets of various designs. So, the count as of noon is: Mullets - 4, Ass cracks - 2, Smoke breaks - 43.

It's promising to be an entertaining day.

***Flash update***

The fire department just rolled two engines, a paramedic truck, and the chief's truck. The newspaper guy in me wanted to rush out with a camera and follow them.

Whoah...another siren.

Must be a structure fire. What I would give for a scanner right now.

***Flash update 2***

The roofers have broken for lunch. I don't think they're the cause of the fire.

I'm assuming that you saw mostly MALE mullets. It's the elusive FEMALE mullet that really catches my eye. I do love the feathered long-and-short-combination coiffures preferred by the very classy ladies who sport hairband t-shirts and carry duffel bags courtesy of Marlboro Miles....

I don't understand exactly the tie between Mullets and cigarettes...But since I'm a smoker myself, I'm constantly checking my head for signs of an impending "business in the front, party in the back" hairstyle. I fear that it may just show up one day without warning. And then I'll look down and catch myself wearing a Whitesnake T-shirt.

Alas...no female mullets today. We have them running around this town though. No, today's crowning glory - so to speak - was the legendary baseball cap mullet (short everywhere but the very back that isn't covered by the cap).

I'm guessing that you're going to turn out okay...although Whitesnake t-shirts are pretty awesome.

Here I go again on my oooooown... going down the only roooooad I've ever knooooooo-ooown....

Sorry. Whitesnake moment. I'm better now.

Now, where was I ? Uh, yeah... I believe the female mullet is referred to as a "mullette".

As you were.

and I know what it meeeeeee-eeans... to walk along the lonely street of dreeeeeee-eams......

Bits - If you did that in the shower, you would have one more 'yes' on your list. I'm just sayin'.

K said...

You'll notice that I admitted to no singing of any kind - none in the shower, no karaoke, nada. I will only type-sing...

PS - can't believe you ignored the naked photo question. I had to email them to Nilo as proof ;o)

Laura said...

A more difficult assessment would be the type of mullets... were they kentucky waterfalls or a little less drastic?

Check out Mullet.com for a laugh...

What we all really want to know is:

How many ball scrtahings os far?

How many spitting incidents?

How many "move that fucking thing"s

Shawn said...

Bits - What are ya trying to do. give me a heart attack?!? You have my email address...prove away! ;o)

L - There's obviously much I need to learn about mullets.

Pnyc - None of the above that I saw. I did get to catch 2 cans of beer being cracked while the scrubs cleaned up at the end of the day though.

Holy hannah, I'm laughing out loud. Mullet Mania in Wisconsin. YES!!!

I once went to a wedding where the mother of the grrom had a "mullette". She had salt & pepper hair, spiky on top, with a cascade of spiral curls all the way down her back. Like they Crystal Gayle of mullets.

Miranda said...

Well, at least the number of mullets isn't bigger than the number of smoke breaks yet ;)

Shawn said...

Kate - That's just wrong. It should be the bride's day and she should be the center of attention, but who can compete with a salt and pepper mullette? Sad...so very sad...

M - Indeed...the mullets are the interesting viewing for sure. Much more entertaining than the smoke breaks... But the mullets on smoke breaks...pricelss.
