The Mullet is Making a Comeback

mullet

Well, business in front when you have a SHIRT on.

The mullet goes back to the 60s. But that nascent coiff wasn’t the x-treme Kentucky Waterfall the mullet (d)evolved into. No, the Tennessee Tophat, Ape Drape, Missouri Compromise, Camaro Cut, Louisiana PurchaseSho-long, Mississippi Mudflap, or what we in Vermont like to call the Canadian Passport reached its perfected plumage potential — fueled for take-off by Bono and MacGyver and adapted by NASCAR trendsters into the sooperhot, pants-dropping fem-mullet — in the 1980s. When fashion did things it had never done before and hopefully will never do again. Business in the front, party in the back…right on.

As People of Walmart have proven, the mullet is making a comeback.

  1. business in the front, party in the back…you are hilarious 🙂

    • Can’t take credit for that, it’s from “Joe Dirt ” (or whoemver its screenwriter ripped it off of), one of America’s finer cinematic products. Did you have mullets across the pond? Are they making a comeback?

      • They did have them – in the 70’s? But maybe in certain circles they never went away… I saw a few going strong in Sabah too 🙂

  2. One of this season’s Amazing Race contestants features the iconic Poodle Mullet. Gaze upon it with wonder and delight.

  3. Hey Ann, I wanted to let you know I nominated you for a “Best Moment” Award. I hope you don’t mind. Please click here for more info: http://joannafunk.wordpress.com/2013/04/20/a-best-moment-award-and-named-in-an-outstanding-blogger-list/

    • Wow, I feel like a starlet who just got the call from the Academy. Where’s my stylist? My majordomo? My shrink?! Oh wait, we don’t have those in rural America. But what better name of an award to get nominated for than “Best Moment,” I ask? Coming from you, it’s a real honor. Thank you, Joanna, for this here particular best moment.
