Florida: winning the SEC wars, losing the fashion wars

While we’re on the subject of hair styles, this comes via Slate:

The Iranian Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance banned “un-Islamic” Western hairstyles for men earlier this week—in particular, the ponytail, a spiky gelled hairdo known locally as the “rooster,” and the infamous mullet. When did Westerners start wearing mullets?

First of all, as a card-carrying member of Western civilization, I’d like to go on record as saying that I’m personally offended at being lumped into any categorization that includes mullet-wearers.

But more importantly, how do you lay out a history of the mullet without a single mention of Gator Nation?

That’s just wrong.

In another blow to Gator self-esteem, George Clooney lays down the smack on a second fashionista front:

… Examining other photos, Clooney explained why he was not the man in one particular picture.

“Here, for instance. I don’t smoke and I don’t wear that watch,” Clooney said. Then after a pause he added, “I also don’t wear long jean shorts.”

Feel the contempt!  It’s the “after a pause” that sells it.  It’s just too bad he didn’t use the technical term.

    Well, Clooney was born and raised in Kentucky.

    “Well, Clooney was born and raised in Kentucky.”

    Which is why I could totaly see him pulling off the Kentucky Waterfall, but never the jorts. Agree?

    Here’s to hoping the only thing you have to talk smack about for the next 20 years is fashion.
