Is The World Ready?

December 15, 2006

I haven’t shaved my head. Yet. But a guy wonders. Especially when he realizes that he has a lot less hair than he did ten years ago.

  1. no!


    What I mean to say is, ater careful consideration, I have decided that I am opposed to the idea of your shaving your head. Extremely opposed.

  3. I wish you two would just tell me what you really think! πŸ™‚

  4. With your black belt, you could be a security guy on Jerry Springer.

  5. The world is not ready, but Jerry Springer is. πŸ™‚

  6. I am going to have to vote no one on this one. I do like your shirt in the picture though! πŸ™‚

  7. At least not in winter!

  8. Does this mean you can you target your own alumni donations to your own department?

  9. If you choose to accelerate the aging process by shaving your head, you won’t want to do it halfway. Start wearing your pants pulled up very high. (For that matter, start referring to “pants” as “trousers.”) Be certain they’re golf pants, with loud colors and interesting patterns. Discuss at length your personal journey from bowling to golf as your sport of choice. Give yourself a water injection on the knee every night; you should have a permanent, painful limp very soon. Talk a lot about how nobody will ever be as good as the Beatles. In fact, take up listening to old jazz recordings about which you will be able to recall the musicians who play on every track. Put a tip jar in the front of every classroom in which you teach. The tip jar should have a sign saying “help me pay for Viagraβ„’.” Quote passages from the AARP magazine–incorrectly.

    Talk about “Slattery’s People” having been better than anything now shown on TV. When someone mentions “24,” nod vigorously and say, “Willie Mays’ number. The best ballplayer ever.”

    Perfect an imitation of Dinah Shore, but do NOT wait until it’s requested before you do it in public.

    Use a substantial portion of any social engagement to denounce Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins and http://www.whywontgodheelamputees.com.

    Grow a beard and dye it white. Take the shaving cream off your wish list.

    Forget to bathe.

  10. Yes! I love you with hair and without. In fact, I just love you. πŸ™‚

  11. Aww πŸ™‚

    Wait till you see my new toupee! You’ll love that, too! πŸ˜€

  12. Ahem…

    As someone who does shave his head (and not because I’m balding), AND who has been complimented on it by one of the people above, I would recommend that you give it a shot.

    Like a Junior Mint, it’s quite invigorating!
