Combover: the Conclusion

The combover was patented in 1977. What a gift to mankind.

My apologies, Dear Reader.  I couldn’t do it, so I avoided continuing my fantasy story of exposing Donald Trump’s combover and thereby saving the country.  Oh, I was ready with pictures and a very loose story line.

As promised, I would explore the history of the Combover hairdo; would you believe it’s copyrighted?

Why would a man resort to such a contrived, labor-intensive practice almost forty years after it was an acceptable (but unattractive, even in the ’70s, when there were some bizarre styles goin’ on) hairstyle?

This was the part where I planned to analyze the mindset of a man–a very rich man–who needed to stick with the same look he’d had for decades due to being insecure about his masculinity.  The clever counterpoint would be an eye candy look at hot guys confidently wearing buzz cuts.  Go ahead, ladies, enjoy!

Even an older guy like Sean Connery looks attractive with the bald look.  Get with it, Donald!

But as I write this, the results of the NY Primaries are in, and I sink further into despair and disbelief that anyone in their right mind would support a person like DT. Say it ain’t so.

Conclusion:  There is nothing funny about DT’s rise to power.  I will try to get back into the humor writing habit by returning to everyday silliness, but my heart is heavy.

Thanks for reading, friends.
