Which explains the early demise of Marilyn Monroe
and Jean Harlow, neither one natural blondes. It
also explains why fancy Hollywood HAIR wearers as
well as pop stars, seem a little spacey, as
though theyre listening to something no one
else can hear. Its the alien on their heads.
Proof? Hat hair. HAIR hates
not being able to see. It will take revenge even
if your ears are in danger of falling off in the
cold. HAIRs payback is professionally
documented on drivers licenses and passport
pictures the world over.

like a pet with special conditioners and shampoos,
talking to it when alone and putting its needs
first. I cant go out in this rain. It
will ruin my HAIR! some HAIR groupie
will say -
(Note to self - Surely
Im not alone in figuring this out?
Ill tell the world and others will join me
and well all be safe though bald as science
fiction actors ) URK! ARGHHH! SPLAT!
