Daily Weird #34 A hairy situation...

Which is the before?

David Davis aka Fro Dude
David Davis aka Fro Dude

David Davis, better known as “Fro Dude”, was sitting in the barber chair in Stamford, Connecticut, minding his own business when a suspicious character approached. Fro Dude knew this guy was up to no good when he saw the man was wearing a cloak. Cloaks are only worn by bad guys. Fro knew this and jumped into action.

He raised up out of his chair, slashed the bad guy across the back and then ran. Police believed he ran because he knew he shouldn’t have slashed the bad man in the cloak, but I believe he ran to find an appropriate place to change into his super-hero outfit. There are no telephone booths anymore, and he couldn't just go running around slashing people without a cape and underwear placed properly on the outside of his clothing.

Due to the lack of hero gear, Mr. Davis was arrested and brought to jail on charges of assault. The matter would have ended there if not for the untimeliness of this encounter.

It seems that when he ran, his barber was only half way finished with his hair. So, half of his hair was in a braid, and half of his hair was all Einstein-ed out. This made for a really, really, really interesting mug shot. This also made for some pondering on my part.

As I pondered, I thought. It happens that way sometimes. Pondering usually turns in to eating chocolate, but not today. Today there was thought. This thought in particular...Was there anyone else out there who had a mug shot worthy of a Daily Weird? I can be lazy, and today, being a no chocolate day, is no exception. I did a little research and added a few more “lovelies” creating a Daily Weird full of a collection of winning mug shots.

Bikini Guy aka OMG, you poor thing who in the world are you going to call to bail you out???
Bikini Guy aka OMG, you poor thing who in the world are you going to call to bail you out???

First up, we have Marcus. T. Bailey who thought it would be a great idea to sell drugs while getting his hair done. Again, he was hauled away before the barber could finish. These guys really need to start getting their hair done at jail. Do jails have barbers??

Next we have David Jonathan Winkelman. Don’t let the three names confuse you, he wasn’t an assassin. He was just a regular guy who thought a radio station joke that promised a six figure prize to anyone tattooing their call letters onto their own forehead was real. A tattoo and red face later, he realized he had been had. Those dang ol' disc jockeys with their wily ways. Months, maybe years later, with the tattoo still in place, Mr. Winkelman (seriously, that's his name) failed to appear in court for a misdemeanor charge …. and BAM his ugly mug is all over the internet where he cannot hide from his moment of stupidity.

Then there’s “Silver Man” who, although, apparently already in his hero outfit, was still arrested by police. Our men in blue need to start working together with these fighters of crime. This is why people are asking, “Where are all the heroes? Silver heroes in particular." Don't cry Silver Man... we believe in you!

Last, but certainly not least, I found this gentleman. I did not find his name, and am not sure I would repeat it to you if I did. Poor thing. Can you imagine? His girlfriend probably told him he’d get lucky if he dressed up like this for her. He did NOT get lucky.(I'm assuming this, but I think I'm pretty safe to do so) The only thing worse than this, is if he would have gotten pulled over and hauled to jail while wearing a Mankini.

So, in conclusion, the moral of our Daily Weird is… wait a second. I never have a moral. This isn’t that kind of hub.

Go. Dress up. Have fun. Wear anything you want, tattoo anywhere you want. Just don't get thrown in jail until your hair cut is finished or you've changed out of that embarrassing binkini! Hey, is that a moral? Dangit.

Can't comment too much on hair my has departed the premises. Once when I did have hair I decided to have a perm. I looked like I had plugged in to a 220 outlet but I wore it a couple of years because there was little maintenance just shower and blow dry and out the door.

Priceless! That is all I could come up with...Sorry it took me so long to get back into the swing of things. Life has been busy here, but I am glad to say that it hasn't been as bad as these poor souls.

I hate having my picture taken due to my bad hair days. Let's just say that naturally curly, dry, long or short hair has a mind of its own when not properly lathered with chemicals to keep it in its place.

Another great hub girl! Can't wait to have time to read more.

I knew it, I knew it. Again with the sides hurting. As soon as I seen the e-mail. Man, oh man are those some embarrassing pictures or what? OMG, are you serious? Is there such a thing as a man-kini? Never mind, I think that I don't even want to know. That's gonna keep me laughing all summer. A man-kini. You've got to be kidding me. I gotta get out more. Although I'm not sure if I want to, if guys are going to be wearing man-kinies.

Thanks

Chuck

Tip- I've been a bit out of it as well. I just finished writing an article for a new magazine and the stress of being published in anything coming out of New York just about did me in! I had to pull a Stan and put the stress puppy on the leash!

This isn't one of my best, but I had to do something! I'm trying to get back into the swing of things too... thank you for dropping by! I'll come visit you soon too! :)

Mentalist- you are so right. I've been trying to find him elsewhere to see what kind of super-hero stuff he's been up to, but no luck.

I hear rumors that he is now Aluminum Man.

Sue - These poor specimens would all win first prize if there were a Mr. Loser contest. Each one is loony to the nth degree. Thanks for sharing their stories. Love your chuckle-producing ruminations.

Did you see the movie, "Bruno?" That was the one that Sasha Baron Cohen did after "Borat." Anyway, in "Bruno" our hero wears the ultimate in abbreviated bright yellow mankinis. Really a sight to see.

Pamela99- I would agree with you.. except for SilverMan. SilverMan is awesome. He's just so shiny!

sueroy333 5 years ago from Indiana Author

Drbj- I remember when doing research for the mankini daily weird that the movie "Borat" was what inspired the "fashion trend" of the mankini. I haven't seen either movie... but Netflix has them on DVD. I think I know what my movie of the week is going to be!

Thanks for the photos. They made me laugh as usual! Great minds think alike. I am also working on a similar hub. Wait for it.... Texas dress codes!

Austin- hmmm, I wonder if Chris's Lemon County real estate hub gave you the idea? I know real estate hubs always make me think of fashion.

I'm looking forward to reading your hub. Please talk about tube tops. They really don't get enough exposure.

Sue,

So, no chocolate day means you write on my hub with Austinstar while I leave notes on her hub about your hub, while my hub goes...

This is way too complicated.

But fun.

Not megabutt fun, just but fun (See Austin's recliner hub, not Stan's recliner hub)

We are all going to get thrown out of school for writing notes, aren't we?

Loved the tattoo guy. Not only is he marked as stupid for life, he had to pay for that!

And enough with the mankini thing. I've hidden it in a box that I've burried in the garden. Yellow was not really my color anyway.

Poorconservative- you always know how to make me smile! Thank you!!

Actually, a mankini is a real thing. I wrote a Daily Weird on it, as it deserved one.. there are even pictures.

It's worth a read! Thanks again for stopping by and making me smile!!!

Thank you for the kind words... a girl can never be told too many times that she's funny!!

ChrisLincoln did indeed inspire my Texas dress code hub. Now if he would only find me some time to finish writing it! I've found a couple of photos and got one text thing written. That was yesterday.

Today was dentist day and work and then I had to watch Wipeout! Stupid human tricks just make me laugh. Now it's after midnight and I have to go night night. See ya'll in the a.m.

Just too funny. I was trying to picture you as you write this stuff. Got to be one funny house.

ChrisL, why did you NOT burn the mankini first? Are you thinking of digging it up someday? Send photos.


ChrisLincoln profile image

ChrisLincoln 5 years ago from Orange (or Lemon...) County, California

Austinstar,

I have a plan.

If I ever dig it up, remembering where I put it and all, then I don't have altzheimers

If I wear it, I am fully certifiable and need to be locked away for my own safety.

If I never find it or wear it, it is proof that I dont have altzheimers and I'm not crazy!

Brilliant or what?

Arb- You should be around my kid for half a day. She cracks me up more than anyone I know. We do laugh a lot. We've been through a lot.. as have so many...and learned that life is sooooo much better when you laugh at it as you go. Even the bad times have funny spots if you know where to look. :O)

You seem like your house is a "happy house" as well!!! (takes one to know one!)

Austin and Chris-- PLAY NICE. :)

PS. My kid just found a "nose picking mynci gnome ballon" on sale at Neopets for only 5,000 dollars. I think we have more at stake here than Chris's sanity and Austin's fashion sense. I think we need to sell the mankini and buy that balloon!!

Chris start digging.. Austin take a road trip and help him please (he so obviously needs it). Let me know when we have the cash. I'll let you each keep the balloon for a month at a time.


ChrisLincoln profile image

ChrisLincoln 5 years ago from Orange (or Lemon...) County, California

Oh no...

The mankini not seeing the light of day is my guarantee of sanity.

It stays buried.

All I have to do is figure out how to get those pesky photo's back of the internet. (And for pity's sake stop Chelsea searching around the internet thingy, she might come across them and need psychological couseling for life. Or new retinas)

Chris- I hadn't thought of what my kid might find. She is now banned from the computer and shovels.

This was a real knee slapper! I think the Halfro might catch on. I had something similar going with my hair when I got up this morning.

sueroy333 5 years ago from Indiana Author

Stan- I think you should consider putting you with your halfro on your avatar just to watch the uproar.

I, myself, may choose to go with the silver body paint, I don't have the nerve to carry off a halfro (or was it a bit-a-braid?). Although, the tattoo did intrigue me. I think you have to have the moron-in-the-headlights look to carry that off, though.

Well not married anyhow:). Haha! I know - I'm holding a grudge about my taxes! But I have heard of some pretty crazy politicians! I'll just leave it at that in case Chelsea is listening:). You tell her hello from her biggest fan in St. Lou:)
