    Let this be my early April Fools thread, but, have you seen Travolta lately?
    He also reminds me of a Chia Pet at this point. The hair is just weird and actually unique. This is what comes from surrounding yourself with people too intimidated to just guffaw when you come home from your hairdresser.
    If someone can come up with a recent photo to go with this thread it would help explain. Well, not explain but illustrate.


    EDIT:
    And I've just been trumped by reality...
    "Travolta to star in film version of ‘Hairspray’
    Actor will play Edna Turnblad, a role originated on screen by Divine."

    But, of course, that information belongs in the Movie Forum. [​IMG]

    Not sure if these are recent Henry. But, are they what you are looking for?

    Thanks Mike, they're close but they don't really show what I saw a week ago. The hair was very close cropped and uniformly the color of an old penny. Then someone had gone all around the edge with a razor to form an artificial hairline. It looked like a sort of helmet that could be peeled off. And then with his big bloated face under it....Alley Oop.

    You're not crazy Patrick.
    If you had seen the video I observed of Travolta, I think you might agree about the strangeness of his coif.

    Yeah but just wait until he's been Edna-fied... People'll buy tickets alone just to see that (Sort of the Gene Hackman as 'Marilyn Monroe: Drag Queen' effect)!
