This hairdo is, quite possibly, the worst of the worst. Popular in trailer parks and dilapidated wooden shacks across the country, it involves a shortly cropped top and thick locks that trail behind. This rather distinctive look has resulted in the famous motto: “Business at the front, party in the back”, but what this fails to mention is that said party usually involves a bunch of drunken rednecks sticking dynamite into tree stumps and accidentally blowing their hands off in the process.
Famous people known to have had mullets include:
– David Bowie
– Chuck Norris
– Captain Planet
– Hulk Hogan
– Billy Ray Cyrus
– Superman (1993-1995)
The oldest known mullet, however, dates as far back as 42 B.C. The Roman Emperor Tiberius, generally considered to be one of the worst rulers in history, can be seen sporting one with great flowing locks on silver coins during his reign. An extensive examination of written accounts from the time period reveal that he adored his mullets, and may have been on the Roman equivalent of methamphetimines (it would certainly explain his paranoia). Truly, it is the hairstyle of decadent kings.
