Celebrity Endorsement

Craig and his hair were picked to read the morning announcements for 2 weeks on Wingnut School's closed-circuit TV channel

He took this very seriously, so he'd bring the announcements home each night and practice them endlessly for the next day.

Let me tell you, there are very few things that can drive you crazier than a kid re-reading ad infinitum things like "Band practice is at 12:45 on the north field. The chess club will meet in the library at 2:15. There will be a bake sale to support the 6th grade field trip at 3:00 in front of the cafeteria." Over and over and over again.

Anyway.

This past weekend was the annual Boy Scout popcorn sale in front of Local Grocery. So Craig and his hair were out accosting shoppers, when a tween girl stopped in front of the table.

Craig: "Would you like to buy some popcorn?"

Tween Girl: "Hey! You're that kid on school TV!"

Craig: "Yes I am! Would you like an autographed bag of Scout popcorn?"

Tween Girl: "Yeah! And I love your hair!"


In a few hours he sold $600 worth of popcorn

The power of hair!

Grumpy, I who am hirsute challenged or is it coiffed dysfunctional or simply thinning to shiny has studied the hair thing.
Notice Mitt and Rick Perry (Ken Doll) would be Presidentials and their hair. JFK had the hair, got the girls got the office. Bill Clinton, ditto.

PS That young girl just didn't stop by to buy Popcorn, if you know what I am saying.

There is an air about hair. Do not forger that. The only thing saving the union is the fact that there are more of us than of them.

Ah, the Power of Hair. Hopefully he has some brains (your specality, no?) under that mop or you will be seeing a parade of "bimbettes" through the house.
Congrats of the BS sale, and I suspect there were a few gray-haired g'mas and a few middle-aged ladies admiring the "adorable young man" as well.

Craig has understood the basic wisdom of if you've got it, flaunt it.

I just recently heard the term used for those who are overly concerned about their hair - hairanoid!

Next comes "I need to shave my (4 whiskers at peach fuzz length if you have a magnifying glass) mustache" and your house reeking of Axe and Drakkar Noir. *shudder*

Having seen the price of scout popcorn this year, I'm surprised he sold the stuff to 8 people but that's about all it takes fir $600 worth.

So glad to hear the update on Craig's hair. The absence of any info of late has had me worried. I was afraid it had run off and left him for a solo career. Funny stuff, I love this blog.

he sold $600 worth of popcorn - so did he have a tired hand after signing so many autographs?

This must be how Vince Offer got his start.

It could always be worse. Carson could start running around flaunting his perfect teeth, and then you'd have quite the group of pitchmen.

Gee, I hope you have had "the talk" with Craig and His Hair.

Ohhh he is getting quite popular there.

An autographed bag of popcorn? Redenbacher's got nothing on that kid. And not just because he's dead.

The thing I love about this blog is it can be serious, it can be funny, it can be related to medicine, or completely unrelated. There's something here for everyone.

The hair thing has been cracking me up for weeks now. At least it was put to good use this time.

Beware Grumpy! Craig and his hair are going places...!!!

Ahh hair...does he do the whole head shaking thing every three seconds to get his hair perfectly tossed across his crown? I was certain I would be riddled with doctor bills due to neck pain, but somehow we made it.

That is ever so impressive for a BSA popcorn sale! It must be the hair product as well as the hair.
