Backword Dave links to Boris Johnson’s ‘Blog which, like so much else about him, I’m not sure isn’t a pisstake. The real issue is of course his coif.
It is not so much that it is silly (though the arrangement of the strands is at odds with reality): it is rather that all the wigmaker’s arts have been discarded in a cunning double-bluff designed to communicate to the public a vast untruth.
The British people believe, as do others, “No one would have hair like this by choice!” Millions assume therefore that Johnson’s Hitler-as-a-blond-gonk barnet is natural. I know a fellow baldie when I see one, however.
The charge against Johnson’s hair is that it wilfully misrepresents the state of his scalp to the Commons and to the country. Impeach it now!
Jeremy Paxman, in “The Political Animal” says something like, “… he seems to have put his hair on backwards …”, among other jokes about Johnson’s shambolic apprearance, describing him addressing a constituency meeting. That’s about right.
Oh, and ta for the link.
Well, you can get hair messier than that:
Let’s just hope Homo Neaderthalensis had a less messier private life. 🙂
How original! we had never thought of it in those terms
>seems to have put his hair on backwards…
honestly, I ask you! he’s got to be joking!
I think his inimitable hairstyle is here to stay.

One assumes this is a case of hair-envy?
Oh, and add some border=”0″ into your linked image tags.
“One assumes this is a case of hair-envy?”
‘Twould be envy if the rascal had hair of his own, sir.
“Oh, and add some border=”0â€³ into your linked image tags.”
PooterGeek’s image borders are pleasing and colour co-ordinated to me when I view them with standards-compliant Web browsers. If people prefer proprietary, ugly, and insecure that’s their problem, not mine.
i hate you all
It’s okay, Boris. There’s no need to hide behind an alias. You’re with friends now. We understand the pain, the rage you’re feeling. It’s like the World’s against you, but it isn’t. It really isn’t. Put your wig back on. Hand me the shotgun. It’s all going to be fine. Trust us. We care.
I prefer to stick with a browser that shows up the majority of web-pages correctly. At least until Gbrowser is released.
Is Boris Johnson’s hair naturally blond? Is he an albino?
[…] controversy, “Borislandia,” as it has been dubbed, is clearly nothing more than the Blond Bombshell’s answer to your common or garden bad guy’s island […]
