80's Corner


What's the one thing that most people remember about the 80's? My guess would be the Mullet. It took the U.S. by storm, lasted about 5 years or so, and now is about as popular has the Hitler mustache ... that is, of course, unless you are a huge hockey fan ... or a country music buff (sounds to me like the mullet either never died here, or never fully went away ... like an annoying cock-roach colony).

I sported a mullet of sorts in the late 1980's ... Sadly (or not), I was never able to don a full mullet, because my hair was far too curly - not a good thing when it comes to mullet-sporting.

The classic tag-line of the mullet was "Business in the front, party in the back." It went well with acid-washed jeans and sneakers without shoelaces.

I love seeing people that still have mullets. It makes me laugh.

Ah the mullet...and parachute pants...and Members Only jackets, and shoulder pads. God, I'm glad the 80s are over.

In the 80s my motto was "the bigger the hair, the closer to God."

On second thought, that might still be my motto.

I used to rock the mullet - unfortunately there is photo evidence to prove it!!!
