I have long hair which during the week I wear in a pony tail (is 38 middle age ?). The pony tail is the weekday version of my weekend persona:

Spiderman's bastard kid was having a bad hair day trying to climb the brickwork on the Hornet's hideaway.

Re: Middle-aged men with ponytails

There's an amazing collection of mullets on http://nowthatsnifty.blogspot.com/20...t-mullets.html

But PaddyG, where around Fribourg can one find and see this mullet conglomerate? Is your office open to visitors?

Are you trying to tell us that you wouldn't wear volcano stylized earrings Begga? I'll have to trash that present I've just wrapped for you. Bugger!

I perhaps would, depends on the style (I have a necklace made of lava rocks).
But I wouldn't be coughed dead with Aspirin tablets earrings at work!

Epic Fail
That puts "Pony tails" back into perspective.


I'm surprised by the number of posts on here dis'n Mullet cuts instead of Pony tails.

Mullets are arguably the 'eighth wonder of the world'.

The hair cut (and those who wear them) have been, and will continue to be a true source of entertainment for many decades to come.... Thankyou 1980's for the gift you have bestowed upon us all.

Ponytails on men however have no place on this earth.

The fur looks fake.
This raises the question: why would someone have fake hair on his shoulders?

Re: Middle-aged men with ponytails

Most middle aged men with ponytails think that they are 10 years less than their actual age.Young ladies are specially attracted with such people when they see them rear back.They do not surrender but retreat from the age battle ground

Re: Middle-aged men with ponytails

What can one say, its Fribourg, can't get more backwards than that.
Or are you working in some other place where they didn't make it to this century yet?

Seriously, why do you do it? There's half a dozen here at work and it looks truly and utterly ridiculous.
Is it simply to disguise that old friend the Mullet you can't bring yourself to have cut off?
