Sometimes You Just Can’t Win

The last name “Mullenweg” has elicited various schoolyard permutations over the years, but by far the most enduring has been “Mulletwig,” presumably because mullets are so entertaining. Therefore it is with great trepidation that I point to, “Business in the front, party in the back!” 🙂

It’s worth outlining how I came across this: Email → Politech posting“It’s the Economics, stupid” post on spam whitelist → scroll down to Hairy SituationOriginal Mullet Wig.

  1. hey, Cody got his own domain! neat!

    i think mullets are one of the ugliest haircuts on the planet. Billy Ray Cyrus had quite a party in the back… thank god he cut it! they’re just as ugly as what the lead singer in the Flock of Seagulls was sporting.

    “and i ran… i ran so far away…”

  2. Gee, I got stuck with “Mule Wedgie” through to ramblings of a drunk and forgetful acquiantence. I still hear about that one.
    Also I have a slight correction for Kathy: the lead singer of A Flock of Seagulls did not have a mullet, but something of his own creation. You see, Mike Score was a hairdresser before he started that band, and he thought he would set a trend. We just thought he looked stupid.
    On the other hand, there was a time there where George Michael really had a mullet.

    Gotta boogie on in to work. Love, C

  3. oh, i never said that the lead singer of Flock of Seagulls had a mullet – but whatever he created, was just as ugly! LOL 😀 maybe it was the mullet, the next generation!

  4. Oh my gosh…I just went to the site, and it was hilarious! The guy that was wearing The Landscaper (a.k.a. the Ape Drape) looks like Peter Gabriel from the side…which is just bizarre.
    Matt, I think were going to have to get some of the t-shirts. 🙂
    I don’t recall Matthew ever having a mullet, and I can assure you I have known him since the day he was born at an unGodly hour of the morning, and I was still forced to go to school after being up all night…oops! Sorry. Still bitter…
    Anyway, as a kid, he always had what I called “Floppy British Hair” a la Ioan Gruffudd (lets see if I can manage a link…). Love, C

  5. Matt, I would like to point out that not only did I manage a link, but….well, I can’t think of anything else to say. We should still celebrate!
    For those of you that don’t know me, my poor belaguered brother has been trying to teach me the simplest of codes for ages, but since it’s in fits and spurts (over email or on three minute phone conversations), I can’t get it!!!! Hence, he should be real proud of me getting a link right ;-P

  6. Well, when you’re rich and famous, you can hire me to carefully tousle your hair four times a day. I’ll even give you a discount on my salary if you move to Austin.
    As for me, I have anime hair when I wake up. It sticks out in impossible direction with an impossible amount of height. It’s really bizarre.

  7. My amusement of the day yesterday? (Well, besides dragging people to see The Red Button.) You can listen to “Mullet Rock” on I love Rhapsody!
