Hair Today


I have never been one for hair-care products and have steadfastly refused offers by salon stylists and the like for mousse, gel, spray and special concoctions that would make me look like a contestant on American Idol or a victim on Survivor Antelope Island.

That has now all changed with the news that a Chicago-area company is putting on the market hair products inspired by their former "I am not a crook" mayor and major sleaze Gov. Rod Blagovevich, pronounced Blasonofabitch by Chicagoans.  This guy was one of the more colorful characters to follow in a long line of slimy Chicago politicians that date back to Al Capone and the mob.  What makes Blago so humorous was his blatant attempt to sell Barack Obama's vacant senate seat when he left Chicago to seek a higher office that would be surrounded by even slimmer politicians in Washington, D.C.

The new hair products inspired by Blago consist of shampoo and conditioner carrying the brand name, "Blago." It's fuckin' Golden.  Referring to his oft quoted, "I've got this thing and it's fuckin' golden," referring to Obama's spot in the Chicago Senate.  Ya gotta love this guy for chutzpa.  His publicist--yes, he has a publicist. I guess all Chicago political crooks have publicists along with lawyers--says he hopes the shampoo "passes the smell test."  Considering Blago is a sham and full of poo this should not be a problem.

I wonder if you actually use this stuff you will walk out of the salon looking like you have a dead muskrat on your head.
