I’ll Have to Mullet Over
Because I am super-cool and have so much going on in my life (JK, last night I ate Ben & Jerry’s and sat with my dog), I have recently been binge-reading Spoiler Free Days, a site run by WHIS commenter marypickford — whom I remember fondly from the heyday of Television Without Pity discussions — and featuring analyses of storylines from an old (better) era of Days. I’ve only seen clips and random episodes of a lot of stuff from the late 80s and early 90s, so to see it presented and discussed in order and in such specificity is really a treat. I recommend checking it out.
I had heard about the character of Emilio, played by Billy Hufsey of Fame (the TV version), uh, fame, and how he was a dope and sang embarrassingly and had a bad mullet. I’d seen pictures of him in what I thought was his full be-mulleted glory. But it turns out those didn’t even scratch the surface of the matter.
Look at this mullet.
How did we, as a society, allow this to be a thing?!
I know man-buns are the subject of much mockery right now — and I think they’re overdone and look good on about 20% of the guys who are actually sporting them — but there is no way we’re going to look back in 20 years and they’ll look THIS ridiculous. Right? Right?!
