Hair-cut á la Anders Borg

I’ve made up my mind up to 95 %. It is almost settled. I will grow a “Anders Borg”- hair-cut involving a stylish pony-tail on the back and the rest of the hair plastered down by hair gel. Fresh, 90s, and not that trendy at the moment. Suits me fine. For my non-Swedish readers; Anders Borg is the minister of finance (Secretary of the Treasury) in Sweden. He is a ponytarian since way back and also wear a golden ring in his right ear lobe. Quite hip, don’t you agree? 🙂

The blog Comic Activity describes the hairdo as follows:

The Pony Tail (scientific name “hairus infestus“)
Some believe that having a pony tail and being a guy means that you are smarter than everyone else and are way more sophisticated. Truth of the matter is that you don’t have time for a barber as you strive to reach a level 80 Orc on Warcraft. To people with pony tails, there is no other lifestyle. The tail embodies their entire intelligence and without it they would just be another autograph seeking ebayer at comic-con. To these people, the only time that it will ever get cut or trimmed is when a few strands catch fire as they peer in to make sure their toaster strudel isn’t burning.
Pros: The ability to hide magic the gathering cards in their hair for easy cheating. An uncanny ability to be perceived as the smartest person in the room. If a team of engineers are working on a cure for AIDS and the only guy with the pony tail suggests Kool-Aid, the FDA will have a pack of Great-Bluedini waiting on their desk the next morning.
Cons: A kryptonite-like weakness to humidity. Also known to have bad rash outbreaks when listening to any music besides The Grateful Dead and Phish.
Common Illness: Many ponytarians have an illness commonly referred to as “Elven Bloomitis.” Common symptoms include letting strands of hair loose in the front and a misconception that they look like this:

Any feedback on the issue is warmly welcomed …
