Unnecessary Toupees

Toupees for non bald people.
  [vote for,

Shave your head so you can wear these fashionable and bizarre toupees made especially for people with full heads of hair.

What's the difference between these and a regular toupee? You shave the top of your head but have interesting patterns around the perimeter. Zig zags, wavy line etc to match the toupee. There's a guide that the hair stylist uses to shave the top and sides to fit your "WhooPee".

Can bald people wear them too? No.

       This is bizarre and surreal.   

       Have you been injecting yourself with cleaning products ?   

       While there is something of a precedent in Pharonic Egypt, this is sufficiently odd and disturbing to attract a croissant.
8th of 7, Apr 30 2020

       I shaved my head last week for the first time. I was thinking of shaving some cool patterns into it as it grows back. [+]

       This was pretty common in the 18th century - see gentlemen wearing elaborate wigs.
pocmloc, Apr 30 2020

       Cold be wrong, but I'm pretty sure nobody's ever shaved their hair so they can wear a wig.   

       Maybe some ancient cultures did for some reason but I'd have to do research so we may never know.

       //Cold be wrong, but I'm pretty sure nobody's ever shaved their hair so they can wear a wig.//   

       You are right, you are indeed wrong.
pocmloc, Apr 30 2020

       Example please.   

       And thank you for pointing out that I was right, I usually am.
doctorremulac3, Apr 30 2020

       Example as requested. <link>
8th of 7, Apr 30 2020

       ...and the wig they'd wear after shaving their heads?
doctorremulac3, Apr 30 2020

       ... depended on their status and occupation. The pharoah wore a different wig and/or headdress and beard according to whether (s)he was kinging or priesting or both at any particular time.   

       There's an enormous amount of tomb art (frescoes and carvings), bas-relief on monuments, and statuary of all sizes. Take your pick...
8th of 7, Apr 30 2020

       Anyway this is all irrelevant. The idea is clearly for toupees, not wigs, and for shaving only the top of your head, not the entire head. Therefore it is a RADICALLY new idea WITHOUT previous existence and deserves BUNNAGE [+]
pocmloc, Apr 30 2020

       Thank you pocmloc. You win annotation of the day.
doctorremulac3, Apr 30 2020

       Favouritism... <Bitter mumbling/>   

       We gave this its first bun, you know.
8th of 7, Apr 30 2020

       You win first bun award.
doctorremulac3, Apr 30 2020


       Why does that not help ?
8th of 7, Apr 30 2020

       Because my awards are worthless, that's why I give them out. See the Winkybutt award for reference.
doctorremulac3, Apr 30 2020


       We were hoping that "award" meant we got some kind of certificate, even if it was just clipart printed with a nearly-empty colour inkjet cartridge showing bad tramlining, on cheap paper, in a genuine simulated plastic-effect frame ...   

       Not even that ?
8th of 7, Apr 30 2020

       You're right, I think you deserve more. Your award awaits. See link.

       What's DT?
doctorremulac3, May 01 2020

       The Trumpster.
blissmiss, May 01 2020

       Figures. After all, Pharaohs were considered Living Gods, too ...
8th of 7, May 01 2020

       Oh. Does he wear a toupee? I thought he was doing the combover thing.
doctorremulac3, May 01 2020

       I was kidding. I don't know what the hell that shit is on his head.
blissmiss, May 01 2020

       On it, maybe not; in it, certainly ...
8th of 7, May 01 2020

       Is there a Trump category? If not it's the most commented subject in the HB without its own category. Nothing comes close, I think he makes it into about 3 out of 5 idea postings.   

       He gets a lot of play over here but the English are positively obsessed with him. I think it's a dopamine rush thing or something. They wouldn't engage in it if it didn't feel good so there's got to be something to that.   

       Although I may be wrong, it might be a source of endorphin stimulation. Could be both.   

       My question is this: what happens when he's no longer president? Is he still the center of the universe? I'll be curious to see how that develops. He seems to make people very happy so I'm wondering how that void will be filled.
doctorremulac3, May 02 2020

       Adolf Htler's been dead for 75 years (allegedly) and lots of people still obsess over him, too. He made a lot of people very happy (except for jews, gypsies, Poles, Russians, Norwegians, Belgians, Yugoslavs, Czechs, Greeks, Danes, the Dutch, Ukranians, Americans, Canadians, British, Maltese....)   

       They're both perfect examples of how representative democracy can have an epic fail with disastrous consequences, and why it's such a very bad idea.   

       Also, <link>
8th of 7, May 02 2020

       I think Trump makes his detractors happy, gives them lots to obsess about.

       Sure, why not.

       What's DT? The Trumpster   

       Delirium Tremens is an acceptable synonym.
AusCan531, May 06 2020

       Can this toupee come with a bun? It does now.
AusCan531, May 06 2020

       A little thing that's unreasonably annoying... can you correct the spelling of "unnecessary" in the title? Thanks much.
tatterdemalion, May 06 2020

doctorremulac3, May 06 2020

       That gives me great joy.
tatterdemalion, May 06 2020

       Then my work here is done.
doctorremulac3, May 06 2020

       No, it isn't. You have to mop the floor, wipe and polish your workbench, fill in your hours sheet, and help [Voice] change his adult incontinence garment for a fresh one.   

       Then you're done.
