BALD, adj. Destitute of hair from hereditary or accidental causes -never from age.
2009 Update: Having increased albedo and declining influence as a result of excessive exposure to testosterone and rarified exposure to estrogen.
Bald is beautiful. At least if you're Sean Connery or Bruce Willis. For everyone else it just means you need to wear a toque in winter.
Agree with Jenn about Sean and Bruce but I have grown to love shaved heads in both men and women.
In women bald heads are a sign of a warrior who is either going through chemo, supporting a loved one, has apolexia and isn't trying to hide it, or is Sinead O'Connor--in that case nothing I said holds true
I love a bald man.
I like bald men, too. My all time favorite was Yul Brynner.
What exactly were we talking about?
Too much rubbing against the head board
Bald is bad. I am not bold and won't ever be bald. Search my (Jim's Little) blog for my preventative efforts to not be bald.
BALD, adj. Hot-headed. Well, maybe ...
Hm considering there's also Vin Diesel and Jason Statham - okay bald is hot on the right head. (Add a scruffy jaw and helloooooo!) A family friend looks like an egg! Really!! I wonder if they dye him at Easter. Hm...
I'm finding it remarkable that "bald" and "shaved" are being (somewhat) lumped together here. I guess, if you do it to yourself, it's macho. If it just kinda happens, well, that's when the "declining influence" steps in. Or the Rogaine, one.
What about waxed, OC? Kinda poetic, ain't it? Top for one gender; the bottom for the other.
Still giggling at Pia's comment about O'Connor.
Bald is fun only if you are born a man. Women are supposed to have hair on the heads.
(Even Sinead has hair now.)
Jenn, will nobody uphold the humble comb-over?
Haha, Pia. Nothing compares 2 Sinead.
And a lucky one, blogmama.
Baldness, Nessa. As you were.
And the cheese grater, Icy.
Jim, the Willie look is a fine alternative.
Amoeba, I always find sentences that begin "scientists debunk myth..." to be suspicious.
Jenn, is this your uncle the weasel hunter?
You think correctly, Actonbell. Without the umbrella, Niks could change the weather pattern.
Right, Amoeba, which I suspect is why so many choose to choose baldness.
Ironic, huh, Sauerkraut? We don't wax where we think.
Right, Ariel, hair on the heads and teeth around the tongues.
Nakedly obvious, as in a bald-faced lie.
Perhaps I shouldn't have said "nakedly." Is that ribald?
Weirsdo, it's well within the bounds of local standards.
