History of the Mullet (Part 1)
O.k. I'm giving B-Cack's 'lil sister some blog time for 2 reasons. One, because she has a things for mullets, and two, I live in the south, so mullets are more than just a hair style, they're a lifestyle. Give it a read and leave her a comment to let her know how she's doing. I f you like it I'll post some more of her mullet history.
The Mullet is considered to be the only haircut to originate within the United States. Most speculate that the mullet trend began in the late 1970’s in the backwoods of the South and the rolling plains of the Midwest, but this, in fact, is not true. The Mullet has a rich and multicultural history that is over 3000 years old.
The mullet actually dates back to 1100 B.C. in ancient Greece. This is not at all surprising, and in reality, explains why the Ancient Greeks acted the way they did. The Trojan War was fought over a woman; a prime example of the ancient Greeks being red-neck white trash. This also explains why the Greeks were very much inbred. It is the way of the Mullet to swim in the shallow end of the gene pool. Many important Greeks had mullets, including Socrates and Homer. Socrates is most known for his unique philosophy, but he should be recognized for his rocking mullet and accompanying mullet lifestyle. After “thinking hard” for several years while his wife worked in the town square weaving, it was found that he never wrote anything down. Not a single word. Not one! His friend Plato claims that he came up with fascinating ideas, but this cannot be proven. Most likely, Socrates just sat around all day, combing his mullet. Socrates even went out in true mullet fashion. He drank poison hemlock, probably mistaken for Ouzo, and died a few hours later. Homer, although blind, had an enormous mullet. Whether he knew he had one or not, Homer tried extremely hard to live the life of the bi-leveled. He failed miserably, and wrote poetry instead. This would be a disgrace to any Mulleted folk, and Homer knew this. He never showed anyone his work, and all of his manuscripts were found after his death. The fall of Greece invariably caused the fall of the mullet temporarily, but unlike Greece the mullet had a rebirth many years later.
