Quarantine Hair Doesn't Care

Post by Ice Cream Jonsey » Sun May 24, 2020 10:41 pm

I will have a haircut on June 4th. My previous haircut was in February. This is my longest pause in haircuts since the first one.

I'll be posting a photo before I go in and I encourage all of you to post your quarantine haircuts.

He's going to a barber. If he was doing it himself he'd have done it already

Probably if you looked like me.

Remember, Retro said, when I die, the mortuary can't even take me for cremation, as my worthless carcass contaminates toxic waste. If he's not angry at me, it's an unreasonable facsimile thereof, and I'd hate to see what real anger looked like.

The only way I can adequately express my sadness with your brazen and purposely dangerous behavior, is to watch 28 Days Later on repeat for the entire month of June.

Much like James Joyce, my wordage is all over the hood while I'm crafting rhymes and phrases like Benjamin gets a spot on the 100 billa.

No, I simply meant it as an interesting way to say that you're so fat, your weight will be over the operating limits of the conveyor the mortuary uses, so you'll have to be cut in half with a chainsaw on a filthy, blood soaked concrete floor. You'll saunter on forth to be a gigantic pain in the ass even in death, as the Morticians try to haul one half of your carcass onto the conveyor, it's discovered that you're so heavy they have to cut you into fourths.

My wife keeps threatening to cut my hair with a Flowbee. We do not own a Flowbee, so I checked eBay. They sell from $50-$200. Looking shaggy and homeless is free so I'mma stick with that for the time being.

Me getting a haircut on June 4th or whatever it is being called "brazen and purposely dangerous behavior" is the height of moon-howling lunacy and I implore you to elucidate upon this line of thinking for the sake of the BBS.

Could we get a group buy going on these T-shirts?

By that I mean I have interacted with fewer than 5 people since March 10th or whatever.

I've taken the quarantine seriously.

I use a mask to post to this BBS.

I - and I cannot stress this enough - deserve this haircut.

Retro, my (self-declared) enemy, you never disappoint. Again, you're very funny, This sort of hatred only comes from the Dark side of the farce.

Tdarcos hasn't sprung for a visit to the barber since this all went down so he should be somewhat on your good side, right?

Whoa! And you had COVID-19.

You got a haircut. And you got the virus.

Maybe this is Retro's point?
