Earlier this week we talked about jewellery and ring pops. I would like to briefly stray from that slightly, if I may, and talk about headgear.
Some folks we know always have head adornments.
|Chinese fence Rei Ling likes to wear little plants on her head.|
|And FlyGirl keeps telling us to give her a buzz. Ho ho ho, very funny.|
|Ivan Antenna and his third-eye-scope.|
We don't often wear stuff on our heads. It tends to be more trouble than it's worth. It gets in the way. It can block your sightline. But there have been times in the past when, incredible as it may seem, we all wore stuff on our heads. Our styles all differed, though. I was a hat person.
And there was a period in history when Michael took to wearing ornate hairbands to keep his (mercifully short-lived) mullet under control.
In fact, there was a time when Michael would regularly go out jogging with a couple of Unbelievababes, all wearing hairbands for no apparent reason.
But Clark? He's in a class of his own. But you knew that, didn't you?
Clark went through a phase of head adorning that was unlike anything we'd ever seen. And we are talking about the man that came up with the Wing Ring!
One time he tried to make himself look tougher by wearing a boxing glove on his head.
|Let's not forget his Christmas decorations.|
|And then he bought himself a baby bonnet and wore it everywhere.|
As for me, well, these days the only thing I put on my noggin is shades. Very useful things, shades, and us crimefighters find all sorts of uses for them beyond the usual 'protecting your eyes from the Sun's harmful UV rays'.
