Mullet Watch 2012

Thanks to one of my stealthy field reporters for risking it all in taking this photo of a father/son mullet team- a first for Loripalooza. This “business in the front- party in the back” comes from Columbia, TN.

Can I get a, “Yeehaw!”

Mullet Watch 2012

Sound the banjos! I’m happy to report that the mullet is alive and well after being spotted outside of a Lowe’s in Alabama. Who would’ve guessed? The subject, seen here, is most likely picking up supplies for his in-home meth lab.

Thanks to my field reporter, Kerry for the amazing footage.

DinoTrek and Day Tripping at the Nashville Zoo

Today our whole family took a trip to the Nashville Zoo, where every time we go I’m reminded of how uncomfortable it is to walk through the gate at the same time as an obnoxious, out-of-state family. Without a doubt, you always end up walking alongside them the WHOLE TIME. Here’s a thought. It’s flip-flop weather, so cut your damn toenails. If I see one more set of toenails scraping the cement I will have to start a charity called, Pennies for Pedicures.

On a positive note, the zoo has a new exhibit called, DinoTrek and I highly recommend it. It was much more lifelike than I imagined. You can hear how much Luke enjoyed it in the video below. I decided before we went into the exhibit, that if we are teaching our son to believe in Santa and the Tooth Fairy, then why can’t we teach him that these dinosaurs are real? So I told him they were. In hindsight, I regret that.

I had no idea it would be so scary…

…but it was. 

And, what would a visit to the Nashville Zoo be without at least one mullet sighting? This is the first one I’ve seen in 2012, but something tells me I’m not looking hard enough.

Ay caramba!

Mullet Watch 2011- It’s back, baby!

I was beginning to think the mullet was extinct until my friend, Mary Beth, sent me this photo taken on a tour bus in Savannah, Georgia. It is great to see that the mullet is alive, well, and apparently thriving while on vacation. Thank you, Mary Beth. You have renewed my faith in the American spirit.

Mullet Watch 2010 (with a little Emmagination)

This mullet was spotted in Hoover, AL by a stealthy photographer named Emma Nathews. Armed with only her camera and a Barnes and Noble membership card, she parted a sea of books and took advantage of this photo op. Thank you, Emma!

Also worth noting, this fella was NOT looking at picture books. I know, I was shocked too.

(When Emma isn’t stalking her next victim, she’s taking amazing and creative photos. Click HERE to see her work.)

“Business in front, party in the back.”

I’m not usually one to jump on band wagons or beat the proverbial horse, but this was a little too easy to pass up. It seems that “Big” Ben Roethlisberger’s business to party ratio is a little off balance, but we already knew that didn’t we?

Mullet Watch 2010

It’s been quite some time since my last “Mullet Watch” entry and I had begun to lose faith in mankind. What changes had our country undergone to cause the eradication of such a marvelous species, I wondered. That all changed during my recent trip to Destin, FL.
I was meandering around Baytown Wharf, when lo and behold, I came across this majestic creature. This particular variety of the mullet, also known as the Moo-lay, or the Achy Breaky Big Mistakey, is normally indigenous to Mexico, but has recently been spotted all over the south. If you come across one during your day to day activities, don’t try to approach it on your own. They have been known to carry shotguns and spit tobacco. Just stand back and admire it in its own habitat.
