Triple F #5: Perth

In honor of my triumphant (?) return last night, this one is dedicated to the city of Perth in Western Australia.

Rat tails.

There are no words.

Rat tails, rat tails, rat tails.  What is a rat tail you ask? It’s a small (or large) tuft of hair that you let grow in the back of your head while the rest of your hair remains cut short.  They can be long, short, braided, to the side, in the middle, really anyway you want.  Although I am of the mindset that nobody should “want” one anywhere.  The adopted cousin of the mullet , the rat tail gained some popularity in the US during the 90’s, but quickly faded back into the black hole of bad hair where it came from.  Unfortunately, Perth (or Western Australia in general) didn’t get the memo.  In fact, on the flight back to Perth from Singapore last night, I spent the entire five hours sitting directly behind one and shaking my head wondering why anyone would think a rat tail is a good decision.  I just don’t get it.

Kudos to this guy for at least having a sense of humor about it.  Just kidding- there is nothing funny about a rat tail.

I have no personal photos of a rat tail because to be perfectly honest, I’d rather not have to look at one.

  1. Triple F indeed. Goodonya. These are fun.

    But at least when this fashion wears thin it can easily be abandoned.

    Now ponder the question: when are there too many tattoos, or too many semi-permanent metallic adornments on the body?

    My answer: any (but I’m really old school)

  2. Rat tails, possibly the worst part of Australian culture? Too harsh? Maybe I’ll just stick to agreeing that they’re never OK.
