This Planted an Idea in My Head

The other day I was reading a bit of Stern.de. It's a German magazine that's sort of a cross between The Economist and US Weekly, in that it has both news stories and occasional pictures of boobs (it is German, after all).

In any case, I saw this article about Wayne Rooney. I don't really care about soccer, football, or fútbol, but in this particular case, Wayne Rooney turns out to be a soccer player in England (not a comedian, as I had previously imagined; that's Mickey Rooney). Nevertheless, the point of the article, and this post, is that Rooney got a hair transplant and put up a picture on the internet. And it doesn't look half bad.

Now I'm wondering if I might be able to work out some sort of deal like this with my own head. After all, as part of my "Hair Plate Tectonics" theory I originally presented in the year 2002, I've got more hair than necessary on the back of my neck, but not nearly enough in the front. As I explained at an impromptu medical conference on a balcony in Regensburg, Germany, this is due to the shifting follicle plates on my skull. However, a transplant might be able to reverse that effect. 

So, if you know anything about this procedure, feel free to chime in in the comments (unless you're a blog spammer). I suppose that living in a so-called "medical tourism" country like Costa Rica could also turn out to be a blessing, but we'll have to see... Thanks for reading, and have a good one!

My brother had it done. Looks pretty good. Had it done in Canada without telling anyone. I found out when I yelled at him - "Why the hell is your head red?"

Did he get red hair implanted?

Kristen said...

No, the area was still red from the implantation.

That whole "Canada" aspect reminds me of guys who have a new girlfriend... "but she lives in Canada, so you'll probably not meet her."
