Subject: Bad Hair Daze
Years ago there was an article in AMERICAN SPEECH about trendy names for
what I used to call the barbershop or the beauty parlor, depending on the
gender of the person needing hair removed. At any rate, the effort to give
such places clever names continues and sometimes results in unintentional
Gone, but not forgotten in Macon, Georgia, was "Hair Bizarre."
We have a new funny looking name in Milledgeville: "Hair-It-Is"--an
obvious pun on "Here it is" but an unfortunate reference to some sort of
hair disease ("hairitis").
BY THE WAY: If your satellite system can get Channel 13 WMAZ from Macon,
GA, watch my colleague and your fellow ADS-L'er David Muschell being
interviewed about his new book, WHAT IN THE WORD, on "Date with Del" at
12:15 EST today.
