Date: Tue, 26 Mar 1996 09:46:05 -0500 From: Wayne Glowka 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 jokes. 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.
