Somehow in the course of human events, the mullet hairstyle has become the butt of quite a few jokes - so much so that the '80s hairdo now has an entire Web site devoted to its utter tastelessness: www.mulletjoe.com.
As if the Internet couldn't get any weirder, surfers can now hit this new site that revolves completely around the mullet, defined on the page as a plumage that must be short in the front and long in the back.
Though the mullet is often considered the ugliest hairstyle imaginable, this Web site is anything but ugly. Mulletjoe.com is chock full of useless mullet facts, pictures and even games that are sure to provide even the most intellectual person with hours of immature fun.
For those unsure of what exactly the mullet is (or how to grow one for that matter), visit the "What is a mullet?" section of the site, complete with cartoons and descriptions for the truly curious mullet pupil.
However, if mindless amusement is more your bag, check out the "mullet games" link, which includes Mullet Memory, Tic-Tac-Mul and Mullet Simon Says. It takes about eight brain cells to conquer each level or to beat the computer, so have a mull-a-rific time.
For other adventures in mullet land:
www.mulletsgalore.com. Unofficially deemed the king of all mullet Web sites, this mullet page is slightly less politically correct than most. OK, actually it's just downright crude (but damn funny). Highlight of this site: The "mullet classifications" link. Bet you didn't know a virgin was also a type of mullet.
www.mulletlinks.com. A collection of mullet mayhem on the web, this site rates other mullet sites using a traditional five-star system. The site includes its own collection of mullet debauchery along with a link to send mullet postcards to all your closest friends. How nice.
www.mulletjunky.com. The URL says it all. Mullet junkies unite and hit this page, if for nothing else than the cute mullet lingo peppered throughout the site. Favorite terms include (but are not limited to): The ape drape, the Tennessee waterfall, the mud flap, business on top-party out back, achy-breaky-big mistakey and yep-nope.
So if you're searching for a new, hip style or just in need of a good long laugh, be sure to hit one of these mulltastic sites. If a couple of schmucks actually took the time to build these sites, then they're more than likely worth the trip.
