• Police in Ohio are on the lookout for a man responsible for a rash of bank robberies across the state who could be referred to as the “Mullet Bandit.” Why, you ask? Because he sports a mullet. Duh. Do I have to explain everything to you people? Reuters’ description of the suspect: “The suspect is described as a white male, in his late 30’s, about 6 feet tall, with a medium build, a scruffy appearance and dark hair cut in a mullet — a style from the 1980s that was also known as the ape drape, the neck warmer and the 10/90.” Heh. Ape Drape. That one is new to me. One other interesting nugget from the article: “According to the website Rate My, the popularity of the mullet in a community is ‘inversely proportional to average annual income’ in the area.” That sure is a nice way of putting it.
