William Henry “Hair”-isson (Haw-haw!)

posted by on August 14 at 12:00 PM

Ed Park’s wondrous personal blog, The Dizzies has a link to a delightful website that has portraits of every American president


…made out of hair! (There is no indication whether the hair is human or animal.) The misspellings are especially charming: “Andrew Jankson” was our 7th president, and “James knox Palk” was our 11th, to say nothing of “Ponald Wilson Reagan.” There are also portraits of Marx, Lenin, Princess Diana, and “Einsetein.”

I didn't know that James Abram Gayfield was President before Grover Clereland.

Awesome. Franklin PIerce was kind of a hottie, eh?

And something Clinton's expression reminds me of a Caravaggio. . . LOL. . .

This is the most worthwhile thing I have ever Slogged.

The two Bush portraits are made from pubic hair.

#9, I was about to crack the same joke, except Clinton.

I'm not sure what freaks me out more--that it's done with hair, or that it lists Bush's term as not having an end date. (The 22nd ammendment hasn't been shredded by Cheney, has it?)

Hey don't laugh -- half of Capital Hill has William Henry Harrison's haircut. And that's just counting the chicks.

Uh-oh...I think I sound like the Hipster Hater. :-(

Andy, Bush could drop dead tomorrow and the scheduled end-of-term would be instantly wrong (we should be so lucky).

The page in the website about the Embroidery Institute indicates that human, not animal, hair is used. That should please the animal rights cadre.
