Armstrong uses toupées? nearly as bad as using drugs it seems ..... For those of us who are "hair impaired" - this is worse than using drugs.
"Hair impaired"? Hair IMPAIRED!! What are you talking about?
Some of us have our cranial hair where it's supposed to be: on our chin and cheeks, and above our upper lip! "Hair impaired" indeed!
Some of us have it on the chin, the upper li & the top of the head!
Although, my father, whose hairstyle could have been referred to as "hypothetical", used to claim "Grass doesn't grow on a busy street"
You had a very wise father!
My father made the same claim, but I told him it wasn't a lack of hair growth, but the fact that at some point the hair had made a U-turn, growing down instead of up, thus accounting for his fuzzy thinking.
The common term "Hair-brained ideas" seems to verify this.
The first use of harebrained dates to 1548. The spelling hairbrained also has a long history, going back to the 1500s when hair was a variant spelling of hare. The hair variant was preserved in Scotland into the 18th century, and as a result it is impossible to tell exactly when people began writing hairbrained in the belief that the word means "having a hair-sized brain" rather than "with no more sense than a hare." While hairbrained continues to be used and confused, it should be avoided in favor of harebrained which has been established as the correct spelling.
(Emphasis added where needed.)So Your father was right! QED!!
