Since then, people have donated an additional $3,000 in honor of Allan and his mullet.

Add a zero or two now that the story has been broadcast. Awesome work, dude!! Rad!!

A lot of kids rock mullets just fine. Like this kid. It's the adults walking around with them that's the problem. Should be an age limit for mullet haircuts.

If you are this tall, you can not have a mullet. Try the Zuckerberg cut instead!

I would like to support a worthy cause, but not that haircut. I'll have to mullet over.

Mullet Boy, not the medium powered second tier super hero we deserve, but the medium powered second tier superhero we got.

Thank you Beastie Boys.  This used to be called "long hair".  And it was the natural evolution of the "Beatles" cut.  And it was cool.

Now when I bring out old pictures from 1981 it's "There's dad with a mullet".  Equating respectable old me with the Joe Dirt crowd...

I have grown my hair out for charity several times, a couple feet long. I usually just wear a hat simplify things.

Sometimes folks tell me I need a haircut. I'll lift up my hat, run my fingers through my long beautiful locks, and say, "Yeah, I've been thinking of getting a mullet..."

People FREAK OUT when I say that. "No! Don't get a mullet!" It's hilarious, especially for the bartenders who have already heard me pull that one.

There are folks who get really uptight about other people's hair.

No lie.

I haven't been able to visit a "hair stylist" in decades; they start drooling and trip all over themselves getting scissor-happy when they see me.

Only barbers will listen to "just an inch trim, please" and not leave me near-bald. I usually end up just chopping it off myself for trims and when I donate.

Good on the kid for doing it...


BUT.... Isn't it a little sick that the, "greatest country in the world" relies on the charity of children
to support causes like Foster care, or paying medical bills of other kids that have cancer?

By winning Arkansas does that mean he goes to Canada to compete in the big show?

Please tell me that the evening wear competition involves Canadian tuxedos.

Don't marginalize the mullet community. You can also wear dirt bike gear.

Actually the faux hawk bothers me more.  If you are over about 12 you really shouldn't walk around looking like a flat head screwdriver.  Just my odd thought on it.

Business in the front and a party in the back where everybody is invited.

My experience (formerly being one and then raising two) has always been that middle schoolers are little psychopaths who need to be locked in cages for a few years for the benefit of everyone else in society. This kid puts the lie to all that. God bless him, I hope he achieves everything he wants to in life.

Zuckerberg cut is unacceptable.

That man triggers the 'uncanny valley' feeling to me.
