I stand by this comic, and every word printed in it. If you’re a man with a comb-over reading this, please take it in the spirit it’s intended, not as an insult but as brutal honesty. If you have a comb-over, you’re not fooling anybody but yourself. Like ripping off a Band-Aid or jumping in a cold swimming pool, just shaving it and facing life as a bald man will be difficult at first, but far easier in the long run than any of the alternatives.
Now, as for the president, there’s some reason to believe that his—let’s be honest—ridiculous farce of a comb-over isn’t just hiding a bald spot. It might be hiding the scar from a procedure called a scalp reduction surgery.
If true, in my opinion, this speaks not only to his vanity, and his belief that the rest of us are easily fooled, but also to his complete lack of foresight, because the only way a procedure such as this can possibly be effective in reversing hair loss for any period of time longer than a few months is if the patient lost a bunch of hair, but can expect to not lose any more, ever, for the rest of their life.
That is not how male-pattern-baldness works.
