Hair Raising Tales From The Future


 All that talk of time-travel over at MJ's reminded me of this:

Click for big-hair!

 I "appropriated" it on one of our jaunts to the future. I must say, I was surprised that the old rag was back in publication in the 24th century. It was with a stack of other magazines on a table in the departure lounge of the Temporal Traffic Control Tower I was waiting in for clearance to return to the 21st century. I was so fascinated with the article about the once fashionable Betazoid practice of caging small animals in elaborate wigs, that I couldn't put it down and it somehow managed to accompany me back here.

 Speaking of Betazoids, Deanna Troi's head-in-a-replicator styling trick isn't something I would recommend. Mr Mot's top ten tips are far more palatable. Except number eight...

 Ooh, and Janice Rand's basket-weave 'do is easier to accomplish than one might think!

  4. I'm not sure, LX. Just don't ask any Klingons as they'll use their bat'leths to deal with the split ends. And the Tribble. And probably "your friend" for harbouring a Tribble in the first place...

    Norma: Yes, it is nice to see the traditional ways aren't lost to history.

    MJ: And out of several others, too! I think the next issue deals with the planet that Shatner's wig comes from.

  5. I was always fond of Betazoid myself. Once I even did a little mouse in the cage. It was all fun, till the damn thing got out. I was never invited back to the Women's Auxiliary again. That's alright. I got them back. I slept with all their husbands.

  6. Does Shatner's wig sing Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds? I hope not.
