In honor of our erstwhile mayor's 42nd birthday on Oct. 10
, SF Weekly
has declared Friday, Oct. 9 to be "Comb Your Hair Like Gavin Newsom Day."
Your participation in this experiment will, once and for all, answer the critical question that has plagued local social scientists and armchair political psychiatrists: Does combing your hair like Gavin Newsom make you behave like Gavin Newsom, or does behaving like Gavin Newsom induce you to comb your hair like Gavin Newsom?
It's the classic chicken-and-egg, nature-vs.-nurture dilemma -- except L'Oreal hair gunk
Anyhow, we'd love to see everyone's contributions on the inaugural Comb Your Hair Like Gavin Newsom Day. Personally, we're uncertain what our weapon of choice should be: Pinaud Clubman
(superhold!) or Tres Flores Brilliantine
(which, according to its own publicity materials, "continues to maintain its popularity in the Hispanic and ethnic community." Hmmm? What is this "ethnic community" of which you speak? Are Armenians involved? Baltic peoples? Would it behoove Newsom politically to use a popular "ethnic" hair gel?).
So, men and women, send us your scalps! Photos can be uploaded to SF Weekly's Flickr Pool
