Oregon Unofficially Beats Most-Gingers-in-One-Place Record

Portland redhead eventIt’s hardly news that something weird happened in Portland, but uh, something weird happened and I’m all about keeping it weird and spreading the word. (In truth, I’m just bored.)

There’s this thing called the Redhead Event, where a bunch of soulless gingers gathered to collectively sacrifice blondes and brunettes in the middle of a cement park in downtown Portland.

Actually they were trying to break a world record, or they did. It just hasn’t been confirmed by the weird bored fetishist people over at Guinness.

1,300 to 1,600 recorded firecrotches beat the prior American record of 890 and the international record of 1,255. Attendees provided childhood photos to prove their natural redness.  Continue reading “Oregon Unofficially Beats Most-Gingers-in-One-Place Record”

Lindsay Lohan Going Bald At Restaurant Called ‘E. Baldi’

What do I say about this? A photo was taken of Lindsay Lohan‘s red hair from behind while she was at the Italian restaurant E. Baldi in Beverly Hills and there was a big ol’ chunk of it missing.

I don’t know if it fell out because she lives on Kombucha, menthols and grapefruits, or gossip-related stress (I wouldn’t know anything about that) or because the crack rocks killed her hair follicles, but SOMETHING is wrong. Lindsay may not be known for being on time, having good teeth, or remembering her lines but damn it, she’s always had hair!  Continue reading “Lindsay Lohan Going Bald At Restaurant Called ‘E.

Lindsay Lohan Converts Back To Gingerism

Lindsay Lohan finally took everyone’s advice! She dyed her hair red, just like it was back in 2009 and before.

Does this have anything to do with paparazzi confusing her with Blondie’s Deborah Harry who is 41 years her senior?

That whole debacle did have a lot to do with both of them staying at the Mercer Hotel in New York.

After Lindsay’s SNL gig photogs that were camped outside saw a hooded woman with blonde hair and made the assumption.

On the other hand, it does speak to the fact that Lindsay looked older than Sharon Stone, dead Bela Lugosi and the pyramids of Giza.

The Saturday Night Live costume/makeup people knew to put red and brunette wigs on her and now when I look at her I no longer have to pretend that there is a lingering semblance of the Mean Girls from my memory. Continue reading “Lindsay Lohan Converts Back To Gingerism”

World’s Largest Sperm Bank Turns Away Gingers

The Cryos International sperm bank in Denmark, which distributes to over 65 countries around the world, is no longer accepting sperm from people with the MC1R recessive variant gene.

In layman’s terms, they’re rejecting sperm from men with red hair!

The Telegraph is reporting that due to a supply and demand issue (not enough people want those sickly red sperms) the bank will put hold on red-haired submissions.

The bank’s director, Ole Schou, says of the situation:

“There are too many redheads in relation to demand, I do not think you choose a redhead, unless the partner – for example, the sterile male – has red hair, or because the lone woman has a preference for redheads. And that’s perhaps not so many.”

Less than four percent of the world population has naturally red hair…
