The Disappearance of Baldheaded Row

Miss Georgia D. George wasn't correct in her prediction that baldness would disappear by the year 1950. Though she was correct that "baldheaded row" would disappear by then.

The term was unfamiliar to me, so I had to look it up. It indicated the front rows at burlesque and variety shows, which were full of baldheaded men leering up at the girls (or so the joke went). The disappearance of baldheaded row was, of course, due to the declining popularity of burlesque shows, and not to any advance in the hairiness of men.

Had her prediction come to be realized would we be dealing with hairy one-eyed priests too?

Just askin'.

When I was a wee lad I used to tease my father his thinning hair. He said it was a result of his brain growing and pushing it out. I insisted that his brain was shrinking and sucking it in.

Now that mine is thinning out, I'm beginning to think that I wasn't far off the mark.
