Mullet, Mullet, Mullet

A lawyer with a mullet walks into a bar. He sits down and orders a beer. A blonde walks in... you know the rest of the joke.

Anyways, mullets have been a recent subject of discussion.

They are iconic. Despite the flack they are also proud. And searching for mullets one finds a few recurrent instances. The Platonic ideal mullet casting its shadow on the wall of the cave that is the internets. One example may be too greasy while another is too frizzy. One example may be too stringy while another is too tight. Blonde, brunette, balding and more there is an ideal. But it's tiring to search for. And vaguely disturbing.

What does it mean that there are mullet wigs? Mullet chia? Mullet videos watched by tens of thousands of people? Mullet web sites and mullet spam? Mullet strategy and mulletbaiting?
