Roman Around

combating liberalism and other childish notions

Although not hard core, I fancy myself a bit of collector – primarily New York Mets and Beatles memorabilia – but I concede to being out of my league on this one. Therefore, from the perspective of a wet-behind-the-ears, low-level, minor-league pack rat, I must ask … How exactly does one display singed hair?

I’m sure that among those bad-to-the-bone, big-time collectors who make it their business to scarf up everything from Hollywood ear wax secretions to the fruits of a good rock and roll nose picking, the quandry of how to prominently showcase the burnt hair of a dead pop singer poses no problem.

To me, however, it is a mystery.

Under glass?

In baggies?

As part of a multi-container body hair display case?

I don’t know.

Once I heard that Michael Jackson’s burnt hair was up for sale, I knew this would keep me awake nights.

From The Sun:

Michael Jackson on fireSinged strands of Michael Jackson’s hair that were burned in a Pepsi advert are coming up for sale.

They were collected by Ralph Cohen, the executive producer of the commercial, who took off his coat to put the flames out on the singer’s head.

Jackson was said to have never fully recovered from the second degree burns and an autopsy reportedly showed he was almost bald.

The hair was preserved after the accident in 1984 by Mr Cohen and the 12 strands are clearly singed.

The hair and Mr Cohen’s account as well as a signed colour photo of Jackson are set to make up to £1,000 when they go under the hammer.

Also up for sale are two confirmed carrot stubs used by Bugs Bunny in his 1942 film “Bugs Bunny Gets The Boid.”
