Bald truth

I've been greatly enjoying the Balding Celebrities website, in part for its subject matter (male celebs who feel the need to hide thinning hairlines by means of wigs, weaves, combovers etc.) and in part for the cool, measured writing style of its author, who appraises the offenders in a detached and objective style (the Norwood rating giving a slightly scientific air to the whole exercise).  Unless he's talking about the various thinning footballers of Chelsea FC, when a note of invective creeps in.  Just read his take on John Terry. I laughed out loud at the comparison with "transexual Lucy Smith".

On a similar note, the story of Stephen Ireland, which not being a football fan I'd never heard, has to be one of the funniest and saddest things I've read this month.  Boys, eh?
