"Haircare with Aquaman" Week, No. 3


3. Use a comb daily.


This can be tough. If you wear a skin-tight diving outfit all the time, as I do, there's really no practical place to carry a comb. Sometimes you just have to improvise!

Sharks are always willing to help boys comb their hair; tell 'em Aquaman sent you!


Sometimes, I just carry around the comb Black Lightning gave me for my birthday.

Of course, for me, it's a bit more decorative than functional. Garth uses it a lot, though.


So important is the daily use of a comb that I once abandoned my teammates in the Justice League Detroit to search the seven seas for a comb. A man must have some personal priorities. Besides, taking care of yourself so others won't have to is your first duty to yourself and to society ... and that includes haircare! Remember, boys; anyone can help save the world, but only you can comb your hair.

Oh, by the way--! As long as you have a comb with you, remember to always bring along a piece of wax paper, so you can make a kazoo to entertain yourself and others at parties, on the subway, and in line at the post office. It's one of my personal secret keys to instant popularity, kids!

Gosh, Bill Foster could've rocked a fresh and funkadelic hair-do with that comb to help him out!

I have very fine hair...should I try a barracuda instead of a shark?

Start with a lamprey.

That Black Lightning/Aqualad joke made my day.

I like that that trident has two extra pokey things. It's a pentadent, now. You can cook five hotdogs over a roaring campfire with that thing, as opposed to the traditional three.

The center tine is for "well done"; the flanking ones are for "medium"' the outer ones are for "rare".



Rob; I'm just glad someone got the joke!

The possession of a comb and wax paper at all times is what separates the mere "fun guys" from full-fledged bon vivants.

I currently sport the look that is known in some circles as the "Preemptive Strike" (i.e. I shave my head so no one will notice that I'm losing my hair.) Are there any fish that can help me with my daily routine?

Scipio said...

Sure, David:

the razorfish.

P.S. Harvey--

You do remember that on the craft segments of later SuperFriends episdoes, Aquaman taught youngsters how to make a kazoo from comb and wax paper?

Which they do all the time underwater, you know...
