Three-toed sloths

The Three-toed Sloth is the slowest moving mammal.  It moves so slowly that plants (algae) grow in its fur.

Am I the only person who associates green-haired employees with three-toed sloths?

Perhaps it is just a coincidence but I can only see three fingers on this woman.
Note to my children:  Do not go to job interviews with green hair unless the job entails handling large, skittish herbivores.


  1. What about pink hair? I might or might not have colored pink stripes in my hair last summer and be considering doing it again :-) In fairness, I am already gainfully employed and do not need to make a good first impression on an employer!

  2. Did it look like this http://www.wtae.com/image/view/-/33603466/medRes/4/-/maxh/630/maxw/1200/-/1sng1lz/-/Watermelon-Snow-in-Sierra-Nevada.jpg

    1. That's really cool. I didn't know about watermelon snow so I googled it...you've taught me something today! And no, I do not think it resembled algae. I rather liked it and may do it again this summer, maybe even go crazy and do purple, too! (it washes out in a week or so, it's fun for the fair)

  3. The first requirement of any teenage fad is parental and old fogey disapproval. For some it is a desperation for recognition, for others a scream for attention.
    It seems strange to what is acceptable, too. Bright blonde or red hair is desirable but others colors just as loud are not. It seems like a distinction without a difference but it is made.
    The picture looks like a bad nylon wig and not her hair. More natural hair might work on such a pretty girl.

    I can handle the hair better than piercings. I still cringe when I think of the idiot that use to click his tongue stud on his teeth all day.

  4. Did you know you can shorten your long links with LinkShrink and get dollars from every visitor to your short urls.
