    I LOVE THIS PHOTO! It isn’t a mullet, it’s Jon Bon Jovi hair. I remember it well. A rather large woman who frequents my library, here in Tennessee, is still wearing a version of it. When it’s on a woman, I call it “Heart Hair”, as in Ann and Nancy. Dave, I’m grateful that you’re not still wearing it. And thanks for the update!

  2. Diane says:

    I too, applaud Dave for being such a great sport! And hey Dave, seriously….you need to find a way to get back at your sisters!

  3. Xan_Steel says:

    Wow, Dude, looks like a lady. O.O

  4. Tiffany Skrocki says:

    Dave Barry! You are my hero. Kudos to you for being able to laugh at yourself. I may just fly to NJ to get some work done at your shop. I will be a Dave Barry Groupie!!! -Tiff in Houston

    The one on the left is a girl. The next one over is a boy. The last two are kinda fuzzy. Batting 2-for-4 is okay isn’t it?

    Dave the Mullet Hulkster’s the baby brother?! I guess having to arm curl 50 pound cans of hair spray and backcombing through that mane for hours on end to achieve that style would bulk up those biceps fast and maybe cause a growth spurt! It doesn’t look like his sibs minded hanging with him- maybe his older brother got to date Dave’s cast offs!

  7. CuddlyBear says:

    I’m just as confused as he is.

  8. Suzy says:

    Can we all say AQUA NET?!

  9. CPB says:

    Hi, is the guy w/big hair and red shorts, Dave? From Paramus, NJ? ANd, used to work at North American Lobster??? Please let me know! :-0)

  10. Chad Alan says:

    i can’t tell the gender of anyone in this photo

  11. Lila says:

    ick. glad I was too young during those partner pickin’ days…

  12. Ned says:

    Sorry but at first glance, the person in the red shorts looked like a female, but I guess not. “He” looks like a woman on steroids.

  13. Greg says:

    please show some respect and stop making fun. its not like you can bring home the gold for the East German women’s sprint team.

    i am your #1 fan Marita Koch!

  14. John says:

    Question: On the right in the red shorts and the black top, is that a male or female?

    Seriously, I can’t make it out.

  15. chris says:

    Didn’t they star in Eight is Enough?

  19. johnny says:

    Awesome photo, Dave… I laughed out loud, but only because my brother and I tried really hard to sport righteous mullets ourselves. (Maybe if we gathered up all the mullets we cut off in the early 90′s, we could plug up that oil leak in the Gulf…)

  20. Jodi says:

    Can we say “who wears short shorts,” if you dare then wear Nair for short shorts.” And it does look like he did use Nair

  21. PapaBear says:

    Oh mylanta, is THAT a dude?

  22. CurtCarroll says:

    how did this guy not win the mullet contest?

  23. devtrev says:

    If Richard Simmons and Joe Piscopo had a baby.

  24. Kris says:

    There is no chance that picture wasn’t taken in New Jersey…and it may have been taken this week…

  25. Desirae says:

    wow ,his hair is sure a bouncin’ and behavin’. that mullet is so mighty it should have a halo around it!lol

  26. Greg ambort says:

    NOTHING can say Milwaukee ’83 better than this. A Chrysler K Car and a Mid-West version of a Hollywood glam-rocker. (Why are his legs shaved? Even Brett Michaels didn’t go that far…) Love the Dolphin shorts, dude.

  27. Ro says:

    Wow. One thing you’ve gotta say for Dave, he’s always trendy!
