Just because it’s the clarinet doesn’t mean you can’t shine.

Girls love guys with skills, bow staff skills, computer hacking skills, and clarinet skills
So true Charlie. So true.

Why are all of u people making jokes about his hairdo???
My stomach hurts from laughing for soooo long!!!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
Awww…he looks like froggy from the little rascal movie….
This was my first thought as well.
Wow, a super mullet!
The instant I saw this, I thought about that kid back in the 90s that had the “Hello my future girlfriend” website.
“Sorry.. I can’t hear you over how awesome I am!”
my fav comment of them all…
So many bad 80s fashion statements in one photo! The Mullet, the oversized glasses, the sequins! I hope this poor kid grew up to be Hugh Jackman hot and is getting the last laugh today!
There were 12 photos in all……this was just the first in the sequins.
I can’t even count the number of hipsters that would kill to get their hands on this outfit… in a totally ironic sort of way of course.
Clarinets are pretty hip. Wanna join my indie band?
She’s got the confident air of someone who knows she can rock that clarinet! I had a very similar uniform in a drum corps in the ’70′s. I’d love to see the hat she wore with this.
It’s a boy with a spikey on top mullet.
If there were another 4 identical kids…..I would definitely ‘see quins’
Oh my I’ve just read this comment like four times over the last few days.
I just got it.

She’s rocking the femullet
It’s Pat — pre-Saturday Night Live!
It’s either one of the Schmenge offspring or the reincarnation of Woody Herman. Sequined bowtie, cummerbund and suspenders? Check! School-bus-headlight sized glasses? Check! “Licorice stick?” Check! Ready to rock & roll!
The Schmenges! Great reference. She’s smiling just thinking about the coffee and cabbage rolls.
I love the shine in the lens of his huge 80′s glasses.
Those glasses … they’re ginormous!
This child is stunning!
Just to be the ‘one’… I think thats photoshopped. No way is that real……
I had that haircut
this kid is making the clarinet look cool. . . wth
…and he/she is making the mullet look cool.
“Just because it’s the clarinet doesn’t mean you can’t shine.”
And with all those sequins, shine he does!!
And this one time, at band camp…
The disco cumberband and accompanying suspenders are 80′s awesomeness! People should envy those of us that survived growing up during the 80′s!!! Mark had cojones to turn this pic in.
I will never look at my clarinet the same way again…
The evasive and unpredictable Flute Mullet
Flute Mullet, didn’t he play 3rd base for the Yankees?
That’s a boy, I think. Right?
Hey, I love this! remember when band was something you could take in school? Many schools don’t/can’t even offer it anymore.
You go and play that danged thing!!! More power to you…and for our children and grandchildren who will never have a chance to play in a school band because their parents can’t afford it, bless you all.

That’s exactly right, Rebecca! Band should be something everyone at least gets the opportunity to do.
I’m a band director, and even I don’t know where to start.
is it a boy or a girl?
I just asked three different people their opinions and none of us have a clue!
Am I the only one seeing the hint of a bosom above the cumberbund?
I think it’s just the shirt puffing out.
Personally, I think it’s a boy, but I grew up in the 80′s (aka the Decade of the Mullet) so I’m something of an expert (HAH!). Actually, not only do I think it’s a boy, I think it is Mark, the guy who posted it. Hope he comes back to tell us……then again if I were him I’m not sure I would…..
I have never heard the 80s referred to as the “Decade of the Mullet”.
That’s because I was attempting to be witty. Nobody calls it that outside of my own head.
But inside your head, do the voices all sound the same, or are they different? And do some of the voices sound like perhaps they, too, are wearing mullets? These are very important questions in determining your true expertise regarding the Decade of the Mullet. And besides that, I’m nosy.
Yes, true MommaJay, for only one with true expertise should refer to it as the Decade of the Mullet. Such phrases aren’t to be dropped lightly into conversation….it’s not as if this is a website designed for fun….but on to the voices for the most part they sound like old hippies……but on Wednesdays…..Wednesday is mullet day…..you don’t want to know what happens on Wednesday…..
proof that polka disco does exist!
Can’t top that response!
The uniform isn’t what bothers me (I mean, have you seen some color gaurds?). It’s the mullet I can’t get over!!
I too could handle the bowtie, cummerbund, and suspenders, but that mullet is killing me!
