Little boys with "rat tails"

are there any in your area?
I'm in Minnesota and my kids (soon to be 2nd and 3rd graders) know a boy or 2 with them and I personally didn't even like them in the early 90s when they were actually "IN" ... are they coming back all over or is it a few flukes?????????

  • I haven't seen them since I was a kid. They look so gross and silly.

  • I have seen a few around. I also did not like them when my son wanted one. He never had the patience with the itch at the collar while it was growing out, so he never got one.

  • What like a mullet?? LOL! Nope, not here. The old Justin Beiber look is in with long straight hair swiped sideways is the cool look.

  • My cousin had one as a teenager some 25 years ago, but I haven't heard them mentioned lately.

  • They were big during the 80's, too. I see them every now and then living in the south, occasionally on grown men.

    I think of them all as bad hairstyle decisions.
