Team USA Wins International Mullet

That might be the best headline I’ve written yet.

After frenzied voting and trash talking and mullet admiration all around, let’s tally the votes.

Over at KristieJ’s site, where Canadian mullets brought it and brought it long and hard,Team USA gathered 142 votes, and Team Canada gathered 102.

Over at the hot pink palace of Bitchery, where His Majesty, The Mullet King Billy Ray Cyrus held court, Team Canada picked up 307 votes, while Team USA gathered 784.  So, the winner: Team USA, 926 to 409.

Which means KristieJ is going to be sporting for national Canadian pride, Ye Olde Mullet Wig, currently living on my kitchen counter. Oh, the mullet, it is amazing. This is so awesome. I hope she lets me try it on. I’m indubitably envious!

Thanks to KristieJ for the International Mullet competition – I was so sure Canada had it down cold (ha!) as a victory, since they not only have hockey but also more mullets per capita, according to eyewitness reports. But it’s the double power of Dog the Bounty Hunter and Billy Ray Cyrus who put Team USA over the top. Wow. I’m absolutely surprised at this victory.

    Yes, I do think Mr. Dog did tip us over and nabbed us the win!  That is one CRAZY mullet.

    I think it was Billy Ray and the MacGyver nostalgia factor.

    I hope we will get pictures of KristieJ wearing the wig.

    I voted for Team USA here and Team Canada over there, just ‘cause, but my heart was with MacGyver.

    It was the sweet photo of Mario & Jaromir (and the Stanley Cup) that grabbed my vote.

    Dang!  Outnumbered again!

    Oh well.  Are there any mixologists out there?  I think there needs to be an official Smart Bitch Mullet drink for the poor winner.  Maybe something symbolic of our genre, involving passionfruit and cream.  God, that sounds hideous.  Never mind.

    There does appear to be an actual Mullet shooter:

    Not sure I’d wish it on anyone, though…

    Ugh, that does sound nasty. I was thinking a Jack Daniels-Jagermeister shot with a Budweiser chaser, which would be utterly vile, but the ingredients seem to capture the je ne sais quoi of the US mullet-wearer. *g*

    Oh, my.  That drink sounds even worse than my imaginary passionfruit and cream concoction.  However, it does come with instructions:

    Mix in 2 oz shot glass and shoot like there’s no tomorrow! Follow with a rousing cry of “Fuckin’ A!”

    I think that should be standard with any shot.  Fuckin’ A!
