News, but not the serious kind
Mr. Wang, novelty hairstylist!
Great news for you chicks who want someone using razor-sharp scissors on your neck and head while balanced upside-down!
Meet Wang Xiaoyu, who has more years of experience at kung fu than at barbering, something I myself look for in a stylist.
I happen to think he’s onto something smart, judging from the stuff I hear women saying to each other.
“Hey Ann, you still going to Jean-Pierre?”
“No, he stands upright all the time and just styles hair. What’s the fun in that?”
“I hear you! I’m looking for a guy to cut my hair while riding a unicycle, or maybe while sitting in a vibrating chair.”
“I know, girlfriend! I’m looking for a stylist who’s blindfolded, or at least upside-down. Are you thinking what I’m thinking?”
“Yes! Wang! Wang! Grab your head-bandages and let’s go!”
