Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Monday, February 16, 2021

The accompanying money-thermometer is featured on MalePerm.com, a stunt-coif good-cause fundraising site that should be getting healthy hits now that the New York Times featured it in an article.

I’m intrigued by the selection of celebrity ‘dos to represent each level of dollar donations. I can’t find a definitive list, but from what I can figure, here’s the lineup:

$1,000 - Telly Savalas, a naturally follicle-challenged representation of the low end.

$2,000 - Looks like Dustin “Screech” Diamond, wearing a rainbow beanie atop his curls.

$3,000 - I’m stumped on this one. Best guess: Artie Lange with a long-haired perm-wig on.

$4,000 - Ann B. Davis as Alice from “The Brady Bunch” — a curious choice, given that the point here is to highlight male perm-tasticness.

$5,000 - Mr. Joy of Painting brillo-head himself, Bob Ross.

$6,000 - Not totally sure, but I’m betting that that’s Carrot Top in all his freaky glory.

$7,000 - Tom Selleck, in all his “Magnum, P.I.” glory.

$8,000 - Really hard to tell. I’ll guess Bob Dylan, as seen during his ’60s heyday.

$9,000 - Richard Simmons, sweatin’ to the permies.

$10,000 - Robert Reed, from his latter-day “Brady Bunch” performance (an according step up from the Alice level).

$15,000 - This quantum leap in giving apparently demands a comparable upgrade in perm stylin’, and Matthew McConaughey seems to be the pinnacle of that aesthetic.

I’m overwhelmed.

  1. $3k - Looks like Jorge Garcia, a.k.a. Hurley from Lost.

    $8k - I’m thinking that’s a Jonas Brother.

  2. Figures I would miss them, as those two represent significant gaps in my pop-cultural knowledge…
