    1. I was told by a barber that it isn't sticky enough for modern hairdos with gels.

    1. Oh sure, you can use Brylcreem on your Wally, no problem, but it is not recommended for use on your Beaver.

  7. Brylcreem, a little dab'll do ya,
    Use more only if you dare.
    Brylcreem, the gals'll all pursue ya,
    They love to get their fingers in your hair.

  8. You youngsters don't know about Brycreem, but I grew up using this stuff, either that or Wildroot Cream Oil (which Daddy liked better than Brycreem).

    Wildroot Cream Oil was noted for featuring "Fearless Fosdick", the comic book hero of Lil' Abner.

    (What? You never heard of Lil' Abner?)

    Daddy always said I put too much of it on my hair.

    Brycreem!
    A little dab'll do ya.
    Brycreem!
    You'll look so debonair!
    Brycreem!
    The gals'll all pursue ya!
    They'll love to run their fingers through your hair!

    1. "Use Wildroot Cream Oil, Charlie."

      (A bird, responding...)

      "But that would be ill-eagle. My name is Marvin."

  9. And then sometime in the late '60 there was a TV commercial for another product, (forgot the name) with the tagline "The wethead is dead.".

  10. Stand by for some politically-incorrect snark . . . in the service of humor only, of course.

    Men cut their hair, wash their hair, and comb their hair. Anything else is for females & faggots.
