Patient: My hair keeps falling out. What can you give me to keep it in?
Doctor: A shoebox.

Preventing baldness is simple. Just knot your hair from the inside.

    I needed that joke, today
    I needed that joke, today especially. I lost so much hair over the weekend that I finally gave in and got it shaved. I do not know why they do not recommend this to individuals. It is so emotionally draining to see hair everywhere I turned, the bathroom floor, the tub, my bed...

    Keep the jokes coming...any about being temporarily bald?

    I told my husband
    that when my hair started falling out that I wanted him to shave it. I didn't want to lose a little bit everyday and be freaked about it everyday.
    Yes,maybe they should recommend it,but I wonder how many people have made that decision on their own.

    Baldness and Humor?
    Maybe when I have more hair I can connect the two, Cat! Right now, though, I do have black fuzz all over my head. That's progress. So maybe I will have a few bald jokes myself soon.

    yes I have hair
    but I did joke about it when I didn't too. I walked in one nite from work with a sucker in my mouth and told my hubby to start calling me Telly Savalas! (for those young folk here, Telly was a bald man who was on a TV show where he always had a sucker in his mouth). Hubby thought it was hilarious (his sense of humor is as warped as mine).

    Then when the hair started growing back, I looked like a little old man with male pattern baldness because the top wasn't growing yet, (talk about a shock walking by a mirror at that time!) so I told him to call me Fuzzy Wuzzy (old magnetic game)

    black fuzz? probably looks cute
    at least it isn't gray. Post a pic, I bet it is so soft, people are rubbing your head right? I really miss that.

    Cat! It's nice when you're comfortable enough with yourself that you can laugh at yourself!

    I may have his name wrong, but this was a cardboard with magnetic flakes under plastic, you pulled the magnets around the mans head and face to give him hair. Maybe we could do that to our heads?????

    Male pattern
    I had a different kind of baldness. The front and top came in quickly, but the sides didn't. Only now are my sides looking a little thicker. It seems to be coming in black and wavy although it's probably too soon to tell. For a while I looked like a small businessman selling Encyclopedias door to door. Now I look like I ride motorcycles a lot. Hair humor is great!

    HAIR NO MORE.............
    I had mine buzzed.........Look like GI JOE! Now the stubble is falling out.......Actually it hasn't been as traumatic as I thought it would be.....I love not having to shave my legs or underarms....glad this wasn't wasted on wintertime.......I wear a scarf around the house and my wig when I go out......I purchased my wig before my first chemo......I wanted to be prepared.....

    I couldn't fill up a shoe box with stubble.....loved the joke!
