When I think of plastic hair helmets, I think of the band Devo. (Don’t we all?)
But the old codgers who exercise at the same rec center that I do always insist on having one of the TVs in the fitness room tuned to Fox News (a.k.a. Faux News). It’s actually good for my health, because I get so worked up about the tripe spewing from the talking-heads-with-trumped-up-talking-points that my heart rate is elevated before I even start my workout.
Having (unwillingly) seen many hours of these broadcasts, I realized that Fox anchors have Devo-style hair helmets too:
And if you peel back the onion, and study a bit about Devo, and what they are all about…
The name Devo comes from their concept of ‘de-evolution‘—the idea that instead of continuing to evolve, mankind has actually begun to regress, as evidenced by the dysfunction and herd mentality of American society.”
… you realize that Fox News is the greatest ongoing Devo performance of all time. Well played, Spudboys!
