Why Does This Man Not Have White Eye Brows ?
« on: 18/01/2009 22:00:37 »
Dearest Peeps ,

Brace yourself !!


Here is a man:



Darling by name...but Darling by nature ??

As a sheepy, I am the purest white, my woolly colour defines my serene virginal innocence, I am a sheepy angel !!.....but see the man ?...his eyebrows are not white !!

Why's that then ?..will his eyebrows ever go white ?


As a firm believer in empirical study I snuk into my neighbours house at 3am this morning and painted his black hair white using permanent non wash-outable paint and waited for his eyebrows to also turn white !..To keep his head still he kindly allowed me to superglue the back of his head to his bed......a few hours later and they are still brown !!...so, no luck there ![:(!]

can ewe help  ?


hugs et les shmisheys


mwah mwah mwah


neil
Eyebrow Ewebrow We all Brow !
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

People with black hair often go grey prematurely. Although this is sad it usually means that they don't go bald. I guess that facial hair is slightly different and may age at a different rate. I have seen a man with a stripey beard and mustash. His hair aged at different rates. Please note the stripes were vertical.
As for Darling. SSSSSSH he is really a badger.

No! just noticed one moving. I think they could be trained caterpillars and not eyebrows after all.

Dye has been suggested ...http://www.guardian.co.uk

But looking at a close-up it doesn't appear to be a dye job: there are a few white eyebrow hairs.

At least his eyebrows aren't trying to reach his ears like this fellow's:-

That ear-reaching eyebrow could be a part eyebrow and part scar.
Photos of that vintage (Victorian) were taken using orthochromatic film which renders red very dark.
So a subtle red mark on the temple could be reproduced as dark as an eyebrow.

Denis Healey ...




Not as quite as "red" as Leonid, but has longer eyebrows.

My Latin teacher, "Ubi" Lane, had eyebrows that would have put Healey's to shame. They stuck out & curled up.

How about the actor in Gladiator who made the circus announcements? I forget his name, but he had HUGE eyebrows!

Must be fun taking them for walks. I presume, as trained caterpillars , that they must make good Pupae !!
