The Truth About Red Heads

There are red heads in the Bible. According to legend, Judas Iscariot was a red head. And I interpret the Book of Revelation to mean that one day the world will be ruled by a triumvirate of red heads including myself, Nicole Kidman, and Horatio from Miami CSI.

Anyway, here is a cool video that debunks many of the myths about red heads, also known as “gingers” and in Australia as “rangers” ¬†and (ironically) as “bluey.”

I like how the video starts, “You know, red heads take a lot of crap …” Yes, we do!!! I never ceased to be amazed about how many times I get called “carrot top” despite the fact that carrot tops are clearly green.

I say bring on the reign of the righteous rangers!

    Michael, I dare challenge your scholarship: RANGas are not Rangers! – red and near ginger.

    Georgina Caillard and James McIntosh with ginger progeny at St Alfs possibly share your eschatology though.
