Holy Mohawk, Batman!

Some people aspire to greatness in athletics. Others reach for the pinnacle of achievement in the arts.

Kazuhiro Watanabe has the world record for the tallest mohawk.

A couple of days ago, Mr. Wantanabe appeared in Washington Square Park in New York City, the geographical and emotional center of NYU, where my son is a sophomore. Wantanabe was displaying his 3-foot, 8.6-inch tall mohawk, while also promoting the release of the newest version of the Guinness Book of World Records, which includes Wantanabe’s hairy accomplishment.

If you don’t believe me, believe the Wall Street Journal.

I once baptized a young man whose hair was neatly coiffed into four-inch-long spikes. This was a challenge for a Presbyterian sprinkler. I’d love to have a shot at Mr. Wantanabe.
