It's Bleep'n Golden ...


Rod Blagojevich's hair is legendary -- and fodder for late night punch lines ... and now the befouled former governor's bushy locks have spawned a new line of hair care products. "Blago: It's Bleep'n Golden Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner" was launched by the owner of a suburban Chicago company after the idea came to him in a dream. "We're swamped," said Dennis Fath, owner of Delta Laboratories Inc. in Elk Grove Village ... "I don't know what to do. We're a very small company, and we've had over 200 orders today. And they're still coming in every minute."

It was essential, he said, that the product be volumizing in order to be faithful to the voluminous coif that inspired it. This is the first time Delta, which makes hair care products for other companies, has retailed it's own brand. "We made the bottles golden, so it's bleep'n golden," Fath said. "And we made them volumizing so you could look more like him. He has great hair -- no one can deny that."

Blago's publicist Glenn Selig said that his client has yet to try them. "He's aware of it yes, but he has not used it," Selig said. "We hope it passes the smell test." Selig said that Blagojevich will not be endorsing the products, but has no plans to put the kibosh on them, either. The bottles sell for $8 each or $15 for two at blagohair.com ... Delta Labs joins a long line of companies hoping to make a buck off of the indicted former governor.

I understand you've managed to upset the editor of this publication ... perhaps he doesn't understand who you are.

What seems to be the problem?

I have switched back to Blogger's "new editor" ...

It's getting there! I like it!

Given the increased width, you might want to experiment with increasing the font size used in the posts just a bit ... probably there's a global way to do that somewhere in the setup ... and if not, we could easily change in the code ... then again, you might not want!

What happened to the "Twitter" links?

I do like it!
