Redhead, Identification, All About Birds – Cornell Lab of …

In summer, your best bet for finding Redheads is to head to the pond-studded prairie pothole grasslands of the Great Plains. Much of the rest of the U.S. gets their chance to find them during migration and winter. Migrating Redheads stop over on medium to large reservoirs and lakes. In winter look for them often in shallow waters of the Gulf Coast as well as in the Great Lakes.

List of redheads – Wikipedia

This is a list of notable people with natural red hair. Red or ginger hair may come in a variety of shades from strawberry blond to auburn.[1] With only 2% of the population having red hair,[2] it is the rarest natural hair colour.[1]

People who dyed their red hair into another colour or who went grey with age are included, but people with hair dyed red, such as Clara Bow, David Bowie, Lucille Ball, Rita Hayworth and Sophie Turner are not.

Figures from the Bible or classical mythology, such as Esau or Judas Iscariot, are included. Characters from modern fiction such as Anne of Green Gables or Ginger Hebblethwaite are not.

The term ‘Redhead’ is also popularized by Archies comics, USA where its main character teenager Archie Andrews with red hairs for his Scottish roots, is often addressed as ‘redhead’ or ‘redheaded junk’ by his arch rival Reggie who despite his handsome looks and deep pockets falls a notch below Archie on gaining the ultimate company and sympathies from the girls around.

Redheads: The Ghosts Who Walk

WHAT CAUSES RED HAIR? A low incidence of the pigment eumelanin coupled the presence of the pigment McGinlemin, which is also responsible for me eyeballing your redheaded daughter at the neighborhood Christmas party.

Secondary causes of your child’s red hair are conceiving in an upside down position, being a witch, and the fact that your mailman is Irish.

WHAT ARE SOME EPITHETS FOR A REDHEAD? Carrot Top, Copper Top, Strigoi Vii, Burning Bush, Firecrotch, and other milquetoast observations.

They’re still really defensive about it, though.

If you’re an art history major, you might call red hair “Titian.” But if you’re an art history major, why are you reading Cracked? Go swirl some brandy, ya literate fuck.

The English use the term “Gingers” because they don’t understand their own language. When people with strawberry-red hair are called Gingers and people with ginger-colored hair are Strawberry Blondes, someone needs to get beaten with an Oxford English Dictionary.

WHY DO SO MANY ENGLISH PEOPLE HATE REDHEADS?

When you’re as pale as England, you take any opportunity to mock someone so white they’re transparent.

ARE REDHEADS DISAPPEARING?

That’s just a Procter & Gamble guerilla marketing virus. In reality, redheads can write their own genetic ticket after an entire generation sexually imprinted on Jessica Rabbit.

IS IT TRUE REDHEADS DON’T HAVE SOULS?

The question isn’t what makes you doubt redheads have souls; it’s what makes you think anyone does? Except dogs, obviously; dogs are great. Not little dogs, though. Any dog under 15 lbs is officially a cat until it proves it can do cool dog stuff other than yap a lot. No fucking way does a cat have a soul unless it stole one from the baby it suffocated. Unless that baby was redheaded.

Boudica – If you’re wondering where redheads get their reputation for a fiery temper, ask a citizen of Londinium. Oh wait, you can’t because Brythonic queen Boudica burned it off the map with her hair after mutilating more people than a SoCal plastic surgeon.

But be fair – Rome had flogged her, raped her daughters, and enslaved her tribe. That’s not a hot temper; that’s the plot of a Mel Gibson film.

Everyone is bastards

CORE VALUES REACHED: Highly aggressive

Elizabeth I – Not being English or oppressed by the English, the only thing I know about this woman is she’s Cate Blanchett. But watch me fake it: she hated Spaniards, betrayed her promises to the Irish and persecuted Catholics. Also, I think she used to fistfight Shakespeare when she was drunk.

Is the Prince Consort of England title worth marrying a woman without eyebrows? It’s a dilemma.

CORE VALUES REACHED: Possible alien hybrid

Thomas Jefferson – He’s pretty well-respected for someone who kept slaves. These days if you imprison your wife’s sister and impregnate her several times, you’re going to end up in prison, or worse, reality TV.

Oh, Jefferson! You’re always enslaving your own children.

CORE VALUES REACHED: Lying/Hypocrisy

Winston Churchill –

He was not only the first bulldog to be elected Prime Minister of Britain, he was a redhead posing as a bald man. There are no color pictures, so I’m counting on the resemblance to Alfred E. Neuman to convince you.

Cripes! Is that his mom or did he pick up gorgeous women by telling them he’d be Prime Minister one day?

Here are some of the common images of the redhead in popular woman-objectifying culture.

THE WILLFUL FIREBRAND

As played by: Maureen O’Hara

McLintock was the only man who could tell her no.

In all the best John Wayne movies O’Hara played the woman who dares to have her own opinion until The Duke drags her across town in her underwear. It turns out she’s still alive. I’m thrilled for her continued vitality, but it’s going to make this line I crafted when I thought she was dead awkward: she’s so hot I’d ogle her corpse if it were still warm. If I could time travel back to 1939 for only a few hours, World War II would still happen because I’d be too busy trying to divert her first marriage.

Honorable dye job: Rita Hayworth

CORE VALUES REACHED: Nearly indomitable spirit, Extreme Irishness

THE SMARTEST WOMAN IN THE ROOM

As played by: Gillian Anderson

You have beautiful brains.

No one’s sure how to stereotype a redhead, so they just assume they’re brunette-smart even if they’re playing blonde-dumb. Dana Scully was a well-rounded character who called everyone on their bullshit, but if you only knew X-Files from magazine covers, you’d think it was a show about a scantily-clad Gillian Anderson licking things. You have to admit it would have improved the drag-ass episodes written by Chris Carter.

Honorable dye job: Christina Hendricks

CORE VALUES REACHED: Actually did have a hybrid alien baby

THE CARTOON SEXBOMB

As played by: Swing Shift Cinderella

Every time an old person whines from their cage about Hollywood corrupting today’s youth, remind them they grew up watching this How-To Guide to Sexism. This cartoon is responsible for more first erections than puberty and corduroy pants combined.

THE LUNATIC IN BED

As played by: Julianne Moore

Revlon’s Token Redhead is a versatile actress, charitable activist, and extinction-level MILF. She has a lot of freckles even for a redhead, probably because every time she steps outside God brings the sun out to get a better look. Her sex scenes have gotten so taboo they’re no longer even erotic. I fully expect her next film to feature a bewildered Liam Neeson trying to make love to her as she claps two rocks down on an unsuspecting jar of apricot preserves.

She also wrote a children’s book called Freckleface Strawberry. This is her being kid-friendly:

Breeding

Redheads breed in the northern prairies of the United States and Canada and the intermountain marshes of the west. They prefer non-forested environments with water areas sufficiently deep to provide permanent and fairly dense emergent vegetation for nesting. Of the diving ducks, redheads are the most common breeders in the United States. Female redheads lay an average of 7-10 eggs and are notorious for parasitizing canvasback nests.

Latin: Aythya americana

Average length: M 20″, F 19″

Average weight: M 2.4 lbs., F 2.1 lbs.

Male redheads have a reddish head and upper neck with a black lower neck, foreback and breast. The remaining back is a dark grayish color. The hind back and tail are brownish-black. A broad band of light gray extends across the dusky gray wing and out onto the primaries, which helps distinguish it from scaup. The legs and feet are gray, and the bill is light blue-gray with a whitish band behind a relatively wide black tip. Female redheads have a reddish-brown head, neck and breast, with a buff white chin and throat and an indistinct eye ring and stripe behind the eye. The flanks are warm brown, contrasting little with the breast, but with buffer fringes. The upper parts are darker and duller brown, with the upper-wing-coverts browner than on the male; otherwise the wing is similar to that of the male. The bill is duller than the male’s, but similar in pattern.

Redheads dive to feed on seeds, rhizomes, tubers of pondweeds, wild celery, water lilies, grasses and wild rice. They also feed on mollusks, aquatic insects, and small fish.

Redhead populations have remained relatively steady since 1955, hovering in the 400,000 to 800,000 range. As of the 2009 survey, there were more than 1 million redheads, a plateau that was reached in 2007 (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 2009).

A significant migration corridor extends from southwestern Manitoba and southeastern Idaho to the Gulf Coast. In addition, some redheads migrate eastward from the northern prairies to the Great Lakes, and then onward to the Chesapeake Bay and Florida. It is estimated that 80 percent of the North American redhead population winters in the Laguna Madre of Texas and Mexico. Smaller numbers of redheads winter in Apalachee Bay, Fla., along the Chandeleur Islands, Yucatan Peninsula and the Atlantic coast from Rhode Island to Florida.

Naked Redhead Men

Its been a while since Ive been out looking for redheads of gay porn. Lucky there are some old standbys where I know new guys will be found. Chaos Men is awesome at keeping the redhead lineup growing. It was awesome seeing one of there recent additions, Brant.

Brant has a boyish face that makes him look younger than he is. His hairless chest and stomach dont help although the nipple rings kind of give him a bad boy feel. The great part of Brant comes when he lowers his pants and underwear. He keeps his pubes trimmed but intact. I do love those red pubes! While he shaves his ball sack, his ass crack is lined with a thick crimson fuzz. He gives us a few close up views of that oh so sweet ass too. It doesnt take much work before Brant is totally hard and the wow factor hits. If you like big dicks, Brant doesnt disappoint!

Brant is new so he only has two scenes online so far. His second time around he gets a blowjob while tied up (edge) and shoots a huge load with a big smile on his face. lets hope that they can convince this hottie to return for some more man on man action. Ill be waiting.

The smew (Mergellus albellus) is a species of duck, and is the only living member of the genus Mergellus. Mergellus is a diminutive of Mergus and albellus is from Latin albus “white”.[2] This genus is closely related to Mergus and is sometimes included in it, though it might be closer to the goldeneyes (Bucephala).[3] The smew has interbred with the common goldeneye (B. clangula).[4]

A seaduck fossil from the Middle Miocene shows that birds similar to smew existed up to 13million years ago. The extant species dates back to the Pleistocene.

The drake smew, with its ‘cracked ice’ and ‘panda’ appearance, is unmistakable, and looks very black-and-white in flight. The females and immature males are grey birds with chestnut foreheads and crowns, and can be confused at a distance with the ruddy duck; they are often known as “redhead” smew. It has oval white wing-patches in flight. The smew’s bill has a hooked tip and serrated edges, which help it catch fish when it dives for them.

The smew is 3844cm (1517in) long.[4]

This species breeds in the northern taiga of Europe and Asia. It needs trees for breeding. The smew lives on fish-rich lakes and slow rivers. As a migrant, it leaves its breeding areas and winters on sheltered coasts or inland lakes of the Baltic Sea, the Black Sea, northern Germany and the Low Countries, with a small number reaching Great Britain (for example, at Dungeness), mostly at regular sites. Vagrants have been recorded in North America. On lakes it prefers areas around the edges, often under small trees. The smew breeds in May and lays 69 cream-colored eggs. It nests in tree holes, such as old woodpecker nests. It is a shy bird and flushes easily when disturbed.

The smew is one of the species to which the Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds (AEWA) applies. It is not considered threatened on the IUCN Red List, though its population is decreasing.[1]

An unnamed fossil seaduck, known from a humerus found in the Middle Miocene Sajvlgyi Formation (Late Badenian, 1312 million years ago) of Mtraszls, Hungary, was assigned to Mergus. However, the authors included the smew therein, and consequently, the bone is more properly assigned to Mergellusespecially as it was more similar to a smew’s than to the Bucephala remains also found at the site. It is sometimes argued[5] that the Mtraszls fossil is too old to represent any of the modern seaduck genera, but apparently these were all well-distinct even back then.[6]

Fossils from the earliest Pleistocene found in England indicate that the living species was extant 1.5 to 2.0 million years ago.[5]

Red hair – Wikipedia

Red hair occurs naturally in 12% of the human population. It occurs more frequently (26%) in people of northern or western European ancestry, and less frequently in other populations. Red hair appears most commonly in people with two copies of a recessive allele on chromosome 16 which produces an altered version of the MC1R protein.[citation needed]

Red hair varies in hues from a deep burgundy or bright copper (reddish-brown or auburn) through to burnt orange or red-orange and strawberry blond. It is characterized by high levels of the reddish pigment pheomelanin and relatively low levels of the dark pigment eumelanin. It is associated with fair skin color, lighter eye colors (gray, blue, green, and hazel), freckles, and sensitivity to ultraviolet light.[1]

Cultural reactions have varied from ridicule to admiration; many common stereotypes exist regarding redheads and they are often portrayed as fiery-tempered.

The term redhead has been in use since at least 1510.[2]

Several accounts by Greek writers mention redheaded people. A fragment by the poet Xenophanes describes the Thracians as blue-eyed and red-haired.[4]

In Asia, red hair has been found among the ancient Tocharians, who occupied the Tarim Basin in what is now the northwesternmost province of China. Caucasian Tarim mummies have been found with red hair dating to the 2nd millennium BC.[5]

Reddish-brown (auburn) hair is also found amongst some Polynesians, and is especially common in some tribes and family groups. In Polynesian culture reddish hair has traditionally been seen as a sign of descent from high-ranking ancestors and a mark of rulership.[6][7]

Red hair is most commonly found at the northern and western fringes of Europe;[8] it is centered around populations in the British Isles. Redheads today are commonly associated with the Celtic Nations[8] and to a far lesser extent the Germanic peoples.

Over the years there have been a number of studies measuring the percentage of redheads within the UK and Ireland. Exact figures, and methods, vary, but they all are in agreement that the highest percentages in the world are within these isles. England has a red hair prevalence of around 4%, with a gene carrying population of 28.5%.[9]

In Ireland, the percentage of population with red hair is estimated to be at around 10%.[10][11][12] According to Britain’s DNA, 34.7% of the Irish population carry the genes for red hair, although this doesn’t directly translate proportionally into births of red-haired children.[13]

Scotland also has a very high percentage with around 6% of the population having red hair.[9][14] Previously it was estimated that red hair occurrence in Scotland was around 13%, which had been widely reported in reliable media sources.[15] However, Dr. Jim Wilson of Britain’s DNA study used a sample of 2,343 people, and found red hair occurrence of 6% in Scotland, with 35% overall carrying the gene and Edinburgh having the highest proportion of gene carriers at 40%.[9][14][16] The largest ever study of hair colour in Scotland, which analysed over 500,000 people in 1907, found the percentage of Scots with red hair to be 5.3%.[17]

38% of Welsh people carry the red haired gene.[9] A 1956 study of hair colour among British army recruits found higher levels of red hair in Wales and the English Border counties.[18]

Carleton Coon’s 1939 book The Races of Europe stated that rufosity (reddish hair) often occurred in Montenegrins.[19][20][21]

In Italy, red hair is found at a frequency of 0.57% of the total population, without variation in frequency across the different regions of the country.[22] In Sardinia, red hair is found at a frequency of 0.24% of the population.[22]Victorian era ethnographers considered the Udmurt people of the Volga to be “the most red-headed men in the world”,[23] a claim which has a solid basis even today, as the Volga region has more redheads per population than anywhere else in the world with the exception of Ireland.[24]

The Berber populations of Morocco[25] and northern Algeria have occasional redheads. Red hair frequency is especially significant among the Riffians from Morocco and Kabyles from Algeria,[26][27][28] respectively. The Queen of Morocco, Lalla Salma wife of king Mohammed VI, has red hair. Abd ar-Rahman I also had red hair, his mother being a Christian Berber slave.

Red hair is also found amongst the Ashkenazi Jewish populations.[29] In 1903, 5.6% of Polish Jews had red hair.[30] Other studies have found that 3.69% of Jewish women overall were found to have red hair, but around 10.9% of all Jewish men have red beards.[31] In European culture, prior to the 20th century, red hair was often seen as a stereotypically Jewish trait: during the Spanish Inquisition, all those with red hair were identified as Jewish.[32] In Italy, red hair was associated with Italian Jews, and Judas was traditionally depicted as red-haired in Italian and Spanish art.[33] Writers from Shakespeare to Dickens would identify Jewish characters by giving them red hair.[34] The stereotype that red hair is Jewish remains in parts of Eastern Europe and Russia.[35]

In Asia, genetic red hair is rare, but can reddish-brown (auburn) hair can be found in the Levant (Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Israel and Palestine), in Turkey, in Caucasia, in Northern Kazakhstan, among Uighurs and among Indo-Iranians. The use of henna on hair and skin for various reasons is common in Asia. When henna is used on hair it dyes the hair to different shades of red.[36][37]

Emigration from Europe has multiplied the population of red haired humans in the Americas, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. In the United States, it is estimated that 26% of the population has red hair. This would give the U.S. the largest population of redheads in the world, at 6 to 18 million, compared to approximately 420,000 in Ireland and 300,000 in Scotland.[9]

The pigment pheomelanin gives red hair its distinctive color. Red hair has far more of the pigment pheomelanin than it has of the dark pigment eumelanin.

The genetics of red hair, discovered in 1997, appear to be associated with the melanocortin-1 receptor (MC1R), which is found on chromosome 16. Red hair is associated with fair skin color because low concentrations of eumelanin throughout the body of those with red hair caused by a MC1R mutation can cause both. The lower melanin concentration in skin confers the advantage that a sufficient concentration of important Vitamin D can be produced under low light conditions. However, when UV-radiation is strong (as in regions close to the equator) the lower concentration of melanin leads to several medical disadvantages, such as a higher risk of skin cancer.

The MC1R recessive variant gene that gives people red hair generally results in skin that is unable to tan. Because of the natural tanning reaction to the sun’s ultraviolet light and high amounts of pheomelanin in the skin, freckles are a common but not all-inclusive feature of red-haired people. Eighty percent of redheads have an MC1R gene variant,[1] and the prevalence of these alleles is highest in Scotland and Ireland.

Red hair can originate from several changes on the MC1R-gene. If one of these changes is present on both chromosomes then the respective individual is likely to have red hair. This type of inheritance is described as an autosomal recessive mode of inheritance. Even if both parents do not have red hair themselves, both can be carriers for the gene and have a redheaded child.

Genetic studies of dizygotic (fraternal) twins indicate that the MC1R gene is not solely responsible for the red hair phenotype; unidentified modifier genes exist, making variance in the MC1R gene necessary, but not always sufficient, for red hair production.[38]

The alleles Arg151Cys, Arg160Trp, Asp294His, and Arg142His on MC1R are shown to be recessives for the red hair phenotype.[39] The gene HCL2 (also called RHC or RHA) on chromosome 4 may also be related to red hair.[40][41]

In species other than primates, red hair has different genetic origins and mechanisms.

Red hair is the rarest natural hair color in humans. The non-tanning skin associated with red hair may have been advantageous in far-northern climates where sunlight is scarce. Studies by Bodmer and Cavalli-Sforza (1976) hypothesized that lighter skin pigmentation prevents rickets in colder climates by encouraging higher levels of Vitamin D production and also allows the individual to retain heat better than someone with darker skin.[42] In 2000, Harding et al. concluded that red hair is not the result of positive selection but of a lack of negative selection. In Africa, for example, red hair is selected against because high levels of sun harm untanned skin. However, in Northern Europe this does not happen, so redheads can become more common through genetic drift.[39]

Estimates on the original occurrence of the currently active gene for red hair vary from 20,000 to 100,000 years ago.[43][44]

A DNA study has concluded that some Neanderthals also had red hair, although the mutation responsible for this differs from that which causes red hair in modern humans.[45]

A 2007 report in The Courier-Mail, which cited the National Geographic magazine and unnamed “geneticists”, said that red hair is likely to die out in the near future.[46] Other blogs and news sources ran similar stories that attributed the research to the magazine or the “Oxford Hair Foundation”. However, a HowStuffWorks article says that the foundation was funded by hair-dye maker Procter & Gamble, and that other experts had dismissed the research as either lacking in evidence or simply bogus. The National Geographic article in fact states “while redheads may decline, the potential for red isn’t going away”.[47]

Red hair is caused by a relatively rare recessive gene, the expression of which can skip generations. It is not likely to disappear at any time in the foreseeable future.[47]

Melanin in the skin aids UV tolerance through suntanning, but fair-skinned persons lack the levels of melanin needed to prevent UV-induced DNA-damage. Studies have shown that red hair alleles in MC1R increase freckling and decrease tanning ability.[48] It has been found that Europeans who are heterozygous for red hair exhibit increased sensitivity to UV radiation.[49]

Red hair and its relationship to UV sensitivity are of interest to many melanoma researchers. Sunshine can both be good and bad for a person’s health and the different alleles on MC1R represent these adaptations. It also has been shown that individuals with pale skin are highly susceptible to a variety of skin cancers such as melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma.[50][51]

Two studies have demonstrated that people with red hair have different sensitivity to pain compared to people with other hair colors. One study found that people with red hair are more sensitive to thermal pain (associated with naturally occurring low vitamin K levels),[52] while another study concluded that redheads are less sensitive to pain from multiple modalities, including noxious stimuli such as electrically induced pain.[53][54][55]

Researchers have found that people with red hair require greater amounts of anesthetic.[56] Other research publications have concluded that women with naturally red hair require less of the painkiller pentazocine than do either women of other hair colors or men of any hair color. A study showed women with red hair had a greater analgesic response to that particular pain medication than men.[57] A follow-up study by the same group showed that men and women with red hair had a greater analgesic response to morphine-6-glucuronide.[55]

The unexpected relationship of hair color to pain tolerance appears to exist because redheads have a mutation in a hormone receptor that can apparently respond to at least two types of hormones: the pigmentation-driving melanocyte-stimulating hormone (MSH), and the pain-relieving endorphins. (Both derive from the same precursor molecule, POMC, and are structurally similar.) Specifically, redheads have a mutated melanocortin-1 receptor (MC1R) gene that produces an altered receptor for MSH.[58] Melanocytes, the cells that produce pigment in skin and hair, use the MC1R to recognize and respond to MSH from the anterior pituitary gland. Melanocyte-stimulating hormone normally stimulates melanocytes to make black eumelanin, but if the melanocytes have a mutated receptor, they will make reddish pheomelanin instead. MC1R also occurs in the brain, where it is one of a large set of POMC-related receptors that are apparently involved not only in responding to MSH, but also in responses to endorphins and possibly other POMC-derived hormones.[58] Though the details are not clearly understood, it appears that there is some crosstalk between the POMC hormones; this may explain the link between red hair and pain tolerance.

There is little or no evidence to support the belief that people with red hair have a higher chance than people with other hair colors to hemorrhage or suffer other bleeding complications.[59][60] One study, however, reports a link between red hair and a higher rate of bruising.[60]

Most red hair is caused by the MC1R gene and is non-pathological. However, in rare cases red hair can be associated with disease or genetic disorder:

In various times and cultures, red hair has been prized, feared, and ridiculed.

A common belief about redheads is that they have fiery tempers and sharp tongues. In Anne of Green Gables, a character says of Anne Shirley, the redheaded heroine, that “her temper matches her hair”, while in The Catcher in the Rye, Holden Caulfield remarks that “People with red hair are supposed to get mad very easily, but Allie [his dead brother] never did, and he had very red hair.”

During the early stages of modern medicine, red hair was thought to be a sign of a sanguine temperament.[63] In the Indian medicinal practice of Ayurveda, redheads are seen as most likely to have a Pitta temperament.

Another belief is that redheads are highly sexed; for example, Jonathan Swift satirizes redhead stereotypes in part four of Gulliver’s Travels, “A Voyage to the Country of the Houyhnhnms,” when he writes that: “It is observed that the red-haired of both sexes are more libidinous and mischievous than the rest, whom yet they much exceed in strength and activity.” Swift goes on to write that “neither was the hair of this brute [a Yahoo] of a red colour (which might have been some excuse for an appetite a little irregular) but black as a sloe”.[64] Such beliefs were given a veneer of scientific credibility in the 19th century by Cesare Lombroso and Guglielmo Ferrero. They concluded that red hair was associated with crimes of lust, and claimed that 48% of “criminal women” were redheads.[65]

In the novel and film Red-Headed Woman, the titular protagonist is a sexually aggressive home-wrecker who frequently throws violent temper tantrums.

Queen Elizabeth I of England was a redhead, and during the Elizabethan era in England, red hair was fashionable for women. In modern times, red hair is subject to fashion trends; celebrities such as Nicole Kidman, Alyson Hannigan, Marcia Cross, Christina Hendricks, Emma Stone and Geri Halliwell can boost sales of red hair dye.[citation needed]

Sometimes, red hair darkens as people get older, becoming a more brownish color or losing some of its vividness. This leads some to associate red hair with youthfulness, a quality that is generally considered desirable. In several countries such as India, Iran, Bangladesh and Pakistan, henna and saffron are used on hair to give it a bright red appearance.[66]

Many painters have exhibited a fascination with red hair. The hair color “Titian” takes its name from the artist Titian, who often painted women with red hair. Early Renaissance artist Sandro Botticelli’s famous painting The Birth of Venus depicts the mythological goddess Venus as a redhead. Other painters notable for their redheads include the Pre-Raphaelites, Edmund Leighton, Modigliani,[67] and Gustav Klimt.[68]

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes story “The Red-Headed League” (1891) involves a man who is asked to become a member of a mysterious group of red-headed people. The 1943 film DuBarry Was a Lady featured red-heads Lucille Ball and Red Skelton in Technicolor.

Red hair was thought to be a mark of a beastly sexual desire and moral degeneration. A savage red-haired man is portrayed in the fable by Grimm brothers (Der Eisenhans) as the spirit of the forest of iron. Theophilus Presbyter describes how the blood of a red-haired young man is necessary to create gold from copper, in a mixture with the ashes of a basilisk.[69]

Montague Summers, in his translation of the Malleus Maleficarum,[70] notes that red hair and green eyes were thought to be the sign of a witch, a werewolf or a vampire during the Middle Ages;

Those whose hair is red, of a certain peculiar shade, are unmistakably vampires. It is significant that in ancient Egypt, as Manetho tells us, human sacrifices were offered at the grave of Osiris, and the victims were red-haired men who were burned, their ashes being scattered far and wide by winnowing-fans. It is held by some authorities that this was done to fertilize the fields and produce a bounteous harvest, red-hair symbolizing the golden wealth of the corn. But these men were called Typhonians, and were representatives not of Osiris but of his evil rival Typhon, whose hair was red.

During the Spanish Inquisition, people of red hair were identified as Jewish and isolated for persecution.[32] In Medieval Italy and Spain, red hair was associated with the heretical nature of Jews and their rejection of Jesus, and thus Judas Iscariot was commonly depicted as red-haired in Italian and Spanish art.[33] Writers from Shakespeare to Dickens would identify Jewish characters by giving them red hair, with red-hair being given by the authors to villainous Jewish characters such as Shylock and Fagin.[34] The antisemitic association persisted into modern times in Soviet Russia.[35] The medieval prejudice against red-hair may have derived from the Ancient biblical tradition, in relation to biblical figures such as Esau and King David. The Ancient historian Josephus would mistranslate the Hebrew Torah to describe the more positive figure of King David as ‘golden haired’, in contrast to the negative figure of Esau, even though the original Hebrew Torah implies that both King David and Esau had ‘fiery red hair’.[71]

In his 1885 book I Say No, Wilkie Collins wrote “The prejudice against habitual silence, among the lower order of the people, is almost as inveterate as the prejudice against red hair.”

In his 1895 memoir and history The Gurneys of Earlham, Augustus John Cuthbert Hare described an incident of harassment: “The second son, John, was born in 1750. As a boy he had bright red hair, and it is amusingly recorded that one day in the streets of Norwich a number of boys followed him, pointing to his red locks and saying, “Look at that boy; he’s got a bonfire on the top of his head,” and that John Gurney was so disgusted that he went to a barber’s, had his head shaved, and went home in a wig. He grew up, however, a remarkably attractive-looking young man.”[72]

In British English, the words “ginger” or “ginga” are sometimes used to describe red-headed people (and are at times considered insulting),[73] with terms such as “gingerphobia”[74] and “gingerism”[75] used by the British media. In Britain, redheads are also sometimes referred to disparagingly as “carrot tops” and “carrot heads”. (The comedian “Carrot Top” uses this stage name.) “Gingerism” has been compared to racism, although this is widely disputed, and bodies such as the UK Commission for Racial Equality do not monitor cases of discrimination and hate crimes against redheads.[75]

Nonetheless, individuals and families in Britain are targeted for harassment and violence because of their hair colour. In 2003, a 20-year-old was stabbed in the back for “being ginger”.[76] In 2007, a UK woman won an award from a tribunal after being sexually harassed and receiving abuse because of her red hair;[77] in the same year, a family in Newcastle upon Tyne, was forced to move twice after being targeted for abuse and hate crime on account of their red hair.[78] In May 2009, a schoolboy committed suicide after being bullied for having red hair.[79] In 2013, a fourteen-year-old boy in Lincoln had his right arm broken and his head stamped on by three men who attacked him “just because he had red hair”. The three men were subsequently jailed for a combined total of ten years and one month for the attack.[80]

This prejudice has been satirised on a number of TV shows. The British comedian Catherine Tate (herself a redhead) appeared as a red-haired character in a running sketch of her series The Catherine Tate Show. The sketch saw fictional character Sandra Kemp, who was forced to seek solace in a refuge for ginger people because she had been ostracised from society.[81] The British comedy Bo’ Selecta! (starring redhead Leigh Francis) featured a spoof documentary which involved a caricature of Mick Hucknall presenting a show in which celebrities (played by themselves) dyed their hair red for a day and went about daily life being insulted by people. (Hucknall, who says that he has repeatedly faced prejudice or been described as ugly on account of his hair colour, argues that Gingerism should be described as a form of racism.[82][83]) Comedian Tim Minchin, himself a redhead, also covered the topic in his song “Prejudice”.[84]

Film and television programmes often portray school bullies as having red hair.[85]

The pejorative use of the word “ginger” and related discrimination was used to illustrate a point about racism and prejudice in the “Ginger Kids”, “Le Petit Tourette”, “It’s a Jersey Thing” and “Fatbeard” episodes of South Park. However, children with red hair are often themselves targeted by bullies; “Somebody with ginger hair will stand out from the crowd,” says anti-bullying expert Louise Burfitt-Dons.[86]

In Australian slang, redheads are often nicknamed “Blue” or “Bluey”.[87] More recently, they have been referred to as “rangas” (a word derived from the red-haired ape, the orangutan), sometimes with derogatory connotations.[88] The word “rufus” has been used in both Australian and British slang to refer to red-headed people;[89] based on a variant of rufous, a reddish-brown color.

In November 2008 social networking website Facebook received criticism after a ‘Kick a Ginger’ group, which aimed to establish a “National Kick a Ginger Day” on 20 November, acquired almost 5,000 members. A 14-year-old boy from Vancouver who ran the Facebook group was subjected to an investigation by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police for possible hate crimes.[90]

In December 2009 British supermarket chain Tesco withdrew a Christmas card which had the image of a child with red hair sitting on the lap of Santa Claus, and the words: “Santa loves all kids. Even ginger ones” after customers complained the card was offensive.[91]

In October 2010, Harriet Harman, the former Equality Minister in the British government under Labour, faced accusations of prejudice after she described the red-haired Treasury secretary Danny Alexander as a “ginger rodent”.[92] Alexander responded to the insult by stating that he was “proud to be ginger”.[93] Harman was subsequently forced to apologise for the comment, after facing criticism for prejudice against a minority group.[94]

In September 2011, Cryos International, one of the world’s largest sperm banks, announced that it would no longer accept donations from red-haired men due to low demand from women seeking artificial insemination.[95]

The term ang mo (Chinese: ; pinyin: hng mo; Peh-e-j: ng-mo) in Hokkien (Min Nan) Chinese means “red-haired”,[96] and is used in Malaysia and Singapore to refer to white people. The epithet is sometimes rendered as ang mo kui () meaning “red-haired devil”, similar to the Cantonese term gweilo (“foreign devil”). Thus it is viewed as racist and derogatory by some people.[97] Others, however, maintain it is acceptable.[98] Despite this ambiguity, it is a widely used term. It appears, for instance, in Singaporean newspapers such as The Straits Times,[99] and in television programmes and films.

The Chinese characters for ang mo are the same as those in the historical Japanese term Km (), which was used during the Edo period (16031868) as an epithet for Dutch or Northern European people. It primarily referred to Dutch traders who were the only Europeans allowed to trade with Japan during Sakoku, its 200-year period of isolation.[100]

An annual festival in the Netherlands, Redhead Day, attracts red-haired participants from around the world. The festival is paid for by the local government in Breda, a city in the south east of the Netherlands.[101] The festival in the Netherlands attracts participants from over 80 different countries. The festival began in 2005, when Dutch painter Bart Rouwenhorst decided he wanted to paint 15 redheads. Today, the festival includes music, fashion shows, art exhibitions and a picnic[102]

The Irish Redhead Convention, held in late August in County Cork, claims to be a global celebration and attracts people from several continents. The celebrations include crowning the ginger King and Queen, competitions for the best red eyebrows and most freckles per square inch, orchestral concerts and carrot throwing competitions.[103]

A smaller red-hair day festival is held since 2013 by the UK’s anti bullying alliance in London, with the aim of instilling pride in having red-hair.[104]

Since 2014, a red-hair event is held in Israel, at Kibbutz Gezer (Carrot), held for the local Israeli red hair community,[105] including both Ashkenazi and Mizrahi red-heads.[106] However, the number of attendees has to be restricted due to the risk of rocket attacks, leading to anger in the red-hair community.[107] The organizers state; “The event is a good thing for many redheads, who had been embarrassed about being redheads before.[107]

The first and only festival for red heads in the United States, was launched in 2015. Held in Highwood, Illinois, Chicago, Redhead Days, draws participants from across the United States.[108]

In the Iliad, Achilles’ hair is described as [109] (ksanths), usually translated as blonde, or golden[110] but sometimes as red or tawny.[111][112] His son Neoptolemus also bears the name Pyrrhus, a possible reference to his own red hair.[113]

The Norse god Thor is usually described as having red hair.[114][bettersourceneeded]

The Hebrew word usually translated “ruddy” or “reddish-brown” (admoni , from the root ADM , see also Adam and Edom)[115][116][117][118] was used to describe both Esau and David.

Early artistic representations of Mary Magdalene usually depict her as having long flowing red hair, although a description of her hair color was never mentioned in the Bible, and it is possible the color is an effect caused by pigment degradation in the ancient paint.

Judas Iscariot is also represented with red hair in Spanish culture[119][120] and in the works of William Shakespeare,[121] reinforcing the negative stereotype.

Famous Cartoon Redheads | ReelRundown

After I finally got around to posting my “Famous Redheads Throughout History” article, I got to thinking. I knew that there was something missing. But what was it? I wasn’t sure at the time.

Several people made suggestions, and left great comments, concerning people who had been left out, but still, it felt like something still needed to be done. I was at a loss. You ever get that feeling? You are getting ready to do something, and you know that you forgot something. You leave the house with a feeling like you forgot about something important. The feeling is a little like that. I really hate that feeling, and it will nag at me until I have figured it out.

Then, last night, as I watched hour after hour of Family Guy, it hit me! Cartoons!! Cartoon redheads!! I was leaving out a very important group of redheads that have been a part of my life since childhood! So, naturally, that leads me here. The many ginger-ific cartoon characters and a couple of fictional non-cartoons. You will see what I mean.

*After originally publishing this article, I have received numerous comments. Most of them suggesting additions. It seems as if I have forgotten so many characters. I am sorry for that. They are being added, and an additional article is in the works to cover the overwhelming number of responses I have received.

We all remember those classic cartoons. The ones like The Flintstones and The Jetsons, that have been around forever. I admit, I watched a lot of classic cartoons when I was a kid. I sometimes still do. I don’t see anything wrong with that. I have even managed to share some of them with my own daughters.

Having said that, let’s take a look at some of them.

The Flintstones gave us not one, but two, beautiful, cartoon redheads. The smart and patient, Wilma Flintstone, who often had her hands full with her bumbling, not-so-bright husband, Fred. She also had Pebbles, another redhead, to tend to. Pebbles was an adorable, bubbly little girl, who already had Bam-Bam fawning over her.

The Jetsons gave us Jane Jetson, futuristic and classy. She too, had a lot to deal with. A fumbling husband who often got himself into trouble, a teenage daughter and a very bright son. Not to mention Astro, the family’s beloved dog. At least Jane had the good luck to have a robot maid to help her out. I’m still waiting on my robot maid. I thought they would have had those by now. Unfortunately, all we have are weird, little robot vacuums.

Let’s not forget a classic comic strip of iconic status. I am talking about The Peanuts cartoon here. Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the gang. I can’t count the number of times I have watched all the Charlie Brown holiday specials. The Christmas one is my favorite. But, do you remember the girl Charlie pined over year after year? She didn’t even have a name, and she was rarely seen. “The little red haired girl”; that’s all she was ever called, if memory serves me. Such mystery.

As far as classics go, this is a popular favorite even today. Besides a variety of television shows and animated movies, there have also been two live action movies involving this character. Who am I talking about? Daphne Blake from Scooby-Doo, of course! Daphne, and the rest of the Scooby Gang, have been solving mysteries and chasing ghosts for many, many years. She has held up surprisingly well.

A few classic cartoon redheads I seem to have forgotten are Raggedy Ann and Andy. That adorable little rag doll brother and sister team. They are so cute!! I don’t know how I forgot about them. I’m pretty sure I had a Raggedy Ann doll when I was little.

Also left off the original list is Josie, from Josie and The Pussycats. Kind of a take off Scooby-Doo, with a trio of girl rockers getting into all sorts of interesting situations. It was another fun cartoon that was also made into a live-action movie several years ago. Warner Brothers also brought us the untamed excitement of one Yosemite Sam. He always made me laugh as a small child.

I do admit. I watch a lot of kids’ shows. I have a young daughter, and another not-so-young daughter, and they both love cartoons. I get to see a wide range of children’s television thanks to them. Some of it by choice, most of it… not so much. One of them is just breaking into the pre-school aged shows, and the other has moved onto other things.

She used to be a huge fan of Playhouse Disney, on the Disney Channel. She was always asking me if she could watch one show or another. She is a big fan of Winnie the Pooh, and there was a new incarnation of that show on The Disney Channel when my oldest was little. With the help of a little girl named, Darby, Pooh and Tigger solve mysteries. Darby is a cute little cartoon redhead, and the show was decent. I just miss the classic Winnie the Pooh that I remember.

Same thing goes for Strawberry Shortcake. She has completely changed from when I was a kid. Her hair isn’t even red anymore. For some reason, it’s now pink. She wears pink, not red, and she looks nothing like the Strawberry Shortcake from my childhood. It makes me sad in a way, but I guess in time, all things change. LOL!

Rugrats is another show that has been around for a while. My sister used to watch Rugrats when she was younger, and it’s still on today, in re-runs, though the kids have grown up some. Chuckie is the scared best friend of Tommy on the show. With his glasses and spiky red hair, he fits the classic mold of redheaded children as goofy, nerdy or strange. Still, he is likeable and sweet.

As my daughter has gotten older, she has moved on to other cartoon shows, aimed at a slightly older audience. Like the crime fighting, Kim Possible, who saves the world, and goes to cheer-leading practice all in the same day. I actually liked Kim Possible; it was kind of cute and funny, and it sends a positive message to kids.

Other shows I have come across, thanks to her, are Dexter’s Laboratory, with little, redheaded genius, Dexter, who is constantly at odds with his sister, Dee-Dee, hiding in his lab, creating various strange inventions.

Or The Powerpuff Girls, with spunky Blossom, leading the group of super-powered little girls, in an effort to stop the plots of villains of many different sorts.

It seems that I have forgotten more in this category than in any other. Where to start? I could double the size of this section alone!

Let’s start with Phineas and Ferb. My daughter loves this show, and I just became aware of it a couple years ago, when she asked to watch it. She now has a Candace doll, and we watch the show together. Not only is Phineas a redhead, so are his sister, Candace, and their mother. The show is sweet and funny, and really sparks the imagination. Even my husband will watch it with me.

Another imaginative show with a redheaded character is Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends. The character, Frankie helps out at the home, taking care of all sorts of strange and wonderful imaginary friends that have been abandoned or left behind by their children. Sadly, this show is a lot harder to find than it used to be. The few seasons that they made of the show can be found on Netflix, though.

Movies…I love movies. I will watch just about anything. I have seen terrible movies, incredible movies, and some of the silliest movies ever made. Not too often have there been movies involving cartoon redheads. Yes, there have been live action movies that were based on cartoons, that had redheaded characters. That’s not what I mean.

There are a couple of exceptions. One is the sexy, Jessica Rabbit from Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Long, flowing red hair, curves everywhere, and a sexy, smokey voice; she had more than just Roger’s cartoon heart thumping in that movie. Even flesh and blood characters were not immune to her…charms.

Another notable example is the sassy and tough Princess Fiona, from the Shrek movies. Whether she is a human princess or a big, green ogre, she comes across as strong and confident; not the normal damsel in distress that is characteristic of most fairy tales.

Of course, my favorite is the adorable, Ariel from The Little Mermaid. I still wish I could be her. I loved that movie growing up, and I often watch the cartoon show on the Disney Channel with my daughter. She loves Ariel, as well, and has several dolls and various toys to prove it. She will always be my favorite cartoon redhead.

Another beloved redhead character from the movies was Anastasia. I loved this movie! Even though I was a bit older when it came out, my mom still bought me an Anastasia doll. It was partly as a joke, because my name is short for Anastasia. I recently introduced my daughter to the movie, and she loves it as much as I do.

I don’t read comic books, and I honestly know very little about them, so this took some work. I apologize if I leave any comic book redheads out of my list. Please feel free to make suggestions as to redheads I can add to this section or others.

Let’s start with Batman. No, Batman is not a redhead. I know that. I am talking about the sexy villain, Poison Ivy, with her wild, flaming red hair and a great affinity for plant life. She manages to seduce every warm-blooded man she can in an attempt to get what she wants.

Now, let’s make the leap from Batman to Spiderman. Peter Parker, better known as Spiderman, was in love with a redhead. Of course he was! With red hair, and the name Mary Jane, Spiderman was helpless to resist. Mary Jane shows the sweeter, more innocent side of comic book redheads.

Not so sweet and innocent, but still on the side of good, is Jean Grey, from the X-Men. With her amazing mutant powers, she fights evil, and defends other mutants like herself. She is a strong, independent character, fully capable of taking care of herself.

There have also been male comic characters with red hair. The most notable example is Archie from the Archie comics. Endlessly torn between the adorable and sweet, blonde, Betty and the difficult, but alluring, brunette, Veronica, Archie was engaged in an ongoing struggle that plagues most men.

The only non-comic book addition to this section is the one, the only, Alfred E. Newman. That name may sound familiar to some of you, but where he comes from, should sound familiar to most of you. He was the goofy looking, gap-toothed, cover boy of Mad Magazine.

Added due to suggestions are Brenda Starr, from the comic strip, and Little Orphan Annie.

I was not aware of Brenda Starr, but I knew of Little Orphan Annie, but not that there was a comic strip. I was only aware of the movie musical, and broadway play. Sorry about those. They have been faithfully added now.

While most cartoons are seen as kid’s stuff, cartoons are quickly becoming socially acceptable forms of entertainment for the adults of the world. From baby boomers to Gen X-er’s, cartoons remind us of our youth, but these cartoons are nothing like the Saturday morning cartoons we faithfully watched every day. These tackle more adult topics, full of adult language, violence and sexuality.

Despite what the opening song says, Family Guy is full of violence and sexual jokes. That doesn’t mean it isn’t a great show. And where would Family Guy be without the sexy and smart mom, Lois Griffin??

The cartoon MILF, as she is often referred to, not only gets Peter’s blood pumping. She is also on the receiving end of unrequited love from the talking family dog, Brian, and the stalker-like behavior of everyone’s favorite pervert, Quagmire. She definitely deserves the attention!

One of my favorite shows, now quite absent from the television programing, only to return again, and is now leaving again, is Futurama. It’s from the same people who created The Simpsons, but never took off the same way. It does have a faithful, cult following, though. T

he show centers around a man by the name of Fry, who after a pizza delivery gone wrong, ended up in the future. Fry is what you expect from a male redheaded character. He’s not too bright, he is socially awkward, and like most of the youth of my time, spends a lot of time watching TV and playing video games. Yet, somehow, he is still endearing.

Of course, I seem to have forgotten one of my favorite redheads! Partly to blame is the fact that more often than not, he is wearing his trademark hat. Of course I am talking about Kyle from South Park.

I love South Park. They make fun of everything that people take so seriously. While it may be disturbing and vulgar at times, ok, most of the time, it is a good reminder to not take life so seriously, and we should all be able to laugh at ourselves sometimes.

The last redhead in this category comes from a lesser known show that used to be on Comedy Central. That show is Drawn Together, and the character is Princess Clara. Draw Together is an animated parody of reality shows like Survivor and Big Brother.

Princess Clara closely resembles a princess out of a Walt Disney movie, and sounds that way, as well. With her super conservative views, and various other interesting characteristics, she often butts heads with the other characters.

Red-Hot Facts About Women with Red Hair | Divine Caroline

It can be hard to grow up with red hair, constantly getting called names like ginger and carrot top. Having the rarest hair color might make a redhead feel awkward, but it turns out that there are some special attributes that make them pretty unique. Maybe theyre the ones who have more fun. At the very least, their hair doesnt go gray.

The Rarity of Red In the late 1990s, scientists discovered that gene mutation causes red headedness. Specifically, its a variant of the melanocortin 1 receptor (MC1R), one of the key proteins that determines hair and skin color. The mutated gene is recessive, so in order for someone to have red hair, she has to inherit two copies of the gene, one from each parent. Lots of people, especially those with Northern European ancestry, carry one copy of MC1R, but relatively few carry the two copies required for flaming tresses. Red hair can occur in any ethnicity, but the greatest concentration of redheads originates in Northern Europe, near the U.K. Scotland has the highest percentage of natural redheads, with 13 percent and Ireland is a close second, with 10 percent. Only about 2 percent of people in the United States have naturally red hair.

If red hair is so rare, why does it occur so often in the same geographic area? Some biologists think that its an evolutionary adaptation. In cold and dark climates, fair coloring lets the skin absorb more light, which encourages the body to retain heat and produce more vitamin D. Also, for most of human history, people didnt stray very far from the place where they were born and intermarried with people with similar genetic traits. When there were plenty of people carrying the gene, their children were very likely to get two copies of the mutated MC1R. Now that people migrate more, carriers of MC1R are more likely to intermarry with non-carriers. Thats good for genetic diversity, but maybe not so good for the survival of redheads in general.

For the past few years, theres been a rumor that redheads are going extinct, but thats not exactly true. Because of intermarriage, the numbers are declining, but there will always be redheads, because there will always be carriers of the MC1R gene. It might be less likely that one carrier will meet another and have redheaded children, but its always a possibility. In fact, its not so far-fetched to imagine a future where everyone knows exactly whats in his or her genome, and MC1R carriers can choose to have children with fellow carriers, maximizing the likelihood that their children will have red hair.

A Redheaded Knockout? The mutated MC1R gene has some other surprising effects. Although doctors and medical practitioners have long speculated that redheads were harder to sedate, a recent study from the University of Louisville determined that redheads really do require more anesthesia during surgery.

The researchers ran an experiment where they put women under sedation, and then tested their response to pain. The redheaded patients required 20 to 30 percent more anesthetic than other women to achieve the same level of sedation. Scientists at the university also tried to replicate the experiment with mice, and found that animals with a MC1R mutation required more sedation, too. They theorize that the mutated gene somehow has implications beyond hair color, and perhaps affects hormones or enzymes involved in our neurological system.

The Siren Song of Red Hair Throughout history, redheads have been mistrusted and maligned. In medieval Europe, the infamous witch-hunting manual, Malleus Maleficarum, instructed that red hair and green eyes were marks of a witch, as were freckles, which redheads tend to have aplenty. This belief might have stemmed from the general consensus that redheads were evil, wanton, and hot-tempered. In the Bible, Mary Magdalene and Judas Iscariot are often portrayed as redheads, as was Lilith, Adams first wife who insisted on sexual equality. Even Jonathan Swift, in his 1726 classic Gullivers Travels, characterized redheads as being wanton and promiscuous.

There might actually be some truth to the myth of the lustful redhead. A recent study by a sex researcher in Hamburg, Germany found that women with red hair had sex more often. Another survey in England duplicated those findings, and reported that redheads had sex an average of three times per week, compared to twice per week for blondes and brunettes. For these studies, it didnt matter whether the womens hair was naturally red or Natural Instincts. Of all the women who color their hair, 30 percent choose to become redheadsmore than the 27 percent who go brunette and the 26 percent who go blonde. Some scientists theorize that these women are capitalizing on the perception of the fiery redhead to signal to men that they are looking for partners.

Even if redheads do have to endure a lifetime of sunburns and being called ginger, their hair doesnt just make them stand out, it makes them incredibly unique. Some famous fiery redheads include Queen Elizabeth I, Galileo, Thomas Jefferson, Napoleon, and Vincent Van Gogh. More recent redheads include comedienne Lucille Ball and birth control pioneer Margaret Sanger. Not exactly a bad crowd to be associated with, if you ask me. If this is the company that redheads keep, then Im off to the salon.
