Crouching Tiger, Hidden Mullet

In our continuing weeding saga, which has brought you such gems as a 15th Century alchemy text, we now turn our attention to the Sports section (Ms. Walker’s personal favourite, being such an athletic sort). In addition to a baffling number of books on windsurfing and skydiving, there was also a small yet highly amusing martial arts collection that, sadly, will be headed to the big recycling centre in the sky. But not before we shamelessly mock the late-90s hairstyles in Learn Karate by J. Allen Queen.

THE BANGS! THE BANGS!

To be fair, this book actually seems like a pretty good beginner’s guide. I wouldn’t weed it if the photos weren’t so outdated. The text is easy to follow, there are lots of step-by-step instructions, and it’s well-organized. But, oh, the hair. THE HAIR.

That is a roundhouse kick to the bangs. Five points.

It's not the teased bangs so much as the SCARY ARTICULATED TOES and FIERCE EXPRESSION here.
