Rick Perry's Biking Accident Somehow Leads To Outbreak Of Hair Jokes
The news day is nearly done, and we can begin to total up the Official Rick Perry Hair-Joke Count.
As you likely know, Perry broke his collarbone while riding a bike. If you didn't know, then you were, apparently, one of the few people who didn't head directly to the web to make a hair joke.
Google rick perry collarbone hair and you get commenters saying:

We, of course, have been guilty of the occasional Rick Perry hair joke; we must now ponder whether it should be permanently relegated to the "Houston, we've got a problem" cliche file.
Hell, probably not. It is one outstanding head of hair, after all.
