If you’ve ever played in any elementary school yard or watch late night talk show host, Conan O’Brien on any given day, you’d know that being a redhead sucks.

People throw rocks at you, threaten your life, and set you rearing on a shameful course towards lifelong therapy.

I know because I was the one throwing the rocks.

But perhaps redheads are making a comeback.

Last week, two starlets, Blake Lively and Scarlett Johansson unveiled their newly ginger hairdos to the world.

The response? A resounding…meh.

Perhaps because they’ve read National Geographic’s report on the inevitable extinction of redheads, or feel sorry that no one wants to date or mate them, the two girls have taken up the ginger cause.

All I can say is, Carrot Top, you’re lucky that you’re funny.
