Vanity Fair Leads The ‘Balders’ Movement

UPDATE:
According to Andy Borowitz, the “balders” idea is his, as he posted about it on his blog before Vanity Fair wrote about it. Just so you know.

Some say it’s too easy to make fun of Donald Trump’s hair. We say it’s too fun. Apparently Vanity Fair feels the same way as us, because it’s leading the Balders movement, a push to have Trump verify that his hair is actually real:

If Trump intends to declare his candidacy for the presidency, as he has so often threatened, the issue of his comb-over could become a Constitutional matter. In the interest of putting this controversy to rest, Vanity Fair demands that Trump release a notarized certificate from a barber proving the veracity of his hair. In the event that significant members of the Balder community question the validity of the notarized certificate, we insist that Trump submit to air, wind, and Dutch rub tests to be administered by an independent board-certified hair-care expert that will debunk, once and for all, these corrosive conspiracy theories.

See? Tell us that’s not fun. You can’t.
