There is nothing nicer

There is nothing nicer

... than the texture of a new buzz cut.  John is the only person I know who gets his hair cut that short, so he's the only one I harass about these things.

OH, while I'm here, two things.  First, there is only one day left until the score on my Threadless design finishes.  So give it a score if you feel inclined to.

Also, it should be mentioned that we are both going to be guests at Connecticon in Hartford, CT from July 31st to August 2nd.  The con is always real nice to us, hopefully we will see some of you there!

My friend Pat is constantly bothered by the ladies for this reason.

People did the same thing to me when I get a buzz cut. I remember the barber, a young lady, just finishing and rubbing my head and saying 'it feels like a puppy!'

OMG haircut tax! That's an

OMG haircut tax! That's an awesome term. I used to do this to friends when they got their hair buzzed, but I don't know anyone who cuts their hair that short anymore :(

Re: Connecticon - sweet! Perhaps I'll actually make it to that Con this year. If I do I'll stop by and say hi :D

I don't know why but I think

Comment by Cecona (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 14:33

I don't know why but I think a short girl next to an uber tall guy is incredibly adorable, so I definitely like this comic XD. I myself am a fairly short girl (5'2") and I'm only attracted to a guy if my face only comes up to his chest...Am I weird for that? D:

Haircut Tax...hehehehe. I like that! *(^o^)*

If god ever made a haircut tax...

Comment by yrael (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 17:46

It would obviously come in the form of teeny yuko.

My sister calls this kind of hair "peach fuzz." peachypeachy peach fuzz. Needless to say, she enacts a haircut tax too. just... Not half as cute as teeny yukos.

I swear with black people it's the other way around. You grow a fro and everyone has a finger in your hair... and that's why i'm bald.

Twilight Zone

First you steal my name, then you steal my height, now you steal the fact cute little Asian women rub your buzzcuts too! Darn you John! And darn me for not copyrighting myself!

That means we are both Cylons.

John's Cameo?

Comment by Farren (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 22:10

Yuko, I'm glad to see you have your Fallen Comic back up. I just started reading it this evening, when I had to stop after the first page. Looking at the picture there, I couldn't help but notice...John?! Is he making a cameo appearance in your comic?

And this is the absolutely cutest comic you have done so far. The second would be the one about Ananth's socks.


Comment by Aido Wed, 03/04/2009 - 00:08

W-WAIT, it's back up?  Oh jeez, my host must've put it back up without telling me.  I owe that man a fruit basket.

Actually, I stopped doing that comic well before I knew John.  So sorry, no.  I'm actually not even certain of what page you're referring to. >_o  (I guess it is for the best that the things I drew in high school are a blur...)

Hahaha, thank you!  :D

Asian Buzz Cuts

Comment by Suki (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 22:45

rofl i love the spring season cuz thats when all the boys are forced to get get their cheap buzz hair cuts with means NEW SOFT FUZZY HEADSSSSSSS xDDDDDD


Comment by Naktarr (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 23:41

That made me laugh :D
I remember doing that to an old bf years ago when he felt like the army look - he said it tickled ^^

I think one of my friends got a buzz cut a while back so she could have a head full of fuzzy buzzy goodness, and funnily enough no one wanted to touch her head, I guess being female warps the whole thing?

I think being a girl and

Comment by Ananth Wed, 03/04/2009 - 00:00

I think being a girl and doing it might make you think the girl is really tough and would whup your ass for touching her head. That's my hypothesis!

I would just like to say

Comment by Anonymous (not verified) Wed, 03/04/2009 - 00:17

I would just like to say that, this evening, one of my roommates took his hair down to a #1. I saw him in the kitchen, reached out my hands, and declared "HAIRCUT TAX".

Unfortunately he had not thoroughly dried his hair.

I like getting buzz cuts

Comment by Anonymous (not verified) Wed, 03/04/2009 - 08:55

I like getting buzz cuts because they're cheaper, but oh goodness the clippings. For some reason I just cannot get rid of them when I get buzzed. Like 3 days and 5 showers later I'll scratch my head and they'll still fall out.

I used to get buzz cuts all

Comment by Dj (not verified) Wed, 03/04/2009 - 11:49

I used to get buzz cuts all the time and had that problem. I figured it out's the rest of your hair falling out because it's depressed from losing their body...its only a theory though.

I'm 4'10/11" and every one

Comment by SporkWoman (not verified) Wed, 03/04/2009 - 17:01

I'm 4'10/11" and every one feels the need to remind me of that every day as if something's changed. What's funny is that I'm only a sophomore in High School and so many people think I'm a senior or junior XD

And when a friend of mine gets a buzz cut I just sit next to them and rub their head until they leave. I might get half of one myself soon.


Comment by Anonymous (not verified) Wed, 03/04/2009 - 17:26

Oh goodness, I do that same thing to my older brother when he gets his head buzz cut XD This is absolutely adorable <3

I feel deprived

Comment by Nanashi (not verified) Wed, 03/04/2009 - 23:44

I started getting my hair buzzed about half way through high school and I only had one girl who wanted to rub my head. I feel so deprived!! DX

But that was some time ago, so senility could have sent in and I have forgotten a few. I just know that I didn't have a bunch of girls coming up to rub my head.

As for the height thing...yeah I am like John. I'm between 6'3" and 6'4" and one of my past friends was...4'...? I thought it was funny that I could hold my arm out straight and she walk under it without ducking. She didn't think it was so funny and it was a pain trying to drive her car though...I usually ended up being the one sitting behind her.

I'm still not sure whose

Comment by MarkyMark (not verified) Thu, 03/05/2009 - 00:22

I'm still not sure whose taller, John or me. However, it's tons of fun when we both stand next to Yuko. It's like when you see a dogwood growing between two oaks ;p

I'm around 6ft even so I

I'm around 6ft even so I can't claim to uber tall.

I know what you mean about

Comment by Amanda Davis (not verified) Thu, 03/05/2009 - 05:47

I know what you mean about the hair! I used to have friends that kept their hair that short. But I don't get to see them anymore. :( So it's nice when my younger brother comes home and I can do that to him. He's a Marine so his hair is perpetually cut that way. hehe

"EeeEE" I imagine that

I imagine that little laugh that babies do when they smile. :P

Yuko has you all well trained

Comment by Nare (not verified) Thu, 03/05/2009 - 12:14

I loved the look of resignation in John's face =3

It's like the face of a parent lifting a 3 years old kid that is asking to be carried xD

I know a girl who maintains

I know a girl who maintains a buzz cut. For orientation last year she had someone buzz a maze into her hair :D it was nifty

Comment by Elkian (not verified) Sat, 03/28/2009 - 16:32

-v- buzzcuts are nice, arne't they? I have my hair buzzed, and my buddy has a military 'do or shorter, so we always rub each others' heads after a cut...

Actually, this is more or less all that remains of my hair-touching weirdness of freshman year...

hair tax!

Comment by Habib03 (not verified) Fri, 05/08/2009 - 02:44

lulz... i always did that to my friend and family and also myself when i get haircuts!their so nice to touch!


Comment by King_Bahamut (not verified) Thu, 06/18/2009 - 01:03

In a way this makes me all kinds of sad, I am 4'8 easily the shortest in my family. Also commenting on the comic when I saw it it seemed strange to me, all the girls I have talked to from what I remember they always disliked the buzzcut thing, my crush in highschool hated it I have no idea about anyone in my class because I really don't talk to anyone my age there only the older adults. Well enough of my rambling this is only my second comment and I must say your comic is really great(^^)

Not alone

Comment by kerrie (not verified) Sun, 02/21/2010 - 02:01

and here I thought I was the only one who did this to my friends.

ha! yes!!

Comment by lanysmiles (not verified) Sat, 04/03/2010 - 20:19

yes!! it's so soft yet stubbly!!
:D love the feeling!!

awesome! All the guys I hang

Comment by o-Owl (not verified) Wed, 10/06/2010 - 18:53

awesome! All the guys I hang out with have really long girly hair so the 'haircut tax' for me is braiding it XD that is if I knock out their knees (I'm 5' 2" and everyone else is 6'+) or they're indulgent of me that day. But the guys get the fuzzy buzz cut tax with me which they laugh at cause I'm the only girl.

This happened to me.

Comment by Jedifreak (not verified) Thu, 11/04/2010 - 15:13

All through third grade, the girls behind me would just keep feeling my hair.
