HAIKU TUESDAY: Everyone needs a Barber but Trump edition

Watching Donald Trump sleaze his way through the Indy 500 pace car announcement, I couldn't help but think back to the days when I was a child and Davy Crockett was all the rage. I had a coonskin cap - as did many many other children of my ilk.

I recall that coonskin cap fondly, even though it made my head sweat, it smelled funny, and after a while it gave my scalp an itch that just would not go away. Plus, it tended to fall off at the slightest provocation - a stiff breeze, for instance. Let's just say that even though it wasn't attached to me, I was attached to it.

I have to feel that The Donald feels the same way about that ludicrous head carpet he wears, so my advice to him is to get some Space Shuttle ablative tile superglue and have that thing plastered onto his noggin before trying to drive a convertible Camaro at 100+ mph down the Indianapolis Motor Speedway frontstretch. It's physics, Donald.

Haikus following the jump...

Trump to drive pace car.
A better job for him, though?
"Engines... you are fired."

A convertible?
A recipe for failure.
The Airborne Toupee.

Hooray for Hinchtown!
At last he has his race seat.
Oh yes, Canada.

Tracy and Dragon.
PT back with a Penske.
Is Jay more patient?

And Bruno as well!
Racing at Indy for Foyt.
AJ's Team Brazil.

Scheckter and KV.
The mechanics will likely
Earn every penny.

Butler's bad finish
Took the wind out of our sails.
That's b-ball, baby.
