The Story of Bowl Cut Benson
Bowl Cut Benson had the best bowl cut in town. Anyone who tried to take his title of “best bowl cut in town” would always fail and be forced to live in exile never to show their head in town again.
Throughout his life there were always rumours circulating regarding the method in how he always had the most immaculate bowl cut in town. Day in day out his bowl cut was flawless and no-one could work it out. No one even knew who cut his hair, no hairdresser cut his bowl and his loved ones admitted to never having taken scissors to his hair. Many speculated that he cut his own bowl but any hairdresser will tell you that it is nigh on impossible to cut such a flawless bowl with ones own hands.
Many years after his death his secret lost diaries were uncovered and it was revealed that he never once had a haircut in his life. His flawless bowl cut was due to him bowl skating in emptied backyard pools. The continual motion of skateboarding pools every day of his life sculptured and refined his hair into the flawless bowl he exhibited throughout said life.
In death as in life Bowl Cut Benson remains an enigma.
