I was looking at something on Wikipedia today (can’t remember what it was now), and I saw a link to their “red hair” article. I was curious, so I clicked on it. Their information looks pretty standard, but I was rather amused by the pictures they had. So, I had a look at their blond and brunette entries to see if they were similar.

This was their brunette:
Their predictable blond:

Okay, no suprises there. Now take a look at my hair color’s representation…. (more…)
