Barristers Flipping Their Wigs. by tucsonmike on 7 January 2007 3:51am
 
No, this is not a practical joke. The Arizona Daily Star reprinted an Associated Press Story saying that Barristers may stop wearing the wigs except for criminal trials.
The link is as follows:

Are'nt we becoming ever so modern?
Just a few heads to be chopped off and we'll be very 21st Century.

Shame, there is a wig shop in Fleet Street, opposite the Law Courts - they'll be going out of business then.

The ones who have bald heads will be upset - they won't be able to hide them. LOL!

Maybe the wig shop should start marketing itself to the rich tourist trade and promote wigs as sentimental souvenirs from the vanishing Olde England.
