Napoleon and his historic comb-over

I ended up cataloging two Spanish biographies of Napoleon Bonaparte today and they both had some of the same pictures. One of these had Napoleon with this huge comb-over swatch going on to cover up his receding hairline. Of course I can't find this damn picture online anywhere now. Maybe I'll find it later.

But the rest of the day at work I just kept wondering, how many other comb-overs could be found in the history of mankind? Was this once a sign of power?

Then I had this awesome children's book called 'La mosca' about a fly that goes swimming in a dangerous place...a toilet! This book had collage-y style illustrations and it was hilarious because the fly almost gets bombed with a turd and flushed. Why has this book not been translated into English yet? It's not any raunchier than Walter the farting dog.

Anyway, off to find that comb-over picture.

Walter the Farting Dog? Is there a book called that really? Where exactly do you work??? I never heard of this type of place anywhere in

Walter the farting dog even has his own plush toy. Go check it out on That book is also pretty funny.

I work for a company that does book distribution services to libraries. I make some of the the records that people see when they search for books at libraries. I know..exciting, right? LOL. I'm the foreign language cataloger in my deptartment.

Gauis Iulius Caesar had a curious comb-over on the coinage made for him after kicking the Gauls arses!!

Not to mention he always wore the crown of oak leaf to help cover any other bald spots and 'cuz it added a lil' more lift to his little 5'6 height...

The Napolean comb-over is weird since it had to have been a painting, yeah? I don't think daguerreotypes were invented until a decade or two after his death. So why didn't the painter add some more hair?

Only answer I can think of is that they hadn't yet discovered how retarded the comb-over is.

Hmmm....I can only guess, but maybe since he was presumably in power at the time he could get away with having scary hair and people pretended it looked good.

Hmm the comb over is awful but what about his hand always being put into his shirt. Did he have some sort of perpetual itch or something?

Maybe his hand was actually in his pants and artists painted it higher? That was pretty weird too though. Maybe he had a secret stash on the inside of his jacket...
