"It always gets made fun of, but I think people secretly love the mullet."
— John Jayne, a contestant in a mullet contest held over the weekend in Des Moines, IA. He was among 20 contestants vying for a blue ribbon and an airbrushed painting of the infamous mullet-sporter in Joe Dirt, starring David Spade. Mullets were lovingly measured by judges from the Iowa School of Beauty. (Alas, Jayne did not win.)
