Feathers, Fur or Hair?

Like most people, you've probably had a bad hair day of two over the years. Wouldn't it be far more desirable to have something that DIDN'T create such havoc when you've slept in, and need to get ready quickly before you rush out the door, late to get to work??

So, hair as we humans know it seems to be the problem. What if instead we had either fur or feathers?

1) Fur seems to stay composed even after hours of sleeping in a sunny spot, on a couch back or on top of a dresser. And as a side benefit, you don't see too many bald cats or dogs, so how did we humans end up with a depleting resource on our scalps?

I vote for fur grafts, to see if that would be easier to manage after a morning of tossing and turning on a lumpy old mattress...

2) To be honest, I've never seen a bird of any sort laying down on his or her feathers (certainly not on a feather pillow!), so I can't say that those would be a viable option. It is too politically incorrect nowadays to wear one of those headdresses you could buy in the store as a child for games outside, which you could then test drive whilst snoozing.

I will try and find a bird of some sort to experiment with, but at this time, I believe that feathers, while quite ornate and fanciful, may be as much a nuisance as human hair when it comes to getting ready in the morning.

I suppose I should have thought of a few more options, but those two seemed like the most natural choices. Corduroy? Gravel? Choice to explore another day, I suppose...

Neither. I can just see you trying to comb out the matts of fur on my head and cutting them out when the brush gets stuck. And feathers? You would only ruffle my feathers I am sure. How about no hair? No nothing. That would be the best. Bald is beautiful man.

I have never ruffled a feather in my life!
