RIP Patrick Swayze & Homage to Bouffants

Patrick swayze

He didn’t put baby in a corner, he was fond of appearing from beyond the grave to throw a few auld pots and he was Pony Boy’s big bro in one of my favourite films of all time, the Outsiders.

But there was something beyond playing wrong-side-of-the-tracks dancer Johnny Castle in Dirty Dancing that set Patrick Swayze apart: his hair. Teased, tousled and bouffanted to perfection, I’ve no doubt there was a lot of product lurve going on there.

Pomade, Bryclream and hairspray, I’d lay bets he had a bathroom cabinet that was chocka with stuff -  cos there’s no way his hair defied gravity over the decades without it. And sure that’s something we can get down with at, eh?

So, RIP Patrick Swayze and your magnificent barnet: we’ll miss you.

    I will admit to a soft spot also.
    he seemed like a very nice man

    I don’t own a dvd of hs but if dirty dancing is on the telly, you do end up leaving it on.

    I’m one of these people though who go “who said anything about putting baby in the corner” and “how does lifting her up in the air fix that”? Very romantic so I am.

    Ah he will be missed, he seemed like a down to earth guy and it was very refreshing for someone so famous to have marriage that lasted. Def gonna be watching Dirty Dancing this week

    my sister and i went out to eat a few years ago and my niece was just a baby in her car seat. i went to pop the seat in the corner of a booth and my sister shouted out “nobody puts baby in the corner”. it’s amazing how many people got it and laughed in that restaurant….can’t believe i just remembered that stooopid story!!
