Do mane characters go to the hair dresser?

The Twirl and Swirl of Letters

Ah, spelling. The bane of every schoolkid’s existence (second to grammar).

The other day I was bored, and poked about Yahoo!Answers. I came across a question that was, essentially, “What should I name my mane (sic) character?”

That got me thinking (which is not difficult to do).

Main characters, as we all know, are stories’ focal characters. Jim is my current main character. I doubt I’ll determine his mane character.

Mane character is what our hair is like. Let’s use Harry Potter characters as examples.

Snape’s “mane character” is greasy.

Sirius’s (while in Azkaban) is matted.

Dumbledore’s mane character also includes his rather luxuriant, silver facial hair.

Voldemort has no “mane character.” He’s bald.

Ron’s is ginger.

Now, misspellings can bring about other unfortunate mismeanings. I would hate to spend time learning how to be a stylist and apply for a job as a “hare dresser.”

  1. Thanks for the chuckle.

    I was at work the other day and was entering someone’s address into the system. They lived in Lake Placid. I for some reason entered: Lack Placid.



    1. Wait. My mind boggles. WHAT? What… *stares* What the … WHAT? What was that supposed to read???

      ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ Seriously, what the bejeebers did that sign mean to say???


      1. I think it meant that they’d test for arsenic in water for free. But who knows?
        This is why grammar is important! But I’m preaching to the choir.
