Award-winning locks

On my search through the interwebs for more wild and wicked news on redheads I came across the empowering story of six-year-old Ryan McAllister and his award winning head of red hair.  But more shocking than this child winning with his Richie Cunningham appearance was the fact that Milwaukee’s Irish Festival actually has, not only, a children’s red hair contest but also a children’s freckles contest.

Sadly there are no details on how the judges rate these children.  Is there a color of copper that they hold in higher esteem? A grouping or distribution of freckles that is preferable? And who is qualified to judge these fair gingers?  Carrot-Top?  Shirley Temple? And why just children? Am I too old for this judgement?   These questions boggle the mind.

Either way — Congrats Ryan McAllister.  Wear your red hair proudly.
