Patenting the comb-over


This is a *great* patent. You may no longer sport a comb-over without paying a licensing fee to Frank J. Smith and Donald J. Smith of Orlando, Florida. See the full patent by clicking on the image on the left. The rush is on to patent the mullet, the spike, the caeser and the florence henderson.

Doesn't patent exclusivity only last 17 years? Sadly, this may be why the comb-over is coming back.
