You DO need to say more

One of the biggest problems with today's strip is that it's labeled as "sign of the times," and yet everyone in it looks like they belong in 1956. Just having the kid say "like" and "awesome" doesn't make him contemporary. Of course, I don't get this at all. So is the implication that the popular hairstyle today is insanely short? Is that...bad? And what does the "Tomahawk cut" remark mean? It looks like someone who's been scalped?

I just don't know. Al, you continue to confuse.

I think it's supposed to be a mohawk...

Except it has a part, so I don't think it's exactly a mohawk, though I think the "tomahawk" remark alludes to that hairstyle.

And given Al's inability to move out of the 50's, shouldn't he be glad to see some kid get his hair cut real short? Wouldn't want some hippy-ass, Beatleseque coif, would we?

This "sign of the times" is about three years out of date. The kids I see today are wearing their hair long and shaggy, whereas a few years ago they were practically shaving their heads bald.
