I have to admit, when I first heard that the comb-over was patented I thought it must be an urban legend, like the hook-man and the parked lovers, or like a funny Marilu Henner show. But low and behold here it is! Granted in 1977 this “invention” is credited to a father and son from Orlando Florida who obviously weren‘t aware of the fabulous GLH Can-O-Hair from Ron Popeil. Unfortunately for the inventors the patent has now expired, so all you wanna-be Donald Trumps out there can combover to your hearts content without fear of infringement. Isn’t the Public Domain a wonderful thing?
