In light of the never-ending doom and gloom of the economic world, an arcade owner has opportunistically revamped the classic “whack-a-mole” game. For 40p, you can hit a balding banker for 30 seconds and relieve some of your frustration. But why do they all have hair loss?
Inventor Tim Hunkin, owner of the arcade at Southwold pier in Suffolk the game which is “proving very popular”, said the look of the bankers was very specific.
“The bankers are bald and all look the same because that’s how I think people see bankers, as faceless,” Hunkin said.
City bankers haven’t had it easy during the recession, with many people blaming them for the most part of their dwindling savings or investments. And the people of Suffolk are getting their revenge by lobbing bankers over the head with a sledge hammer when they pop up.
“I keep having to replace worn-out mallets,” Hunkin said.
If a player wins, they are told: “You win. We retire. Thank you very much to the taxpayer for paying our pensions.”
Baldness has always been involved in humour and creating stereotypes, despite the fact that 1 in 3 men will suffer hair loss by the time they’re 50. Most of the time it starts out with some temporal recession or thinning on the top of the scalp, but the development of these characteristics in younger men these days is breaking the mould.
Hair loss is no longer regarded as just an inherent trait of a middle-aged man. It is becoming known that thinning hair and hair loss are affected by environment and lifestyle factors such as chemicals, stress and diet.
Despite the hundreds that are marketed, solutions that control or treat hair loss are limited to two clinically proven and medically approved treatments. Specialists recommend a consultation to establish the cause, type and stage of hair loss before commencing use of a hair loss treatment programme that incorporates correct formulations of the proven products and is specifically tailored to suit the individual.
