Spencer Tracy: The Redhead Lover of Women

spencertracy

Possibly the best actor of the 20th century, Spencer Tracy let his red-haired persona come out on screen as well in real life.

Tracy had hot romances with many of his leading ladies, drank excessively – on the movie set as well – while garnishing two Best Actor Academy awards. Teaming up with Katharine Hepburn for nine Hollywood onscreen romances, their love carried off the screen for over 25 years even while he was married. Sounds like a wild redhead!

Redheads High on Marijuana

There is a strain of marijuana named after Willie Nelson called the Red headed Stranger.iu

I am wondering how other redheads respond to getting high on marijuana, since we  respond differently to almost everything such as needing 20% more anesthesia to be put under. I myself smoked it many many times before I felt anything. But when I did, it was quite a ride. I was at a concert where White Snake opened for Quiot Riot. The music never sounded so good. I shouldn’t have been driving when we left. I remember being on a slant and the other cars moving and I thought I was going backwards, so I pressed the brakes and started screaming. I think I drove 10mph all the way the home. Those stop signs took like eternity to arrive.

I have read other discussion sites where redheads often never get high, to getting higher than anyone else to just a regular high. Sure enough there is always the uninformed  response from non-redheads that cannot believe that marijuana would react differently because of one’s hair color. Personally, I haven’t touched the stuff in years. That is funny to me now that marijuana is legal in most states. Lastly, it’s always a bad ride when I have drunk alcohol before smoking.

Hagar the Horrible

hagar the horribleOnce again a redhead breaks the records!

“Hägar the Horrible broke all records when it was launched on Feb. 4, 1973, becoming the fastest growing comic strip ever. The strip was created by Hi and Lois artist Dik Browne in his basement art studio/laundry room in Connecticut. The strip’s title was the family nickname for Dik Browne, and the characters were loosely based on Dik’s family and friends. The little red-bearded Viking has appeared in advertisements for IBM, Mug Root Beer, Skol Ale and in the opening titles for the TV show “Caroline in the City,” which starred actress Lea Thompson as a successful female cartoonist. Hagar has appeared on his own CBS special and is featured in Universal’s Islands of Adventure: Toon Lagoon theme park. The strip now appears in about 1,900 newspapers around the world. It appears in 56 countries and is translated into 12 languages and is now drawn by Dik’s son, Chris Browne.” (from the website hagarthehorrible.com)

Chelsea Clinton Gets Compared to Howdy Doody

howdy doody

Obviously someone who doesn’t like Chelsea Clinton compared her to Howdy Doody, a favorite children’s show when TV reception came in black&white. Chelsea responded positively by stating that she did not mind the comparison because “he stood up to bullies & believed in being kind to animals.” I guess she didn’t get the joke. As a redhead, it’s quite a putdown to be compared to the terrible caricature of a person with red hair. Plus Howdy Doody is a puppet, a talking mouthpiece. I guess it’s still ok to put down redheads without any pushback. To lighten matters, Cheech&Chong asked, “Does Howdy Doody have wooden balls?”
