Years ago a customer asked barber Henry Coffer to save the hair he swept up from his shop floor. The man, a farmer, spread it around his watermelon patch to keep coyotes out.
Henry kept saving the hair cuttings even after the farmer stopped raising melons. The hair collection grew daily, weekly, yearly until today. Ask Henry Coffer how much hair he’s cut over the years and he points to a huge hairball that fills most of the bed of his pickup truck.
Henry’s hairball weighs around 167 pounds. He’ll get an official weight soon and submit it to the Guinness Book of World Records.
