Egads, Carrot Top ditched his signature orange curls for a straight and sleek ‘do on the cover of Las Vegas Magazine. When he looked at a photo of himself with his new mane he joked, “I would have sex with her … I’m pleasantly shocked, I look really good.” Hmmm. I don’t know if “good” is the right word.
