Bowl cut = Asian = tasty fast food?

Is it just me, or is the bowl cut back? Okay, maybe just back enough to poke some more fun at Asians. First there's Jack in the Box using the ugliness of the bowl cut (man those dweeby Asians, always behind the times!) to sell their new teriyaki bowls (get it? Bad Asian hair, good Asian dish...soooo funny).

Then there's Wendy's and their "3conomics" commercials with this Asian actor -- also sporting a killer bowl cut. Coincidence? I think it's safe to say that in our post-ironic times, the use of the "nerdy" bowl cut is actually signalling something awesomely on trend, some sort of "geek chic," eh? Or maybe not...
