Skateboards are the new comb-over for men chasing their youth

According to the NY Post, skateboards are the new comb-over for men chasing their youth.1I object to the headline’s use of “comb-over.” It makes skateboards sound uncool. What’s strange is the article presents it as quite the opposite. Hmm. Maybe this is a case of a wannabe headline author dissing the point of the article. Also, these whippersnappers appear to be a little young to be having their midlife crises, but regardless, I approve of their mode of transportation. :-) Hahaha! Who knew this was even a thing?! :-D
