If you learn anything from this week’s episode of Link25, it should be to let the barber finish cutting your hair before doing anything worthy of a mugshot. Or…maybe you can learn to “brushy” (you’ll just have to read on to find out). Regardless, we just hope you walk away a better person after skimming through 25 of the week’s best links, articles, images, and videos from all over the web. This is Link25 (015) – The Barbershop Brawler Edition.
