Know your ponytails

Fashionistas at this year’s BookExpo Canada were quick to notice an emerging trend: the grey-haired ponytail. Several men wore this signature look with a casual grace. It’s a bold statement that we’d like to coin as “The McNally.” Can you tell these gentlemen apart? Indeed, which is the “real” Ben McNally?

Answers after the jump.

Pictured on the left is Book Publishing Company president Bob Holzapfel. In the centre is BPC Special Sales and Promotion manager Thomas Hupp. Keen-eyed readers would probably have picked out Toronto bookseller McNally (right) by his red hair elastic.

Who knew that the influence of George Carlin was still being felt in the Canadian book industry?
