The Good Book

B asked me if there were any bald people in the Bible. Being a font of useless information, I knew the answer. Yes. One. And here's the edifying story, for those who like to think of the Bible as The Good Book of Love.

It concerns the prophet Elijah's successor, Elisha.

2 Kings 2:23-24
Elisha went up from there to Bethel. As he was traveling up the road, some young boys came out of the city and made fun of him, saying, “Go on up, baldy! Go on up, baldy!” When he turned around and saw them, he called God’s judgment down on them. Two female bears came out of the woods and ripped forty-two of the boys to pieces.
Not to put too fine a point on it :)
