Sarasota, Fla. -
Danny Williams is sporting a new look after his heart surgery, and it's not just a surgical scar.
For years, the premier of Newfoundland and Labrador has parted his hair down the middle. But Williams is now parting his hair on the left side of his head, combed towards the right.
"I was violated in my sleep," Williams joked in an interview.
"When I came out of the operation I was still just coming out from the anesthetic ... and in the interests of trying to take a dishevelled head and comb it up, they basically took away the centre part so I've gone to a side part."
Williams said comedian Mark Critch of the CBC's "This Hour has 22 Minutes" might be the most upset by the change because one of his skits relies on the centre part.
"He said my hair is divided down the middle because one side represents Newfoundland and the other side represents Labrador," said Williams.
On his Twitter account, Critch remarked on the premier's new coiffure: "Danny Williams changed from hair parted in middle to combed to the side. My world is ending."
