For the religious among us who choose to believe lies, the so-called experts at Wikipedia have an article about Stan Laurel.

He is a happy chap. Since his rise into the public eye, hairspray sales have gone up a massive 7% every year! The hairspray manufacturers are very merry, I can tell you.

Arthur Stanley Jefferson von Strudel, commonly known as Stan Laurel, was a comedic actor and inventor of the spiked hairstyle. He is perhaps most famous for getting Oliver Hardy into a fine mess, and then another, and, in 1941, yet another fine mess. This resulted in the gradual mental breakdown of Hardy, who felt inclined to be friends with the constantly bumbling Laurel, providing many happy viewers with one of the longest lasting double acts in comedy history.

edit History and Hair

Arthur von Strudel was born into a family of Bavarian gypsies in 1887. Little is known about his past, except that as an early teenager he mocked a mystic magic madam for having long hair. The insulted mystic cursed Arthur's head, causing his hair to grow completely vertically outwards from his head. His distress at gaining an unwanted afro caused him to desperately search for cures, devoting approximately three days to the search. He eventually managed to flatten most of his hair, but the hair on the very top of his head remained completely rigid. Some scientists postulate that if one was to dig up von Strudel's decomposing torso from his grave, the hair would still be standing.

He changed his name on September 22nd, 1914, after realising that audiences weren't interested in watching movies starring Arthur Stanley Jefferson von Strudel. There are many stories as to how he came up with the name 'Laurel', none of them believable.

edit Oliver Hardy

Hardy

Oliver Hardy as a lad.

Try looking at the page on Oliver Hardy. If it exists. Ho hum.

Oliver Hardy, born with a different name to the one he owned during his career, was born in 1888 under a different name. Not a lot is known about his original name. Only that it was very embarrassing for Hardy as a budding actor, as it was very funny. Rib-tickling, if you will.

Vying for a place in cinema comedy (alongside other comedians such as Jim Cassidy, who nobody has ever heard of, and Charlie Chaplin, who is known in some regions of the world, with a small following in Belgium), Hardy decided to change his name on January 12th, 1915. Ever since, he has been known as Oliver, or Olly. Loved by the audience, the new Oliver Hardy met a new mister Stan Laurel. Laurel and Hardy didn't enjoy each other's company, but after a film director noticed how funny they looked together, the prospect of a successful career in cinema was too good to miss.
