"We could be really, really wrong about this," says Michael Ian Black. "I'm not sure we are," says Thomas Lennon. "I think we might be really right. But if we're wrong, we've missed by a mile. We're so-o-o-o wrong!" "Tom and I went to theater camp together when we were 16," offers Kerri Kenney, "and the slogan was, 'Dare to Fail Gloriously.' " "That's us!" crows Lennon. Right or wrong, they're discussing their new series, "Viva Variety," which premieres at 10 tonight on cable's Comedy Central.

Hammer is hammering away at Garth Brooks but Brooks' "Ropin' the Wind" still leads the Billboard magazine pop album chart by a country mile, substantially outselling Hammer's second-ranked "Too Legit to Quit." Hammer may reach the top yet. His single, "2 Legit 2 Quit," rising rapidly on the pop singles chart (No. 19), may significantly boost album sales. Brooks has two Top 10 albums again. His "No Fences" moved up three notches to No. 9.

Those closely cropped bobs and shags may be the hallmark of the carefree waif look, but they are anything but carefree if your hair is too straight, curly or limp. To make these new 'dos work for a variety of hair types, stylists are rediscovering the hair-shaping benefits of that barber shop staple: the straight-edge razor. "By removing excess bulk, a razor cut gives your hair more body. It also gives the hair mobility, because it doesn't blunt the ends like a scissor cut does.

Mike Price is low key when he talks about Ryan Leaf, like a father who doesn't want to bore the lodge meeting with exploits of his son, but still wants the brethren to know that the kid is special. "He really has progressed quite well," said Price, the Washington State football coach. "He's becoming a better quarterback, technique-wise. His accuracy in passing is getting better. . . . He's just real good underneath the center." Bob Toledo suffers no such inhibitions.

Or rather, he was reassuring the darkened, sometimes blurry image of his mother's face at the bottom of a 15-inch TV screen. Forget those poignant scenes of teary-eyed jail visitors pressing their hands to glass partitions separating them from their loved ones.

A few years ago, Bugle Boy was one of America's hottest companies. Teen-age boys and young men were consumed with its baggy cargo pants, and the company had a top-rated television ad to boot. For the year ended April, 1990, Bugle Boy earned $44 million, on sales of over $500 million--nearly double the previous year. But fashion trends keep changing and the cargo look began to fade that year. And so nearly did Bugle Boy.
