I, too, do not know what sort of matress looks like hair. But at least in
Germany there are some people (like former president of the D.O.N.A.L.D.
Alexandra Gerstner) who call a beard "Kinnmatratze" (which would be the
German saying for a matress underneath ones chin). I'm quite certain this
word stems from times long forgotten, maybe even before "Barks' youth", so
maybe at least "Kinnmatratze" proves that Barks did not "invent" this
mediocre joke on his own.
