And here I assumed my state had more sense than Florida.

Also, this is the first I heard of a mustache think-tank.

Let me guess, he's got a mustache.

Another republican trying to get a tax break for himself.

Color me shocked.

You can pry my moustache wax from my cold, dead hand.

It'll be easy because my hand will probably have moustache wax on it.

He's totally been bought by his donors: the retro pornstar lobby and Big Motorcycle Cop.

Any special dispensation for people with goatees?

I'm not asking for myself, but for my evil twin.

Ahem...

They're planning a Million Moustache Man march on...

Wait for it...

A Republican congressman? I would have expected the tax break for beards!
 
2012-03-05 02:56:14 AM  
It'll probably get attached to and buried in some other totally unrelated bill.

That's right. A mustache rider.

Approves of this measure, and will give a special editorial comment in support of it.

If I were to bet...

You can't tax a mustache.

You could probably tax a truck driver if you had the balls.

You could tax a gun owner if you want your face shot off.

I don't care. Shave my pussy and return her in the morning.

You know, if I hadn't spent so much time there, I'd probably be starting to wonder by now if the US is a real country or just some kind of weird performance art project.

Eh...just another example of English cornering foreign languages in dark alleyways, blackjacking them and rifling through their pockets for loose words.

The American Mustache Institute (new window) are the people behind this.

How serious is the AMI? From their "history" page:
In 1965, the National Voting Rights Act passed outlawing discriminatory voting practices that had been responsible for the widespread disenfranchisement of black Americans in the U.S. Quietly attached to this bill was a little-known rider called the Federal Mustache Tax Amendment (FMTA), levying a 3 percent annual income tax against men with mustaches, and if a man's spouse had a mustache, an additional 2 percent annual levy.

So yeah...

"Dr. Aaron Perlut" has been appearing on some new shows, and he has one of the finest deadpan acts you've ever seen.
 
2012-03-05 06:24:17 AM  
This guy is my new Congressman. I was gerrymandered into his district. I consider him to be a vast improvement over my former rep Donna Edwards.

That being said, he still needs to go. Too bad the people in the Dem primary are nothing but flunkies for the unions.
 
2012-03-05 06:47:33 AM  
Looks a lot like satire, but I'm not sure.

Like I said: look at the American Mustache Institute website.

If you're still not sure if it's satire, you need a new sense of humor.

"Founded in 1965 and committed to battling a demonstrated discriminatory culture against people of Mustached American heritage, the American Mustache Institute is the world's leading facial hair advocacy organization and think tank protecting the rights of, and fighting discrimination against, Mustached Americans by promoting the growth, care, and culture of the lower nose forest.

Broadly considered the bravest organization in the history of mankind behind only the U.S. military and the post-Jim Henson Muppets, the Institute serves as the ACLU of the downtrodden Mustached American people, making its headquarters in the City of St. Louis, as it is home to the world's largest mustache - the Gateway Arch.

AMI continues to battle negative stereotyping that has accompanied the mustache since those glory years of the 1970s - the peak of mustache acceptance - fighting to create a climate of acceptance, understanding, flavor saving, and upper lip warmth for all mustached Americans alike.

Read the detailed history of the American Mustache Institute and the long-standing pattern of discrimination here."

Well, THIS must be satire.. I dunno if the congressman in question knows it.

Well all right, all right.

Yeah, because NOBODY would have mentioned that part in the last couple of weeks, even if he didn't notice the blatant silliness of the thing by himself, especially after it started to get national news coverage.

In 6th grade I used the french spelling on a spelling test and my teacher marked wrong. I objected and she looked it up, found it was an acceptable alternate spelling and corrected my test. Almost had to pop a cap in her ass.
