… The Complete Ukulele Guide to the Mustaches of the World!
Behold the glory!
Behold even more glory!
The description …
The Ukulele Guide includes not only the standard moustache groups, but also exotic and endangered moustaches like the Shirley Temple and the LARP-stache. Recently cultivated strains of moustache such as the Octopus also feature prominently, and the headstock is graced with an inspiring moustache quote, sure to please any moustache fancier.
We here at Olivia Waite have been researching the cephalopods with more intensity than usual, for reasons which will eventually be revealed. And since the demands of the Demon Puppy have so far prevented us from visiting an actual aquarium—though not for long!—much of this research has been in the form of YouTube videos.
Some of these you may have seen; others may be new; all of them are awesome.
