Really Bad Facial Hair Move

Ok, it's not a cab-riding story, but had to share. Was at Union Station a couple of days ago and saw this older guy walking with other tourist-dressed folks across the street. This one guy had a Hitler mustache! You know, that boxy silly looking thing that you never see anybody wearing anymore because who wants to look like the 20th century's greatest psychotic dictator, right? I couldn't take my eyes off the guy. In all other respects he seemed like a perfectly normal tourist. I noticed a few other folks doing double takes as he walked by. Would love to know the story behind that.

He could simply be trying to draw attention to himself; that is certainly an effective way of doing that.

He may assert that he is a Charlie Chaplin fan. More than one writer of the time did describe that moustache as a 'Charlie Chaplin moustache'. In fact, Charlie Chaplin did star in a movie that was a spoof of Ol' Schickie.

Herr Schickelgruber still has his admirers, although most of them are in the closet. Maybe this guy was more open about it.
