Mustache: The road show

Last night we took the mustache out for a little trip to Silver Lake for an art show at Cafe Stella. And since mustaches are most at home on the bus, that's how we got there. A long haul but no one said having a mustache was easy. And given the amount of Mexicans on the bus, the 'stache was right at home. Can you spot the 'staches?

Then we hit the art show.

Then we took silly mustache pictures.

And then a pic next to a stencil of something called "Mischief Photo." Lying on the ground seemed like a good idea at the time.

The ride home was fairly uneventful aside from a lot of drunks and a guy who swore he'd just been mugged and therefore couldn't pay the fare. Funny thing was, he was still carrying his bag, had two wallet-shaped lumps in his back pocket and managed to fish out the whopping $.75 fare from what sounded like 5 bucks in loose change in his pocket. Oh yeah, and he was positvely hammered and spilling Hawiian Punch everywhere from a 2-liter bottle. Nothin' but class!

It wasn't until we literally got to our stop that some drunk Mexican guys got into a shouting match with a couple of black guys and taunted one another with "get off the bus" that things really got interesting. We just laughed and got off the bus. Then we crossed the street and looked back to see the whole bus involved in total brawl. A complete melee had broken out and people were running from the bus. Right on Vnice Boulevard, mind you. This wasn't cracktown or violenceville. It was so bad I called 911. Never done that before. Fortunately, it took them a while to get to the call so I hung up before they answered. The fight had subsided and the bus ended up leaving.

Public transporatation. Catch it!

bus brawls are just the beginning of a life of machismo, howard. Be wary of the addictive nature of that bushy manliness - it is proven fact that mustaching just once is a gateway to a life of burt reynolds.

Luckily, my family intervened.

(props on keeping it going - I'm pulling for you in the competition. and in your apparent porn career)

Again, we've never met, but I am now an avid fan and reader because of your mustache chronicles.

Mustaches are hilarious. Always. Mustaches are even funnier when they're on girls. See the link below. My friend had a mustache and mullet party. I'm the one on the left. Now if only you could get your stache as full and bushy. Devine!

Howard- I'm concerned that your stache is accompanied by other facial hair. Is that what they call a "soul patch" you have going on? If so, I suggest you color the stache for distinction (word?). Keep it comin'!
