I'll just call this one....

Mustache Monday. 

So, yeah. There is an upcoming election happening here at the end of the month. It isn't an election for a new Chancellor, only local and state elections are taking place. Yes, Germany has individual states. 16 of them, to be exact (please don't ask me to name them!). 

Yes, it is virtually impossible to stop by without learning a thing or two ;)

In the last couple of months, political ads and billboards have been scattered around the town. And they aren't immune to high jinks either. 

I about swerved off the road when I saw these two knuckleheads staring at me.

Here, I'll zoom in so you can get a better view...

Hmmm, where have I seen that stash before?!

Nope, those mustaches are not a part of their natural facials pubes. Those are spray painted on. Pranksters. 

And before anyone jumps to conclusions and thinks this might have been a political statement, I can assure you there is no way that it was. Just some bored German kids with too much time on their hands and a can of spray paint. 

After all, I did see another billboard the other day with a kid sporting a bright orange Hitler mustache. It suited him, actually.

Come on, like the US is immune to this nonsense?! Google Obama and Hitler Mustache and see what all you come up with. 

Anyways, I just thought it was funny and worth sharing. Hope it brings a little chuckle to your Monday afternoon!

BTW, I almost forgot, don't forget that this weekend, March 25th - 27th is the Storytellers Blog Hop!! This is a unique hop for all those wonderful blogs out there that have a story to tell. You don't have to create a story for the hop, just be who you are. I can at least guarantee that there will be no giveaway, coupon or advertising sites. I think that right 'chair' is worth its weight in gold! :) Hope to see you this weekend for the hop!

  4. lol.... that's really funny :) I wasn't sure if u drew them on or it was graffiti when I looked at first. haha :)

  5. Haha- I do love graffiti like this. Also, one of the things I like best about your blog is that I always learn something, but not in a "aw, I had to LEARN something" kind of way, but in a fun way.
    I am so happy that you like musicals, too, by the way! What's the theater scene like where you are living?

  6. LMAO That's AWESOME!! I kinda think the mustaches make the men look more....distinguished : ) Maybe it will get them a few extra votes, lol.

  7. Too f'n funeeee!

    Ulrich gets my vote, don't know why, he just looks like less of a serial killer than the other one...

    Have a good Monday,


  8. It's so funny what common pranks are in different countries! In the USA we would all be looking for the white power gang that did it!

  9. The stache kind of matches the guy with the dark eyebrows, it looks like it belongs.

    @Mac - lol indeed
    @Shalyn - Seriously, it was pretty funny to see!

  17. There's a few politicians over here that would feel right at home with a Hitler tache, you've a great sense of humour, glad I found you. Happy voting.

  18. lol! I visited Rome back in 2005 and saw a lot of graffiti there as I walked around the city. I asked some of the locals about it and they blamed it on Germans... didn't see any mustaches back then though!

  19. Didn't you know the Hitler 'stache is making a comeback?! I would've about swerved off the road too!
