Prosthetic half-Handlebar moustache

  (+3, -1)
(+3, -1)
  [vote for,

For far too long gentleman flute enthusiasts have had to forego their desire for luxuriant handlebar moustaches ever since the Wentzell prohibition of 1955.

At the next convention of the International Flautists League (Helsinki 3 June 2014) I move that the Wentzell prohibition be lifted by two-thirds majority vote and be done with it once and for all.

To facilitate this, we will be presenting the fully hinged lightweight half-Handlebar prosthetic moustache, available in left or right swing-out orientation to suit the handedness of the fluteman.

       [Kansas101] I believe Wentzell did not sit on the IFL advisory until '53 but I am happy to be corrected if in error.   

       Admitted this is not an ideal solution, we must not let the perfect be the enemy of the good.

       This device, and the associated long-overdue reform, will be a life-changing enhancement for one of The Earl of Buchananan's nearest and direst, specifically his Great-grandaunt Anaphllactia, the dowager Duchess of Fastnet (Formerly the Bristol, Lundy and Cork Steam Packet Co. Ltd.) who has been pining for an opportunity to once more indulge her passion for decades, and would also like to play the flute in public once more, once the injunction is lifted.

       Why not simply design an ambidextrous “butterfly” model? The two halves would rotate up and away from the lip, leaving the flauteur looking a bit like Salvador Dali.
