Fu Manchu was a dastardly character once played by the legendary Christopher Lee. His defining facial feature was his wonderful moustache. (see link)

This is now available for all to wear in the form of the The Covid Mask Of Fu Manchu. Its main function is to offer the type of protection afforded by all other anti-Covid masks, but the Fu Manchu has an advantage: this takes form of the two defining elongated moustache features that hang down either side of the mouth region. In this version, the moustache tails extend well below the neck region, half way down the chest in fact.

In addition to making the wearer of the mask look like Fu Manchu, the moustache tails act like strings that can be pulled down to create a small range of "mask expressions". They are able do this because they are connected to areas of rubberised fabric in the actual mask that can stretch to generate some basic movements.

Increased frowns and snarls are easy, but pulling up on the moustache tails will even manage to result in the forming of a smile, an expression Fu Manchu was not easily given to, except when inflicting some kind of chaos or pain to his victims.

De Luxe version can emit a sticky drool for the times when the wearer is forced into close proximity with non-mask wearing fools.

Fu Manchu moustaches https://www.google....BAH&biw=927&bih=661

       This idea glorifies evil foreign supervillains bent on world domination.   

       It promotes xenophobia, paranoia and fear.

       You could always opt for Gaucho Marx, the eponymous wisecracking Argentinian cattle-herder.

       Wasn't he a socialist?

       I love mustaches. Especially Handlebars. My husband had a handlebar mustache when I met him and he was the only guy in town who did. I could see him from a distance in a crowded club when I was trashed. (aka, every night.)   

       So I'm a bit biased, but I do prefer handlebars over Fu Manchu style.

       //Wasn't he a socialist?// Now you're just buying into the Orientalist stereotypes: Fu Manchu as a typical Chinese and therefore Communist.

       These days, the "typical Chinese" manifests a delight in market Capitalism that would make a Victorian cotton-mill owner blench ... the "communist" hierarchy are now nothing more than a bunch of old fogeys frantically clinging on to power - their attempts at social control are motivated by self-interest, not ideology.

       //I do prefer handlebars over Fu Manchu style.// I did consider a number of options, including "The Walrus", "The Hippopotamus" and "The District 9 Alien Face", but only Fu Manchu had the necessary attributes to fulfil my dual function of generating two idea with one posting, as I served up 8th on a plate. It worked out really well, and now he's waving his spidery limbs in the air.

       Well, this is getting silly, silly, silly

       No no no, Gaucho Marx, not the other one.
