The Brotherly Mustache



James and William Harbut, known locally as "The Harbut Boys." Ruffians in their youth, they finally grew fine matching mustaches and joined the gentry. The civilizing influence of a properly groomed mustache cannot be over estimated. It tamed more wild youth in the Nineteenth Century than comely minister's daughters.

Me thinks the Harbuts ran out of their mustache medicine. Don't let it happen to you! This video will explain further:http://youtube.com/watch?v=KGm5_dCQO3w

They're both happy brothers now but not long back they were in a pickle at the nearby saloon when they met the Earp brothers and were drawn into a nasty "Mustache Skirmish." Which brothers had the best mustaches?! Who was the quickest draw on their mustache comb?!

You'll notice the man on the left has his hand in his pocket. That's because he lost a finger in the skirmish when Virgil Earp attacked him with an ear hair extraction device.
