A thread without aspiration. Simply (and I cannot emphasise that enough) for posting drawings - not you own, God help - of famous or notorious mil/hist figures with absurd facial topiary.

If no-one bothers then y'bespoke offerings will do as a pisspoor alternative.

On that note: Please stay away from anything OTT involving, oh, y'know hallowed religious figures. With the exception of ugula-bugula bongo-bongo thingies.

I imagine the mods will support me on the first half of that paragraph. Harshly. :)

If they edit the second half then they are frankly no fun. :eek:

I always thought Adolf Hitler's little mustach made him look like a goof.

US Civil War generals have notoriously bad taste in facial hair.

HEY!!! Leave him alone! :)

With or without sideburns, the young Elvis was something to look at.
