The Mighty Boosh: Jurgen Haabermaaster’s Danish avant-garde meisterwerk, The Doctor and Pencil.
Eyeless dolls’ heads, Victorian lace and Hitler satire. I give Spitifields a 10/10 today.
They sure are. There was at some point a myth cum ultimate pomo intertextual fantasy amongst horror film wank circles that there was originally going to be some kind of no doubt insanely surreal and demented tampon advertising campaign pastiching the trousers off Carrie (boggling at the marketing strategies that would elicit, I gleefully thereby brand said product Abjection: The Tampon (Transgressive Tampons For the Marginalised Other) ). Because nothing makes one want to purchase menstrual hygiene products more desperately than resounding screeches of “Plug it up!” and pig’s blood at the prom.

and i think if they have hitler on there, they need to have chaplin. he had the same mustache before hitler, and was world famous before hitler took power. also i would add jon waters.
Tee hee. Yes! John Waters’ mo has evolved, though, in what I’ve in the past declared The Moustache Continuum (which makes me even sadder than even I would have given myself credit for). There was the standard E.M. Forster-style cum Armistead Maupin 70s mo, a short handlebar period, and now the creepy kiddy-fiddling mock-sleazy pencil thin mo of today, which itself has evolved from a slightly fuller pencil (see also this awesomenesss) to what is apparently now partially drawn on with a Maybelline pencil. God, I suck.
