Never Trust a Moustache (Moustache Mythos)

Post by MonsieurMoustache » Mon Sep 02, 2013 8:24 am

Monsieur awakened to the sound of distant wuffling.

People fled down broken streets, pursued by enormous mouth-brows. To his left a man screamed as his meticulous five o’clock shadow erupted into a full beard, which devoured him from the chin down.

“This isn’t how it was supposed to be,” gasped Monsieur.

He reached for the reassuring bristle of Beatrice. But there was only bare skin.

"No..."

High above the city, waving hairs as thick as tree-trunks, was Beatrice. She caught a jet and crumpled it.

"No..."

<<SORRY, MONSIEUR. BUT IT WAS US OR YOU. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICES.>>

"NNNNOOOOOOOO!"

Now in typical Japanese style the city dwellers need to invoke Gojira out of his slumber to fight Beatrice. If Godzilla wins, he will walk off in the setting sun which of course will be a metaphor for the rising son of Japan and the strength of the people in overcoming nuclear holocaust or in this case, the moustachecast!
