Is Wearing a Hitler Moustache a Good Idea?

Is the Hitler moustache history?  Since World War II it has not been popular, but long before Hitler rose to power, the toothbrush was the signature look of Charlie Chaplin.   In fact, the tiny moustache was quite fashionable at one time.

Now comedian Richard Herring is sporting a toothbrush moustache for his Edinburgh show, 'Hitler Moustache', in which he rails against voter apathy and fascism.  Herring said of his new moustache, "As people passed they would start laughing about five yards behind me. A group of lads called me 'Adolf'. I haven't had any sense of anger but I think some people were intimidated or scared."

With such a hairy past, it shouldn't be suprising that his moustache would get a lot of lip.  But Herring is convinced that a Hitler moustache might grow on us -- provided we don't turn up our noses.

Seems to me that after so long, it's probably past time that symbols and such appropriated by Hitler and his bunch be reclaimed and given new and better meanings.

Supposedly, even Hitler was advised against sporting the toothbrush, simply because it was far from fashionable in Germany at the time. In other words, he made a fashion statement!
