London ASS' Press: - Oxford Street was rocked today as customers stayed away in droves from the unveiling of a new line of facial mirkins and hairpieces.
It isn't the various types of facial hair available that is causing concern; just one small portion of the entire collection has been dubbed "in poor taste"
Part of the range, entitled, "World Leaders and Men of History" has got some people very hot under the collar due to the inclusion of facial hair resembling dictators and despots.
There is the Saddam Hussein, a fat hairy slug like addition to the top lip.
The Genghis Khan, a big curly affair that can be the stunning centrepiece to bring out the best in even the most generic of faces (according to the marketing blurb)
Then there is the Hitler, a small strip of hair, looking like it was snipped off the end of decorating brush used for touching up window edges and skirting boards.
"This is the offending turd in the whole dung pile" said ex Brigadier Montgomery .R. Sole of the Gentlemen's Facial Hair Club of Great Britain
"It beggars belief that people would do these things in this day and age. I can understand the likes of Genghis and Saddam being in the collection, as they are historical figures, but it's a bit soon do be doing this sort of thing with Hitler.
