A MAN with a large, carefully manicured moustache says he wishes people would pay less attention to it.
Tom Booker spends up to an hour every morning applying wax to his lip hair and making sure the ends point upwards at a precise 45-degree angle.
Booker said: “Look at this big, beautiful thing. Now please stop looking at it. Haven’t you seen facial hair before?
“Yes, it’s the first thing you notice and I keep tagging it in Instagram posts, but why not ask about something else, like whether I speak a foreign language?
“I don’t, but that’s beside the point.
“I’m so much more than the moustache. I’ve also got an elaborate tattoo on my arm you won’t understand until I faux-begrudgingly explain it to you, and t-shirts with huge slogans on that I wish people wouldn’t look at.
“It’s so shallow of them to keep mentioning striking things about my appearance I’m pretending to be blasé about.”
Booker added: “And anyone who says the unicycle I frequently ride to work is a pointless affectation just doesn’t know me at all.”
