The snarking of the ()unt

Remind me never to get Banana Slug angry at me:
TOM SELLECK’S MOUSTACHE ON EBAY

Magnum, P.I. Star Hits Skids, Sells ‘Stache


Tom Selleck, hunky star of such fare as Magnum, P.I. and Magnum, P.I. crossovers with Murder, She Wrote, has put his famed moustache up for sale on internet auctioneer EBay.

“He didn’t want to do this,” notes close friend and co-star Larry Manetti, who played Orville ‘Snorky’ Wright on the series.

“The casting directors haven’t exactly been busting down the door, and he lost a lot of cash in that Magnum, 2000 fiasco.”

Magnum, 2000, a short lived syndicated venture, paired Selleck with a talking recreational vehicle, voiced by John Hillerman, the priggish Higgins in the original. Pitched as a combination between Knight Rider and Promised Land, the show lasted a mere three weeks.

Initial bidding for the moustache started at $14.00. While Selleck had expected the hirsute prize to claim a lot more, he will reportedly be satisfied with whatever he can get.

“He figured it was time for a new look,” offers Manetti.

“He told me if Ann Coulter can make it without her moustache, he can probably do the same.”
What is it about Ann Coulter that inspires such hostility? Is it her soft good looks? Her demure attitude? Her sweet good humor? Her loving kindness for all humanity? Her gracious acceptance that her opponents are decent people of honor? Her humility, her shy admission that she is not possessed of all knowledge and does not have all the answers? Or is the fact that she's a shrill skank who reminds us all of the flat-chested, loud-mouthed, bossy girl in high school who nobody wanted to be stuck taking to the prom? Not that I would ever reduce myself to nasty ad hominem attacks...
