Another secret 'stache

Hard to believe I'm revisiting this subject.

My sincere thanks to Jason Hare from Popdose, who steered me to this article from Billboard magazine entitled "Oates, Mustache Make Cartoon Crime-Fighting Team." That's right, as in John Oates:

Left: With mustache, pushing Daryl Hall out of the picture.
Right: Without mustache, but somehow less Oatey.

But this cartoon might change all that! It's not clear from the description as to whether the mustache itself acts on behalf of Oates, or if there's an alterna-Oates that wears the mustache and does all the crime fighting. I guess I'll have to wait and see.

In the meantime, I'd like your answer to this question: what other celebrity body parts merit stories of their own? (Or, in the alternative, whose mullet most deserves screen time?)

For example, I should think that an entire theatrical release could be devoted to Mick Jagger's lips. But the subsequent TV series adaptation would have to use Steven Tyler's lips, just because they're more affordable at that stage of production.

(Author's Note: I've been slow to add keywords to Brevity, but this post has prompted me to add facial hair. Now I'll go back and find every reference of facial hair I've ever made, especially "beards" of the fake marital variety.)

Peter Gallagher's eyebrows?

Nice!

I would totally see/make/finance a movie about Peter Gallagher's eyebrows. Maybe a musical...

Of course, with the TV adaptation, we'd only be able to afford Johnathon Schaech.

Angelina Jolie's lips? That too redundant?

Ron Howard's ears?

Barbra's nose?

I'm reaching....

Angelina's salary is in the stratosphere at this point; I don't think we can afford her lips at any level of production.

Gina Ravera would do nicely, though.

Kim Kardashian's backside (I think we can all agree it has surpASSed JLo's)

Enrique Iglesias' Mole (gone the way of Oates' 'stache)
