Instructions for the shot

"Everyone perfectly still, hold it and wonderful posing. Looking like wax museum figures."

Keep It Clean

Can't really say his knife holder is the most sanitary arrangement but I suppose it got the job done.

The Snake Belt

Has been around a long time -- holding pants up (or not) since at least 1905.

Eyes on your work!

Soup strainer? Check!

Even if they're not actually related by blood, they are definitely all Brothers of the 'Stache.

Catchy Name

They could be a barbershop quartet in the making. This picture is from one of their road tours.

The little Imp

Probably heated many hearty breakfasts for these gents!

My Other Brother Darryl

Looking at the faces of the two on the ends and the other man standing up, I get the feeling these are three (maybe four) brothers.
