Monday Moustache: Bring in 'da Noise, Bring in 'da Funke

Today marks the twenty-ninth post in a recurring segment on moustaches.

Today's moustache:
Tobias Funke

Almost everything in Tobias Funke's online bio is so absurd that it makes Third Strike laugh and snort milk out the nose. Gross.

So just who is this creation by the prolific David Cross, and what's special about his Funkey moustache?

Tobias Funke was originally intended to be a minor character in Arrested Development, but his role was increased when everyone realized how ridiculous David Cross could be. Tobias is a "Never-Nude", which, as Ron Howard narrates it, is exactly what it sounds like.
Tobias at his physical

Tobias was licensed as a therapist and an analyst, making him the first licensed "Anal-rapist". He has a tendency to make the verbal faux pas, and often finds himself in trouble (usually regarding questions to his sexuality) due to his obliviousness. Example: accidentally joining a gay protest while dressed as a pirate, after misunderstanding a joke as a party theme.

After attempting to give CPR to a sleeping (but otherwise healthy) tourist, Tobias lost his medical licenses, and gets inspired to become an actor. Like the many doctors who become actors so they can live the life of a TV doctor (which is typically more interesting than saving real lives, and allows for more hang time with Hugh Laurie), Tobias fails miserably.

So what makes Tobias and his moustache interesting? The Monday Moustache does not get awarded to failures!

Well, following his acting rejections, Tobias decided to find a group-therapy gathering to cure his growing depression. Due to his characteristic misunderstandings, he finds himself mistakenly joining The Blue Man Group.
I feel Blue...
This moustache is an EPIC WIN for introducing the moustache to the formerly 'stache-prejudiced Blue Man Group. Tobias Funke is the Monday Moustache's first Blue person, a milestone for people of unusual color everywhere.

  1. Arrested Development is one of my all time favorite shows, and the the more David Cross was in it the better it got. Who doesn't love an Analrapist.
