Now Cain’s ’Stache Has Come Under Suspicion

By
WASHINGTON, DC - NOVEMBER 02:  Republican presidential candidate and former CEO of Godfather's Pizza Herman Cain participates in a discussion with members of the Congressional Health Care Caucus on Capitol Hill November 2, 2011 in Washington, DC. Part of the "Thought Leaders Series," Cain and members of the caucus discussed the current health care system and health care initiatives for the future. Cain has been making headlines for the past two days after POLITICO.com reported Sunday that the National Restaurant Association paid settlements to two female employees who accused Cain of harassment when he was president of the association in the 1990s.

It's been a big day for the American Mustache Institute: not only have they put forth their own tax proposal, but they've rescinded their previous endorsement of mustache-wearer Herman Cain. Or, we should say, alleged mustache-wearer Herman Cain:

Then allegations came to light that Cain’s mustache is not real, but actually a theater-quality, upper lip garment, and not the labia sebucula (Latin for “lip sweater”) he claims to have worn since his early twenties.

“Even after our endorsement of Cain on CNN, we continued to do our due diligence relative to his mouth shading device,” added Dr. Froman. “The evidence continues to mount that his mustache is a fraud.”

Herman Cain, meanwhile, invites all the ladies out there to investigate his labia sebucula for themselves.
