Say it ain't so: stick-on goatees for follicly challenged Japanese men

Everyone knows that when it comes to wasting money on unnecessary luxuries there’s gullible and then there’s plain stupid - you can be the judge on this one, as I’ve lost all sense of what passes for normal here in Japan.

Propia - a haircare specialist - apparently has cojones so ridiculously tumescent it thinks it can sell packaged wisps of sticky hair to bald-faced Japanese guys who long for a spot of facial fuzz.

The offerings from the home of hirsuteness are as follows: ¥3,150 ($26) for a Hitler-esque moustache, ¥1,890 ($15) for a set of two bottom-lip wuzzles and ¥3,465 ($28) for a skimpy dusting of goatee-style chin hair.

Propia’s marketing spiel sums up their attitude to the masses perfectly: “Sweat is sucked and penetrated after attachment.” Quite.
