Heh - I wonder if anyone in the B-1 community has picked up on the old Batman's Boners cartoon (much beloved of the interwebs, of course...)?
"We thank you, but this diversion is not true.
Things never happened thus."

"Oh, but it IS true. Things need not have happened to be true.
Tales and dreams are the shadow-truths that will endure when
mere facts are dust and ashes, and forgot."

And of course the pilot of such a bird would HAVE to wear a 'tache too!  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Isn't that moustache used as some companies logo, or on their advertising ? I know it from somewhere

Yup, but there's an advertising logo or similar which uses that 'tache plus eyes and a hat ?

Planters' Mr Peanut has top hat, cane, and monocle.  No 'stache, but spatted footwear.
