Gutzon Borglum Mustache

Gutzon Borglum is the sculptor famous for designing Mount Rushmore. Then his story gets bleak. “A child of polygamy. His father, Jens Møller Haugaard Børglum, had two wives when he lived in Idaho—Borglum’s mother and his mother’s sister, his father’s first, legal wife. His father decided to leave Mormonism and to go back to Omaha, where polygamy was illegal and taboo. He decided that Gutzon’s mother would be cast out of the family and never spoken of again.”

Happy Holidays everyone!

Bob Ross – The Joy of Steeshing

 

On this day in 1942, quick-painter and beard/steeshman Bob Ross was born. He loved painting mountain ranges because he said they were like “Earth’s mustaches.”

Bob died in 1995 at the age of 52. Rest in Steesh.
