Who Is Casimir Pulaski?

Casimir Pulaski Mustache

Kazimierz Michał Wacław Wiktor Pułaski
, or as his pals refer to him Casimir Pulaski, was a soldier and military commander who has been called “the father of American cavalry”. He was born in Poland before moving to North America. During the American Revolutionary War, he saved the life of George Washington and became a general in the Continental Army.

Pulaski is one of only seven people to be awarded honorary United States citizenship which is impressive, unless one of the other people is Cap’n Crunch or something. I don’t have time to look it up.

According to a google image search, someone had it out for C.P. and went around adding fake mustaches on all the pictures.

Alexander Graham Bell

Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone. He had plenty of extra time on his hands, as he probably only shaved 3-5 times a year.
