On Thursday night, President Obama told Israel’s Channel Two that he often fantasizes about going around in disguise while on official trips —with say, a fake mustache — and just blending in. As expected, the Internet exploded.

“Sometimes I have this fantasy, that I can put on a disguise, wear a fake mustache and I could wander through Tel Aviv and go to a bar and have a conversation, or go down to a university and meet with some students in a setting where it wasn’t as formal,” Obama told the interviewer.

While I completely get the President’s desire to be normal, I have to point out that a fake mustache is probably not the best way to achieve this.

But if he does decide to go for the fuzz, I have to ask: the Handlebar, the Salvador Dali or the Chevron?
