A new twist on salt and pepper

Moustache salt and pepper shaker set abandons subtlety to get a laugh

Foolish Gadgets

This salt and pepper shaker may not be the kind of thing you'd keep on your dinner table during a fancy dinner, but they'd certainly make a good gag gift.

The Moustache Salt and Pepper shaker are designed to fit together to form a perfectly twirled moustache. The halves are distinguished from one another by differing numbers of holes, and each is made from a solid piece of walnut. Which spice you decide to put into the half with extra holes is up to you: they come to you empty.

Even with its unconventional appearance, the set sold out on Etsy just under a week ago. No word as to when they'll be getting them again, but when they do, you can pick up the pair for $34.
