Official Lorax App fills mustache app gap

If you ever wondered what your mom would look like with a luxurious orange mustache, the Official Lorax App will answer your burning question.

There's something about human nature that leads us to scribble silly mustaches on photos of people (and pets). For lazy graffiti artists, there's an app that can handle the mischief for you.

The Official Lorax App for iOS is a tie-in with the new movie based on the Dr. Seuss book about a fuzzy orange creature who speaks up for his beloved trees.

The app only does two things. First, you can hold it up to your mouth and talk with the Lorax's mouth moving along to your speech. Second, you can stick a 'stache on any of your photos.

There's one main complaint from the customer reviews and that's the lack of a Lorax nose. You just get the mustache. No nose. I'm not sure why this is a problem.

You might be curious why I'm writing about this since it's pretty much on par with the ultra-creepy Bachmann-Eyezed app . It's mostly because the press pitch was so catchy. Here's a sample:

Or perhaps it's your friends that are lacking some whiskers
Just pull up their photo and slap on some ticklers
Then email away, you can even send post!
To your friends and your loved ones you're missing the most

Granted, none of this earth-shattering, but the app is free. Just don't use it while you're in the theater watching "The Lorax," or you'll bug the other patrons.
