One of the things I try to do with this blog is highlight small, funny businesses started by entrepreneurs who hope to cash in on a good laugh.
Last September I bloggedabout the mustaches-for-cars business
created by Ethan Eyler, who got the idea while stuck in traffic.
My lovely and talented colleague, Courtney Reagan, notified me that the Carstache became the hit gift at her annual family White Elephant exchange. In the exchange, people bring a gift they want to, er, dispose of. At Courtney's house, everyone draws numbers. The person with the first number picks a gift and opens it. The next person can either pick another gift to open, or steal a gift that's already been opened.
As for the Carstache? Courtney says it was a gift given to "my wacky cousin Mark," which he promptly entered into the White Elephant exchange. "It quickly became the most stolen gift...my 89-year-old grandma even got in on the stealing action."
