American Mustache Institute - Please let me join your mustachioed ranks!

As I am sure many of you were, I was deeply moved by Mr. Jimmy McMillan's The Rent Is Too Damn High party. I was also thrilled to discover he received a ringing endorsement from the American Mustache Institute, thus prompting the following email:

Shortly after, they replied:

I am now an honorary member of the American Mustache Institute. Jimmy McMillan has nothing on me. 

Also, it is really worth visiting Mr. McMillan's site

San Francisco Giants - Please sign my baseball card!

In the spirit of post-season baseball:

Several days later, I received the following and nothing more:

Nate isn't a starter - there's no way he's so important that he can't answer a few of my questions. I have taken the liberty of answering them myself in his stead based on careful internet research about his preferences:

1. Chocolate Lava Cake
2. No. 
3. "Hey."
4. Certainly
5. I am colorblind. My favorite color is grayish black. 
6. When I was 12, I accidentally killed my cat with a line drive to the head. He was by far the worst first baseman I've ever played with. 

Fascinating facts, Nate! Thanks for the card, Juanito will be thrilled.
