Who's Beard Papa?

So a little while ago our friend Sharon introduced us to this place called "Beard Papa". It's a pretty popular spot is what I heard. which explains why i hadn't ever heard about it until a month ago- some people are uncool. i'm like anticool. not to say that i am personally against cool things. more like the cool force of the universe evidently doesn't want to have anything to do with me. anyway, it's a japanese company that serves cream puffs, of all things. the parent company's name is muginoho USA (even though they don't have a franchise in noho they still have it as part of their name...well, north hollywood for those who bought homes there 10-20 years ago at $100,000 - $300,000, and noho for those who moved in recently at well over $500,000). so these things are huge. and they come with 3 filling types: vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. there's a little vat of each filling at the counter, and a big ol' pile of hollow cream puffs (these are much larger than the regular cream puffs you find at the grocery or the chinese bakery). when you order, they inject the filling into each cream puff for you. kinda like a freshly made sort of thing.

so who is beard papa? the only time i've been there, i asked the lady behind the counter, but she could not provide an answer. does he smoke his pipe when he's cooking up the cream puffs? that would not be very sanitary. and why does he look pretty caucasian even though it's a japanese company? and what's with the nose? can that thing be any wider? it must be some medical condition. is there a beard mama? she must be the brains behind the operation. and sharon said it would be more logical if they called it "papa beard", but since it's japanese it's called "beard papa", reminiscent of those random t-shirts and pencil boxes from asia with randomly stitched together words forming incomprehensible phrases, like "duck pond lily love freshness". or "sucky blog spring rain ever fly." ok i made those up. they're not as funny as the real thing.
