. . . but I’ll shave it for later.
Recently I’ve noticed an all encompassing phenomenon that seems to have swept the nation. Not since bell bottoms were all the rage at Studio 54 has this trend been so societally accepted and even desirable. Wherever I turn, it seems that I am confronted with another example of how wonderful and sexy these examples of manliness and stud muffiness are. Although, it would seem that the last time these bushy beauties were so popular, they were represented on a certain TV detective from Hawaii.
I am of course talking about the glorious and regal . . . mustache.
The mustache is everywhere nowadays. It’s resurgence has come as somewhat of a surprise to me, because although it seems to be all the rage in websites and novelty items, not to mention iPhone cases, T-shirts and mugs . . .
. . . I have yet to see this resurgence become evident on real life mens’ faces. (Except for gay porn, Freddie Mercury look-alike contests, or the occasional ironic hipster mustache). The goatee seems to still be the facial blanket of choice, along with the always classic full beard. But the mustache has not been evident as a current choice in manly lip fuzz since the 70’s and 80’s.
So I guess my question is this . . . what is up with all the mustache love?
Recently I came across a website called steeshes.com, which is all about men and their mustaches. It was a recommended blog on WordPress, so one of the powers that be must also have an appreciation for these fuzzy lip warmers as well.
Not only that, but my good friend Jules, of Go Jules Go, is absolutely enthralled by all things mustachio. Her profile pic is of her in a mustache, she talks about mustaches constantly, and she even had a recent contest featuring mustaches. Not that I don’t love her dearly, but what is up with all this mustache adoration, hmm?
So, not wanting to fall behind on this new trend, I’m thinking I’m going to have to jump on this bandwagon before I’m the last loser to get how awesome this stache-loving society actually is. Based on this now newfound love of all things mustache, I feel it is my duty to share this love with all of you.
Remember how I mentioned novelty items? It seems like every store I have visited lately had some sort of mustache themed item. Well, with this awakening of my new mustachio adoration, I finally decided to purchase one of those items. And I will share that item with you.
That’s right, it’s giveaway time again, bitches!! This here is the magical mustache merchandise:
It is all yours for the low low price of . . . oh, wait. I said giveaway, didn’t I? Ok, fine. This is what you have to do to win this glorious item: Tell me who your favorite mustached man is and the reason that he is your favorite.
I will once again have one of my chilluns pick a name from all of the submissions. I might even make them wear a mustache. Not sure if that will qualify as child abuse or not, so once I do a little research on the case law, I will make a legal determination on that.
So for now, I will bid you all adieu. You have your directive and know what you must do.
