So, it’s that time of the year again. In case you are unaware of the month, and our cover and subtle design easter eggs didn’t give it away, it’s November-or, more importantly, it’s Movember! Of course, Movember is an important time of the year. It pushes, promotes and highlights the importance of men’s health, and getting medically checked out through simple and fast examinations.
It is also the one time of the year that males all over the world can legitimately grow some of the dodgiest facial hair known to mankind, and be able to blame it on a special event while complaining about it and saying “I know how stupid it looks’’, but secretly love it and feel like Burt Reynolds. It’s OK fellas, no shame-I’m one of you. In celebration of that, we present our favorite, famous moustaches from days yonder.
Look, any list or article about moustaches is automatically void and invalid if Magnum PI doesn’t feature first. I’m sure that’s a law actually-or at least it should be. We can let the picture do the talking here. If you search ‘moustache’ in a dictionary, Tom’s face should be the picture next to it, with no description. Just him. I’m sure Ferrari sold 80% of their 380 GTS models based purely on the fact that it reminded buyers of Magnum P.I’s crumb catcher.
Prehaps the smartest, most intelligent cookie duster on this list, Albert Einstein always rocks a fleek ‘stache in any picture you see of him. We suspect, being the genius he was, he had some kind of special formula for growing, trimming and styling that involved years of study and research. As the old science saying goes (that I just made up): Mo’ intelligence, mo’ mo.
We have no idea of his name, but feel free to let us know if you do. No prizes, but you win bragging rights for life. Anyway-look at that upper lipholstery-it is truly a ‘stache to behold! Our guess is that he has such a mighty mo to suggest that, if you eat Pringles, you too can be as epic as he. We are unsure if that is a solid theory but we are willing to try, just on the off chance. Mine’s a tube of salt and vinegar, please.
The Spanish painter with an amazing example of lip foliage. Unlike the other entries here, Dali went with a thin, neat, styled ‘stache, which we think perfectly matched his artistic and surrealist style. It is easy to miss, but as he grew in fame and explored various styles of art, so too did his mo. Personally, I have always wanted a Dali style moustache, so that when I hatch evil and diabolical plans, I can twirl it between my fingers and emit an evil cackle.
While he isn’t going through his finest hour lately, there’s no denying that his mouth brow makes the Mo Hall Of Fame. Bushy? Check. Handlebar design? Check. White (the most rad color of beard/mustache)? Check. Not only has Hogans ‘stache won it’s way to numerous wrestling world titles, but it also starred in Mr. Nanny. It may just be unstoppable.
