Love of the ‘stache – the 2011 moustache guide!

Darth Raymunn is back with his guide for this year’s moustaches, in honor of Movember!

Scooter Nation— 

Did you know that there is an American Moustache Institute? It provides a quick look through history, a style guide and the American ‘stache humble beginnings.

They told me I gave them the best milk moustache of anybody. 
—Yasmine Bleeth

History is full of epic moustaches. The Babylonians believed that a man’s virility was proportional to the thickness of his moustache and even swore oaths upon their beards. America has been all over the board when it comes to appreciating a good ‘stache. At certain times you only saw lower class citizens with them and then at other times in history it became acceptable with the blue bloods. It has been an ebb and flow part of the American culture. In honor of MOVEMBER, and the celebration of men’s health, I figured I’d share the different styles you may see out there so you can identify them by name.

Nation—

I moustache you a question. But I’ll shave it for later, but a little beard told me to tell you so I will whisker it in your ear. (Sorry, that was for Pilarski)

I leave you with this:
An eskimo brings his snowmobile in to the local garage because it’s not running well.
The mechanic takes a look at it and says “looks like you blew a seal”
The eskimo replies “NO, that’s just frost on my moustache!
