Does anyone else think that moustaches should be banned? And why did this trend hit full force in 2008? It seemed like everyone was donning them. Teenage hipsters with their peach fuzz ones were the worst. I mean, honestly, I think there's a better way to show that you are a "man" when you are a teenager than by watering your upper lip with Miracle Grow and sporting a little fur.
In all seriousness, though, the worst part is when food gets caught in a moustache. Disgusting! Didn't anyone teach you how to eat? Plus you have to groom it (unless you are the guy in the picture above). I know how much extra time it takes me to shave every other day, I couldn't imagine grooming a ball of hair on my lip. Not that I could even grow a full moustache, and if I did, it would be very fine and very blond such that it wouldn't even look like a moustache at all.
My father has a moustache, and has for many years. It looks alright on him, I suppose. I guess this is a case where it's acceptable, but there's a fine line between acceptable and getting with the times. I bet you it would shave 20 years off (no pun intended here) if you would just shave it off. And you can always grow it back if you decide you don't like it. But I almost guarantee that you will like it.
A former New Yorker-turned Tennesseean-turned Chicagoan who sometimes keeps himself so busy, he barely has a moment to sit down. Of course I sit for long enough to keep this blog. I'm a self-proclaimed news and fact junkie, and I love writing about funny, touching, amazing, annoying, crazy, or just plain boring things that I encounter in this crazy city we know as Chicago.
