Don't Touch My Mustache

I've been listening to the same ole music this past week so I thought: meh, how 'bout I list my favorite mustaches instead? (Admittedly, it sounds like a better idea in my head) Countdown to my favorite Mustache Style!!!

5) The Horseshoe – Totally nostalgic, it strangely has been become associated with southern rednecks or bikers, but I always think of Hulk Hogan http://i189.photobucket.com/albums/z239/anarchyphantom/Hogan.jpg

4) The Walrus – Once my favorite mustache of all time, this style still amuses me to no end and is also incredibly nostalgic (Commercials about diabetes anyone?). Wilford Brimley is my first memory of the Walrus http://i735.photobucket.com/albums/ww358/IsaacBrown24/brimley.jpg and let’s face it, Mythbusters wouldn’t be nearly so popular without the hypnotic powers of Jamie Hyneman’s ‘stache http://i368.photobucket.com/albums/oo130/Bitoluck/Grizz/jamie_bio.jpg

3) The handlebar – favorite of villains and well other folks, but more fun to see on villains, twirling their evil twirly mustaches MUWHAHAHA! *ahem* Snidely Whiplash is historically remembered for the look, http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y113/GGA1759/snidely-whiplash.jpg but I also adore Bowler Hat Guy from “Meet the Robinsons” http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d2/crys413/MeetTheRobinsons_BowlerHatGuy.png I can only imagine how much ‘stache wax these dastardly dudes apply daily…

2) The Pencil Mustache – Honestly, I used to not like this style at all, I found it far more creepy than suave. I’ve learned to appreciate it more in recent years though and tend to think of it as a gentleman’s ‘stache of choice. Gentleman-Creepy portrayed here by Vincent Price: http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg303/chokotto/Vincent-Price-7036451x11.jpg and Gentleman-Suave as seen on Rufino the Catalan Casanova (suave, though a touch caddish): http://www.photobat.net/batblog/2008/06/16/australaian-awards-2008/

And my favorite mustache of all time?

1) The Groucho Marx! – Ok, it’s not technically a style of mustache. It wasn’t even for many years a real mustache, but theatrical greasepaint! Still, there’s no denying that the Groucho ‘stache is one of the most universally recognized mustaches. I myself have no less than three different styles of Groucho Marx glasses (pathetic confession time what?), but can you really blame me? It IS glorious http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr142/CWarlord87/groucho_marx.jpg
