I'm AntiStache, but if you must
As of late, it seems like a lot of brands and some charities have gotten on the grow a mustache for a ***** movement. In my opinions, mustaches should be left to 70's porn stars. There's nothing pretty about a man with face fur. It feels bad. It looks bad. And it has a certain leering quality, that makes me generally uncomfortable. Stalin, Hitler, Yosemite Sam all had moustaches. A moustache means trouble I think. But, I suppose if you must have a moustache, --to affirm general manliness and like-- you might as well ensure it lives on in infamy.
Rockstar Games is sponsoring Movember, the annual month-long celebration of the moustache, highlighting men’s health issues, specifically prostate cancer. Any man that grows a rugged moustache can send them a photo by the end of November for a chance to be immortalized as a character in Rockstar’s next epic – Red Dead Redemption.
So go ahead if you must, grow those monster locks, for the fame. But know fame isn't always pretty.
