    They look terrible. I have never seen a JUST moustache facial hair setting that I thought looked good. Moustache in a beard = OK, Moustache in a full goatee = OK, Moustache = Gross.

    Moustache owners, defend yourself, or accept fate, MOUSTACHES SUCK!

    In addition: The only thing they are good for is to be hilarious. A waxed and curled moustache to create that villianous look is funny, in fact, a way to big and bushy moustache is too. My friend grew a fu manchu because... it looks funny. But not attactive, I've asked several women to back me up and they've all agreed. The 70s porn star pervert look is out and I don't think it should have ever been in.

    I feel ya man. I thought about growing one as a joke once. Sometimes I tell my wife I'm going to grow one of those Ahmish farmer beards. That would be cool.:D

    I think the thin beard without a moustache looks worse than just a moustache. Also, ratty beards that look like face-pubes are the absolute worst...

    I do happen to have the sharpest sideburns east of the Mississippi, but someday I'd like to grow a moustache connected to them (I can't think of the name).

    Lemmy's got the burns too... not just a moustache so it works. Plus his warts gotta count for something.

    I, along with the american people, refuse to believe these wild accusations.

    I used to sport the 'stache. I like to think that I am one of the few guys that can pull it off - Tom Selick, Burt Reynolds, Mike N, and Me. Anyway my friends insisted I had to either shave it off, or pursue becoming a dentist or porn star. I shaved it off and my daughter (4 at the time) was very upset. She wanted me to grow it back and almost 5 years later she still wants me to grow it back. Maybe that's a sign that mustaches are coming back with the next generation?

    Stupid Matt: _only_ with a beard or goatee? What about the moustache that turns the corners coupled w/ a nice soul patch a la Frank Zappa? That's a respectable facial hair configuration IMO.

    The real reason I like the 'stache, which I have had for 30+ years, is that it allows you to savor
    that tasty morsel you were munching on a little
    longer, before you hit the showers ...

  19. Reminds me of a chum i have who has a big 'stache. He refers to it as his 'cookie duster' or 'soup strainer' :D

    Awe… Thor you don't count, they were in style when you grew yours! But, I have to agree with you about the flavor-saver aspect of it.
