the stache is back!


A couple of days ago The New York Times published this article about mustaches "inching their way back onto the lip". The article is short and a fun read (so go read it!), my favorite part:

“You got to wear it with this attitude,” Mr. Della Valle said. “Your mustache is always there, saying, ‘Yeah, I have a mustache, so bring it on.’ If you have a sense of humility connected to your mustache, it doesn’t look as good as it should.”

But for all its reclaimed machismo, he added, “The bottom line is this: The best response to the question, ‘Why the mustache?’ is, because it’s fun.”

In other words, why should you grow a mustache? Because it’s not there.

Take note, fellas. Start the year off right and begin working on your stache now, that way you can enjoy it in its full glory all spring and summer long.

But Strawberry, why in the world do you love mustaches so much? you may ask. I just have an appreciation for finely sculpted facial hair, is all. I think it all goes back to my childhood when my dad had a mustache, which is weird to even think about since he hasn't had facial hair of any kind since I was about 5 or 6. I don't really even remember him having a mustache so much as I've seen photographs of him donning a mustache. Either way, it was awesome. Mustaches are always awesome.

Something inside me says 2009 will be the year of the stache. At least I friggin' hope it is.

I have a beard at the moment, but I'll have you know that when the time is right, I'm shaving it down to a mustache.

Well, I don't know about the rest of the guys, but James Franco looks extremely hot with the mustache.

My sister made out with Franco when he had that mustache, and she said it "smelled like herbs"
