He.. His Mustache

I’m definitely the kind who would tell my friends, "Grow a mustache and I would never been seen in public with you” or even worse ..horrid..disgusting..Only perverts and cops..gross..really creepy hetero. I’m no Tamizh ponnu in this. Yes, I do understand that men consider that a mustache compliments their masculinity and rugged look. But I tend to think they look either like a greasy child molester or a painfully ironic hipster. And making it easy this mouth accessory doesn’t need any cost and effort at all. Stop shaving and the rest of the world will take care of it.

And from where I come, they take so much pride in having one. But to me and a pool of women out there concealing the area between the nose and mouth with tawny hair, Big no. Okay, a goatee (sometimes sloppy) or a 5’o clock shadow is just acceptable.

PS: If my man would be reading this anytime in the future… A costume mustache (as in the picture) is the most you can think of.

Growing mustache is easy comparing to shaving it daily. Of course there are a lot of women who likes it. But unfortunately man looks for his maximum probability to impress rather than taking a risk of impressing a minimum probability.

Don't worry, will see in your marriage who is going to set next to you at the stage and most importantly what's there between his nose and mouth :D

ud never know... hmmppff... but its just the difference of the gender... men can afford facial hair... women can afford lingeries... its not quite the same thing, but at least theres SOMETHING....

but its not just the looks u know- the little dead cells pushed out of the upper lip have more purposes than mere fashion-
1. food storage- every time u drink curd or have really mashed up rice theres a bit or two sticking to the end, saved up for a future snack
2. the randomized ends provide sufficient entertainment- instant goosebumps when u traverse them across the skin, tickly feeling when u rub them on the sides...
3. accumulated grease and grime adds salt to taste on every lick
4. sufficient volume gains ability to stick into the nose and cause that timely sneeze

i cld really go on this way... but seriously- give me a better application for that useless 1 inch of space between the breathing and eating vortexes...

Face fungus. Might just be the effect of reading too much Poirot or seeing too many Ayyanar selais. Or maybe its just a madurai thing. I actually like em.

Moustache - mmm hmmm. A french beard - now THAT is classy.

@markiv - not unlike a cow?
