Q: What is the quickest way to class up a flask?
Today's post is probably going to sound like an old Seinfeld stand-up routine, but I can't help it. I have a question--a burning, pressing question--that I desperately need answered, and since it's based in the trivial and banal, it's liable to sound kinda funny. But in order to get the answer, I have to ask, so here goes: what's with all the mustaches?
Seriously, Internets, I just don't get it. I get that trends happen, and nine times times out of ten they're silly things that just fun and gone faster than a fart on the wind, but why mustaches? And speaking of mustaches, why does the majority of them seem to be Snidely Whiplash's mustache? Y'know, the villain from the Dudley Do-Right shorts? What is that about?
Really, I just don't get it. But apparently they now make hats featuring mustaches, so I might as well do a post about them.
First up, we've got a mustache hat that is precisely what it says on the tin; it's a hat with a mustache. Pretty cut and dry, really.
But if there's something I've learned about searching for hats, it's that--even with a theme in mind--they can vary pretty dang widely, as this mustache hood amply proves.
And speaking of varying, here's two examples of how mustaches can give off two completely different vibes:
When paired with a monocle, it gives off a tea-and-crumpet, stiff-upper-lip sort of ambiance. The high-button booties just add to affect.
Then again, if you add a viking helmet, then the effect is more along the lines of "I'm gonna drink a lot of mead and sail in my longboat" kind of thing. You have to supply your own impish grin, though.
All in all, it looks like the mustache trend is going to be around for a bit. And while I may not understand this particular facial-hair fascination, far be it from me to hate on it too much. Considering how much I dig beards, it'd be hypocritical of me to say otherwise.
But let's just say that it's unlikely that I'm going to be getting a hat like this anytime soon:
See you next week!
