My dad and most of my uncles have mustaches. They range from black to brown in color. Wearing a mustache is like carrying a tool belt. A stache is a right of passage into manhood. The mustache strikes fear into people who look directly into it. It is like an angry caterpillar guarding the lips. Musk. Manliness. Mustaches. They all go hand in hand. Having a mustache is like having an NRA membership. Nobody is going to mess with somebody with one. Burt Reynolds, Chuck Norris and George Harrison are some of the famous mustache possessors. It is not a coincidence that Reynolds was the chairman in the Man Law commercials. And as the saying goes: Guns don’t kill people; people with mustaches kill people.
