A guy with a moustache walked past my work area in the lab today which got me thinking about moustaches. I normally keep a goatee because THE WIFE is disturbed by the fact I look like a little kid without it.

Me personally, I think I look like John Candy (before he died of course). The picture is of him, not me.
I began to wonder about the whole facial hair thing. I get frustrated with the trimming and shaving etc... I tried growing just a moustache without the goatee but a friend pointed out I looked like the cop from the "Villiage People."

Not a good look for me.

But anyway, I digress, the whole story is I was trying to figure out a smart alec thing to say to the guy such as, "Dude, you look like you just escaped from a porno." He probably would have taken it as a compliment, so I skipped it. I didn't want this guy to think he had sex appeal. None OK. He is chick repellant.

I moved to telling him that the 'stache made him look gay. But it didn't. Lets face it, most gay men whole grow a moustache have some fine looking lip-wigs. Take Freddie Mercury for instance. The man was gay, but three things cannot be disputed:

1. Freddie ROCKED! He was without a doubt the master of the stage!
2. Freddie could sing like nobody else! Hands down!
3. Freddie had a MANLY MOUSTACHE!

Nope, no insult to gay men everywhere by comparing the wolly worm on this guy's lip with the essence of masulinity of most gay men.

I searched and finally, FINALLY figured out what it reminded me of.
An IRS auditor!

Don't forget Tom Selleck's Magnum P.I. mustache. Hotness and totally not gay.

I'm with your wife on the goatee. I hate it when my husband shaves his off, he looks so much younger and less dangerous. Boring.

P.S. thanks for your comments and offer over on my blog. :-)
