History hasn’t been kind to moustaches. Time and time again records of moustache wearing have been suppressed. Take for example the British Invasion. No, not that one, the other one. 1963, when the Beatles arrived on US soil. Clearly they were big supporters of men’s health and were all in “favour” of getting checked out as can be seen by this rare montage.
It’s not just recent times that have hid the existence of moustaches. It had taken skilled artisans years to renovate this priceless print of d’Artagnan and the Three Musketeers, and lo, what do we find? Moustaches! And on the musketeers. Who would have thought it? Obviously, these guys took “one for all and all for one” seriously indeed, and no doubt got themselves checked out regularly.
The French aren’t the only ones keeping moustachisim quiet. It has long bee suspected that Queen Victoria was an ardent fan, and through the use of the very latest image enhancement techniques, if you look carefully, you can just see the faintest signs of a long forgotten specimen on this rare painting. Though her moustache may be hard to see, I’m sure no one turned at at her court without getting the ok from a doctor first.
So there you have it. People through the ages have worked tirelessly on showing their support for Movember, but I’m sure there are more – maybe you can set me straight!
