Boy, those moustached fellas don’t miss a trick. Following yesterday’s post focusing on the American Mustache Institute, a nice man representing the World Beard & Moustache Championships 2007 got in touch to alert us Britishers to their event.

Anyway, trifling spelling-related matters aside, the AMI provides a portal for all things pertaining to hairy face-sluggery. For instance, you get a section for "Mustaches In The News", which currently has bits about living moustached legends such as Tom Selleck and Billy Dee Williams.
