Ladies* and Gentleman,
If you haven't already, it is time to start growing your facial hair for the glorious celebration of Cinco De Mustache.
This holiday originated from a saxaphone player in the band Less Than Jake. During a radio interview in college, LTJ invited myself and my co-DJ to spread the word of Cinco De Mustache. This was in 1998. Since then, the tradition has spread to those who know if it's existence.

Grow a beard or goatee or whatever you like, BUT on May 5th, it must be trimmed down to a mustache. The more ridiculous, the better because, as we know, not everyone can pull off wearing a mustache. except for Tom Selleck.

*Ladies may of course pencil in, or computer generate on a picture a mustache on May 5th. Unless of course, you really can grow one.

Dave, you will need to post a picture of you with a God-awful moustache. Wish I could, but alas, I'm performing at a big show at the end of April that I have to look my best at, which means no sloppy handlebars for me.

I actually can't grow a full beard or mustache.

Corey, please see the * section of the first post. :P


Ethan, I was in the same predicament last year. Couldn't grow one because I had to look presentable. It happens. Good luck with the April show!!!

I got the old band back together! PT and I are heading up to NY State to rock out with Pethan and my old group Pirate Theater. My hope is PT will bring many cameras again!

Corey, you can use one of my Mustache-A-Days, which I purchased at Cameron's. I claim another, and one has been used, so that leaves four more for anybody who wants them.

I don't know if I can live with myself if I begin celebrating something Less Than Jake created.

If you mean the person in the center, female.
If you mean the person on the box (as in, the recommended gender for product usage), then male.

I rest.

Person in the center. Clearly is a woman using a fake mustache.

And the man on the right has his own mustache and beard that he grew. So obviously the fakes are used by women.

That woman is obviously removing the mustache after the crazy man on the right placed it on her.

In other words, women don't want to wear these mustaches and only an insane person would say that the mustaches are for women. However, even insane people are allowed mustaches; I'll be sure to bring you one the next time I see you.

...and therefore less womanly, and therefore more of a candidate for a Stylish Mustache.

PS: Pushing this issue could be a big Must-Ache.

It was their old saxaphone player. From back when they were a cool ska band and still kind of underground. Anything they put out now I won't listen to because it's poppy bullshit.

Anyway, it was a college thing...we didn't focus on the Less Than Jake aspect. It was just fun doing something out of the norm. Currently I have a goatee that I've been getting compliments on (including from my wife). Half the fun is seeing the shocked faces when you no longer have it after a month. Or if they see you with the fu-manchu or whatever style you sport. Then you get to explain Cinco De Mustache, and they look at you like you smoke crack.

In light of new information, I am officially on board with this idea.

One week left until Cinco De Mustache. Feel free to post pictures of your 'stache on the 5th. If you feel like you've missed your opportunity, Nonsense. 7 days is long enough to at least grow a shadow mustache. Now I just have to find a simple, free website that hosts pictures. Any suggestions?
