Life All About My Mustache
posted by September 6 at 12:30 PMon
I used to look like this.
Now I look like this.
I know, it looks a little weird, but the looks it gets are even weirder—people keep asking whether it’s an ironic mustache or an unironic mustache or an aggressively anti-ironic mustache, which is really a kind of backwards irony. It’s hard to keep up.
Fact is, it’s a charity mustache. A mustache for the kids. A mustache for the annual Mustache-A-Thon for 826 Seattle, the youth tutoring and writing center.
It’s like a walk-a-thon for lazy people—some of us grow mustachios, others sponsor them.
So if you don’t hate children and don’t hate literacy and don’t hate me, you might consider donating here (via Paypal) or sending a little something to:
8414 Greenwood Ave N
Seattle, WA 98103
And now for the first Mustache Fact of the Week: The Dutch slang for mustache is de befborstel, which refers to the mustache specifically as a tool for stimulating the clitoris, probably from beffen “to stimulate the clitoris with the tongue.” (Dirty Dutch.)
