Can someone explain to me what is up with mustaches? Dd and I saw sunglasses with mustaches attached to them, and I just now saw drinking straws with mustaches attached while surfing for Christmas gifts.

Mustaches are everywhere!

What have I missed?

Is it bad that I'm tempted to buy this for my new nephew due in February?

At first I thought you meant just this month and was going to say it is Mo-vember, but then I realized you meant all the fake ones and I don't get it either.

DD has mustache duct tape. She thinks they're funny and prefers to call them mustachios.

I blame Hipsters! They think they're funny so they've become popular.

Nope, it's been a fad for awhile now.

Wow! I wandered around the board a bit and got excited when I came back to see seven replies.

Then, I was bummed to see everyone is as confused as I am! :lol::lol:

I'm dying to know what the heck this is about!

Here is the site Helena posted on the stocking stuffer thread **warning** there are many odd mustache gifts! http://www.paper-sou...or-him/all.html

I thought it was fun and cute until I found out about mustache rides. I'll never be the same ever again. :blink: :ack2: :leaving:

It's a fad like pet rocks or troll dolls. (Am I dating myself?)

Been around for a while, and I don't get it either. Have you seen all the wedding mustache stuff? Jean nailed it--passing (but slowly) fad.

This! I do weddings with this indie/hipster theme. Lots of mustaches, mason jars, organic flowers, fashionable retro clothes, woodland creatures and lots of letterpress designs. It has spread everywhere.

It may have started with Movember but the hipsters made it popular.

I think it's a retro thing.
