(directly cut and pasted from Wikipedia)
The word "moustache" derives from 16th century French moustache, which in turn is derived from the Italian mostaccio (14th century), dialectal mustaccio (16th century), from Medieval Latin mustacium (8th century), Medieval Greek μουστάκιον (moustakion), attested in the 9th century, which ultimately originates as a diminutive of Hellenistic Greek μύσταξ (mustaxmustak-), meaning "upper lip" or "facial hair",[2] probably derived from Hellenistic Greek μύλλον (mullon), "lip"

Here's mine:



Mustaches are making a come back in a big way.  Harkening back to the days of Selleck and Kahlo















It feels like a jazzed up hipster motif.  Ironic adult hood.  The kids who were sporting beards 5 years ago, have gotten a little less lazy, and a little more money to afford razors.


Now with this resurgence, these hair lips are finding themselves everywhere...

Tattoos



Graffiti

And Celebrities


Mustaches...they're not just for child molesters any more!
