Aaron Perlut, who has preferred to be called Dr. Perlut since bestowing upon himself a Ph.D. in nuclear mustachology, has been a mustache advocate for several years now

Do you have a personal favorite mustache aesthetically, apart from historical significance?

I have always been a big fan of former major league pitcher Al Hrabosky. Al, when he was playing, wore a Fu Manchu mustache that was so intense that it could strip paint, lead paint, off a windowsill, and he had a personality to match it, and I have always been kind of taken by old photos of Al’s mustache. I would also say Robert Goulet is also a personal favorite, which is one of the reasons we named the Robert Goulet Mustached American of the year award after him.

And further thoughts on the state of the ‘stache.

    you said it.

    I call it like I see it.

    You brought up Germany.

    Yes.

    Hitler had a mustache.

    He did.

    Mustached American heritage

  6. Deron Bauman on September 24th, 2010 at 9:41 am

    that was almost the quote.

    I also have great admiration for Dr. Martin Luther King, who really inspired black America to be very consistent with its support of a Mustached American lifestyle to this day.

    This makes me almost as happy as Randy Taylor.

  9. Deron Bauman on September 24th, 2010 at 9:44 am

    I feel like we needed this.

  10. Michael Smith on September 24th, 2010 at 9:47 am

    I bet Randy Taylor has a mustache.

  11. Cindy Scroggins on September 24th, 2010 at 9:48 am

    Yep.

    And yep.

    I don’t mean to be an asshole, Michael, but most of those Texas dudes are mulleted and clean shaven. Or stubbled. God I can be an asshole sometimes.

    Deron doesn’t mean to be an asshole.

    Randy could have a mustache to cover his hairlip.

  14. Cindy Scroggins on September 24th, 2010 at 9:52 am

    Let’s go find Randy and look at him.

  15. Deron Bauman on September 24th, 2010 at 9:53 am

    I picture him in one of those hunter jumpsuits.

  16. Deron Bauman on September 24th, 2010 at 9:53 am

    Honk.

  17. Michael Smith on September 24th, 2010 at 9:54 am

    And a camo ball cap?

  18. Cindy Scroggins on September 24th, 2010 at 9:57 am

    Randy could look one of two or three ways. We know he’s at least 200 pounda man.

  19. Deron Bauman on September 24th, 2010 at 9:57 am

    yes.

    yes.

  20. Michael Smith on September 24th, 2010 at 10:09 am

    Ok, now I don’t think he has a mustache. Dr. Perlut will be sad.
