A Fine Moustache, Ruined!

Whilst perusing the Internet for interesting stories, news, and boobs, I discovered a curious photograph. No, it wasn't a grainy and disturbing crime scene snuff picture, or a still from an odd sex video involving horses and Charlie Sheen. Instead, the photograph showed the murder of facial hair. Specifically, the "toothbrush moustache."

We all know that Adolph Hitler turned the toothbrush moustache into his hairy heraldry. The emblem of a mediocre intellect and murderer. Take a look at this picture, though. It didn't have to be this way for the poor toothbrush moustache. Apparently, during World War I, an officer told Adolph to cut his handle-bar moustache. Hitler seems to have feared a naked upper lip, and thereupon turned to the bristles of a toothbrush moustache. And history was made!

And a fine moustache was ruined forever more.
