Mustache Checkpoint #3 and quote of the day (December 4, 2008)

Mustaches for Kids checkpoint #3 has just ended and the Guinness retention contest was won by someone other than your QOTD correspondent. This less-than-scientific competition apparently did not give style points for bad cop sunglasses, or we would've taken home the crown.

A picture from last year's Checkpoint #3, showing QOTD head correspondent in the sweet pink floral shirt ($3 at Salvation Army) along with the Wispy Tickler, who couldn't be bothered to dress up this year. He probably should respect my authoritah.

We're now down to only one week of mustache growth before next Friday's 'Stache Bash at Connolly's in Uptown Charlotte. We are approaching the $32,000 mark locally, and nationally are coming closer to $150,000!! Pretty awesome for a bunch of guys who are just neglecting basic grooming for a month.

Yesterday, we discussed Sean Avery and his classless comments about ex-girlfriend Elisha Cuthbert. Apparently his bad behavior doesn't end there, as you can read about his run-in with a 59-year old female fan of the Nashville Predators. He is 0% Gallant and 100% Goofus.

So, for today's mustache quote, we go to an old English proverb.

"A man without a mustache is like a cup of tea without sugar."

To translate that to Ah-mur-i-can:

"A man without a mustache is like a 40-ounce without a paper bag."

Now THIS is the kind of Old English proverb we can get on board with.
