These Are So Hot Right Now (Why, I Don't Know)

funny word of the day: mustache

Mustaches are funny (no offense to any readers who have one) and they're more prevalent than ever, especially in hipster meccas like Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Personally, I prefer a clean-shaven man.

Definition from Merriam-Webster:

  • mus·tache
  • Variant(s): also mous·tache \ˈməs-ˌtash, (ˌ)mə-ˈstash\
  • Function: noun
  • Etymology: Middle French moustache, from Old Italian mustaccio, from Middle Greek moustaki, diminutive of Greekmystak-, mystax upper lip, mustache
  • Date: 1585

1 : the hair growing on the human upper lip; especially : such hair grown and often trimmed in a particular style 2 : hair or bristles about the mouth of a mammal

mus·tached also mous·tached adjective

If you want to see what you or someone else looks like with a funny mustache, try this awesome iPhone app (okay, my husband created it but it's still super cool) called uArt. You upload a photo of anyone and then you can select the kind of facial hair you want to put on them and then you can shave it into whatever style you like (or shave it off entirely). It's fun.

Note: I won't be able to post this week as I'm on vacation w/o access to a computer but I'll still put a FWOTD on Facebook and Twitter so please check there.
