For those who have not heard of this before, here is the main message to take away from today’s STUNNING events in scenic Toronto:
*** Snowstorms occurring during rush hour in Toronto are nature’s way of trying to kill you. You, the guy reading this RIGHT NOW. ***
As reported earlier today, nature has stepped it up a notch, hurling ice at smokers along Front St. However, there is one thing nature didn’t think about… the stunning power of the moustache and its ability to inspire and/or distract home-working slackers such as myself.
Things I have learned this morning:
1. There is a World Beard and Moustache Association (WBMA)… they have a pretty darn sweet logo.
2. They hold World Championships every two years. 2009 is to be held in Anchorage, which has all the City Fathers pretty chuffed up by all accounts. For more information, check out their website! I will say, if the following guys showed up in my town, en masse, I would think “Hey, the world is coming to an end, I’m gonna start looting!” or “Hey, check out the Partial Beard Freestyle that that guy’s sporting! Capital!”
I think my favourite part of all of this – except the moustaches – is the stated objective: “To raise the profile of beard and moustache clubs in order to attract new members and to bring to the general public a topic of interest and fun.”
3. Most relevantly, winter and moustaches are like *THIS* – this is a picture I found of a guy with a frozen face, essentially, but it’s made all the more noble and generally awesome by the serious icing of the moustache. Judos to him and his exploring of the frozen land that I have deemed “IceVille”. In other news my wild creativity has taken a hit due to tiredness from shovelling snow.
The lesson? Grow a moustache or wear a fake one. Especially when nature attacks.
