2008 Mustache of the Year

Please cast your vote for 2008 Mustache of the Year by using the box on the right side of this page. Here are the nominees:


Shown here sporting the 'Upper Decker,' an original style of mustache invented for Mustache Day 2008 where he has removed the lower portion of hair, almost creating the illusion that the mustache is floating over his mouth or hanging from his nose.


Shown here along I-95, he did not let the hard hat or cold weather prevent him form sporting the Flaming Fu-manchu. He has really rebounded nicely from his "to catch a predator" look from last year.


Like your favorite homemade recipe, Joe created this mustache from scratch. To the dismay of his girlfriend, he did not use a beard of goatee while growing it. That is a great acccomplishment, in particular for someone so young. Expect him to be a major contender for the next 15-30 years.


The defending champion from last year knows all about growing hair. With all the anticipated competition, this experienced professional tried something experimental this year. He toyed with the Fu-manchu (shown here) before deciding it looked too modern and normal and that he needed to go more old school. Catch him going old school at the happy hour celebration.
