Moustache wearers, from left: Tom Selleck, Henry Cavill and Jamie Foxx

It’s happening, as I long feared
Now men turn their backs on the beard
But a hairy top lip
When the rest gets a clip
Will always strike me as plain weird.

    it’s mystifying that Henry Cavill continues to get work as an actor, he’s abysmal.
    Am I missing something?
    Is he a ride and just not my type?

      It really depends upon the role. He was excellent in The Man From UNCLE. Also had a short but memorable role in Stardust as a pompous fop.

            The Prince of Darkness himself, Marty Moustache, thanks for that one, locks down my point completely.

            Moustache = evil.

    Magnum’s looks proper
    Like he could play during Wexford

    Jamie Foxx’s now I dunno what ta’ make ov’ it
    It looks more like a narrow rim over his upper lip
    And not in the slightest bit manly

      Ah FFS

      Play for Wexford

      Apologies
      I’ve the flu
      The real one now
      Not the man snowflakey suger lumpy one

    Speaking of moustaches, when a picture of Lloyd George was shown during The Irish Revolution documentary last night, my wife commented that he looked like Marty Whelan.
