According to new research from the American Mustache Institute, the Motor City is the 5th best city for mustached individuals in the country. That's something we can all get behind.
UPDATE: The Daily has a timely repost of an article on 'staches from 1951:
60 years ago this week (Oct. 28, 1951): Murray Kushell, executive vice-president of the Better Grooming Foundation, reported that college women admire mustaches. Kushell also stated that one main reason for the rapid increase in mustaches is that men discovered that women secretly admire being tickled when they are kissed.
This assertion was flatly denied by the women questioned at the University, and most insisted that they could not think of anything worse than prickly facial hair.
“Heavens, no!” a University senior replied when asked by the Michigan Daily if she liked “cookie dusters,” or moustaches. But she added that they weren’t bad on older men.
