"Shakespeare was shoved down my throat in Theatre school and left a bad taste in my mouth, so naturally I wouldn't have thought of his "war" plays like you did. Why more armored plays?"

Movember Mustache:The Hitler

Posted on November 15, 2012 at 11:47am 3 Comments

Welcome to Movember! This year, we’re doing a famous mustache series. For our mid-Movember Mustache, the Toothbrush, 2 -3 centimeters of whiskers, synonymous with one of the most criminally insane minds of modern history, Adolf Hitler.

The Toothbrush was a popular American mustache style starting in the nineteen-teens, brought to life by entertainers of the day like Oliver Hardy and Charlie Chaplin. Once brought to Germany, the younger generation immediately took it on to replace the…

Zoologist, Desmond Morris, said in his BBC series, The Human Animal,  that a man's wide shoulders above a narrow …

People tell me I’ve hit the big time when I receive hate mail.

I write as the men’s entrepreneurial image expert in the Toronto Star‘s Small Business section, and one day, I got a 4 am email from an intelligent but angry reader who couldn’t believe that I would waste his time talking about something as unimportant as socks.
