Did you intentionally leave out the most (in)famous?

I was going to post a link to a picture of John Bolton, but Google Image search turned up this(NSFW) as the third result, and I just wanted to share.

I believe Reverend Jen deserves an honorable mention - if only for the Derek Smalls reference.

So how much are mustache rides going for these days? Is it still 25 cents?

See also: Maintaining your cool and Scene politics. (For my money, Cat and Girl is the go-to online comic for incisive commentary on the modern moustache fad.)

Can someone fix the Tom Selleck link? I got all excited, but now I'm just sitting here in my underwear with nothing to look at.

Moral Animal: the link works fine for me (despite the blank space stuff), but you can always try this if you really need... er, inspiration.

[Or maybe cut and paste http://www.20six.fr/pub/pegase_de_la/tom%20selleck%2002.jpg, which includes all of the %20s that your browser should need... just a shot in the dark.]

Aren't some of those just famous men who happen to have moustaches?

/negative Nellie.

Here are two very famous Oz moustaches for anyone who's interested.

Let's not forget the surreal appeal of Dali or the twin walruses of Gene Shalit and David Crosby.

P.S. Rollie Fingers is clearly tops for baseball players, but Rod Beck and Goose Gossage both deserve some credit.

Perhaps the point of not including Hitler's is that his 'stache was just a cheap rip off of Chaplin's.

Kind of a self link from the Uncyclopedia here...

Chuckles: exactly. Hitler was no doubt famous, but in my mind, those moustaches will always be Chaplin's.

Also, has anyone else ever noticed the uncanny resemblance Taft and Stalin share?

I hate moustaches. But I like madmen. So you have to hand it to a guy who applied his moustache to his own genitals.

The members of the Handlebar Moustache Club of London sport some beauties, and the Flickr Group Viva Mustachio has a mustached cat!

I believe the handlebar mustache is also called the 'bad guy' mustache.
Although it's not a mustache I'm a fan of the Jamie Hyneman look.
