History's Greatest Moustaches, Vol. IV

Groucho Marx, comedian/entertainer, maintained a matching set of moustache and eyebrows with such an odd combination of thickness and good grooming that they look fake. Incredibly fake. I think they just might have been fake.

In fact, his distinctive look inspired the most popular disguise of all time (see illustration borrowed from Grant Miller Media).

See the disguise? What a classic!

Isn't it, though? What do you think he used to enhance it, shoe polish?

Make your mask ... take your photo ... and use it for your profile headshot. It would be cooler than my treehead.

There's an ongoing gag in Woody Allen's "Take The Money and Run" involving the Groucho disguise. Quite funny.

Beth: Nope. The treehead would still rule.

GM: I'll have to check that one. I don't think I've ever seen it.

You just have to, I mean, have to, put some cop moustaches for Chapter V. Do the Bill Cowher or the Dave Wannstedt.
