Can you name the musician, actor and wrestler that rocks the above mustache style?
Ryan Davis, of the UK designed these totally cool posters when he saw the correlation between brackets and mustaches. The result, three ‘stache legends’ so far: Freddie Mercury, Tom Selleck and Hulk Hogan. Ooh, that’s good!

P.S. While I’m on the subject, I just Googled mustache vs. moustache and both spellings seem to be correct. Maybe one is more regional to the US? Does anyone know? WordPress’s spellcheck says mustache is correct, but Wikipedia lists moustache as the primary entry. At least now I know that there is an organization called American Mustache Institute (otherwise known as AMI). Their primary role is “protecting the rights of, and fighting discrimination against, mustached Americans by promoting the growth, care, and culture of the mustache.” Dude, that’s awesome.
