Mustaches, Puzzles, Puzzling Mustaches

Ed Page of Danger Blog! explores the natural history of the mustache:

This was the mustache’s darkest hour. It was an hour that would last three million years. During this time, the mustache population was so small, it left no evidence that it even existed. No mustache fossil dating from this period has ever been found and, consequently, almost nothing is known about the mustache’s day-to-day life during these years. What did it eat? Where did it live? Did it interbreed with sideburns? The answers to these questions and to others like them are forever hidden behind a thick wall of impenetrable mystery.

Michelle Orange has produced a lovely radio piece about her dad and his puzzle habit. She originally interviewed him on the subject for McSweeney’s.

Some puzzling mustaches.
