The Tipping Point
There is a dangerous time in the lifespan of a mustache, where experimentation can tip over into madness. Once a man knows the unctuous feel of the mustache riding confidently under his nose; once he understands the power he wields over women, small animals, and the bare-lipped; once he succumbs to its seduction... he could be tempted. Oh, it will start innocently enough: a modest sideburn here, a cautious attempt to increase his sideburn flare ratio there, maybe even the difficult full-blown faceshelf... but, eventually the chin will call to him, luring him into the trap of scruffy beardism! Beware, kind gentlemen, beware!
