Mustache Monday: Ambrose Burnside

Ambrose Burnside, famous for killing lots of people in the Civil War.

Ambrose Burnside, probably equally famous for his ridiculous facial hair.

We assume Mr. Burnside was a hunter because it looks like he attached his kills to his face. It’s very impressive how his mustache runs into his actual hair. Or maybe he is just trying to make up for the lack of actual hair with the overabundance of ‘stache. He should just shave it off so he can fashion it into a stylish toupee. He would need quite the mustache cup to keep this growth from getting into his tea (if you don’t know what a mustache cup is, look it up…every mustache enthusiast should know about it.) We believe this is where the author of batman came up with the idea for the bat signal, both because of the shape and the size. We mean really, you could see this thing from outer space.

Ambrose Burnside, fourth man in our quest to find a decent mustache. Let’s see how he ranked:
Size: 5/5
Originality: 3/5
Style: 0/5
Out of a possible 15, Burnside scored 8 points. Clearly not a winner, but not quite a loser either.

We give him props for confidence.

Side Note: Sideburns were named after this man. Cool, right?
