With the trends of today’s disaffected youth being what they are, moustaches have gained an unfortunate affiliation with hipsterdom and the ironic ramifications that follow This gloriously dignified moustache spoon, however, is a reminder that there was actually a time when your moustache was a symbol of honour. When your moustache was your manhood.
With such a high level of prestige attributed to the Victorian man’s lady-tickler, measures naturally had to be taken to protect his beloved nose neighbour. This is where this holy of facial hair holies comes in. This incredible piece of craftsmanship had a perfectly placed, moustache-shaped cutout to protect a man’s pride and joy from all sorts of offending soups, stews, and otherwise ‘stache-staining dishes. The spoons are apparently difficult to find now, but if you do come across one, please, keep it from ironic eyes. They’ll just turn it into a ‘stache spork. [Neatorama]
