It’s the last day of no-shave November. Despite the good cause the tradition is for, some of us are glad it’s over. Face it, guys, facial hair does not look good on all of you (ahem, Jay Cutler). But, when done right, it can be epic like the Titans of nose ticklers facing off this week: Queen‘s Freddie Mercury vs. Hall & Oates‘ John Oats. Can’t decide who has the better crumb catcher? Check out our thoughts on both while we get the shaving cream ready.
“I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)“ – I don’t usually go for mustachioed men, but John Oates’ brilliant mouth muzzle in this video makes me reconsider. A little. Regardless of your preference, there’s no denying this half of the Hall & Oates duo adds the perfect compliment to his baby-faced partner. I really believe him when he says “no can do.” Men with facial hair like that don’t play games. They chop wood, eat pancakes and write “Sara Smile.” And sorry, but Freddie Mercury’s ‘J-Stache’ does not have super powers and a cartoon. A freaking cartoon!

“Another One Bites The Dust“ – Get real, people. No one can compete with Freddie Mercury’s mustache. He is the champion, my friend. He will rock you because he doesn’t falter under pressure. Alright, enough of the Queen puns – it’s all about that ‘stache! If I were to take a guess at whose facial hair inspired the dawning of Movember, I’d pick Freddie (suck it, Tom Selleck). I’m fairly certain there’s photographic evidence of even my own father sporting a mustache like this back in the 80’s. Bottom line: Freddie Mercury’s chevron puts all others to shame. Another Friday Face-off bites the dust and Mercury rises to victory.
