31 Days of Moustache: Dr. Fu Manchu

Name: Dr. Fu Manchu
Profession: Evil Criminal Genius
Claim to Fame: Has a moustache named after him!
Prime YAM (Years Active with Moustache): N/A

Why It's Awesome:
Dr. Fu Manchu made the moustache evil. Let me give everyone a few words of advice. If you see someone with a fu manchu, then run the other way.

This moustache is just legendary. The character of Fu Manchu has appeared in all sorts of media starting in the early 20th century. Many different incarnations of the character have appeared through the years, too. The most famous may be The Mask of Fu Manchu starring Boris Karloff (see above video). Even Christopher Lee and Nicolas Cage have played the famous character.

It's a true moustache phenomena.

Final 'Stache Rating (Out of Four Moustaches):

There's a moustache named after him. Do we even need to explain more? Anyone who can grow this 'stache and pull it off instantly is a legend. It's that bad ass. Plain and simple.

Named after him or not, I'm not sure I believe even he pulled it off that well. I'd give 3 staches.
