These things weren’t jokes.

Remember the mustache?

We’re not talking about the “this will be hilarious” kind of mustache. We’re talking about the “I grew this hair on my lip because I’m positive you will agree that I look better this way” kind of mustache.

Television news personalities built entire personas around these things… right here in Buffalo!

Today, we pay tribute to the bygone era of earnest lip hair.
