When PopCap San Francisco isn’t hard at work doing the things that they are supposed to be doing, they are committed to exploring new ways to make the world a better place. And to prove it to you, we present the results of their most recent extracurricular effort:
*Proper gentlemen prefer the proper spelling of “moustache.”
Competitors were given two weeks – TWO WEEKS! – to grow their finest Fu Manchu, Franz Josef or A La Souvarov. (And as someone who couldn’t grow a proper lip-brow if he had six months and a thousand dollars worth of dimoxinil, I am green with whisker-envy.)
A group of the non-bristled gathered to vote on the results. There were very strict criteria by which the mustachioed were judged. And by “very strict” I mean “totally random.” A winner was eventually crowned, but first let’s have a look at a few of the runners up (as judged by me 10 minutes ago).
Best Hat – Engineer Jason
Best Sarcastic Eyebrow – Artist Jason
Best Most Obvious Cheat – Game Designer and noted Salvador Dali impersonator Scott
Finally, the winner and Moustache Champeen – Artist Stephan
For his effort he took home (or left on his desk as an everlasting tribute to his hirsute superiority) a magnetic mustache poetry kit and what looks like a two-pack of mustache erasers, which are either erasers shaped like mustaches or a miracle invention that will actually erase your mustache. Details remain unclear.
Keep up the good work, boys.
