Okay, seriously. Can someone please explain to me why there are so many mustache-themed items on Etsy, especially on the front page? I feel like I am missing something...

Kitsch is in, and nothing says "kitsch" like a good mustache. ;)

Okay, thanks. I sort of thought maybe there was some pop culture thing going on that I didn't get, since I don't have tv...

Some things are inexplicable.

Etsy is the only one who can explain the mustache thing. No one else gets it, not even the people who sell mustachioed items.

People are even having online "mustache parties" where the use paper mustaches or write a mustache on their finger and hold it up to their face and take pictures and then all post them on each other's blogs and stuff. It's kinda silly but funny.

Quite simply: Mustaches are awesome.

mustaches have been around ever since I've been here, and that's 4 years...embrace the mustache. ;-)

With all of the social media networks, blogs, and other stuff being so popular right now, the mustache items are being used in profile pictures as a fun, quirky photo. Necklaces can be held up to your face like a real mustache and it's kind of a joke thing.

Quirky things are in right now, especially with the younger crowd.
