Very nice strip. Not portraying the obvious after the title, went by a different path.

Cheers from Portugal

Great comic. Will we have to rename the character Mullet and Moustache Boss?
Also, typo in panel 2 - "constructions workers" should be "construction workers."

if a moustache is manly, isnt a goatee even manlier by extension? i guess that makes the wolfman the ultimate man....

Baldness is most manly, so... there's no competition here, really.

A man's man is now redefined forever.

Men's men; mens men; mens' men?

both characters _still_ have their moustache at the end; whats up with that?

i think panel 1's 'experience' line is more true than many would like to admit. i was also thinking of 'the crying game'. kudos to scott for keeping this one out of the gutter

If I cant grow a mustache but my grandma can, is she more man than me?
I will ponder this tonight when I wake up crying, and have a little me-time watching "Mr. Mom" on Lifetime and crocheting infant slippers that have elephant ears. (They are so cute)

My mustache becomes my beard, which blends in with my chest hair somewhere on my neck. do i have a full body moustache, then?

That's it. I'm shaving off my mustache. I don't want to look like a mans's man. I want to look like the Indian dude.

Yet another splendid strip. Thank you. You always make me think in a new light about things after reading them.

what about women who have to dye their mustaches? I actually know a girl who does that . . . roflecopter!

Aw man. I love the punchline on panel 3

Eeeeeeyy! What about being shot by MAGNUM ??

I was reminded of the SNL sketch, featuring Captain Ned of the H.M.S. Raging Queen, full of 'manly men, doing manly things, in manly ways - with men!' My own household - me, my husband, and our two rambunctious sons - has been described as 'overwhelmingly masculine' by an old friend.
And both my husband and I have mustaches/goatees. So this strip was quite appreciated.

this puts me in mind of Mel Brook's "Men in Tights"
