La Moustache, 1815

La Moustache, 1815

Here we thought drawing a mustache on an unsuspecting friend was a camp prank alongside short-sheeting, or a college frat party stunt. Then there is my favorite example from Friends:

Mr.-Rachel

Imagine my surprise to stumble across the image below on The History of Love. Apparently waiting until someone falls asleep and then drawing a fake moustache on them is not a new phenomenon. I imagine it was just as hilarious 200 years ago as it is now… at least to everyone except the mustachioed recipient! Further proof that folks in the past could be as silly and immature as they can be today!
