La Moustache, 1815
Here we thought drawing a mustache on an unsuspecting friend was a college frat party stunt or camp prank alongside short-sheeting and toilet-papering. My favorite example of face drawing is from Friends.
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!
