Ooh, never heard of them but they do sound like something that would get a laugh at adrunken party. Is there a picture?

I don't get the whole moustache thing, I think I missed something. There seems to be loads of moustache-related merchandise, how did it start?

I suppose it depends how many times you have seen them and how much you have drunk!

I came across them at a large gathering one evening in the summer when we were all in a great mood and having a few drinks. I had certainly never seen them before and I think that went for most people there. At the time it was quite hilarious and many photos were taken. I expect it wouldn't be quite so funny the second or third time or if you were the designated driver.

These... I am quite amused by them! fgrin

Hadn't heard of them but now I've seen pics think they're great, sorry OP

Bloody hilarious! Where can I get some?

They are one of those things that cannot be Enforced Fun. A couple of times I have been in a group where we have all been rolling around in hysterics, it has been a good mixture of the dynamics, conversation and alcohol. Not just alcohol, kids were around and also joined in. A dinner party and someone brings them out with a declaration that this is now fun time NO.

I hate them, it reminds me of a 70's lack of personal grooming, shudder.

SisterMoonshine Sat 12-Dec-15 23:15:54

Shows the last time I went out.
They look great!

Busybuzzybumblebee Sat 12-Dec-15 23:17:30

Agree not remotely funny

PoppieD Sat 12-Dec-15 23:21:36

Amazon! Even getting them to stay on was hilarious ... Ermm after a few sherries...

Zippidydoodah Sat 12-Dec-15 23:37:57

I've just googled them and they're hilarious!!

But now I'm a bit depressed that I had never heard of them, therefore I need to get out more...............

(Luckily I have two nights out planned next week! Hopefully moustache beer mats will feature!)

madmother1 Sat 12-Dec-15 23:45:13

I want some too. The postage is too much though. Where can I get a set? I'd love some for Christmas Day!

OMGBabyNo3 Sat 12-Dec-15 23:54:05

I am so with the OP. I just don't get why that is fun?! Also can't stand fancy dress parties! Yet I promise I love going out and in really good fun grin

Moustaches and pugs as design motifs need to bugger off.

ChristmasEvePJs Sun 13-Dec-15 08:41:55

I got mine in marks and spencer, they are included in the Christmas gift 3for2.

KaraokeQueenOfTheNorth Sun 13-Dec-15 08:43:38

I'm sure you aren't the only person in the world, but I'd suggest you are could be in a minority. They are hilarious!

ShatnersBassoon Sun 13-Dec-15 08:46:57

They're not supposed to be thigh-slappingly hilarious. They're amusing, an ice-breaker, a talking point, a photo opportunity.

Go and have a Cherry B and cheer up.

SilverdaleGlen Sun 13-Dec-15 08:48:33

I agree with Enforced Fun NO.

Pissed in a bar first time you've seen them I can see them being funny.

Purchased, laid out for Christmas party hilarious FUN. <<shudder>>

Savagebeauty Sun 13-Dec-15 08:55:26

Indeed silverdaleglen

mincepieprivateeye Sun 13-Dec-15 09:20:45

It's like the whole photobooth props, I really don't get those either. A friends daughter got married in summer and had this stuff for the photos. What would have been beautiful wedding pictures are full of fake beards, moustaches, dame Edna specs and odd little hats on sticks. All very odd. fconfused must be getting old

honeysucklejasmine Sun 13-Dec-15 09:23:52

I agree! Absolutely not funny! And I hate fancy dress and fucking photo booths and even worse "selfie stations". How about putting your phone away and having a conversation?!
