ANNOUNCEMENT

I just had my last day of law school yesterday (exams not included).

In addition, there are a finite amount of moustaches that have been on the Supreme Court.

Therefore, I am tweaking the name and theme of this blog to GREAT MOUSTACHES OF HISTORY.

I welcome one and all to submit your favorites.

Umm. This tumblr must be updated … and often. The doings of the mustaches of the SCOTUSes are incredibly important not only to the democracy we all hold so dear, but to Justice at it’s metaphysical core.

I heartily agree.  However, there are a finite number of Justices, even fewer with facial hair of any kind*, and far too many cases for one beleaguered law student to sift through.

If people submit shit, I’ll totally post it, though.

*I tried to get David Mitchell to grow a moustache and send me a pic so we would know what Justice Kagan would look like if she could grow a moustache, but to no avail. 

The Court ruled that Kimbo and other Amistad captives’ moustaches had the right to mutiny the slave ship transporting them to Cuba like a boss.

Lucius Quintus Cincinnatus Lamar’s moustache had to be so epic to match his name, it went down and over his chin!

Rufus Wheeler Peckham’s moustache kept any airborne particles out of his nose and lungs, hence why he didn’t understand that bakers shouldn’t work more than 60 hours a week.

captainrobocop asked: I'm not sure yet if this is a great tumblr, or the greatest tumblr.

It is the greatest tumblr by a 8-1 decision.  Justice Thomas dissents because none of the original justices had facial hair of any kind (ignoring, as he always does, the fact that the original justices would be hard-pressed to consider him (or his mustache) an actual person)

George Shiras sneezed his moustache onto his jowls.
