Amongst the numerous global halls of fames, enshrinement into the International Mustache Hall of Fame is perhaps the most arduous yet ruggedly attractive. Induction follows a deeply scientific process overseen through a partnership between the Dept. of Nuclear Mustacheology at the American Mustache Institute, Wahl Grooming, the German-based Bertelsmann Foundation, and the British-based Science and Technology Policy Research Institute.
Upon opening nominations in late Summer each year, the general public – including clean-shaven mortals – may visit MustacheHall.com and nominate worthy candidates for the International Hall of Fame — potentially including American and global leaders past and present, 80’s television personalities, former pro wrestlers – it is up to the masses.
The Hall of Fame Inductee Commission (HOFIC) will begin a thorough quantitative and qualitative analysis, as well as a background examination of each nominee.
The HOFIC then breaks leading nominees into vertical categories from areas across humankind including politics, entertainment, business, sports, astrophysics, horseshoe fitting, and other segments of society.
Each year on March 9 – marking the passing of William Howard Taft – the new class will be announced in a glorious ceremony befit of a sexually dynamic person of mustache.
