The longest moustache in the world April 26, 2007

Longest Moustache in the world

Guess who I bumped into yesterday at Camilia, the Turkish coffee shop next to my office…The man with the longest moustache in the world! Mohammed Rashid, 66 from Turkey has a moustache that is an incredible 5ft 3ins (1.6m) long.

He is in Muscat as a part of a round-the-world tour where he’s charging people 3 Omani Rials (over 7 US Dollars) a time to have their photo taken with him.

I and my colleagues had a ball gawking at him, while the coffee shop made roaring business from the people who gathered to marvel at his manly ‘taches.

Moustaches seem to be a national institution in Turkey where to any discerning Turk,  the shape and style of your whiskers defines your personality.

Put in the words of a Turk, “You can always tell a man’s connections by his moustache.”

Now here’s a man that can make us feel quite facially challenged!

Badamsinh Juwansinh Gurjar, 60, an Indian villager, displays his moustache in the western Indian city of Ahmedabad February 29, 2004. Badamsingh displayed his 12.5 feet long moustache on Sunday in Ahmedbad, which he said he has not cut for 22 years, in an attempt to enter the Guinness Book of World records.

Robert Burko’s stache is still more impressive. That’s actually how this style Mustache got it’s name, The Burko
