Turkish Moustaches under threat



"Love them or loathe them, it is difficult to avoid moustaches when you live in Turkey. They are a national institution. But as our Ankara correspondent Chris Morris discovered, the future of the Turkish moustache.

Since I arrived in Turkey last year, I´ve had a few hairy moments, most of them involving wild-eyed lorry drivers with an obvious death wish. But I´ve not yet had THE hairy moment - the sudden realisation, which apparently comes to most Turkish men, that I simply must grow a moustache.

 

There are several good reasons for that. It wouldn´t suit me, and my wife would find it hard to stop laughing.

 

But I am a little worried about the reaction of the average Turkish male - the nagging feeling that you´re not a real man around here unless you´re sprouting from the top lip. Make no mistake, facial hair is a serious business. And this isn´t an extended national version of the Revolutionary Command Council in Iraq, where everyone is apparently trying to look like Saddam Hussein.

 

Far from it. In Turkey, the moustache is a distinct part of your own personality.

 Truly a magnificent piece - just a shame I did not think about it instead of writing about dull boring things........ the exictment of growing a moustache must be almost too much to bear for the young pre-pubescent dudu´s <img src='/static/images/smileys//lol.gif' alt='lol'>

 I think that is why Tami is always so angry - it is the stress of waiting years for his moustache to arrive
