The 10 year mustache commitment

Mayur Vallanju's apartment got broken into over the weekend and one of the precious objects taken was his Passport. In a sign of strong commitment to the Rosstache cause, Mayur shot his passport photos with mustache intact. So for the next ten years whenever Mayur opens his passport, he is sure to be reminded of this competition and his lip broom extraordinaire. Bravo!

A request from Paul Berens for re-classification

Read and enjoy!

Esteemed B. Reynolds Board,

I cannot misrepresent any longer. I am fairly certain I’ve been miscategorized as an “Average Joe.” Time has brought about the truth: that my Northern German follicles belie this categorization and bellow out: “We have not gone through puberty, Sirs!...Well, we have, but maybe not such a good show of one!...Maybe there should have been more Monster Truck rallies attended during that period in order to toughen up…or possibly some prison time.” At any rate, it is for justice and public equity that I make this supplication.

I submit to the discretion of the Board.
