2. We know that Charlie Chaplin had that moustache for decades before...
...I don't know why Hitler decided to have it that way. He had a normal moustache in pictures of him in WWI.

8. The Hitler/toothbrush moustache was a particularly English style
Hitler, being the anglophile that he was, adopted it. It's true, look it up.

9. Supposedly, Hitler was a Chaplin fan
which is why he had that style (before that he had a late 19th century style handlebar moustache)

5. Pretty much
Here's part of the lyrics from the Sparks song "Moustache"

I tried a handlebar design
My Fu Manchu was real fine
My Ronald Colman made 'em blink
My Pancho Villa made 'em think
But when I trimmed 'em real small
My Jewish friends would never call

7. Hitler ruined a lot of things
The short little mustach, I'm afraid, was never destined for greatness anyway.

10. My friend's stepdad had a Hitler mustache
He was stationed in Germany and decided that the ultimate rude gesture would be to grow a hitler mustache. His superiors didn't like it, but it was within regulations and he got to keep it.

11. Yes
Yes, as every 7th-grader who has scribbled a little blot on the upper lip of pictures in boring books knows.

Even the 'normal mustache' has taken a bit of a beating what with Saddam and Stalin.... :silly:
