Since Roger got points because he had that HUGE mustache, George Clooney is the lead in our Mustache Monday reviews! However, no one reached the elusive 15/15 perfect score. Alas for the current state of mustaches!

Mustache Monday: Salvador Dali

Salvador Dali, famous for his paintings. 
Salvador Dali, famous for being strange. 

This is a bad mustache. Let's not beat around the bush. We really don't like this one. It's the strangest thing in this picture, and let's face it: the man has a rooster sitting on his shoulder. Not only does this mustache look fake, it sticks up out of his face in a manner so bizarrely defying of physics that Isaac Newton is probably doing a great impression of a Rototiller as we type this. Honestly, we wish Dali had left the  surrealism on his canvases instead of trying to replicate it in real life. 

Salvador Dali, the 20th man in our search for a great mustache. Let's see how he ranked: 

Size: 2/5
Symmetry: 2/5
Originality: 2/5
Overall: 6/15

Not exactly a high note to round out our score of mustache reviews, but what can you do?
