I think they might be serious.

They being the American Mustache Institute.

Having first heard of them via the good offices of the Globe & Mail, which notes that voting on the "the greatest mustache in the history of sports will be revealed at the 2007 'Stache Bash in St. Louis", I went to see what the AMI has to say about itself:

"AMI continues to battle negative stereotyping that has accompanied the mustache since those glory years of the 1970s - the peak of mustache acceptance - fighting to create a climate of acceptance, understanding, flavor saving, and upper lip warmth for all mustached Americans alike".

The list of moustache (ha..) sporters involves precious few individuals that we British types will have heard of. Conrad Dobler? Walt Frazier? Anyway, vote here.

I suppose I could take nominations for British political moustaches (beards etc excluded...), which are pretty thin on the ground at the moment, although there is Caroline Flint's rather rakish Ronald Colman number.

Tsk tsk, Mr C. You do Miss Flint a disservice - she is clearly modelling herself on Ronald Mael, not Ronald Coleman.
