Movember Day 30: Ambrose Burnside

Sadly we've come to the end of our glorious month of mo's, but I'm going to send Movember out with a bang by featuring a literal pioneer of facial hair cultivation.

This guy is Ambrose Everett Burnside, who according to Wikipedia was an American soldier, railroad executive, inventor, industrialist, and politician from Rhode Island. But we don't care about those things! We care about his triumphant face-forest! This guy grew such badass facial hair that they had to come up with a new name for the badassery. Burnside was the guy that SIDEBURNS were named after. What a total dude.

We hope you enjoyed Movember just as much as we did, and though many moustaches will be meeting their death at the hands of a razor tomorrow, they will live on in our memories forever. Or until next year, at least.
