Alex Trebek Brought Back His Mouth Hat and All is Right

I’m a fan of facial hair on men. I think it really upgrades them. In fact, I don’t trust a man who doesn’t have any facial hair. I feel like their face is trying to tell is something. I know I’m shallow. The Beard Gang is my favorite gang. Cuz: HEYYYYY.

One of the most famous facial coifs belongs (or belonged) to Alex Trebek. Y’all know Mr. Jeopardy is known as much for his moustache as he is for anything else. So when he went rogue some years back and shaved off his nose shoes, I was all WTF IS THIS, ALEX? He didn’t ask my permission or nothing! He just went and did it and I clutched my pearls and held a silent vigil. #BringBackTheStache. He looked so different without his mouth hat. The naked top lip didn’t quite curl allaway over for me. Lawd.

Well, I’m here to report good news. ALEX TREBEK’S FACE WIG IS BACK!

Alex Trebek Moustache

As my friend Charlie said “Can I have ‘Swagger’ for $1000, Alex?” Yes. Yes, you can. Alex knows he’s bae. I love me a smart man.

And can we give props to Mr. Trebek for aging so well?? Homeboy is 74 years old, and still looking GOODT! I bet he learned that the secret is to moisturize. WERK, SIR! And please don’t cut off the sub-beard again. Maybe this is why Mercury was retrograding.

That upper lip needs a coat and it is right back where it belongs. WHOOT!

The moral of this story is: fellas, please get some facial hair. Learn from Alex the Great.

    I don’t have facial hair because it doesn’t grow, and I’m 22 (the little I have is barely there). It’s unnecessary, and I’m glad it doesn’t grow more thickly; it would get in the way of seeing my large pinkish-reddish lips.
    As for Alex, he has enough gray on his head. More hair on his face is a NO. He looks a bit younger without it.
