With the trends of today's disaffected youth being what they are, mustaches have gained an unfortunate affiliation with hipsterdom and its ironic ramifications. This gloriously dignified mustache spoon, however, is a reminder that there was actually a time when your mustache was a symbol of honor and of your manhood.

With the level of prestige attributed to the Victorian man's lady-tickler, he had to protect his beloved nose neighbor at all costs. This is where this holy of facial hair holies comes in. This incredible piece of craftsmanship had a perfectly placed, mustache-shaped cutout to protect a man's pride and joy from all sorts of offending soups, stews, and otherwise 'stache-staining dishes. The spoons are apparently difficult to find now, but if you do come across one, please, keep it from ironic eyes. They'll just turn it into a 'stache spork. [Neatorama]
