Something sparked a mustache obsession with Ezra.
I know he is not alone. Mustaches, or at least fake mustaches, seem to be everywhere.
Ezra is definitely enamored with mustaches as much as any hipster, but Ezra's passion seems sincere. The mustache trend mocks the idea of growing a mustache. The trend says, "mustaches are absurd. Look, a picture of a pug with a mustache! Ha, ha, ha. Look, I'm pretending to have a handlebar mustache! Ha, ha, ha." Ezra is funny and enjoys making people laugh, but in this case I don't think his mustaches are jokes. I think Ezra genuinely would like to grow a mustache.
Maybe, someday he will succeed in making mustaches cool and un-ironic again. I hope this includes a starring role in a reboot of the classic 1980s T.V. series Magnum, P.I.
On a side note, my personal nominees for Best Implementation of a Mustache are:
