Since I don't smoke, I decided to grow a mustache— it is better for the health. However, I always carried a jewel-studded cigarette case in which, instead of tobacco, were carefully placed several mustaches, Adolphe Menjou style. I offered them politely to my friends: ‘Mustache? Mustache? Mustache?’
Nobody dared to touch them. This was my test regarding the sacred aspect of mustaches.
