Corner view "The Incredible, The Mysterious Mustache"

A moustache (American English: mustache; pronounced /məˈstɑːʃ/  
in RP* and /ˈmʌstæʃ/ inGeneral American) is facial hair  grown on the upper lip. 
 It may or may not be accompanied by abeard, hair around the entire face. 
The word "moustache" derives from 16th century French moustache, 
which in turn is derived from the Italian mostaccio (14th century), dialectal
 mustaccio (16th century), from Medieval Latin mustacium (8th century), 
 Medieval Greek moustakion (attested in the 9th century), which ultimately  
originates as a diminutive of Hellenistic Greek mustax (mustak-) "moustache", 
 probably derived from Hellenistic Greek mullon "lip". However,
 the Hindi word "moochh" for a moustache also bears a close resemblance.
*Received Pronunciation (RP), also called the Queen's (or King's) English
So far some history about the The Incredible, The Mysterious Mustache!
But.....!!! In Dutch a mustache = SNOR!! So, my cat Siepie 
decided that he really wanted to go with his "snorharen" (whiskers) on this CV!
But, Siepie forgot the word "haren" (hair) behind the "snor"....
Anyway, to pleasure him, I put him on my incredible, mysterious mustache CV!
Also I put alvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, 
markies de Dalí de Pubol on the illustration, he really had an incredible mustache 
and for the person he was,  he also was mysterious! I did one painting 
of him on the background. The unicorn has also a kind of beard / mustache!!
