    Guess times sure haven’t changed in 98 years in the British armed services.

    If they want to send all the asparagus to Mars I’m fine with that!

    How strange to force men to grow mustaches as part of the military kit.

    Given how expensive Martian asparagus would be, I can see it being the next hot menu item for the one-percenters.

    The British Army has done similar things for many years. At one time, side whiskers (what I believe were called "muttonchops) were regulation for the enlisted men.

    I just realized something…the year the British Army stopped making mustaches compulsory for officers was1916, when they were losing thousands ( sometimes tens of thousands ) of soldiers in the first MINUTES of any given battle.
    Coincidence? I don’t think so

    If British officers shaved off their ’stashes in 2014, they could always buy plastic ones at the Dollar Tree.
