The Real Meaning of Movember: Albania, Obvi


Greater Albania, or Greatest Albania?” I am often asked.  And this past week, Albanians have once again shown that the answer is always Greatest Albania.  As any proper self-respecting nation should do, ethnic Albanians in Kosovo celebrated a seminal moment in their quest for independence by all growing moustaches.  As euronews explains:


In 1912, moustaches were in fashion when leaders declared Albania free from the crumbling Ottoman Empire. Many people attending a celebration in Kosovo’s capital Pristina wore or grew their own ‘taches’ to mark the country’s 100th anniversary. 

I wish we all celebrated the birth of America by walking around in powdered wigs.  That would be so, so much better.
