Monday Mustache: September 1969 Life with Archie

Archie, Jughead, Reggie and the others from that squeeky clean bunch in the Archie comics didn't sport facial hair, but maybe they should have.

Instead, mustaches in the comics were often relegated to stuffy authority figures...

or angry fathers.

Maybe the Archies should have read their own comic.

Tucked away in the pages of the September 1969 issue of Life with Archie was an ad that could have transformed their young lives.

It even might have helped Archie win over Veronica, taking him from this:

and only $2 later, to this.
 The whole Archie gang could have benefited.

Maybe Betty and Veronica should go with the hair extensions instead, and at only $1 each, think of the savings.
