We have some splendid local mustaches, but the only suspense in this week's contest was for readers who forgot that Burt Reynolds is eligible based on his brief residence at a West Palm Beach addiction treatment center. Reynolds lives just north of the Palm Beach County border, in Hobe Sound, but he spent much of his youth -- at least the mustache-growing years -- in Riviera Beach.

In fact, maybe you need to unlock your own mustache mojo, Burt-style. Indeed, there's no time like the present -- by growing a mustache in the month of November you're eligible for Movember, the charity that raises money for prostate cancer. Let those clean-shaven friends laugh all they want. Your facial hair has a social conscience.
