### Who would have thought, mathspigs, that there was so much maths in hair.

.

### Today’s post looks at the Majestic Moustache or the Manly Mo and moustache graphs.

.

### Here are Mathspig’s two favourite moustache graphs.

### First, is the Moustache and the Decline of the British-Empire or 100-Year Itch @ TWC, which includes a pictorial record of the moustaches decline.

### The second graph is from the American Mustache Institute* showing the decline in corporate reputation with the decline in the popularity of the mo with PR professionals.

### THESE ARE HILARIOUS GRAPHS, but they are Gaga or Made Up Graphs.

### How does Mathspig know this?

### Because of the numbers. The Y-axis scale is missing or irrelevant to the graphs shown.

### These graphs are a bit of fun, but graphs are used to sell you products and some graphs can be totally misleading.

### See Graphs for the Lost and Bewildered

### Mathspig, promised you Manly Mo Maths. And there is Maths in MOs.

## Nick Cave’s Mo is a Parabola.

## John Travolta’s Mo is also a parabola.

## The Village People all parabola MOs.

## Captain Jack Sparrow’s

## beard is ∏ !!!!

## THIS IS A TOM SELLECK FRACTAL.

## Goodness me, it’s a Tom Selleck Eyebrow Mo Sierpinski Gasket

# MAKE YOUR OWN MANLY MO:

### Not all MOs are real and Groucho Marx trade mark eyebrows & mo were painted on.

### Why not get your own Manly Mo.

### Or, mathspig teachers, get your class to draw ‘parabolas’ on their hands and if a member of staff has a mo invite him into the maths class then on the count of three show him the whole class of ‘parabolas’
