NKOTB giving us some Grown Man 'stache realness.
OHMAHGAH you guys, Hunky Funky Christmas has come EARLY this year. After finishing an epic two-year reunion tour, New Kids On The Block's Donnie Wahlberg tweeted a shirtless photo of all five boys/men, looking directly into the camera and sporting some pretty epic mustache game. In the accompanying tweet, Wahlberg added, "After 3 months cultivating, countless insults, thousands of requests to shave the #stache." We have to admit it: Despite NKOTB not making our ironclad short list of acceptable wearers of mustaches, we think they're KIND of pulling it off. And in every no way does it have to do with the fact that four-fifths of them are not wearing clothes.
Our inner preteen is level 10 freaking out that a) this happened and b) it's our job to cover it right now. Let's discuss each dude's shirtless 'stached style the best way we know how: "Step By Step." Dear Joey McIntyre, the world over has been dying for THIS view since 1988, thank you. Jonathan Knight is evidently preparing for his next Rolling Stone cover in a white tee, Jordan Knight's simultaneously rocking a faux-hawk and some "Miami Vice"-style chest hair, and the arm-tatted Donnie Wahlberg, who we're guessing is the ringleader of this 2012 'stache tour, looks satisfied in the center. Perhaps it was inspired by his close proximity to his mustache mentor and fellow "Blue Bloods" star Tom Selleck. Finally, Danny Wood channels "The Thinker," rocking the most robust 'stache of the quintet in the corner.
Looking good, guys. Just one question: WHERE was this photo taken? A bathroom? And who TOOK it? Though, sadly we must report, the mustaches were shaved. #allgoodthingsmustcometoanend
