I think I'm the only blogger with the balls to break a story that the BBC originally aired in early 2004. I just break news like that.
The article says that the Indian government basically subsidized moustaches for their policemen, believing that they command respect.
I would pay money to be there for a budgeting meeting and hear, "Deepak, this station is hemorrhaging money. We have to cut back the perks. I even think we're going to have to cut the budget for moustache incentives. We simply pay to much more for moustaches. According to the FT, we have grossly overpaid the current global rate for moustache cultivation. If we want to be among the world's most savvy, sophisticated and financially viable police forces, we will simply have to pay less for moustaches."
Editor's note: I called them "moustaches" because when a foreigner has a 'stache that awesome, you have to call it a "moo-stache".
