Poll: Mo or no Mo

I am thinking about growing a moustache and goatee (because I can't grow a full beard) and want the opinion of foo of whether I should or not. I have attached a couple of photos. One with no mo and one with last years one.

I can't grow a full beard either. Don't let that stop you from letting it all grow out, though.

If you can't grow a beard, you need wait untill you're a real man and can handle facial hair. Kids with stragaly ****ty partial facial hair, look stupid.
I grew a full beard just sitting here typing this post.

You look happier with a goatee. And thinner.

You look younger without a goatee. And sweeter.

My wife hates goatees but loves my beard. I let it grow each fall, but shave a goatee a couple weeks before shaving it all off. I keep the beard fairly short, it helps keep my face warmer in winter, and collects lovely icicles + I hate shaving.

Mo with goatee.

Honestly the Mo alone look isn't a good one. Very few can pull it off. Tom Selleck and Sam Elliott come to mind, other than that, just not a good look.

I just need to grow a full beard to cover the scars on my face.

Plus, chicks dig beards. Then you shave them off and look all professional. They dig that too.
