The Handlebar Club Forum

"A Handlebar Moustache is indeed a glorious facial hair feature. Whether it stands alone or crowns some other form of facial hair, the glory comes from it being a 'Handlebar' and not simply an ordinary moustache." - Schnauzer

Last week I went to my doctor for my annual physical. While taking my vitals the nurse heart rate was over 160 bpm and my blood pressure was way low. The doctor came in, saw what was going on and decided I needed to go to the ER right away so he called for an ambulance. (Strange thing is I felt a little out of sorts but not as bad as what I guess I should have). Anyway EMS showed up and one of the guys had a nice thick handlebar moustache. On the way to the hospital between him giving me meds etc. we talked about how long we've had our moustaches, if we trimmed etc. When we got to the ER it seemed every nurse and doctor that came in to access my situation commented positively on his and my moustaches. When they finally wheeled me out to my room one of the doctors made me promise not to shave mine off. Needless to say I never expected to end up in the hospital after going in for just my annual physical. And I NEVER expected to see a brother handlebar wearer or have so much said about our moustaches. Very strange indeed. I'm home now and all seems to be going well. I have an appointment Tues. for further assessments and tests. Wonder who I'll see at that clinic when I go in? :imperial

bearwolf, glad to hear you're out of hospital, hope you get good reports Tuesday. And here's hoping you meet more new moustachioed friends.

Did you mention the forum to the EMT?

Hi BW, Sorry to hear about your emergency, but hopefully there will be a good outcome.
Great to meet a helpful and moustachioed EMT, I always knew that chaps with handlebars are the best when you need help or a device!!!
Good luck tomorrow!
PS, Hope you DID promise never to lose the moustache!!!

Of course I promised not to shave it off! ;-). By the way I just noticed that you, are a retired medical illustrator. I use to work in the medical photography section of the Educational Media Services at Duke Medical Center along side the medical illustrators there. Sure is a small world. :-)

Bearwolf,

Hope you get to feeling better and that the diagnosis/prognosis is that you just need to lay off the BBQ :)

Regards,
Kevin

Thanks guys for the well wishes. From what I understand it's the electrical part of my heart that's the cause and not the physical part. That's what threw me for a loop. My blood pressure and cholesterol has always been good, but as my doctor said "It's the electrical not the plumbing. :-) I did for get to mention the handlebar club but if I see him again I certainly will.

That sounds like good news Ben! Bet you're pleased with the result, and if you do see that doctor again, he'll be sure to remember you!
