On ‘Oprah,’ Dr. Phil shaves off his trademark mustache

In a move we can only hope is as socially significant as Kate Gosselin‘s decision to get hair extensions, Dr. Phil McGraw shaved off his mustache Friday on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show.’ Winfrey was broadcasting live from Radio City Music Hall in New York to mark the 10th anniversary of her magazine.

McGraw’s upper lip apparently hasn’t seen the light of day for 40 years, which sort of freaks us out a little when we think about that lip smooching his wife, Robin (who was in the audience, by the way).

Then we realize, hey, we’re thinking about Dr. Phil making out with his wife -- and that freaks us out a lot.


After the deed was done, McGraw said he felt ‘awfully drafty.’

This post really needs to end here, doesn’t it? But first -- a nonscientific online poll.
