ST. LOUIS (AP) — The coveted Robert Goulet Memorial Mustached American of the Year award is being shared for 2013.

The tongue-in-cheek American Mustache Institute says Montgomery County, Pa., Register of Wills D. Bruce Hanes and St. Louis woodworker David Stine are co-winners.

Each received 24 percent of nearly 1.5 million votes cast. The duo beat out better-known men with hairy upper lips, including fictional newsman Ron Burgundy.

Stine builds tables and wooden furniture from sustainably harvested trees on his family’s 1,000-acre property.

He calls the Goulet award a “pinnacle moment” in his life.
