Default Eyebrow Hall of Fame

I am always on the lookout for amazingly furry eyebrows. A lot of Englishmen and Irishmen are eligible, but this weeks two non-Brits are in the limelight:

Fernando Alonso, the F1 champion of the year.


Saddam Hussein, we all know who he is.


In the annals of fame are such bright lights as:

Nigel Lawson, dec. Chancellor of the Exchequer

Milo O'Shea, Irish thespian

Oi! That's highbrow, not eye-brow.

Neat, rick!

Yes, I wondered if a little surreptitious enhancement had taken place. Unfortunately, the site http://www.monobrow.com/monobro/ doesn't say who the chap is. Think he nurtures it with Baby Bio? Dunno. But with a personal forest like that one, the poor fellow could be playing host to thousands .....

Edit: Whoops. Just spotted it - he's Hansel Wadsorth, apparently. (I trust he's throttled his parents on both accounts.)

I'm not attracted to the monobrow/unibrow look.

I'm into the furry machismo of the Alan Bates-Ian Bannen brow, maybe early Connery even.

The statesmanly Robert Maxwell style is also appealing.
