I might even grow me a fu manchu

Since it's my last week of unemployment, I cut my beard into a fu manchu moustache.  Think Paul Teutul, Sr.  Think Hulk Hogan.  Think Fresh Pepper.
When I visited my grandmother's house, everyone laughed and said I looked like an asshole.  Some said I looked like a 70's gay porn star. 
When I visited my wife's family, my father-in-law laughed and my mother-in-law asked what I was thinking.  Then when we visited the wife's extended family, something very strange happened: nobody even mentioned it.  Not a word.  I don't know if that means that we're just not that close and they aren't comfortable telling me I look like an asshole or that they're a little scared of me.
