Michael Stipe was the lead singer of REM for about 30 years. They recently called it quits. In 2009, at the time of this picture, his bandmates had nicknamed his mustache “The Fertile Crescent”, I assume.
In 1978, Tim Allen was arrested for trying to sell a cop 1.5 pounds of cocaine. He was sentenced to 5 years in prison, of which he served 2.5 years because the warden was a fan of his steesh. I guess he took that time to develop his edgy comedy where he points out the differences between men and women.
