Default Exhumation of Salvador Dalí’s Remains Finds his Mustache Still Intact

So this woman's mother is....the Dali Mama?

Don't blame me--I heard someone on the radio say it.

Officials said Friday that the artist's mummified remains were so well conserved that even his famous mustache had survived the passing of time
No surprise that Dali would experience persistence of mummery. Yes, I know that form has an entirely different meaning. Shut up.

Hair doesn't rot very fast; it's really no surprise that his mustache is still intact.
