    People wearing fake mustaches gather in Grand Rapids, Mich., on Thursday.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Magnum P.I., Ron Burgundy and Ron Swanson would be impressed.
Organizers of an annual laugh festival in Michigan say they've broken the world record for the most people wearing fake mustaches.
Gilda's LaughFest is reporting that 1,544 people donned various shapes and sizes of dark 'staches on Thursday, the Grand Rapids festival's opening day.
The record is awaiting Guinness World Record certification.
If it sticks, the record would be the third set at the festival in as many years. Last year the festival broke the record for the most people wearing fake animal noses. The year before, it was people tossing rubber chickens.
LaughFest officials say the previous fake mustache record of 648 participants was set in September at a St. Louis Rams event.
