Movember

Movember is an annual, month-long event involving the growing of mustaches during the month of November. The event was conceived in 1999 by a group of Australian men from Adelaide.

Since 2004, the Movember Foundation charity has run Movember events to raise awareness and funds for men's health issues, such as prostate or testicular cancer and depression.

Rules
1. On "Shadowe'en" (October 31), the complete moustache region, including the entire upper lip and handlebar zones, must be completely shaved.
2. For the entire duration of Movember [November 1–30], no hair shall be allowed to grow in the goatee zone (any facial area below the bottom lip).
3. There is to be no joining of the moustache to sideburns.

So start growing them mo´s now, boys and girls, it´s for a good cause!

I don´t mind facial hair on other men, but I really. really hate it on myself, so this will be a big sacrifice. My facial hair is a light ratty blond like the rest of my hair. The first couple of days I will just look unshaven in a disgusting sort of way, after that the scratching and itching will start...

  1. Pffft you're lucky, mine is all sorts from palest blond to thick wiry black, with grand dad grey and white thrown in, not to mention the curly bits and the part that grows 5 times as fast - straight out. Looks like i was hit in the mouth by a pack of hamsters on crack who decided to open up a rag rug showroom.

  2. There is no other way to participate, for the good sake of it? My beard is terribly weak. :)

  3. Haha , sirchs moustache seems great!

    I am quite fond of rl-moustaches as long as they are broad and a bit bushy...

    For you Bock it imight be a bit like for women who never put red lipstick on... they think it looks bad when they try. Then suddenly they cannot be without it.

    After a while you get addicted, just give it time and you will be the hottest gay in the village!

  4. @ sirhc buddy, I am already dreading the arrival of that hair on the left side of my upper lip that inevitably starts growing into the lip. Excruciatingly painful and very irritating.

    @ Vanadis, I would suggest you stop shaving your legs for a month... ;)

    @Kandi, WTF am i not already the hottest gay in the village??? Are you trying to tell me something, gurl???
