Movember 2011

The moustache has a long and proud history, marred only by one particular German who I will not mention here (is that some kind of record for mentioning ‘that guy’ so close to the beginning of a post?), and continues to be a tried and tested measure of how manly a man you are*

The moustache is a worldwide symbol of power and virility and in fact the word ‘moustache’ translates (roughly) as:

“One damn fine specimen of a man” (source unknown)

The moustache is also a symbol of hope, at least during the month of November, when thousands of men across the globe unite in hairy harmony to accomplish a bushy and hirsute goal…to grow a moustache to raise some cash!

 Yes, you heard me right! Men across several continents will be trimming and waxing their way through the month of ‘Movember’ in order to raise money for The Prostate Cancer Charity (TPCC)…me included!! I have officially donated my face to Movember & men’s health; please give generously so it may grow!

Please, please, please help support a worthy cause any way you can!

Lewd comments and praise will count as support, but I’d much prefer you to donate cold hard cash…even if it’s just a small amount, every little bit helps. The Prostate Cancer Charity divides up the money raised between various prostate cancer charity programs which aim to raise men’s health awareness, carry out vital prostate cancer research and run valuable survivor support programs.

If everyone I know online donates just 50p each then that’s *counts on fingers* a HELL of a lot of money going to a bloody great cause!

Plus, BONUS, you get to see me with a damn fine sexy ‘tache!! As will the people in my local NaNo group…*gulp* Why did it have to be in November?!

Check out some of the suggested styles here and let me know what you think…

My proposed weapon of choice? ‘The Trucker’ aka ‘The Horseshoe Moustache’ aka ‘The Sam Elliot’ aka ‘The Hulk Hogan’ aka ‘The Biker from the Village People’…

Manly men…

 …yes, it has many names but they all boil down to the same thing: MANLINESS!

The rules of the event are simple:

ONE

ONCE REGISTERED AT MOVEMBER.COM EACH MO BRO MUST BEGIN THE 1ST OF MOVEMBER WITH A CLEAN SHAVEN FACE.

TWO

FOR THE ENTIRE MONTH OF MOVEMBER EACH MO BRO MUST GROW AND GROOM A MOUSTACHE.

THREE

THERE IS TO BE NO JOINING OF THE MO TO YOUR SIDE BURNS. (THAT’S CONSIDERED A BEARD)

FOUR

THERE IS TO BE NO JOINING OF THE HANDLEBARS TO YOUR CHIN. (THAT’S CONSIDERED A GOATEE)

FIVE

EACH MO BRO MUST CONDUCT HIMSELF LIKE A TRUE COUNTRY GENTLEMAN.

So, if you can please spare some loose change (any amount helps!) and pop on over to my donation page to help fund an extremely worthy cause. And don’t forget to check my blog during November for daily updates on my ‘tache along with pictures of my ever hairier face.

Thank you!

*or how unwomanly of a woman you are…

  1. How very commendable of you. We hear of money being raised for breast cancer but hardly any for prostate.

    I hope you’ll be posting pictures of your tash? I could do with a giggle….

    1. Hey, what do you mean giggle?! Are you not taking my ‘tache seriously??

      Yes, there will be pictures. Hopefully one a day and a quick update on fundraising and other hair related info…seen as I’ll be doing a NaNo post every day anyway 😀

  2. I have no issue with you raising some cash for thos wortwhile cause (in fact, jolly well done old chap) but basing your image of manliness from a leather wearing member of the Village People, well …

    1. Wait, wait, wait, are you suggesting the Village People weren’t the manliest men of all mankind?? 😛
