This afternoon.

The Movember Foundation is the ‘leading global organisation committed to changing the face of men’s health’

It encourages all men of shaving age to sport the almost impossible to pull off face furniture for the 30 days of November or even longer.

    for someone like me who looks really, really good with (or without) a moustache, Movember is brilliant. i know it’s not *just* about giving men like me an opportunity to look hot in a different way, but still

    I’d rather die than grow a moustache, a sure sign of demonic possesion.

    I cite Hitler, Stalin and Tom Selleck as my bona fida proof of this.

    Also, men with moustaches are weird as well as daemonic.

    Also, also, charidee my hole. Hipster BS more like.

    Also, also, also, same for goatees, shur the divil is a goat.

      ah now Magnum deserves to be kept out of that line up Iano

      throw Dick Spring in instead

      He’s the only one whose tache suits him if I’m honest. The guy on the right is handsome but looks like he should have a bare face and buzz cut. I’d still do him though

          Not when I get my hands on the Adonis above I’m not! Well, he’s more Fintan than Fabio, but still

    Is this still going? I’d have thought blokes grow taches in the last few years to such an extent that you’re in a minority if you’re clean shaven and starting from scratch

      If you abstain from ejaculation, facial hair grows about 3 or 4 times as fast – so easy enough to catch up

        1. missred

          So you have a beard and you bash the bishop a good bit. Sure that must make you the ultimate inmpregnator

      Apparently*, men’s beards and moustaches are riddled with bits of food, germs, poo AND sperm – I’d prefer a clean-shaven man any day!

      * I was told in the pub one night.

        This is a more adult update of Mr Twit’s beard from The Twits, remember him? Made me glad I’m a lady and will never have to deal with this amount of facial hair

          I vividly remember that bit of the book from my childhood years.

          So very very disgusting and yet so very very satisfying.

          1. missred

            I’m tempted to make a reference to the bit where if he needed a quick snack he’d just burrow his tongue around his beard, in relation to Andyorp above. But I won’t

          2. millie st murderlark

            You should.

            I’m pretty sure mouldy cornflakes and Stilton cheese made an appearance

          3. Steph Pinker

            Were my assertion true, then there might be a few lads out there who could fulfill their own nutritional, sexual and scatological needs just by growing a beard/ moustache? Live and let live… with Live and Active Cultures etc…?

    I am taking part in a similar exercise for charity. Number Ones Only is the name of it. You don’t defecate for a month. The secret is two Immodium every morning.

      1. Brother Barnabas

        we should have a campaign – perhaps the month of December – to make fecestious an actual word

          1. Brother Barnabas

            you’re thinking of jimmy osmond, surely – december 11

            danny’s happy day is april 7
