Movember

Although I think it’s an absolutely excellent cause (supporting prostate cancer and all that kinda stuff), I also think there’s also something totally dodgy, about Movember. Everywhere I go at the moment, even at work, I’ve noticed guys sporting facial hair. Are they raising money, I think to myself, or are they just waiting for a socially acceptable excuse to grow bushranger-like facial hair?

Beards, I like. There’s something about the beard which says “bloke”. It also says “I’m busy and couldn’t be arsed shaving” .

But the moustache gives out a mixed message about masculinity. It says “I’m not quite a complete bloke”. It also says, “I’m vain enough to spend a fair bit of time looking at myself in the mirror each morning”. This is especially the case with those finely sculptured moustaches or goatees.

OK, so I guess the honest truth is I probably couldn’t grow a moustache or a beard to save my life. After several weeks my beard would be patchy at best.

But then again, it would never get to that point, because the longest I can go without shaving is about three or four days. At that point, I begin to feel dirty, a little grotty.

And besides, after about thirty years of shaving I’ve now reached the point where I can do it without a mirror in the shower.

Tonight, however, I wondered what I would look like with a moustache. And with chest hair. And with head hair. And here’s the result…

  1. hmmm sexy!

    Here’s my embarrassing story about Movember. I’m so fed up with seeing all these pornstar moes around the office – why does it have to be the big David Boone moustache that they grow? Why can’t it be something more tasteful – read smaller?

    So I get a call from someone at Movember – Hi this is xxx from Movember… Oh Movember I say I can’t WAIT til it ends and I don’t have to look at wannabe porn stars everywhere I go… I mean I know it’s a good cause but etc etc.

    Um well, I was just wanting to know if you’d like to come to our finishing party?

    How embarrassment!

  2. Hhehehee. I remember going to see Monty have his shaved off down at Fremantle at the end of Movember 04. Very entertaining.
