Gear up for November people, it's almost upon us. Thanksgiving takes practice and if you aren't conditioned on game day you can really run the risk of hurting something. Want my advice? Train with several Thanksgiving on a Bun subs, that should warm everyone up a bit. Besides pounds of turkey, great movies at the Coolidge and the brisk smell of Christmas almost in the air, the passing of the October/November/December months means facial hair. It's gull durn beard season.
Refer above to actor, my Halloween costume inspiration and moustache guru, Nick Offerman, and follow him through the month of Movember as he spreads his beardly knowledge. Maybe you cranked out a quick Octobeard and are ready to move right on into Movember or perhaps you've been saving up for the 3 month tri-beard-fecta of Octobeard into No-Shave-November into Decembeard in which case...epic. Great job on a bold move. For the rest of us, head to the Movember website and read up on the message of the month and be more than just a hairy face.
So what exactly is Movember? It's a loophole guys; a scraggly, wild, or well-trimmed loophole that comes around one month of the year to allow us to grow our dreams big without fear of 'stache stigma. Now in it's 9th year, Movember was created to raise awareness for men's health issues, specifically testicular and prostate cancer, and the wispy sproutings above your upper lip might mean saving a life someday. This is a time to give the old Dadstache a test run, or break out a Fu Manchu, or my former personal favorite "El Gringo Peligroso" Give it a shot, have fun and promote men's health awareness while you're at it.
Advantages to having a Moustache
1. Go everywhere incognito.
2. Warm upper lip.
3. You get to say "Who wants a moustache ride?" (Allowed once per each group of friends per week)
4. Be the Evil Twin of yourself and do something you never would, but your Evil Twin might.
5. Burt Reynolds, Hulk Hogan, Tom Sellick, Ron Burgundy, and Eddie Murphy.
Remember you grow this moustache not for your self but for the balls of men everywhere.
