Movember - Give some cash, grow a 'tache

MykeMyke RockeratorPosts: 54
Some of you may be familiar with a tradition held in the month of November called 'Movember'.

The idea is to shave on the 1st of November and then not shave your lip (beard shaving is allowed...) again until the 1st of December.

Who will have the best moustache? Who will look the most ridiculous? Give some cash, grow a 'tache and find out (You're doing it for charity, at least you'll have an excuse!).

Donate to Cancer Research here

Check out the moustache growing progess on our Myspace page

http://www.myspace.com/movemberuk

You'll be pleased to know that a few of us here at YouthNet are involved and will be posting photos of the 'tache progress (A bit like Supersize Me but with Moustaches...)

Get growing!

Myke

    Lovely stuff.

    Just make sure you spend the entire month with them so you don't have to do any explaining on your own. ;)

    I might give it a go. Last time I had one, I looked like Hercule Poirot. And magnificent it was too.

    Some bloke downstairs is doing it to raise money for the charity he works for - he has raised a stupid ammount of money so far.

    However I think that you should all do it and raise lots of money and give it to the charity I work for as we are in need of it farrrrr more than cancer research (not that that isn't a worthy cause and all) or to youthnet.

  • BBBloodBBBlood Posts: 18 Fast Newbie
    I'll be impressed if they let him back in Costa coffee

    Damn damn damn, if I'd known about this earlier, ie if I was around here more often and on a proper computer, as opposed to my phone, then I could have had a lot of fun.
  • JsTJsT TheSite Graduate Posts: 18,265 I am one with The Mix
    I'm unshaven at the mo - although this isnt delibrate - due to lack of correct shaving equipment!

    Ive done my tash once since Nov 1 so it looks alright.

    My dad grew a ginger badger like Jim V's one summer holiday. It was bigger than that though, and he ended up looking a bit like Homer Simpson. Funniest part is that he isn't even ginger ... he has dark brown hair like me!

    one of my friends facial hair grows through kinda ginger, we all tease him about it, but only because he claims "it's fiery brown, not ginger!"

    You colour blind or what? Jim's is ginger where as mine... well let's just say someone told me at the weekend I look like Brad Pit. Which seems about right.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Jim looks like some kind of reformed Hell's Angel. Handlebar moustaches are the way forward.
