Movember Is Here…

Greeting my MoBros & MoSistas

It’s that time of the year, when some of the female of our species threatens divorce/break-up/murder as us males grow a bit of fur on our upperlip. Some females, however (MoSistas), are just awesome and support us MoBros during the month. A very big thanks to them!

There are few things in the world that have as many nicknames as the beloved mo…

  • Stache
  • Tache
  • Mo
  • Dirt Squirrel
  • Nose Neighbor
  • Lip Cap
  • Pubestache
  • Best Friend
  • Face FurnitureLip Hat
  • Lip Rug
  • Flavor Saver
  • Cookie Duster
  • Molestache
  • Lip Toupée
  • Mouth Brow
  • Mouth Merkin
  • Nut Duster
  • Smoke Filter
  • Snot Mop
  • Lip Spinach
  • Muzzy
  • Upper Lip Plumage
  • Face Fungus
  • Misplaced Eyebrow
  • Mouser

There are also very few things like the moustache that have as many different types that a MoBro can embrace… This list barely touches the surface:

  • Pencil
  • Horseshoe
  • Fu Manchu
  • Handlebar
  • Imperial
  • English
  • Chevron
  • Lampshade
  • Painter’s Brush
  • Toothbrush

But let’s get serious here for a minute. Movember is more than just a time to grow your mo, you’re growing your mo to raise awareness for cancer, particularly prostrate & testicular cancer, which affects men.

So what should you do? Firstly sign up on the Movemeber website, select your region, and then go from there. Join with a group of friends and form a team. From the website you are able to donate to the cause, each region has specific charities it goes to, for South Africa (my region), its CANSA & the Movember Foundation

Find out if there are groups in your area that are getting together for a competition.

Personally I am joining the Chingadas (local restaurant/pub) competition run locally in Port Elizabeth, called Tache for Cash, which makes it a bit more fun. At the same time though, last year they managed to raise R18000 for CANSA, with donations from the 130 participants. This year their goal is R40000. Big up to Josh for their 3rd year doing this.

See the Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/TacheForCash 

Join us if you’re in PE on the corner of 6th Ave and Main Road, Walmer at their new venue. Even if you’re not in PE, go check out the Facebook page as this year, for the first time, out-of-towners are also allowed to enter.

Here’s my mo from last year that won me the Freestyler award. Follow my progress this year on my MoSpace:
