Join the Hooniversal Moustache Association!

moustacheI’ve decided to join up for Movember, and I think you should too!
The basic idea of Movember is that you shave off all your facial hair for the end of October — which is a bit tough for me, I’ve pretty much had my beard non-stop for about 8 years now — and come up with a new moustache design for November. Excuse me, Movember. Grow it out, take lots of photos and chronicle the progress.
The idea is to grow a moustache that will attract some attention so that people will ask about it, or comment on it, so that you can tell them you’re doing it for Movember. With any luck, they’ll be so pleased with you that they’ll want to donate a buck or two. Or, your significant other might contribute a larger amount to convince you to shave it back off again at the end of the month. Not saying that’s happened already…
I’ve started a Hooniverse “team” on Movember.com. If you’re a kindhearted individual, and would like to help raise money for Prostate Cancer research, start out there. Once you’re signed up, click the “Join a Team” button, and search for the Hooniversal Moustache Association! As it sits, I’m all by my lonesome, but I’m hoping some of our awesome Hoonigans will join in and make me proud.

        1. No problem at all. More an apology on behalf of our spam filter.
          It was just a keyword thing. The robo-nanny didn't catch on to your clever turn of phrase.

  1. I'm in! Mrs. engineerd isn't too thrilled with the idea. I think her exact words were, "You'll look ridiculous with a moustache! Please don't do this!" I put my foot down and am doing it anyway. Which makes me sound manly and tough and moustachey.

    1. Wrong!! As long as you can grow a full moustache, no man looks ridiculous. Welcome to the club!
      Looks at calendar.. Just a couple of days until the beard is shorn.. yikes.

      1. The last time I tried growing a moustache, it came in really spotty. It'll be interesting what a few years has done to my ability to grow facial hair.

  2. We did something similar for a cancer-stricken colleague at work and were told, roughly 17 seconds after the month ended, that as we were striving to put forth a professional image for prospective parents (alliteration likely unintentional), such ventures would be frowned upon in the future. I guess when looking for the ideal private school for one's kids, something about a bunch of dudes with spotty facial hair hanging around gives some parents the creeps.
    Which is ironic, considering the dude who drops the kid off every morning in his Quattroporte looks like John Holmes' stunt double. But I digress.
